This has been in development for the best part of a decade: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wHcHaPkYnw

Hope it gets a wide release. I could quite cheerfully watch however many thousands of hours of unused material they must have amassed in the interim too.

Glad it's being released "on digital" apparently at the same time as the theatre releases. I really want to be able to pay to see this.

Paid up for the Kickstarter for this, and it’s been in the works so long I don’t mind it getting released to cinemas and festivals before I get my copy. Just glad it’s finally coming out. I remember the updates mentioning the first cut being something like ten hours... and having to cut lots out to make it shorter must have been hard. But I would still want to see the 8.5hrs they assembled and then cut out.

I went to a Frank Sidebottom tribute gig almost a decade ago and they were looking for talking heads for this, and even wanted me to film a bit even though my only memory was of watching him as a kid and finding it funny. Obviously a lot more work has gone in to it since and I can't wait to see it, and hopefully a dvd release will contain a lot more footage.

It's showing in Wigan? Fuck!

I'd love to see this on a big screen. And by big I mean reasonably sized.

Amazing, can't wait.

I ordered a bunch of merch to support the film and to freak out the Yankz, and Steve Sullivan sent me a nice note via email on shipping. Nice personal touch
