Properly Good
25 May 2019 | by LouieInLoveSee all my reviews

People who aren't from Manchester & surrounding areas my not realise how big Frank Sidebottom was (especially during the late 80s). His version of: We Will Rock You (where little Frank takes it away) is a musical masterpiece, that, put the original to shame - a bit like putting a lovely bit of artex on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. A poor artex job is just a shambles, but, when it's done properly it's something to behold.

Anyway, this documentary is dead good.
