Hi, Me again.
I forgot to tell you, I have a video blog that I just set up yesterday. This is a place where I put in videos that I think are cool. I would like to place some of yours in there too.
You can check it out if you like. I only have a couple in there right now, but more is to come.

You're not a bad dancer at all, really. Those hips were doing some serious swivelling.

Funny video. I was hoping to see some diving, or at least some twisting by the pool.

Hahahaha! It's brilliant. Can't get more cheerful than that. Actually it reminded me of my nephew who is 1 and a half years old :-)

Btw, just discovered that the Cashbah Club gig from the Who convention has been made available as pay-per-download DVD on longliverock. Really great! Serves as a fantastic introduction to what to expect of your support slot at Bristol and Hyde Park!

Hey Simon! Just watche d the PPV at Leeds! So excited I am!!! Must be a great feeling to have people screaming for joy as you walk out and not even play a note yet! Can't wait till you are in the US so I can scream for joy at you in person instead of at my computer.

1:04 PM

Hi Si,

Great show on Saturday and good to see you afterwards - pity there was no room for CC but I think you'd habve beenwell knackered if you had done another set.

Mr McNabb is really up for doing something with you on ITA - give me a shout it would be great

See youin Southampton

Blogger Steve H said...


Missed Casbah Club completely due to that bloody traffic - 6 hours from London!!!!!!!!!!! I was sitting in the car feeling absolutely gutted.

Anyhow, arrived at the venue at 8:15 and went straight through the VIP (thanks to the passes Rachel sent me) - up to the 3rd floor in the lift Simon just as you were exiting a room marked wardrobe I think - I was just behind you and gonna say hi but you disappeared before I had the chance - damn!!! Anyway, had a great evening and roll on Hyde park then Beaulieu!!!!!!!!!

Just heard on ITA, Bruce Watson left the band.. Pity, I guess it was finances?

You'll get another player.. They're out there.

My copy of your album arrived and it's bloody brilliant!!!!!!!

Well done you guys!!!!!!!!

I am enjoying you on ITA so much! Great shows...
I will be in Hyde Park with my golden wristband at hand tomorrow, so I hope I can catch you at some point. I am so excited!

please go on my blog to arrange pre-gig drinks!

We would be more than happy, ecstatic I should say if you could join us on Monday 10th of July at Earl's Court's greek restaurant As Greek As It Gets, for greek souvlakia dinner! That is if you are in the country.
A lot of bloggers who adore you will be there. An invitation has been also sent to Rachel, Bex and Mikey and Rene. And of course bring la famille along!!!!

Let's hope we can all make it! The food is delicieux and the atmosphere and service fantastic. Let's all get drunk with greek retsina, lol.

So if you (or anyone else) would like to join, email me, and I will book a table, or, as it seems, the whole restaurant, LOL. My email is on my profile.

Hi Simon,

Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic set Hyde Park which I was lucky to catch (cosily in the shadow of the 2nd stage tent). Rumours of Casbah Club's fantastic live fitness are definitely not exaggerated.


9:53 AM  
Blogger BallerinaGurl said...

Hi Si! Casbah Club was AMAZING today on the webcast. I am watching a re-run of it now as I get ready to go out. Thanks for the treat of being there with you enjoying the good tunes!

Hope you are enjoying the tour!


12:36 PM

WOW!! I thought the Casbah Club were great today. Excellent performance. Thanks to those that made it happen!!

I am looking forward to more of the same.

Good luck with the rest of the tour.


1:20 PM  
Blogger Alecia said...

Hi Si,

It was great to see CC at Hyde Park... really cool that the tent filled up to maximum capacity! The three of you sounded REALLY great!! I was wondering why you guys weren't on the main stage as you were 10 times better than what I saw up there on my way in.

What a treat for the broadcast today!
Best to yer.

Hi Simon, just before you played Sex Change at Beaulieu some gobby so and so shouted out 'Go on Si'. You looked across to see who it was. It was me! You and the guys really rock. Saw you at Southend and you get better each time. Hope to catch you again soon. Mark

Have to say, saw Casbah at Hyde oark (stripy shirt, front row) and Beaulieu (checked shirt second row)!! You were just so brillian and I truly haven't stopped playing the album since it arrived. Please please, when the tour with the Who is finished just play loads of UK gigs so I can come and see more.

Have a look on my blog - got loads of great pics of you and Bruce.

See you round

Hi Simon it's Paul Haggarty(from Glasgow)here,I'd like to start by saying a HUGE thankyou for putting me and my girlfreind on the guestlist for the T in the park show it was fantastic.We were backstage several times hoping to see you and thank you in person but although we spoke to just about everyone else you were not about whenever we were.I really enjoyed speaking with you at the aftershow at Bristol you're a genuinely nice guy,enjoy the rest of the tour and take care.Paul.p.s Simon I'm an experienced guitarist and could easily replace Bruce,seriously if you're looking give me a chance you'll not be disapointed.

You know, "Anyway She Moves" sounds a bit like "Start!" by The Jam...

Oh YEAH... I knew that I knew the bass line from somewhere. Nicely done high number!

Let's not forget that Start! sounded alot like Taxman :)

4:07 AM  
Blogger taipeianju said...

Simon explained a long time back on ITA that Start! was an homage to Taxman...and CC do "sample" Start! as well as Big Country's "In a Big Country" since Mark B was in BC and Bruce of course was in The Jam.

Thank you, Dr. Stupid!
Hee hee that's what my husband and I always say to anyone who lectures us. (Including ourselves).
Long live Ren and Stimpy.

Oh hi Simon!
Are you OK? I didn't quite catch what happened to you in tell us! You were standing in water? Sounds a little hazardous.

Just now I pull up to the drive-in window at Starbucks and ask for my usual Iced Green Tea Latte and the very good looking young man at the window asks me with a sweet smile, what are you listening to?

(It happened to be raised from simontownshendis)

I say enthusiasticaly, Yea! That's Simon Townshend, I reach for my Casbah Club Vensustraphobia CD and show him the front and back as I tell him this is the new band he's with and give the the history of each member.

He keeps smiling, cute as a bug in a rug... although looking like he has no idea who Big Country and The Jam were. He still looks thrilled so I continue to reach for simontownshendis and say this one was from a few years back, its got 18 tracks and can be purchased on Simon's site. He gestures to borrow it for a moment and writes down the title.

Who knows, this one very cool boy may be one start into a whole new exposure of the Amercian market!

This is just one story! Bet there are quite a few more stories a buzzin. Hope you guys all make it to the states! We're gonna love ya here.

Nice one Alecia!

Actually, Simon, I'm trying to convince my man to play the EP at work... (He's at HMV.) He says that's not fair cause people can't buy it from them and it'd just cause him a lot of agro. (He does the special ordering.)

Sooo... Please post as SOON as you choose a label to release it on! Not only will I have him order a zillion copies for his store, I'll have him play it 24/7. :D

Simon I don't know if are checking your blog or not but I wanted you to know that I got my copy of Venustraphobia. When I got it I didn't open it right away, lots of shit going on. Anyway, when I get a new CD I like to saturate myself in it so I have been listening to it in my car, trust me I drive ALOT! I love it so much. My two youngest daughters make me play Anyway She Moves over and over again (good thing I like it) and they do their own seated version of the "crap dance" in the backseat. I try to watch them in the rear view mirror and drive at the same time!! Yikes! Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much I love the CD and I can't wait to see the Casbah Club in the fall!!!
