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.

CL - Birmingham Sunflower Lounge - 14/02/10

Sunday 14th February 2010
Birmingham Sunflower Lounge

The Dawn Chorus
Neil Morris
Carlos & The Jackal

We woke in Bath to the sound of Klaire's landlady banging on the door relentlessly to avenge the noisy van from the night before. We had tea, toast and Hob Nobs and watched the Match of the Day repeat :( The hot water tank ran out so there were at least two unhappy bunnies in the DC.

We went into Bath and had an awesome pasty. It was at this point that Wit introduced us to the greatest piece of acting in cinema history; Sam Neill's scream in Event Horizon:

We wandered round Bath, which was a lovely city, and probably still is. The drive to Birmingham was easy enough, though we played in the centre of town so it took forever to park. We met Mr Addis who put on the show and also put us up for the night. He was a bit of a legend, though the show was a bit quiet, possibly due to it being the first time he'd put on a show there. Still, it was for charity and we played pretty well. The soundman was called James and he did a decent job in a sub-standard venue (the sound booth was behind the stage.)

We then retired to Addis' house where we ate endless Doritos and looked at his collection of Futurama figures:

He loved the Beatles too. Addis had a few too many cheap Aldi's ciders and fell down the stairs, burning a hole in the airbed he was carrying at the time. He and his partner Leslie were great hosts though, and we were very grateful. Apropos of nothing, here is a picture of Matt's Potato head:
