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.

CXXV - Sheffield Harley - 06/04/09


Black Carrot

The B of the Bang
+1 unknown

Woke in Liverpool and realised that we had a £25 parking fine on Fred Galaxy. Simone took an age to emerge from the travelodge and we thought she was had had enough of the Megabunny, though she was fine and soldiered on. A little sleep depraved was all. I wanted to go to the museum opposite our travelodge, but we decided to power on to Sheffield. On the way me, Ben, Neil, Keef and Simone stopped in the Peak district to climb a peak and look at shout at some sheep which was amazing and probably better than the museum would have been. Once in Sheffield we atched a bit of Jackass and Borat and had a little sleep.

The Harley was a cool venue, but again, a little empty. Interestingly, the venue is sponsored by Bench, and they actually give away Bench clothes to anyone who is willing to wear them on stage. This was music to the ears of the DC and Botb, with Jack nabbing a hoodie, Matt and Elliott t-shirts and Paul a pair of jeans. Paul also picked up a spare which will hopefully be paying off our parking fines on ebay very soon.

We played really well I thought, other than slightly fucking up Schumann. My voice seemed to be on fire, which was just as well as Keef and Matt had colds and were both totally out of action.

After us Black Carrot played, and they were either the most brilliant or the most mental thing I've ever seen. Or both. They would have made 'Trout Mask Replica' sound fairly commercial. One of them was playing a homemade cross between a saxophone and a pair of bagpipes, and the singer was prone to having a complete meltdown on stage. We then headed back to the T-lodge where I think everyone went instantly to sleep after last night's bumper night in Bumper.
