Pressed at Citizen Vinyl: Drama of Exile by Nico
- February 8, 2024 -
Just released on February 2, Nico’s iconic post-Velvet Underground return to rock gets a re-issue from Sundazed Records. The new Kevin Gray cut of Drama of Exile is available as a lavender LP, proudly pressed at Citizen Vinyl.
The album is available at Coda.
Of the album, originally released is 1981, German-born Nico “saunters through synth & post punk vibes on seven haunting originals and jaw dropping takes on both the Velvets and Bowie,” says Sundazed.”In Paris in the seven year gap between the recording of The End and the release of Drama Of Exile, Nico appeared to be doing little more than feeding a heavy heroin habit. When she met Aura Records founder Aaron Sixx after a gig there she told him that she was eager to start recording again. He told her to contact him when she was next in London. When she arrived it was with a new harmonium in tow — claiming the previous one had been stolen and that its replacement was a gift from Patti Smith.”
