ZIM - Omar Rodriguez Lopez & John Frusciante

poor Nico, sounds like creative rape to me...

I just saw this quote from Nico regarding the production process of Chelsea Girl and it makes me so effing mad, (yet thankful for the present day where technology can be learned/utilized by those who  have the passion/drive/fearlessness to carry out their artistic endeavors without compromising for some two-bit middleman twat, gfy dick)

In retrospect, Nico said in 1981: "I still cannot listen to it, because everything I wanted for that record, they took it away. I asked for drums, they said no. I asked for more guitars, they said no. And I asked for simplicity, and they covered it in flutes! [...] They added strings, and— I didn't like them, but I could live with them. But the flute! The first time I heard the album, I cried and it was all because of the flute."[13]

As per Wikipedia:     Chelsea Girl is a traditional chamber-folk album, which influenced artists such as Leonard Cohen,[citation needed] with strings and flute arrangements by producer Tom Wilson. Nico was not satisfied with the album and had little say in production matters.
