Manchester University Starts Online Archive for Musical Performances

Manchester University has started an online archive for musical performances at the school. “Items range from a 1964 newspaper article about formal dress rules being relaxed at the November ball – headlined by Lonnie Donegan – to video footage of McFly playing at the Academy earlier this year. Along the way the ticket stubs and flyers tells an illuminating history of British music. One ticket from 1993 promises Lancashire band The Milltown Brothers, supported by The Real People, and a band from Burnage… called Oasis.”
