Here’s something to keep all you disenfranchised Mods and Rockers from looming Bank Holiday boredom over the coming weekend.

50 members of The Bar Italia Scooter Club are set to recreate scenes from 1979 film ‘Quadrophenia’ with a commemorative run from London to Brighton, thus heralding the reissue of The Who’s album of the same name. ‘Quadrophenia – The Director’s Cut’ is due out via Universal Music Catalogue on 14 Nov.

Setting off from the Club’s central HQ this coming Saturday, the fleet of scooters will brave the A23 to Brighton, where the ride will culminate with a screening of the ‘Quadrophenia’ movie at the Brighton Racecourse on Sunday 28.

Tickets to the screening, priced at £10 each, can be purchased here. Perhaps Sting will turn up in a PVC trench-coat, you never know.
