The Who's Pomp and Bombast, Egos and Flaws - PopMatters

The Who's Pomp and Bombast, Egos and Flaws - PopMatters | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

The Who Sell Out ranks in my top three favorite albums. I took my first girlfriend to the film adaptation of Quadrophenia when it opened in Hollywood in 1979. I return to their music, especially their 1967-1978 period, for a boost not matched by what I find in the overplayed output of the Beatles or Stones.

His Own Godfather - New York Times

His Own Godfather - New York Times | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

It’s just the kind of movie clip YouTube was made for. In the 1965 Frankie Avalon vehicle, “Ski Party,” James Brown and his backing vocal group, the Famous Flames, enter a ski lodge after rescuing a frozen reveler.
