CLASSIC BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND SCOOTER RUN WILL HEAD FOR BRIGHTON TO WATCH SPECIAL QUADROPHENIA POP-UP CINEMA SCREENING      QUADROPHENIA: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT BOXSET WILL BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 14th     www.whereisthenomad.com  |  www.thewho.com      Central London’s only dedicated scooter club, The Bar Italia Scooter club will be reenacting the mod heydays of the ‘60s over the August Bank Holiday weekend when the official London to Brighton Quadrophenia 2011 scooter run leaves their HQ in central London on Saturday. Over 50 guys and girls and their classic scooters will head down the A23 together to celebrate the forthcoming reissue of the classic Who album Quadrophenia – The Director’s Cut. When asked why they wanted to stage this organiser Nicky Bubbles replied ‘Quadrophenia is an iconic album that has resonates with every mod and scooter owner, it’s a real pleasure to be associated with the reissue’.     The run will be heading South to watch the one-off screening of the classic film Quadrophenia at Brighton Racecourse on Sunday 28th August organised by the The Nomad Cinema.  This brilliant slice of British history follows the story of a disillusioned London Mod who, in searching for an outlet for his teenage angst, ends up in a bitter feud with rivals, the Rockers. Things come to a head, as they both descend upon the seaside town of Brighton where a series of running battles and violent rioting ensues. Sound a little too familiar in these current times of turmoil? A different era, and a different battle, but a relevant view of youth angst nonetheless.     Perched on a hill overlooking the sea and the legendary Lanes below, Brighton Racecourse will be the setting for this unforgettable cinematic experience. We invite you to bring a picnic, though hot food and a full bar will be available on site. There’s ample parking for your scooter (or car) though we advise you bring a cushion or something comfy to sit on. Capacity is strictly limited so book now to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £10 each from via www.whereisthenomad.com and the first 500 people get an exclusive Quadrophenia badge.     The Who's album, Quadrophenia – The Director’s Cut, is scheduled for release via Universal Music Catalogue November 14th 2011. The box set gives a unique insight into the creation of this landmark album and will feature a re-master of the original double album, Pete Townshend’s previously unheard demos including songs that didn’t make it onto the original album, an exclusive eight track 5.1 sound DVD, a deluxe hard-back book, previously unseen personal notes, photographs, memorabilia and other exclusive material that will be announced very soon.
