Alan Fletcher channelled his obsession with 60s
mods into a screenplay based on his own life which found its way to Pete
Townshend’s door and led to his involvement with the film, and to his writing Quadrophenia—the novel. The script
formed the basis of Brummell’s Last Riff,
the first novel in his Mod Crop Trilogy.
He has contributed to symposiums on youth culture at Derby, Nottingham and
Keele.
