sad sad news
As is the girl on the checkout of a certain Manchester megastore checkout desk. RIP Chris.
I remember reading Oink! comics as a kid, always enjoying the Frank Sidebottom comic strips and subsequently seeing him live a couple of times since the days of Oink!
Whether solo or with his band, his was an act that I'd have a big grin on my face throughout the set. My favourite Frank gig was seeing him play in the middle of the Tate Britain. Strangely surreal yet somehow just right.
