1974. Nina and her band "Automobil" are the hottest act in the DDR (East Germany.) Their song "Du Hast den Farbfilm Vergessen" (You forgot the color film) is either "a subtle dig mocking the sterile, gray, Communist state," or a warning that Nina was shortly to don hot pink hair extensions and paint her eyebrows purple. Here's another video of the same song. Doesn't Nina look sweet?
1975. Be careful who you kiss, kids! You too may end up sneezing in bed with a red pixie 'do and a mod mod duvet.
1976. I have no idea what's going on here, but I suspect that this was very shortly before Nina's hippie parents were expelled from the DDR, and Nina herself fled to London and took up with the Sex Pistols. (I like your mustache, Nina.)
1982. By now living in LA, Nina releases her first solo album, "Nunsexmunkrock."
