Sting plays a cameo as Ace Face, the poster boy mod in Franc Roddam’s Quadrophenia. I first heard of the film like 13 years ago in some random issue of Q or something which probably mentioned The Who. Never caught it till now.

I’ll be honest, put me hands up and say I know scant little about mods. I know bits about the fashion and the image but not the whys and the hows. I do like me an anorak though. And I secretly still hanker for a Fred Perry polo.

How boss is that eh? Ace Face. Just so you know, he’s really a bellboy.
