Alan Platt - New Wave journalist

I went to interview him because I myself didn’t understand it, I wanted to know why he was doing what he was doing. Klaus Nomi and his strange...way...very done, very prepared, very classical, very trained, sort of precise and controlled way - he really wasn’t part of it. But people kind of dug him. NObody, NObody heckled Klaus Nomi. And you’d think they would. All these like big boot-wearing, y’know, tatoo-having, teeth knocked out-being, guys- You’d think they’d throw beer bottles at him. But he just shut everybody up. It was like “wow! That’s...That’s some weird shit.”
