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.

CXXVII - Preston Mad Ferret - 09/04/09


Thursday 9th February 2009
Preston Mad Ferret

The Dawn Chorus
Mr & Mrs
The B of the Bang

Woke up completely knackered and set off to Preston. Let it be said that the folks from the Corner House are 100% bona fide legends - they put us up, gave us a lock in and then gave us tea and hot cross buns in the morning. The drive to Preston was the first trafficy journey which was mildly annoying since it led to us missing the football museum in Preston. That made it 3 museums I'd missed on the tour. The Mad Ferret was a really cool venue and it was probably the best we played on the whole tour. At the start we were only getting a ripple of polite applause, by the end we seemed to have won loads of people round. Thats probably the best feeling there is as a band.

After the show we loaded out to head home and sleep in our own beds, though not until after an insanely long drive - 5 hours! The wind didn't help. Nelly was a legend and drove the whole way - I needed partially stolen coffee to keep me up. I'm going to hell kids. That's folk n roll.
