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.

The Dawn Chorus
Alex J Dunne
Really really good fun! We were on a stage that we could hardly fit onto, but the closeness made it great fun. The locals were very pissed so we kept the tempo up as much as possible, although perhaps going too far on The town and the city, which was approximately double speed. We got our first ever encore shout from a crowd of strangers too, which was a very nice feeling. This was the sort of gig that makes you feel good about being in a bnad. The place was tiny, we probably didn't cover our petrol costs, but it was fucking good fun - rejuvinating even. And even though the pub was small, we probably played to more people than the sum of our 4 appearances at the Winchester Railway Inn (the town's proper venue). Lush
