Leigh Bowery: The Life and Times of an Icon – Sue Tilley (1997)
I saw him “give birth” at Heaven. Some Italian boys were so horrified they were flicking lit cigarettes at him. Now that’s an impact! From Club Kids to nu-ravers, so many have fingered Bowery’s ideas, we lose sight of how revolutionary he was. A fearless explorer, he did for dressing up what Picasso did for painting, or the drum machine did for dance music. An affectionate biog by his best friend.
