Product Description

Born Klaus Sperber in Essen, Germany, Nomi dressed like an alien, sang like an angel, and electrified new wave-era New York. The classically trained tenor moved to the US in the 1970s. Influenced by Maria Callas, Marlene Dietrich, and 1950s sci-fi films, the "opera-singing pastry chef," as writer Glenn O'Brien described him, developed a unique look and sound that stood apart from every other act to emerge from the East Village. At the height of his fame, he caught the eye of David Bowie, with whom he performed on Saturday Night Live in 1979. Unfortunately, his AIDS-related death in 1983 curtailed any chance to reach a wider audience. Andrew Horn's evocative portrait rises above the ordinary by documenting a scene as much as its most original participant. Aside from a wealth of archival material, The Nomi Song includes interviews with Kenny Scharf and Ann Magnuson (but alas, no Bowie). --Kathleen C. Fennessy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Klaus Nomi-Here For A Little While Sept. 5 2005
By F. S. Barton-Coleman - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Caught this film a couple of months ago at an independent film workshop and could hardly hold back the tears. I saw Klaus Nomi in Columbus, Ohio during his whirlwind tour of the Midwest and still have my red and black button with the Nomi profile. It sure was different back then-the folks in Akron were so enchanted by this strange little man that he ended up on the cover of the Akron Beacon-Journal Sunday magazine-holding a huge oversized old boot from a flea market and smiling the most bemused little grin of astonishment. Through the interviews and private film footage on this DVD we get to see a little bit of the man beneath the make-up. The segments in Aunt Trudi's dollhouse almost broke my heart as she talked about what a happy little boy he had been and how all the children would come running when he came for a visit-contrasted with the way he died-alone and friendless as did so many others in the early 80's.

Buy this as a souvenir of a time that was filled with so many possibilities and so much tragedy. Klaus's life was certainly filled to the brim with both.

4.0 out of 5 stars Being a Klaus Nomi today is so much happier than it was before June 30 2005
By Tat - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A movie about Nomi seemed like an impossible idea that only occurred during one of my daydreaming sessions. But yeah, here it is, called The Nomi Song, and neatly packed with an incredible amount of footage and home videos of Nomi which certainly satisfy my increasing frustration of the lack of video materials of Nomi available to the public. The story of Nomi is about extremity - a man who tries too hard to make his ideas come true, that he burns out so bright and fast before we are able to perceive what just happens. His life and music serve a strong influence to who I am today, and Nomi's firm desire and determination to exploit his creativity and become famous, that eventually led him to a situation where few people are willing to be in, always fascinates me that I ponder if I should burn my creativity like he did and if I have the gut to go to where he once had been.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST SEE for old times sake ! June 6 2005
By BMOL - Published on

a wonderful souvenir for those who actually danced to the music of Klaus Nomi , like I did at the time .

Always liked the original and extra-ordinary and at the start of Nomi's career I've bought all of his records, fascinated by how different, but also how differred his music was.

Maybe because of his early death people never really got to know who or what this person would be in real life....

Apart from what little one could read in specialized music magazines about him nothing much was known about him ...

And I always wanted to know MORE about this strrrrange man .

This documentary gives us a glimpse in the life of this man, his art, his friends and what thrived him to be what he was.

A strange bird in music world ,which he is , still to this day!

This DVD-release is what lots of people waited for ,even if you're not accainted with Klaus Nomi or his music, this DVD will captivate you .If you like music, if you like original artists, watch this, you won't regret it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Will the World Ever Catch Up? June 16 2005
By J. Brady - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have been waiting literally half my life for this movie. I first saw Klaus Nomi performing in Urgh! A Music War when I was 14 years old( like most other teens in small towns across America , Nomi wasn't exactly playing for them in the club down the street ) and have been fascinated ever since. By the time I had gotten my hands on his two albums, he was dead and gone and largely forgotten, one of the first victims of AIDS in the world of the arts. His music literally defies desciption. It is all over the place and very difficult to put into a category ( this is discussed at length in this movie .) If you have only a passing knowledge or curiousity of this extraordinary entertainer, you must see this film. If you are a fan, it will be a dream come true, like it was for me, and will fill in all the holes in the Nomi story. It is his life, told with pictures, anecdotes, lots of concert footage, old interviews with Klaus himself and new interviews with those who knew him before he became famous. A MUST SEE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 21 2005
By M. Hawthorn - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Klaus Nomi, what a STAR. He was clever, articulate and above all an original talent. Unfortunately his short, but outrageous life was cut short. I first saw Klaus on a British "Pop" programme back in the 80's and was dumb founded by his amazing vocal and visual talents. This DVD does him justice and tells the story of his brief life with tributes from the people who knew him. One criticisum though..........more footage of Klaus on stage and his videos would have made this perfect.
