For all you Frank Sidebottom fans. Frank was a cross between Tiny Tim and Pee-wee Herman. He liked to play his banjolele which was a cross between a banjo and ukulele. And I’m certain that if Chris Sievey heard my description of his character he’d be quite cross. with me. But actually there are no comparisons – Sidebottom was far more interesting and mysterious than any other….and he could play the banjolele!
A great story link from The Guardian by Jon Ronson.
