Phil Hendriks was (and still is) the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter in Powerpop-punk band The Stiffs, who recorded for EMI and Stiff Records at the beginning of the 1980s with some moderate 'indie' success. Over recent years Phil's name has become familiar to many music collectors, after writing liner notes for over a hundred CD reissue albums of music by 1970s artists. He has also recorded with the likes of Graham Oliver (Saxon), Overend Watts (Mott The Hoople) and Alan Merrill (Arrows). For the last couple of years, he has toured as guitarist with the reformed '70s UKand U.S. chart-toppers - 'Paper Lace'. Phil served his 'Roller apprenticeship' playing guitar in original BCR guitarist Eric Faulkner's band between 2008 and Summer 2011.

Keyboardist Alex Southgate first played with Les McKeown Legendary Bay City Rollers way back in 2009. Three years of UK, American and Canadian tours later, he was a certified, authoritative ‘Roller’! Alex took a hiatus to fulfil his dream of becoming a solo accordionist. Something that was to become a reality in the subsequent years. He now performs a number of times each month with his unique act.
Eventually, of course, the lure of the highlands and bagpipes beaconed him back, Alex could no longer resist the Shang-A-Lang and officially returned into the Bay City Rollers fold from 2018, appearing at shows in Japan, UK, and Slovakia. With over 25 dates booked for the end of 2019 alone - the future is looking decidedly ‘Tartan!
