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.

XLI - Portsmouth Edge of the Wedge - 31/10/06

Tuesday 31st October 2006
Portsmouth Edge of the Wedge

Steve Dalzell
Sarah & Lewis (without Lewis)
The Dawn Chorus

Amazingly our fourth time at the Edge of the Wedge and our most fun yet. The 4 of us all played for once, and we seem to have finally got the hang of doing acoustic sets. On the way into the venue a nice man held the door open for me, only for me to lose control of what I was carrying and let keith’s bass swing off my shoulder and smack into the man’s face. So sorry again to that man. We played a new song today called ‘Lobster Telephone’, which is meant to cleverly compare a frustrating female to a piece of modern art, but as usual a lot of the lyrics had to be chopped about to fit the rhythm so the meaning got lost a bit along the way. Anyway, it’s new, and we played it. It will hopefully be on our next recording.

After us a girl called Sarah played some modern pop songs such as ‘Crazy’, ‘Sing it back’ and ‘I just can’t get you out of my head’, with just a simple finger-picked guitar and beautiful vocals. It was very enjoyable and probably much more appropriate than our dreary old nonsense. It was obviously a night for strange cover versions cos a guy called Steve then played ‘American Pie’ and George Michael’s ‘Father Figure’ amongst his set. Luckily he didn’t play the full unabridged American Pie though. Not that he didn’t play it well but it’s about 18 minutes long and I wanted to go home to me dinner.

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't

a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
