Nico – Rare 1979 Concert Handbill & Autograph / Velvet Underground
A rare signed and inscribed sheet of paper autographed by Nico in 1979 (4 1/4″ x 7″), and a handbill for Nico’s 1977 appearance at San Francisco’s Mabuhay Gardens. Nico hadn’t played live in many years when she played Mabuhay and a limited number of other shows; two years later she played Los Angeles’ Whiskey-A-Go-Go, and our friend Nicole Panter (manager of LA punk rock legends The Germs) got her autograph–for sale here. Nico wrote “To Nicole of the Madade Imaginaire – Nico LA 1979” (Malade Imaginaire means “imaginary invalid” or hypochondriac in French.) The signed sheet and handbill have some edge tears and torn pinholes at the top, but as you can see from the scans below, look very good overall. Nico autographs are rare indeed, and here is a very nice one with perfect provenance.
