One of the most profoundly bizarre characters of the late 70s/early 80s New Wave underground scene, Klaus Nomi was a genuine counter-tenor who sang pop music like opera to enthusiastic club audiences. Through archival performance footage and interviews with his friends and fellow artists, Nomi's influence and unique style are brought to life 22 years after his death from AIDS. Featuring the music of Wire, The Marbles, The Bongos, Pylon, The Mumps, Chi Pig and David Bowie, as well as many unreleased Klaus Nomi performances, including an essential performance of 'The Cold Song' with a full orchestra.
