47 years after they played Inverness Caledonian Football Park in Telford St ATOMIC ROOSTER are set to return to the Highlands when they feature at Bella. The 1970 event, Scotland’s first rock festival, was called ‘The First Scottish Blues and Progressive Music Festival’. 5,000 gathered on July 18th to watch Atomic Rooster play in an eight hour programme featuring Rory Gallagher’s Taste, Savoy Brown, Black Widow, String Driven Thing, If, Brinsley Schwarz and Hot Cottage. A review in the Inverness Courier read: “Inverness had quite an invasion on Saturday of young lovers of the type of music generally played ad nauseam on the BBC Radio 1 programme. They arrived in special buses from most of the Scottish cities … most of them with shoulder-length hair (irrespective of sex), some carrying their sleeping-bags for their overnight quarters on the Castle Hill, river bank, shop doorways, etc. and quite a large number wearing the kind of clothes affected by the “hippies,” drop-outs and off-beats seen in most cities nowadays.The young music-lovers, however, were generally quite well-behaved, and gave the police little trouble – although one Edinburgh youth appeared in the Sheriff Court and was sentenced to six months imprisonment, for possessing the drug cannabis, and some householders found their milk and morning rolls missing.”
