IT’S been over 50 years since The Who first made their way into the world’s soundsystems and they still ardently refuse to vacate, inspiring countless of new artists to grit their teeth and head in whatever weird or wonderful direction they can imagine.
Recorded when the band were at the height of their pre-rock opera phase and among Britain’s foremost pop groups infiltrating the hearts and minds of America, they’ve shared an unreleased track entitled ‘The Girls I Could’ve Had.’
Set to be featured on the band’s upcoming expanded re-release of 1965’s My Generation, ‘The Girls I Could’ve Had’ is a fast-paced ditty from Townshend and his classic guitar tone which harks back to the surf pop music so adored by their late drummer Keith Moon in terms of wistful subject matter but contains much more bluesy undertones.
The band’s new deluxe version of the album will contain both stereo and mono mixes alongside a whole host of never-before-heard material and will be released on the 18th November.
