We’re going deep in to vaults of Mod culture with a one-off screening of seminal mod-drama Quadrophenia followed by a Mod themed disco, with DJs spinning the very best of The Who, The Kinks, The Yardbirds, Small Faces, Secret Affair and much, much more until early hours.
Rumour has it we’ll have some Mod drinks specials on the go, including a “Vespa” Martini at just £10 for two!
Quadrophenia is the 1979 British drama film, loosely based on the 1973 rock opera of the same name by The Who. It was directed by Franc Roddam in his feature directing début.
The film stars Phil Daniels as Jimmy, a young 1960s London-based Mod who escapes from his dead-end job as a mailroom boy by dancing, partying, taking amphetamines, riding his scooter, and brawling with the motorcycle-riding Rockers. After he and his friends participate in a huge brawl with the Rockers at the seaside town of Brighton, he is arrested and his life starts to spiral out of control; he loses his girlfriend (Leslie Ash) and discovers that his idol, the popular mod nicknamed “Ace Face” (Sting) is actually a bell boy at a hotel.
