year and no Frank Sidebottom related threads! Must put that right… I was recently asked by the Frank Sidebottom Statue Fund to create some artwork for a poster advertising the ‘Franktastic Christmas party’ to raise money (the Fund is trying to get a statue of the late Frank Sidebottom erected in his hometown of Timperley). I was delighted to put pen and brush to paper and create a poster for this fantastic cause. The image is based on artwork created by the man himself for his Christmas record ‘Christmas is really fantastic’ only with frank wearing a Santa outfit (I fondly remember him wearing this at one of his pantomimes!) and the proposed statue inside the snow globe.
The event held at the Night and Day Cafe, Manchester on Saturday 15th of December promises to be an evening of music and celebration Frank Sidebottom style! Featuring music by The Stags, The Freshies (with Harry Sievey) and Hank Sidebottom and the Hellrazors’ (Rockerday Johnny & Bale and Frank Sidebottom’s long lost elder brother). Please check out the link and buy tickets and help get the statue up in the New Year! Thank you!
