The Who: Who Ready To Hit You With New Ideas

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 28 October 1967

AFTER six weeks with "the last Schmaltz" it is good to find the Who back in the charts with a new single, 'I Can See For Miles', in their old "knockabout" style. It is also good to have Pete Townshend back for interviews, employing his brain like a well-oiled lawn mower that clacks around and around, spitting out ideas and attitudes as it churns up the Scene.
