9780099275718: Nico the Last Bohemian: Songs They Never Play on the Radio

In 1982 Nico, former model, film actress, singer with the Velvet Underground and darling of Andy Warhol's Factory was living in Manchester, alone and interested only in feeding her heroin habit. Over the next six years until her death in 1988, Nico toured the world with assorted thrown together bands. They made next to no money, appalled many of their audiences, and occasionally, on the rare nights when the music worked, pleased a few. James Young, the author, played keyboards for Nico throughout those years. The book is a tour de force in the literature of failure, recording the never-ending antics of a picaresque circus of addicts, outsiders and misfits who traveled the world encountering an equally bizarre and extraordinary mixture of people; poets, artists, gangsters, losers and drifters. John Cale, John Cooper Clarke, Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso are among those who appear in the compulsive, hilarious, but ultimately tragic story of Nico, the last Bohemian.
