Quadrophenia people, you can listen to the Sussex Conference that took place on 11 July 2014 on Youtube. Unfortunately audience questions were not audible, so we had to cut them, and we still have a few sessions to sort out, but here are four sessions for your listening pleasure.

Thanks to everyone including Franc Roddam, James Wood, Paolo Hewitt, Alan Fletcher, Simon Wells and a host of fantastic paper givers for a a great day. Like Irish Jack, I am a loss for words say how great the conference was, so I’ll let the Who do it for me.
The article is here. Sadly they did not use the original title “Ready to rumble, theoretically”.
Franc Roddam will speak after the showing of Quadrophenia at the Duke of York Cinema, tonight (Thursday 10th July) at 6:00 with the participation of Simon Wells (author of Quadrophenia: A Way of Life) and Alan Fletcher.
