The Society of Cool!
Sorry to be annoying Joe, but I already mentioned this topic last week -
It's about the making of the Who's album, Quadrophenia.
It was mentioned well before then
watched the documentry on friday night really enjoyed it .even though seen quad many times it was still great to see again
Watched this on BBC i-player (poor picture quality). Realised that I dont know much about the album (but have seen the film a few times!). Interesting interviews, especially 'Irish Jack'.
Really enjoyed it, well made. Cool to see PT, Irish Jack & Richard Barnes chatting over a coffee.
watched it ,not bad ,if townshend was chocolate he would eat himself ,,, where s the book pete ???? show us the book
pete townshend is still in love with mod
he gets all over complicated in describing its heritage and cultural impact
but be honest how many of us would be here today if he didnt ?
that was a brave album to put out in 73 about a youth cult that had withered and near enough died roughly 6 years before .
there wasnt the huge market for nostalgia or "retro " back then
and even if there was most people would have looked further back than 64
quadrophenia re ignited mod and the flame has burned constantly since
so thanks for that pete
