Here is Tain's first rock band - The Rough Diamonds - pictured around 1964. The photo was taken in The Grove beside the old Post Office. From left to right we have David Ross, David Bremner, Robert Mackay and Alex Graham.
The boys were a little short of sound equipment when the photo was taken, but by 1966 they were playing regularly in Tain Town Hall and around the north. They broke up in September 1968 when the two Davids left for further education in Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Robert and Alex went on to form The Midas Touch with Stewart Macpherson.
