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.

LXXVI - The Cross Kings, Kings Cross - 26/08/07

The Cross Kings, Kings Cross
Sunday 26th August 2007

David Goo
The Dawn Chorus
Steve Bland Band
Jukebox Vandals
Nigel Spooner-Harvey

Despite all 5 of us being stuck in a traffic jam in Neil's Tardis 306, we made it in pretty good time. Had a decent soundcheck then enjoyed the Cross Kings' awesome food - Veggie Lasagne, Risotto and Chocolate Brownies - oh yes. Nigel S-H was w nutcase legend, he did a poem before every band's set. Before our set it was one about trying to make soup and throwing a fish at his Brother. Or something. Steve Bland sorted us with the gig and I thought his set was pretty cool too, coming on like a kind of chirpier Ed Harcourt, although the sound in the venue didn't help to get across his mandolin, accordion and brass players.

We played fairly well and it was nice to do a decent length set, although I made one of my worst errors ever by starting a song with my capo on the wrong fret. Ouch. This may have had something to do with drinking a bit more than usual since I didn't have to drive for once in a blue moon. OOOHH, GARY LAGER! Good fun all round xx
