Description

Two tracks with New Order's producer plus Nico's selection of 1983 live recordings including 3 previously unreleased.

Nico needs no introduction - she will forever be remembered as the sultry German beauty whose melancholy voice was the '& Nico' part of the Velvet Underground legend. Following the VU she emerged as a solo artist. Very much at odds with a perceived glamorous life-style - a model who mingled with rock-stars and film directors, associating with Fellini, Brian Jones, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, Alain Delon, Jackson Browne, Tim Buckley and Iggy Pop - she embarked on a dark, daunting odyssey, with an Indian harmonium as the favored accompaniment to her deep Teutonic vocals. Both the punk and gothic movements acclaimed her. Developing a heavy drugs habit, she gigged frequently in the 80's, recounted in a book by keyboard player James Young. She died in 1988, after falling from her bike in Ibiza. In 1982 she recorded two tracks with Martin Hannett, most known for producing the similarly gloomy Joy Division and New Order, and backed by The Invisible Girls. These tracks, a reworking of the Velvet Underground's 'All Tomorrow's Parties' and her own brooding 'Procession', are now reissued, alongside heavily atmospheric live tracks selected from her 1983 tour, first only issued on a UK cassette. This double-LP version includes three previously unreleased recordings. 'Femme Fatale' includes versions of songs written for her by Dylan, Browne, Bowie and Lou Reed as well as Nico originals, in all, 18 tracks over 80 minutes. It is packaged with in a gatefold sleeve with detailed biographical notes by Nina Antonia. Limited edition in colored vinyl.
