Location: The Antwerp Mansion, Manchester, England Words: Matthew Duffy Performance: Puppet Bob, Thick Richard Image: Ailie Rutherford
Late in 2007 Bob vowed never to perform live as part of Thick Richard again. So in 2010 when the opportunity was presented, Puppet Bob was created to take his place. Puppet Bob performed as one half of Thick Richard on a couple of occasions, including the Big Chill festival 2010 in Eastnor, England, as part of Doodlebug presents (cheers Barney!).
The horrible puppet also features in the video for Quatermass,
