07 Jul 04 ·milhouse-paris: First of all, almost all of Nico's work is pure beauty. She's most famous for her work with or related to the Velvet Underground, including her "chelsea girl" LP. But for me this is quite unfair, because Nico was not just an "egérie", a "frozen beauty" or a "femme fatale" cliché. She was a stunning songwriter and singer: Three of her 70's albums (desertshore, marble index and the end)are simply wonderful. Sad and graceful as Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and other songwriters considered geniuses because they were born men...
Bridget St John is an english folk singer, whose records were released through Dandelion, DJ John Peel's record label, in the 70's. Her songs remind me of Nico or Nick Drake.
Take notice : surprisingly enough, there are 2 singers called Bridget St John. The 2nd one is an american pop/rock singer
