Klaus Nomi

I'm surprised that he wasn't a topic here already, but am glad to start one with this exciting announcement:

THE NOMI SONG opens February 4 at the Cinema Village

Winner of the Teddy Award for Best Documentary at the 2004 Berlin Film Festival, THE NOMI SONG is an engrossing look at the life of German-born singer Klaus Nomi, one of the most profoundly bizarre characters of the late-70s, early-80s New Wave East Village underground scene. Klaus Nomi was a genuine counter tenor who sang pop music like opera and introduced opera to enthusiastic club audiences. Just on the verge of international fame as a singer, Nomi became one of the first prominent artists to die of AIDS, but the reaction Nomi provoked was so strong that he and his music are remembered twenty-two years after his death. THE NOMI SONG features music by David Bowie, Wire, The Marbles, The Bongos, Pylon, the Mumps, and Chi Pig, not to mention numerous Klaus Nomi performances, many never before seen, among them Nomi singing The Cold Song with full orchestra.

Palm Pictures and Media Luna Entertainment present THE NOMI SONG, a film by Andrew Horn. THE NOMI SONG features various art and music personalities, including Klaus Nomi, Ann Magnuson, Gabriele Lafari, David MacDermot, Page Wood, Tony Frere, Man Parrish, Kristian Hoffman, Ron Johnsen, Kenny Scharf, Anthony Scibelli, Alan Platt - and featuring a special appearance by David Bowie. THE NOMI SONG opens on February 4, 2005 in New York at the Cinema Village, and Los Angeles at Landmark's Nuart Theatre.

Johnny is spinning at the party for this tomorrow night 2/2 - friends and admirers of Klaus email for the list..
