Morris’ images capture the visceral hysteria of the fans and unforgettable fashions of the time at Spike Island and Glasgow Green, both pivotal moments in the band’s history. Both concerts made epic impacts on future movements by crafting mass gatherings of youths and the return of a 1960s hallucinogenic type of crowd. Spike Island, although considered to be a failure at the time due to sound quality, is now perceived as ‘Woodstock for a baggy generation’.
