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.

CLX - Preston Mad Ferret - 04/04/10

Sunday 4th April 2010
Preston Mad Ferret

The Dawn Chorus
The B of the Bang

We all awoke at Elliott Gregg's house for cereal, toast and creme eggs. Elliott's parents are legends. It was Elliott's last ever visit to his childhood home too, as his parents are moving soon. So after an emotional send-off we got on the way to Preston, which basically involved following any signs that said 'NORTH'.

On the way, however, we checked into our hotel in Liverpool, where the receptionists seemed slightly suspicious at the amount of people we were attempting to check into 3 rooms. They let us carry on though.

We all fell asleep on the short, hot drive to Preston, where we had a very smooth soundcheck thanks to the wonderful Mr Lomax before heading to Wetherspoons (Subway was shut). A good three days into the tour and Dave BOTB still couldn't manage to poo, despite a 'spoons curry.

Ottersgear, Revere and Bang were all outstanding on this night, and we played fucking well too, despite a bit of a lairy start after thinking we'd lost a trumpet. We found it though, somewhere amongst the millions of cases that become involved when us, Bang and Revere all share a bill.

Many lager and limes consumed, another fun visit to the Mad Ferret ended with an early(for this tour, anyway) night.

We loved the gig! Please come back to Preston soon.
