Frank Sidebottom Dies: A Nation Mourns

A keystone of Manchester alt.cult life in the the 1980s, along with the late Hovis Presley and the fortunately still thriving Henry Normal and John Shuttleworth, Frank Sidebottom, the top man of Timperley hung up his papiermaché head for the last time yesterday.
