With Beatlemania a fading memory, a new generations of girls and young women had their own pop idols to scream at and swoon over.

Riding high on the back of such global hits as Crazy Horses (an early plea about the dangers of pollution), and Little Jimmy's truly abominable Long-Haired Lover from Liverpool, the Mormon brothers were the hottest pop ticket in town - even if that ticket cost just £1.50!

Even the venue's notoriously heavy-handed bouncers, more used to dealing with rough and ready rock fans, were bewildered when faced with crying and screaming girls.
