Strange Interlude With Nico

Jim Sullivan, Trouser Press, July 1979

SITTING IN the second floor cocktail lounge at Howard Johnson's, Nico drinks an afternoon breakfast of Bloody Marys and beer. It's a dreary overcast day in Cambridge; it has rained off and on and once again the threat is imminent. But we're sheltered in here; the bartender is friendly — he brings Nico a special dish of cheddar cheese goldfish, and turns on the TV for the benefit of the half-dozen or so businessmen gathered 'round the bar. We can all be happy in our private asylum.
