Frank Story: Jon Ronson

For three years, in the late 1980s, Jon Ronson was the keyboard player with the Frank Sidebottom Oh Blimey Big Band. Frank wore a big papier-mâché head - nobody outside his inner circle knew his true identity – and the act involved them doing oompah versions of pop classics, such as I Should Be So Lucky and Radio Ga Ga.

Those were Frank's zenith years. They toured the United Kingdom, playing to sell-out crowds in small-to-medium-sized venues. They rode high. And then it all went wrong...

Now Jon presents a one-man show – Frank – telling the true story behind a new fictionalized movie co written by him and soon be released, starring Michael Fassbender, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Domhnall Gleeson and directed by Lenny Abrahamson.

Part funny memoir, part movie diary, this is a tribute to outsider artists too wonderfully strange to ever make it in the mainstream.
