Gina X

Real Name:
Claudia De Held
Profile:
German electro pioneers Gina X Performance formed in Cologne in 1978. Art history student Gina Kikoine was heavily influenced by Lou Reed and Patti Smith, as well as the art avant-garde. The concept for Gina X Performance came together when she met Zeus B. Held, who was at the time moving on from rock to a more electronic sound.
Single "No G.D.M" and first album "Nice Mover" quickly became cult hits and a blueprint for 80´s electronic dance music. Kikoine later described collaboration "the absolute union of music, poetry and travesty."
Producing only four albums, the influence of Gina X can still be heard in artists such as Ladytron and Miss Kittin and the Hacker.
Gina Kikoine lives in Germany, active within the art scene as a writer and organizer.
