Kevin Recommends: “Total Eclipse” by Klaus Nomi


he is my favorite german vaudevillian retro love robot 

When I first discovered Klaus Nomi in my early 20s (via his associations with Bowie) he blew my mind wide-fucking open. I hadn’t heard anything quite like him. Vaudeville meets Metropolis meets goth dance party? And holy shit, that voice — was that actually his real voice?? Un-fucking-real!

Klaus Nomi rules.

Come. Get vintage-future-gothic with me and the homey Klaus Nomi. Let his countertenor trill send chills down your spine, my dudes.

(Song recommendation by Kevin D. Woodall)
