The Dawn Chorus / The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Blogging all over the World

My name is Kyle. I am a happily failing indie/punk/folk/country/rock musician from Hampshire, UK. I have been singing and songwriting in The Dawn Chorus since 2005, and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players since 2010. I love these two bands like my brother/wife rolled into one. This blog details the shows I have played with both bands, in chronological order.

XXVIII - Winchester Railway Inn - 21/06/06

Wednesday 16th June
Winchester Railway Inn

The Dawn Chorus
Fly Monkeys Fly
Rob Ball

After the debacle of the last gig we all decided that just playing the actual gig would be a bonus, and that much was achieved. The whole night was really good fun, it was nice to get back to the place where we played our first ever gig, only this time we weren't hidden behind a barrier so the surging crowds had to look after themselves. Due to the football and also constant changes to the night's line-up the place wasn't rammed, but we've certainly played to smaller audiences. Rob of the Winchester Massive did an impromptu acoustic set which was very beautiful and unexpected, FMF were big dumb garage rock fun and also covered Del Shannon(?)'s 'Runaway', the one that goes 'a-wa-wa-wa-wa-wondeeered'. Bodyhost sounded enormous but weren't quite as good as when we played the Guildhall Tavern recently, although we were a little below par too so can't complain. I snapped a string on the second song, so i spent the whole set trying in vain to keep my guitar in tune. Also my harmonica holder wouldn't tighten so that was unusable. But all in all a decent night x
