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.

Lincoln Drill Hall
Tom Williams and the Boat
The Dawn Chorus
....so we woke up at Bullsy's awesome flat and one DC member was less than on top form. Little did I know when he uttered one single deafening cough at 5am that Nelly had already been sick 3 or 4 times, with another 6 or 7 to come during the course of the day.
We watched a bit of Super Nanny at Bullsy's and then wandered into town for BOGOF full english breakfasts. Nice.
Lincoln has an incredible cathedral, I'm not a religious man but it was quite awe-inspiring. I didn't find this out until it was all lit up at night and I was desperately looking for my car so that I could drive home. Before this could happen we played to about a hundred 15-year olds, which was different to say the least. We actually went down quite well, until we played Last Day of April, to which a few of them slow danced but most of them cleared off. Something to remember for our next underage gig.
Nelly had an emotional day - the highest he got on his wellbeing scale was 83%, but he was as low as 25% at times. On the way home he got stuck on a dead end road and threw his Mocha. And that isn't a euphemism for ejaculation. We did, however, all make it home, albeit with sore heads and tired, tired bodies. Strange days indeed.
