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.
