Greetings, all. I'll be the first to admit that I've only really been interested in Nico for about a month, and so am really not as well-acquainted with her music as I should be, but it and her stunning beauty still fascinate me. I grew up listening to Bryan Ferry's version of 'All Tomorrow's Parties', which is much faster and more upbeat than the version recorded by Nico and the Velvets. The moment I got my hands on 'The Velvet Underground and Nico', though, it was pretty much love.

The deep, mournful drone that led off 'All Tomorrow's Parties' threw me, but I was intrigued enough after a few listens through to go after Nico's solo stuff, and I haven't looked back since.

But anyway, on to the gist of this post, sort of...

Thanks so much for the pictures. That was my favorite Nico period and there are too few of her from that time. The icons are great too :)

Wow! Thank you so much! It's so hard to find Nico icons anywhere. Do you think you could post H and J as full pictures? I'd love to have some stills from her part in Chelsea Girls!

Yeah, these actually aren't professional stills, just caps I took from a VU documentary that was up on YouTube for a while. (it might still be...) It had a segment that I suppose was from Chelsea Girls set to Lou Reed's song Pale Blue Eyes, and it was really pretty. But anyway, here's part of what I could snag from that...

That's the one that I used for both H and J, I believe.

There we go. And if you're interested, the documentary is indeed still up on YouTube, with some interesting parts of interviews with Nico, her singing (rehearsing?) 'Femme Fatale', and a silent clip of her from Chelsea Girls.

Here's the first piece that would be of interest

And the second part, which at the very end has the clip of her crying during Chelsea Girls.

Oh thank you! I love that part in Chelsea Girls, the one they show in Nico Icon. Do you ever post in Nico's thread in the fashion spot? You should post there since you seen like a big Nico fan like me. It's thefashionspot.com
