THE BULBOUS PAPIER-MACHE HEAD WITH ENORMOUS EYES, THE CATASTROPHIC LOW-FI CATALOGUE KEYBOARD SOUNDS, THE TWISTED TAKE ON POP MUSIC…
Chris Sievey died in 2010 and, to a wider public, his name was almost certainly unfamiliar. But, to many, Sievey’s alter-ego Frank Sidebottom was one of the greatest comic creations to surface during the 1980s. Documentary filmmaker Steve Sullivan is currently in the early stages of a feature-length documentary insight into the life of Sidebottom and his creator, produced with the full cooperation of Sievey’s family.
In The Mouthcast Sullivan reflects on Chris Sievey’s peculiar genius, reveals his own personal encounters with Frank Sidebottom, and discusses production of the film BEING FRANK, which is funded by the crowd-sourcing model. Readers of The Mouth Magazine are invited to donate to the production costs by visiting the BEING FRANK Kickstarter page.
