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.

XXXVIII - Winchester Railway Inn - 15/10/06

Sunday 15th October 2006
Winchester Railway Inn

Sine Star Project
James Bright ?
The Vice
The Dawn Chorus

Without meaning to sound ungrateful, this was the definition of an average gig. When we began our first song we were playing to one person – the promoter, Rob – but by the end of the first song there were 20 or so people in, which is pretty good for first on at the Railway. Like I say, it was average, we didn’t play particularly well or badly, we just played. I lost my voice for the second time in recent weeks though, which is quite bothering. I must remember to limber up more thoroughly in future.

The Vice had possibly the most intense singer I’ve ever seen, he was about 6 foot 6 and screwed his eyes and fists up during every song. I think he actually pushed his fingernails through his hands at one point. I showed off my natural smoothness, sitting right near the front of the stage and dropping a pint glass on the floor right in the quiet middle section of their most epic song. Smooth indeed. Although I was glad that the barman gave me the dustpan and brush to clean up the mess myself, I don’t like places where they insist on cleaning it up for you. I subscribe fully to the idea that the fool who drops the pint glass deserves the shame of cleaning it up.

Other than that, not much happened really. Good practice though, I suppose. Character building and all that.
