Panic on the streets of Timperley

Chris Sievey (AKA Frank Sidebottom) has died. Sievey fronted a band which had a hit with "I'm In Love With The Girl On The Virgin Manchester Megastore Checkout Desk"  and, my favourite, "Wrap up the rockets". Mrs Merton started out as a character on Frank Sidebottom's "Radio Timperley". Probably a northern thing from a particular time but he was just a year older than me.....
