Crazy Nina...



Nina Hagen is a German singer whose influence from the stepfather - the dissident East German poet and singer Wolf Biermann - will play an important role in her destiny. Little gifted for school, she left it at the age of 17 to go to Poland where she interpreted in a small group standards from Janis Joplin and Tina Turner. In 1973, back in East Berlin, she set up the group "Automobil" which will leave in history the cult title "Du hast den farbfilm vergssen". Then a few months later created another group, the "Fritzens Dampferband". She and her family were forced into exile in West Berlin in 1976 after her stepfather was stripped of his East German nationality. Being on the move, she left for London 1 year later and suffered the punk influence that reigned there. Return to Berlin in 1978 where she recorded her 1st album "Nina Hagen Band". The album immediately found its audience given the singer's atypical personality. But it was not until 1979 that everything suddenly accelerated when the now legendary "African reggae" came out in his 2nd album "Unbehagen". In 1981, she left for the United States after having divorced rock singer Herman Brood, and after years of excess of all kinds, she converted to… Buddhism. It will take another 2 years and the year 1983 for it to regain success with the planetary hit "New York New York" contained in the album "Angstlos" produced by a certain ... Giorgio Moroder. Other albums will follow but which unfortunately will not allow the singer to return to success. Nina Hagen will always have a special place in the 80s with this unique look and style that will forever remain her trademark, namely this subtle blend between gothic-decadent and punko-psychadelic.

Clips :


1974 ... who would imagine seeing this young girl with a rustic allure that she would become a few years later one of the most crazy singers of the end of the XXth century. Not many people necessarily ...



1974 ... timid beginnings in terms of success but which already show a more than obvious potential. And the future will prove that this young German girl has talent, that's for sure ...



1975 ... that's it, the young Nina is transforming and begins to show a delirious side that will become her trademark in the years to come ...



1976 ... the rise in power is slow but real. Year after year, title after title, the young singer begins to mark her territory and now appears as one of the future sure values of the German music scene ...



1978 ... that's it, it's gone for the great delirium. A delirium that she will push as far as possible, as much in terms of physical appearance, gestures as musical. An almost unique model of its kind ...



1978 ... its level of influence remains for the moment limited to Germany but it is intensifying from year to year, it is clear. It remains to produce THE title that will make all the difference and project her under the light in a consistent way ...



1979 ... the level of influence increases from year to year but so does the level of delirium. And that's just the beginning, it's to say ...



1979 ... well, for the big takeoff, it won't be with this title yet. But we are getting closer and closer, that's for sure ...



1980 ... visual and sound shock, here finally comes THE title that will change everything ! An incredible title which elevates her One Shot to the rank of planetary star and offers her a direct ticket to posterity. MO-NU-MEN-TAL !



1980 ... well, the years follow but hardly resemble each other ... An obvious lack of inspiration for this change of decade ...



1980 ... surely the trashest version of the mythical 'Comme d'habitude'. Poor Claude François will never get over it ...



1982 ... the years passed and this dear Nina is still wacky ... And that, being wacky, is a constant with her ...



1982 ... a piece almost accomplished on a melodic level. It's better ... for the melody. Because for the voice, it's still as aware ...



1983 ... the title of the consecration with this new hit where we find a somewhat muted Nina. Not for very long ...



1983 ... a very Dance year. She always does anything, but this time it's dancing. It's always that ...



1984 ...the 'change' ... Premonitory or simple diversion ? In any case, on this title there, there's better, it's clear !



1985 ... at first glance, it was a simple diversion because we find her in the same state of usual hysteria. Nina makes Nina !



1985 ... again in totally crazy fashion on a luxury cover of the title of Norman Greenbaum dating from 1969. Less trash than 'Comme d'habitude' in any case ...



1986 ... no, it's not possible, it's not the same. An Ultimate Slow by Nina Hagen, unheard of !



1986 ... then there, the Premium quality collector clip. When 2 of the most wacky singers of the decade meet, well, it's not that bad. Unbelievable no !



1989 ... three years have passed ... And this dear Nina is still as much...wacky. Nina is Nina !



1989 ... a year 1989 bloated in terms of titles produced but which will not allow her to catch up with the leading pack. An adventure that continues in Nina fashion, that is to say totally outside the usual standards ...



1989 ... another decade change on the horizon and a radical change in sound. Will this new decade be one of redemption ...?



1991 ... the sound has evolved in a notorious way which is rather in the good direction. But the phrasing, it, is always the same, especially on the intonation side. We will not remake her again as they say ...



1991 ... something really changed, it's clear. After the excesses of the 80s, we find a Nina at the same level as the others. It changes...



1991 ... even if the success was minimal at the beginning of the decade despite an obvious goodwill, what is certain is that she is far from being ridiculous, to say the least. We will therefore be largely satisfied with it !



1992 ... she will never have done anything like the others, neither during the previous decade, nor during this decade. Musically, it always sticks to the times. On the other hand, on the style side, it's always so wacky ...



1992 ... an unlikely association but one that works perfectly. Too bad it went unnoticed ...



1993 ... new association this time with Udo Lindenberg. They deliver here a version of Romeo and Juliet that will be unlike any other given their respective personalities, that's for sure ...



1994 ... a small temporary relapse which will have little effect on the course of events. We were afraid ...



1995 ... and always this very particular universe which will always be its trademark. The years go by, just like the decades, but nothing changes in terms of the glaring gap with the rest of the competition ...



1996 ... it is clear that the production of titles has sharply reduced in this decade 90 but the little that comes out is not without interest, far from it. Isn't that the main thing ...



1996 ... we suspected that even in the register of special titles at the end of the year, she was surely not going to do like everyone else. The proof with this title !



1998 ... a decade 90 decidedly more constructive than the previous one. Like what, when she wants ...



1998 ... she will have done everything to us ! Here she is in futebol mode, who would have believed it. And why not you tell me, we are no longer close ...



1999 ... the end of the decade that has come together with many, more precisely with the OOMPH! band. Two universes at least similar and which were bound to meet at some point ...



2000 ... and here she is entering her 4th decade of career. Who could have imagined that she would still be around at the start of the 2000s, especially with such an extravagant personality. And yet, she is indeed there !



2001 ... she will multiply the projects during this new decade and each time the result will be successful to say the least. It is clear that she has absolutely no intention of stopping there ...



2003 ... 25 years after its debut, we find her in a timeless and extraordinary standard. MA-GIC !



2004 ... impossible to stop her ! Regardless of the result in the Charts, as long as she takes pleasure in continuing the adventure, that's what matters most to her now ...



2008 ... we find her more and more with the younger generation and the mix works pretty well. Unfortunately, even this supply of new blood will not be enough to bring her to the surface ...



2010 ... she will even reach the decade of 2010 thanks to this cover for the least original of the title of Depeche Mode dating from 1989. A personal version which has not much to do with the original, it is the least that we can say ...



2020 ... we lose sight of her again for nearly 10 years and this time we tell ourselves that she will never come back again. Well it's bad to know her, the proof !
