Minty, the band created by the legendary Leigh Bowery, released its greatest single “Useless Man” in 1993. Its breathless refrain (“Bootlicking, piss drinking, fingerfrigging, tit tweaking, love biting, arse licking, shit stabbing, mother fucking, spunk loving, ball busting, cock sucking, fist fucking, lipsmacking, thirst quenching, cool living, ever giving USELESS MAN!”) prompted The Sun to call them “the sickest band in the world” – something he was VERY proud of. Now artist and wowlebrity Piepke has animated the classic dance track with cartoon images of Leigh, in his various guises, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. If you’ve only ever seen pictures of Leigh before, you might be shocked by the voice you hear. But you’re going to love it. Oh, here’s a tip: That refrain makes for a brilliant ringtone.
