Quadrophenia is a 1979 British film, loosely based around the 1973 rock opera of the same name by The Who. Its a story about London Mod Jimmy Cooper, played by Phil Daniels (picture) - Mod is a subculture that originated in London, England, in the late 1950s and peaked in the early-to-mid 1960s. elements of the mod subculture include fashion (often tailor-made suits); music, including African American soul, Jamaican ska, British beat music, and R&B; and motor scooters. The 1990s Britpop scene featured noticeable mod influences on bands such as Oasis, Blur, Ocean Colour Scene and The Verve.
I've enjoyed this movie but its a while back. I am posting a movie card today cos I am playing with the thought of blogging about the flicks, inspired with a few excellent ones I've watched recently. Perhaps :)
