Are The Who's politics implicit in the songs?

Yup. That's why The Who are the *most* telling and cutting band of their 
stature. And that's precisely why, given that they've changed so much down 
the years, I still ove 'em, and find them utterly relevant.

As Peter Meaden said, Mod was a recipe "for clean living in difficult 
circumstances". I believe (woooh, yes, my brothers and sisters, I really do 
believe) that The Who (and Pete's solo work too) provide both a soundtrack 
and a recipe for tough thinking under difficult circumstances.
