Casbah Club is a mod rock band formed in 2004, which consisted of guitarist/vocalist Simon Townshend (brother of Pete Townshend and touring member of The Who), bassist Bruce Foxton (The Jam, Stiff Little Fingers), drummer Mark Brzezicki (Procol Harum, Big Country), and rhythm guitarist Bruce Watson (Big Country). Scottish singer JJ Gilmour sang with the band in its earliest incarnation; a live album entitled Eastworld from this period was released.
Casbah Club's debut album, Venustraphobia, was released in June 2006. During that year they toured with The Who, wherein Simon Townshend played a support set as a member of Casbah Club before playing the headlining set as a member of The Who.
As of September 2008, Casbah Club has been on hiatus as Townshend continues to tour with The Who and Bruce Foxton tours with From The Jam. Bruce Watson and Mark Brzezizki currently record and tour with the reformed Big Country.
