Casbah Club (25/06/2006)
One of the support bands when I saw The Who at the o2 Wireless Festival in Leeds, Casbah Club were fronted by Pete Townsend’s brother and had The Jam legend Bruce Foxton on bass with members of Big Country and Procal Harum making up the rest of the band. Playing generic mod music with little to no imagination is was a rather bland set. My abiding memory was thatat least one song used the same bass line from the Jam song Start (itself nicked from the guitar riff off the Beatles ‘Taxman’) which I found a bit cringeworthy. I was glad to finally be able to say I’ve seen Foxton, a big hero of mine, but I wish I could’ve seen him in a better band!
