Dig It. However, I did like the industrial sound.

"Dig It" indeed.

Actually, THAT is an intelligable lyric!

Heck, I lived on a bus with that guy for two weeks, and I STILL don't know what the hell he is singing about most of the time. Guess I should have asked him when I had the chance.

I do beleive that Nina Hagan was Influenced and inspired by Miss Yma Sumac.
I love Yma sumac as a person and artist.I've heard a few Nina Hegan songs but
i don't like them as much. I like Nina Hegan for her Personality and Stage "weirdness" . Shes a very interesting person.... but i just don't like her much
as an artist singing wize.

And throw in Diamonda Galas...


I love Diamonda Galas. Coincidentally, her late brother Philip Dimitri-Galas opened for my band in 1979 with a brilliant performance piece. I might also throw in Ursula Dudziak.

I met Nina Hagen at a party in the fabulous 80s at a loft-downtown.
She enjoyed being the coolest of the cool and did not bother to be particularly polite; however, she is the coolest of the cool, she is not one of us.

I saw her again in the 80s at Atlas, hanging with Angelyne.
