Duget had heroin connections and supported her own mild drug consumption, as well as Quilichini's and Nico's more serious addictions. Aura Records offered to finance one album recorded in London and produced by Philippe Quilichini. Contracts were drawn up, Aura advanced the production costs, and recording began almost immediately in April or May Sessions were attended by French journalist Bruno Bluma friend of J.
Johnson's, who later published the inside story in French rock magazine Best. The original album was plagued by suspicious circumstances. There are different versions of the story, and the truth remains ambiguous. With the album nearly finished and following a disagreement over money, Aaron Sixx, the head of Dacchuu No - AV幼稚園 - XH大暴年会2016限定 at the time, allegedly received a tip-off from the studio that Nadette Duget Nico's unofficial manager had arranged to steal the master tapes from the studio and sell them without reimbursing Aura, but since Sixx had a signed contract with Duget and Quilichini, Sixx was able to take possession of all the multitrack, unmixed tapes.
A legal battle ensued which reportedly lasted almost three years.

The album cover was a large, black "N" with a white background and a nod to Corsican French emperor Napoleon who ended his life in exile. According to Bruno Blum 's review, the new version was well mixed and unquestionably superior. False stories of the Aura label having released the only official album with Nico's consent and of Quilichini having secretly copied the first version of the album tapes to remix later emerged:.
Inhaving won the legal battle, Aura proceeded to release the album.
