If you were around in the eighties and nineties, chances are you may remember Frank Sidebottom, the comedian and musician with the globular head who lived with his mum in Timperley, near Manchester. What is less likely, however, is that you also remember Chris Sievey: singer, songwriter, would-be pop sensation and the real, flesh-made head inside Sidebottom’s papier-mâché one. Using material culled from Sievey’s own extensive archives, director Steve Sullivan brings us the story of a determined, talented man who merged with his own creation to the point where it was hard to tell where Frank ended and Chris began.
