Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Chesterf!elds are an English indie pop band from Yeovil.

The band was formed in summer 1984 by Dave Goldsworthy (vocals, guitar), Simon Barber (bass, vocals), and Dominic Manns (drums), joined in 1985 by Brendan Holden (guitar). They signed to The Subway Organization, releasing three well-received singles, before Holden was replaced by Rodney Allen. Debut LP Kettle was released in July 1987, with a compilation of the early singles, Westward Ho! issued later the same year. Allen left to join The Blue Aeroplanes, to be replaced temporarily by Andy Strickland of The Caretaker Race, before a more permanent replacement was found in the form of Simon Barber's brother Mark.

The band then moved to their own Household label, issuing two more singles and a third album, Crocodile Tears. The band effectively split in late 1988, with Goldsworthy and Manns departing, but the Barbers continued as The Chesterf!elds for a final single, Fool Is A Man, in 1989.

The band split for good in the summer of 1989, Simon Barber forming Basinger, and Mark Barber joining Grape.

The band's continuing fanbase saw much of their back catalogue re-issued by Vinyl Japan in the 1990s. The band then reformed and recorded a final album in 1994 entitled Flood before splitting once again.

On the 9th of November 2004, Dave Goldsworthy was tragically killed when he was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver in Oxford, UK.

In 2016, for a show at NYC Popfest, The Chesterf!elds reformed once again, now featuring new members Rob Parry and Helen Strickland alongside Simon Barber and Andy Strickland from the old days. They continue to play live.
