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.

CCXXXVIII - Leicester Crumblin' Cookie - 19/10/12

Leicester Crumblin' Cookie

The Retrospective Soundtrack Players
Oxygen Thief
One Suspicious Monkey

We needed this to be good after the Bristol gig, and despite not exactly being rammed (20 people?), we just smashed it. I don't know what happened but something clicked and we had an absolutely storming set. After the show the majority of the band had to head back to Hampshire to play in their covers band (yes, really) and three of us (myself, Kelv, Whyntie) stayed in Leicester with Barry aka Oxygen Thief before our Birmingham show the following night.

After the gig we went out for a quite large one with the venue owner Tinny - and what a guy he is. He knows every single person in Leicester, he is like a Leicester version of our keyboard player Pauly B. After meeting tonnes of friendly people and imbibing a few PINTS(!) of Long Island Iced Tea, we staggered back to the T-lodge where we got all rock and roll and threw the menus out of the window. Kelv also ripped the curtain down but then had to re-hang it in the morning when the sun came through the window.
