Groundhogs were a good band - Tony McPhee once played a set with Rory Gallagher. Never got to see the Beach Boys, but they were talented musicians.
There was a good scene in Wigan but I must admit I saw most bands at Manchester Free Trade Hall. At one point I was there nearly every week watching the lesser famous bands such as Home, Jo'burg Hawk, Capability Brown, etc. I saw Nazareth there at the height of their fame.
I don't know how many remember Queen supporting Mott The Hoople on tour - saw them at Preston Guild Hall.
The FAG at Newtown British Legion had a few good bands, Caravan, Budgie, etc.
