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.
*MEGABUNNY FUNTIME TOUR*
Sunday 12th April 2009
The George Tavern, London
The Dawn Chorus
The B of the Bang
The last show of the proper tour. Woke up in Elliott Gregg's house and after watching a bit of Junior with Arnold Schwarzenegger ("I'm gonna be a Mummy too!") Elliott's folks treated all nine of us to a cooked breakfast which is just outstanding. We then walked to a pub to watch the footy - it was a bit of a 1 pub 1 shop town, and apparently Elliott had worked in both.
We were only just outside London, so it was easy enough to get to the George Tavern, which was an extremely cool venue, if a little run down. Though apparently it's older than Canada, so you can't really complain. Both bands were a little tired and emotional but played well, in my humble opinion. It was cool to see some of our London chums and 'Happiest Home' is turning into a bit of a show-stealer for us, we will certainly be rolling that out a lot more in the future. The megabunny even avioded a police raid outside Neil's house at 2am in the morning when we were stopped by a van containing about 8 rozzers. They were nice enough though and didn't find the huge bag of skag in Pauly B's bag. Folk n roll.
Finally, in the words of Wit:
Jack didn't stop talking til the end of the tour,
Elliott was date-raped so his arse is sore,
Wit was mistaken for a lady a lot,
Matt saved his love so his voice was shot,
Neil cossacked in Bumper without a care,
Kyle maintained his luxurious hair,
Keith had a trip to A+E,
Ben went four minutes without losing a key,
A worrying smell of Piri-Piri,
Who's that in the toilet? It's Pauly B!
Julian and Fred were simply sublime,
Here's to the next Megabunny Funtime!
