Artefact of the day

Added 26th November 2007

Publicity shot for the reformed Chameleons 2000, this is from Mark Burgess autobiography 'View from a Hill" which is an excellent history of Manchester in the pre-punk punk and punk years mentions loads of long forgotten clubs venues and groups.
Gamma and his familiars? The Gallery? UMIST? well worth seeking out.
