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.

CLI - Sheffield The Harley - 15/02/10

Monday 15th February 2010
Sheffield The Harley

The Dawn Chorus
Cats: For Peru

We like the Harley. We left Addis' house early after Neil and Wit had played a truly special rendition of 'Sweet Child o' Mine' on an acoustic bass and guitar, and we had watched the Sam Neill video a few hundred more times.

When we arrived in Sheffield Matt crushed Neil's leg while parking the van. But Neil is a tough man and it didn't faze (sp?) him. We went for a walk in Sheffield and looked at the big wheel...

but we didn't go on it as it was £6.50. Instead we went into another HMV and didn't buy anything, as we generally tend to do.

Today's soundman was called Gibbs. He did a great job.

The Harley is a great venue run by cool people. They gave us two rooms in the hotel, free beers and breakfast in the morning, though Pauly B wasn't up to it. Whay wasn't he up to it? Because we went to Corporation after our show, quite possibly the worst club in the whole world. The only drinks were Vodka and Alcopop or Jagermeister. And the alcopop was on tap. You should not be able to order a drink by its colour ("Blue.") It was 5op for vodka and alcopop before midnight. The upstairs bar was hotter than the sun and made my glasses instantly steam up. They played 'She fucking hates me' by Puddle of Mudd. The toilets were pitch black and covered in piss. The whole place was painted black. Wow.

I forgot to mention that Cats: For Peru were great and the Djs basically played my record collection to a T, though they didn't have Nate Dogg & Warren G's 'Regulate'. After the club this happened:
