Britain's top 70s tennybopper band first charted in 1971 with 'Keep On Dancing', which Pop entrepreneur Jonathan King sang on and were named after a town in Utah or Michigan (depending on whose version you believe), USA. By 1974, the tartan-clad combo scored nine UK Top 10 hits including the No. 1s 'Bye Bye Baby' and 'Give A Little Love'.

Once their carer peaked in Europe, it took off in the USA: their six Top 40 hits included the chart-topping 'Saturday Night'. Althought they were successful, 'Rollermania' subsided and the 'biggest British band since The Beatles" was relegated to the nostalgia circuit.
