Brighton - Mods And Rockers

As I saw Quadrophenia for the first time several years ago, I didn´t really understand what it was about.
Then I started with my plan to make a journey to Brighton. A dear friend sent me this article and I did some researches.
The "Battle of Brighton" took place in the early sixties as two subcultures, the Mods and the Rockers met in Brighton, read about it here and here.

I found the movie Quadrophenia again. The music is made by The Who in 1973, the movie was made in 1979. I´m going to put the movie on here, because it´s interesting for me to learn about how the kids of the working class struggled with their identity in the 60ies.
Unfortunately the movie has some brakes in between, round about every 10 minutes, but one can move the curser further on and watch the film completely. I don´t know if I should say "enjoy it" - I found some of the scenes disturbing.

Never thought I would do that, but ok, here is the complete soundtrack from Quadrophenia from the year 2000 :)
