NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #54 ~ 01-24-15]


In summer 1965, Townshend had bought a 1935 Packard V12 Hearse. One day he returned home to find the car missing from outside his flat. The police informed him that it had been towed away on the orders of the Queen Mother, who’d complained after seeing it on her regular journey from Clarence House to Buckingham Palace. She’d taken umbrage, as it reminded her of her late husband, George VI’s funeral car. The incident fuelled Townshend’s ire at the Royal Family and the British class system in general. ‘I was outraged,’ he said. ‘This was the world we were living in.’

‘I’m not pretending we were the Arnold Weskers or John Osbornes of our age,’ he insisted. ‘But certainly what we did followed on from what was happening with the angry young men in the theatre.’ ‘My Generation’s’ grand statement was, he said: ‘All right you motherfuckers, I am going to have you. I am going to be bigger and richer, and I’m going to move into your neighbourhood.’

– Mark Blake, Pretend You’re In A War: The Who & The Sixties
