"The cruel irony is that this time around, many ex-revival Mod parents are secretly hoping their off-spring will embrace at least something of the essential non-compliance that underpins the youth subculture. Would I be disappointed if my children did some of the things I did as a Mod in my youth? Probably. Would I be equally disappointed if they didnít? Also probably.
Iíd just like to be able to choose which ones."

Very true.

A lost (beach  ;D) battle with my teenage son, who's been abducted by the dark forces of tracksuits, trap and Instagram. Still I hope he at least digs "Quadrophenia".
