My guess is that is The Move from around 1966.

2nd from the left, gotta' be Manfred Man - with the Manfreds. Or were they called 'the earth band' And the MM number plate too.
Not my music of the era. More of a Creedence Clearwater man and a band that never(?) made it in the UK. Paul Revere and the Raiders. Big in Vung-Tau

Don't think it's Manfred Mann, two of them wore specs

I thought it might be Hermans Hermits, but again one of them always wore spec.

Music of the 60s …. my favourite subject.
You might think it sad that I know this but the band were the short-lived Ministry of Sound.
L to R: Steve Priest (later of the Sweet), Dave Wintour (later of the Pretty Things and the Wurzels!), Robin Shaw (later of the Flower Pot Men and White Plains), Micky Keen (Flower Pot Men and Hudson Ford) and Eddie Richards (Edison Lighthouse).

Here’s a Mini related pic for Manfred Fans:

The Manfred's bass player at the back, Klaus Voorman, designed this for The Beatles in '66...
