CHILLINGSWORTH SURFINGHAM – “CORONADO”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
Chillingsworth Surfingham is a stuffed bear and the alter ego of John Ashfield who has been band leader of the San Francisco indie pop staple The Bobbleheads since 2002. The eponymous first album is 14 “surfstrumental” songs with a side of TIki that convey 14 locations, anywhere but stuck at home. Energetic and melodic, the songs branch across all waves of surf rock, not just the 60’s heyday. Influences from Dick Dale to Shadowy Men on A Shadowy Planet to Daikaiju are shaken, not stirred into the Chillingsworth Surfingham concoction. As a one-time surfer, John, and Chillingsworth, know the surf and the scene.
“Guitars, friends, dogs, and groovy times are the ethos of the now. All this is that.”
