Nico: Songs They Never Play on the Radio | James Young

Regular price £10.99

'Songs They Never Play on the Radio' was originally published in 1992 - this new paperback edition comes fully updated with a new introduction.

 

In 1982 Nico was living in Manchester, interested mainly in feeding her heroin habit. Local promoter Alan Wise ('Dr Demetrius') hired musicians, rented a van and set off with the band on a tour of Italy. Oldham-born Author James Young played keyboards for Nico throughout this period.



Over six years, until her death in 1988, Nico toured the world, encountering poets, artists, gangsters, losers and drifters. Fellow-spirits including John Cale, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and John Cooper Clarke are among those who appear in this classic memoir of Nico.
