Iconoclast: Klaus Nomi


Imagine hearing this on a Sunday morning, coming out of your East Village apartment window in the early 1980s. Beautiful.

These two clips are from the documentary, Nomi Song. It's a wonderful document about this fascinating man and the people who crafted his shows and wardrobe.

Check out Klaus' tux blazer and costumes (very Margiela, very Victor and Rolf). It perfectly captures the drama and theatrics of Klaus' live shows.

It's too bad his records aren't amazing like his original live shows. I sort of wished he kept his band instead of caving into what record execs wanted.
