Birthday Bash

Cannot believe you would have been 50 yesterday mr Bowery.  HOw time flies, you sure made an iconic figure, scary even, you were such  a tall, huge man who certainly made his presence felt…………    enjoyed your postumous birthday bash at the ICA yesterday, people watching, the music from taboo, the acts, the colour and the sunshine…. not sure about the “West life” guy performing the penultimate song, not sure what all that was about.

my memories of you started through Michael Clark, and the wonderful costumes you designed for him in his  early days at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith ( watch the video clip) , and your presence on the stage……………..  You made it ok not to fit the mould and make your own fashion,  you accentuated  and extended your large  body shape until it became and art form.  Australia  and your city of SUNSHINE certainly produced something very bright and colourful…………….

LIEGH BOWERY 1961 – 1994
