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.

XLIX - Emma's 21st - 24/02/07

Emma's 21st
Maison de Simpson

The Dawn Chorus

Ouch, it is quite cringeworthy playing at a house party. It's only a few notches above picking up an acoustic guitar at a house party and playing Time of your Life by Green Day or something equally terrible. Luckily we had all had a few bevvies so it was bearable. Somehow - at our quietest gig ever - Neil managed to snap a string. At the same time, Keith realised that he was desperate for the toilet, leaving me and Simps to battle through an impromptu and quite shonky drum 'n' acoustic version of The Decemberists' 'We Both Go Down Together'. I had to work out the midle 8 off the top of my head and I managed it apart from the last chord, which I didn't think was too bad. As more and more drinks went down, Neil began to give me some proper schoolyard bullying about my weight, telling me that I'm holding the band back by being the only member over 10 stone (other than Matt, but he's well hidden behind the drums.) But as I told him, I have a physique, whereas he is just a weed with a buddha belly.
