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.

Rock Sound Review - July 2008

A heartfelt and intensely tuneful marriage between folk and indie, The Dawn Chorus write charming mini-anthems that will undoubtedly propel them to alt-stardom. Sounding like Wilco barn-dancing with a latter-day Supergrass, "The Big Adventure" is a country-pop classic waiting to happen. 8/10

I have no energy to write about our 100th show. Predictably, as with all London shows, we got a bit lost and it ended up taking us 3 hours to get there. Quicker to get home though - no repeat of 'Lost in Shoreditch' this time.

Steve Bland played a really good set, including a cover of our song 'Michael', a song played down on the floor on Ukeleles, and, most importantly, a Melodica duet. On a melodica with the blowy pipe bit attached. For those who don't subscribe to Melodica weekly, this is basically musical fellatio. It wouldn't take Freud to see the sexual connotation involved in pulling off such a duet. By the way - according to Freud, what comes between Fear and Sex? Funf. If you get that joke you're as sad as me, congratulations.

We played ok, I had very sweaty eyes. I mean, incredibly sweaty, I couldn't open them for 2 songs. On the way home we listened to Andrew WK.
