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.

Norwich - EPIC FAIL - 07/04/09


Norwich - no gig

Oh dear. Here's the long and short of it, I can only arsed to speak in short facts. Woke in Sheffield and went back to the Harley for Breakfast. Drove to Norwich which took quite a long time on the A roads. Spoke to promoter who told us to arrive at six. Got thowere a bit earlier so checked into T-lodge. Went to venue at six, greeted by barman who assured us that it would be dead since we were the only bands and weren't local. We then loaded our gear in. The barman then told us that we were promoting our own show, no local acts were even on the bill (we were assured that they would be), and that basically he didn't want to stay open. In his words; 'if you have to play, can we get it over and done with as quickly as possible'. The hostile atmosphere wasn't all that enticing and this guy seemed to be a complete nob, and the venue was miles out of town, so we grudgingly decided to fuck it off. I felt awful for being responsible for us going to Norwich, and we all had a little bit of a strop for half an hour.

Despite some calls to play Quasar (not mine), we decided to go to a pub, play darts and watch the footy. Other than Jack who asked me to give him some simultaneous equations to solve. That's folk n roll. Then we went back to the travelodge and sunk a bottle of Tequila and 60 bottles of Bier de Flandres which we'd bought earlier. This led to Pauly B sicking up Piri Piri chicken and Jack and Elliott running naked down the corridor. Good times.
