It was with great sadness today that I read about the death of Frank Sidebottom.
He was never a figure that dominated my childhood but he was there. You couldn’t miss him. His giant papier mache head was at once cheerful and slightly scary, a great combination for a comedian.
I remember him mostly for his appearances in a comic called Oink. This was one of those things were I was never sure if I should be reading it growing up.
I remember his songs. I remember him on TV. I never saw him live.
It’s a sad day. God Bless you, Frank Sidebottom. A Bad Education salutes you.
