Quadrophenia “Can You See The Real Me?” Documentary Digital Release (U.S. only)




Available now! (U.S. only) –  the digital release of Quadrophenia “Can You See The Real Me?” documentary.


In his home studio and revisiting old haunts in Shepherds Bush and Battersea, Pete Townshend opens his heart and his personal archive to revisit ‘the last great album the Who ever made’, one that took the Who full circle back to their earliest days via the adventures of a pill-popping mod on an epic journey of self-discovery.

But in 1973 Quadrophenia was an album that almost never was. Beset by money problems, a studio in construction, heroin-taking managers, a lunatic drummer and a culture of heavy drinking, Townshend took on an album that nearly broke him and one that within a year the band had turned their back on and would ignore for nearly three decades.
With unseen archive and in-depth interviews from Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, John Entwistle and those in the studio and behind the lens who made the album and thirty page photo booklet. Contributors include: Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Ethan Russell, Ron Nevison, Richard Barnes, Irish Jack Lyons, Bill Curbishley, John Woolf, Howie Edelson, Mark Kermode and Georgiana Steele Waller.

    I’ve just watched this documentary, I’m so glad you made it. Its really meaningful, honest, interesting, funny, incredibly sad, insightful. I don’t think I realised quite the cost of making it.
    Fantastic. Thanks.
