Nina Hagen: Nunsexmonkrock [Columbia, 1982]
Hagen is one of those Yurrupean artistes who consent to perform "rock" because it's vunderful theater. Big of her with her operatic training and all, dontcha think? And she does have a new-wave sense of humor--instead of taking on Maria Callas with her umpteen-octave range she does impressions of Linda Blair and Mercedes McCambridge. Unfortunately for those of us who believe rock is vunderful songs, her drama transcends the form. The exception is the scary antiheroin minidrama "Smack Jack."
