Selket, one half of 1960s psychedelic band Rameses & Selket, returned to Sheffield for the first time in over 40 years. The band lived and worked here during the peak of their career.

The Quasar One bear designed by Tom J Newell is named after their song Quasar One and sponsored by West One Student Accommodation.

Famously the band’s record company misheard and released the song as Crazy One.
