Sea and Sand

Pete Townshend: "Arriving at Brighton, Jimmy brightens up a bit…get the pun? He talks about rows at home and is a little sarcastic as he recalls the evening on the beach with his former girlfriend. This is 1965 and the Mod scene is already falling apart – and what does he do but go to Brighton just to remember. The crazy days when 300,000 Mod kids from London descended on that little beach town were only three weeks ago, but he’s already living in the past."

The ending quotes from The High Numbers’ single "I’m The Face." Pete’s demo version was released on his Scoop 3 album.
