Casbah Club is a mod rock band formed in 2004, consisting 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).

Watson left the band to concentrate on his work with Four Good Men prior to re-forming Big Country with Brzezicki and Tony Butler for a 25th anniversary tour, in 2007.

Casbah Club's debut album "Venustraphobia" was released in June, 2006. That year also, 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 is on hiatus as Simon continues to tour with The Who and Bruce Foxton tours with From The Jam.
