Klaus Nomi - Simple Man
Picked up a vinyl copy of the Klaus Nomi album Simple Man a couple of weeks ago (for a ruddy quid!) and only just got round to playing it. I've been a fan for years but never really heard the full on Nomi in all his fantastic plastic glory. Majestic. His death at the age of 39 (sadly one of many gay men who fell to AIDS back when it was pretty much a death sentence) robbed the world of a truly extraordinary talent. Oh to have seen him live eh?
