Tartan Teen Sensation - memories of a lame band

Tartan Teen Sensation - memories of a lame band

Each month I buy up a few bundles of vintage doll clothes and it's always a treasure hunt treat to unpack and go through them. This week's fun find was this tartan set by Faerie Glen.

It really reminds me of the Bay City Rollers, who were a popular British boy band in the 1970s. I have to admit I really didn't like them at the time and nothing has changed there! Watching them on video, they were such little puppy dogs! They rocked the tartan look though.

One of the earliest boy bands I guess, if you go with the definition of boy band as 'a pop group composed of young men whose music and image are designed to appeal primarily to a young teenage audience'.

I have to confess that I loved ABBA though. I went through a phase of carrying around a battery operated portable cassette tape player 'blasting' out ABBA one Summer. I think it was mono and about 12 inches long with a handle at one end and big push buttons to record and play.

What was your favourite teen band?
