05:35 pm - the Nomi Song
Earlier this morning I watched The Nomi Song (dir. Andrew Horn), a documentary/biography of Klaus Nomi. He was a New Wave performance artist with an amazing voice, a gorgeous countertenor and an amazing falsetto the likes of which haven't been heard since the days of the casterati.

I encountered his music on the Urgh! A Music War soundtrack, and I always meant to track down more of it, but never quite did. So it was quite poignant to learn how short his career was: two albums and a live recording before his untimely death - he was "one of the first gay artists to die from AIDS".

It just about breaks my heart.

Thank you! I think he epitomized what I love(d) so much about New Wave.

It is a really neat documentary.

I recently picked up a bootleg DVD of the Urgh! movie (dubbed off VHS) -- you've already seen the Nomi footage but let me know if you want to borrow it or anything.
