Nomi also collaborated with famed producer Man Parrish. Nomi is remembered for his bizarrely theatrical live performances, sporting heavy make-up, unusual costumes, and highly-stylized hairdos. His songs were just as unusual, ranging from synthesizer-laden interpretations of classic opera to covers of songs like Chubby Checker's The Twist. In the 1990s, Nomi was frequently mentioned in Dennis Miller's monologues as one of his favorite obscure references. Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh will often play Nomi's cover of Lesley Gore's You Don't Own Me on his program (as introductory music for news items regarding homosexuality). A cartoon called "The Venture Brothers" had Klaus with David Bowie.
