Best Fall cover ever.

I always thought Frank was Marc Riley but I guess not.

nah, he was Chris Sievey. He was the guy behind I'm In Love With The Girl From The Manchester Virgin Megastore Checkout Desk...

I saw him without his head once. So to speak...

the other year for months throughout the summer he did a residency one or two Sundays a month at some railway club by Navigation Road metrolink station in Broadheath, Altrincham. (sw Mcr.)

yet would also play cooler-than-thou indie type venues in that London.

My mate sent me this link... it is pure Dissensus reading (it may well have come from here, coz he reads this place also.) http://www.kempa.com/2004/03/09/vinyl-data/

It's about vinyls in the 1980s containing computer code for the Spectrum ZX (computer games/credits)

It does have relevance to the thread though because Chris Sievely's band did one. I was reading about it 2 days ago and read about his death yesterday. :S RIP.

Frank Sidebottom is kinda the epitome of 90's tv imagery for me also.
