"Frankdaze Mix is a compilation of tracks from Frank Sidebottom & The Oh Blimey Big Band, The Freshies, John Cooper Clarke, The Fall, Marc Riley and The Creepers, The Bonzo Dog Band, Laibach, Badly Drawn Boy and The Bee Gees.

Predominantly punk era artists from Manchester (Frank Sidebottom & The Oh Blimey Big Band, The Freshies, John Cooper Clarke, The Fall, Marc Riley and The Creepers) or artists who have lived in Manchester, specifically Chorlton (Badly Drawn Boy, The Bee Gees), that retrospectively have been influenced by and influenced Chris Sievey.

The remaining artists’ tracks (from The Bonzo Dog Band & Laibach) are included because of their profound influence on Chris Sievey and also because they were the soundtrack to the days when both Chris and Frank lived with me for a spell some twenty odd years ago, following the collapse of our marriages."
