The Circles

Some clever bloke has taken one of my favorite mod revival songs, "Billy" by The Circles, and created a video for it using only clips from Quadrophenia. Nice fan video, especially when you think of all the crap fan videos that are out there.

The Circles
were one of those revival bands that falls into the also-ran category now because they didn't have label distribution and support -- at least not like those bands you are most familiar with, and with which they definitely should be lumped -- Secret Affair, The Chords, Lambrettas and so on. No matter, The Circles had a very Jam-like straight forward power pop sound, infused with the punk angst of the day, but still more focused on sixties R&B.
