Nina Martin – I am Aggressive -Top Glam Pop (1976)

Nina Martin – I am Aggressive/ Never (Fall in Love Again) CBS 4488 (Germany 1976)

Four years on from Bonnie St. Claire’s Clap Your Hands and Stamp Your Feet, Nina comes up with a answer song which serves as a warning, where as an empowered woman she may be too hot to handle as she is in turn aggressive and possessive. No easy catch then our Nina… Tune-wise there are many similarities too with Bonnie’s classic. It’s a damn catchy affair and to these ears ripe for a reinterpretation (perfect for the Dahlmanns for example).  Born Marianne Weber but also known as Nina Martinique, Nina served as singer in the German band The Renders as Marianne Rebesky. The German picture sleeve is perhaps the most evocative, her stand out mane is also highlighted on the Dutch and Australian releases. The UK issue is bereft of a picture sleeve. 

Thanks to Marek for turning me on to this one
