Bay City Rollers

Bay City Rollers - was a popular British pop band of the 1970s and early 1980. The group had five members, and came from Scotland. Their Scottish identity was a major factor in their marketing, and they were one of few groups whose fans had a completely distinctive style of dress, the main elements of which were mid-calf-length tartan[?] trousers and tartan scarves.

They had several hits that made to the Top 3 of the British charts, and for a period had their own television series, entitled Shang a Lang (the title of one of their hits). However, they were never popular with music critics and their popularity quickly waned.

Other hits include:
