Autumn vibes at the Union. Freddie and the Dreamers are described somewhat improbably as 'Manchester's craziest group'. I doubt they were as crazy as Arthur Brown, whose strapline, 'the most sensational group ever' betrays some of Brown's infamous humour. This was a while before 'Fire!' conquered the world in June '68.

Taken from the Manchester Independent Newspaper, written and edited by University of Manchester students. With thanks to James Peters at the University of Manchester Archives and Ben Ward at The University of Manchester Students' Union.
