i used to be a huge nico fan, never got people who favored chelsea girl to the marble index or desertshore (her & john cale were a dream team. they were darker, truer to her vision, a precursor to gothy post-punk [+elliott smith]) but now genevieve spins it a lot, i think i was too harsh. “these days” is delicate in its saturnine sentimentality, i get the appeal. that last line ruins me.

mostly i wanted an excuse to draw her. she was an alien kind of gorgeous.
