CHOCOLATE WATCH BAND

Seminal garage band the Chocolate Watchband formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1965, making their name locally with a distinctive blend of Anglicised R&B and pure punk raunch. Produced by Ed Cobb, the groups vintage recordings combined this influence with a prominent psychedelic edge across a handful of spectacular singles and three cherished albums. With eye-opening appearances in movies like 1967’s Riot On Sunset Strip, the last of several Watchband line-ups ground to a halt in 1970, but the legend was firmly established and would only grow exponentially with new fans over the coming decades, via the bands inclusion on such influential reissues as Nuggets. In 1999, the Watchband reunited at the San Diego event 66/99, and in the years since have subsequently performed at major festivals throughout the US and Europe to frequent acclaim, bringing the fire of old to their vintage material. The current line-up features original members Aguilar, Andrijasevich and Abbott, alongside CWB archivist Palao, and as a major bonus, Daryl Hooper, keyboard player and founder member of another legendary garage rock combo, The Seeds. And part of the new Chocolate Watchband show will be devoted to songs made famous by the Seeds.
