Membership of the I Should Be So Lucky Club - £100 (49 of 100 left)

For the hardcore Frank fans and Chris Sievey devotees, we’re offering something extra special this Christmas... a unique opportunity to peer deep inside Chris Sievey’s archive at the mountain of hidden gems we’ve discovered.

We’ve unearthed some unbelievable archive during the process of making the documentary, including numerous complete early Frank Sidebottom shows from the 1980s, lost Freshies footage, never-before heard Chris Sievey music, hilarious documents, illustrations, other personas, rare photographs, work-in-progress and some of Chris’ unreleased  projects.

Even the very best Frank shows will probably only be featured in the movie as 15 second clips at most. The I Should Be So Lucky Club gives you a chance to see some of these iconic performances and rarities in their entirety and gain the deepest possible insight into Chris’ unique creativity.

For a £100 donation to the documentary, you’ll receive 13 downloads, each one comprised of over an hour of completely insane entertainment cherry-picked from four decades of mind-bending creativity. It works out at only £7.69 per month or £0.25 per day!

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s how Lucky Club Member No.5 describes what he’s seen so far:

"For Sidebottom junkies like myself the death of Chris Sievey in 2010 left a hole in our cultural lives at a time when he was producing some of his most creative work. With the Lucky Club dropping in my inbox on a monthly basis that need has been sated through the joy of seeing for the first time (and in some cases reliving shows I never thought I'd see again) a myriad of material featuring  Frank, The Freshies and other unheralded projects of Chris' which Steve has sourced and restored with my eternal gratitude. "

So ask your friends and family to buy your membership to the I Should Be So Lucky Club as your big Christmas present. You’ll be helping the film become the best documentary it’s possible to make, and you won’t stop laughing. What other gift is going to bring you as much happiness?

The I Should Be So Lucky Club is limited to 100 members and won’t be on sale after Christmas 2014, so book one of the remaining places now to avoid disappointment. Thank you.






Throughout the 1970s, Chris Sievey worked tirelessly on his music career. Fuelled by the same imagination that gave us Frank Sidebottom, Chris’ early music was limited to cassette-only releases, often with pressings of only 25-100 copies. An independent artist, way before running an indie record label became the norm, Chris’ music is seldom heard and will be a big part of the documentary.
 
The Bees Knees


The Bees Knees - The Early Recordings 1975 - £8 digital download

Before The Freshies came The Bees Knees. Here’s how Chris himself described The Bees Knees back in 1975:“In late ‘73 I formed The Bees Knees and over the next twoyears attempted to get a working band together. It didn’t come off.”For only £8.00 you can receive a digital download of 18 early tracks by The Bees Knees, including such highlights as ‘Slump’ and ‘Hey Marg’ and a high quality scan of a Bees Knees fan club sticker.This is roughly recorded, and played, but it’s a great insight into Chris’ pre-Freshies creativity.
