Nina Hagen - All You Fascists Bound To Lose

When I think Nina Hagen, I think first of her extraordinary appearance: a shock of black hair and some outlandish outfit. Maybe it's a PVC bondage costume, or maybe she's doing the gothic babydoll thing. Then that unique voice, the one able to flit between alien insect, waif-like naive and gritty bass. Seriously, she's got something like a 6 octave range. Maybe I'll think of her kicking off the Berlin punk scene back in '77, or her contribution to dodgy camp cabaret.

Or I'll remember the day that I posted her straight cover version of a Woody Guthrie song. Yep, in 2010 on her Personal Jesus album, Nina Hagen embraced the final taboo and went a bit country. Prepare to be shocked as you have never been shocked before.
