Nico: Desertshore (Reprise)

Richard Williams, Melody Maker, 31 January 1970

IT'S FUNNY, isn't it: this time last year Nico arrived in London, played two quiet gigs at the Roundhouse, and a bare handful of people wanted to know her. This time round she does 97 interviews a day, and is feted as the High Priestess of Weird. One is tempted to wonder about some people's motives. Never mind, it might just be a good thing, for Nico has always deserved some kind of recognition, ever since that haunted voice first appeared on 'Femme Fatale'.
