Paul Tschinkel just posted this segment of an interview he did with Klaus in 1982 for his TV show Innertube. It's just a very short bit with Klaus talking (Paul wrote that this was as much as could be salvaged from the tape, which had deteriorated or was damaged), but it's so nice to hear Klaus in his own words (and so clearly) :).

Today is the 25th anniversary of Klaus' death. I did put up about 35-40 photo posters on his block (St. Mark's between 1st and A) and bouquet of roses at his door (#103). This was at about 4:30-5:00 am...trying to be discreet. Sometime around 6:00 am, the sky just opened up. So my guess is, all of it was reduced to pulp. But I took pictures and put them on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/28877047@N08/?saved=1

This is from Oberallgau: (I moved it here. Everyone, I have been bitten by the lovebug. I would really love to hear stories of any kind from those who remember Klaus from the St. Mark's neighborhood, Club 57, Max's, Hurrah's etc. or the restaurants where he worked. Sad reminder: August 6 will mark the 25th anniversary of his death...

Oberallgau- 25 years! I am speechless. Klaus and I had many breakfasts together at Kiev in the early Mudd Clubb days. I considered him a genius then and certainly do now - and love how PRESENT he still is, completely outside time. Please let us know if there is any kind of party or gathering planned for the 6th, and thanks for your post.

ChiChi, thank you so much for your reply. It's those everyday type of memories that are the sweetest, i.e having breakfast at Kiev, and I so appreciate your sharing that. I've thought a lot about August 6th. I do think it would be nice to do something in remembrance. I had my own little kooky thing in mind before i got brave enough to post. If you or anyone else reading has ideas for a fitting 25th memorial, I would love to hear them. I have to say right off that I did not know him; I am...

I've got a sweet Klaus story. When I was a young punk... (yes sweetie, I was a punk!) I was playing bass in horrible art rock bands. (I was terrible). One day Klaus asked me to join his band. I was thrilled. Of course there was no way in the world I could keep up with the rest of the band but Klaus didn't care. He dressed me in these skin tight black Betsey Johnson spandex pants and made me stand in front of him (which was weird because he was the lead singer) and he would just stare at my...

Daddy, God, that is great stuff. But you quit the band--say it isn't so! The whole thing is just making me smile...the Betsey Johnson tights, putting you in front of him...he was shameless (I mean that as the highest of compliments)! Bless that crazy minx for trying, heh heh... And please...more stories...they turn a regular Wednesday Technicolor...thank you.

Well, I was only "in" the band for like two days. Two rehersals. I don't think the band even knew my name. He just wanted to see my fat ass in tights. He was a sick puppy. Of course, it's totally something that I would do. I liked his style.

*He just wanted to see my fat ass in tights.* Now *that's* an accolade! And so is this: *He was a sick puppy.* Heh. So dreamy... L.U.V. is not strong enough a word. He was too sexy for his clear plastic raincoat...Cue Klaus' version of "You Don't Own Me." God, that's a good one. A neighbor of his from those days said the song he practiced the most in his apartment was "I Feel Love."

A Question for ChiChi: I was wondering if this line from your poem Take Back the Night was a reference to Klaus: "...the Teutonic diva who began with Madame Butterfly and ended up playing Camille..."
Reply

Re: Klaus Nomi

Chi Chi ·
Yes, absolutely.. And when I perform the poem in this century, I usually read the line - "the Teutonic diva, Klaus, who began with Madame Butterfly and ended up playing Camille" - it is better, rhythmically, and reminds the listener that these are all real people, every one of them. You are certainly an astute reader - what did you have in mind for Klaus' 25th?

ChiChi, Thank you so much for your reply. I am just blown away by that. I have been thinking about it all afternoon since I read your message. The image just stands out so vividly--it is Klaus in high relief. And I love that you say "Klaus" in readings now, for all the reasons you cited. On a personal level, I am really enjoying the coincidence of the image, since I will sometimes look at a photo of him where he is looking really glam or just cheeky (or both), and I think to myself:...
