Bay City Rollers: Flattened

Jonh Ingham, Creem, November 1975

THE ROLLERS SNEAKED up on everybody. The astute observer would have first noticed their presence two and a half years ago when their initial success was coming via intermittent hits. Since British radio is generally awful, most "serious" rock fans barely listen to it; the only way most people hear hits is on TV's Top Of The Pops.
