Magna Crunch circa 1971-72.
Our focus was on original material (thanks Frank Zappa), classic soul, blues & contemporary covers.
The picture in front of the Ye Olde Music sign shows us in outfits we wore a couple of times for sets when we played our original material. Red dyed shirts & matching long underwear with each guy wearing a different letter on their chest.
When we started our original set, we marched onto the stage & spelled out "Crunch".
Since we had a lot of original material we opened for Alice Cooper, Fanny (all girl band), 5 Man Electrical Band (one hit wonder "Signs, Signs"), Tucky Buzzard (Brittish hair band) from what I can remember.
