The Spread played at The White Lion, Heeley on the 28th of March 1969. It cost 4/- to get in. Never heard of them.
I bought a book from Oxfam and there's a fragment of The Star in it which includes an ad for the gig.

I hung around with the first 'they must be russians',doing a bit of poetry over their music.apparently there has been an ever revolving change of band members since until it expired.
