Look, I'm a bit ambivalent about Gary Glitter. Before he was found to be a sociopath (broadly speaking) I was a huge fan. So, yes, it's tainted things for me but it was still awesome bubblegum, especially with the double drummers, copied by Adam Ant.

As for the Bay City Rollers, they just about started the rot along with Bananarama's crucifixion of Venus, a great old bluesy number by Shocking Blue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LhkyyCvUHk.
