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.

CCLI - London Camden Monarch - 17/05/13

Camden Monarch, London

The Retrospective Soundtrack Players

Once I had got past the hell of finding a free parking space somewhere vaguely near Chalk Farm Road this became hugely enjoyable. It was just me and Kelv doing the show for the first time in a while, but we've got quite a good chemistry down now and it's really enjoyable to do our harmonies in a live acoustic setting. I did 'That's not Love' to open the show, it's an old DC number that I'm really gutted we never got to play much. I enjoy playing it so much that it makes me want to make a solo album. I won't though, it would probably be the most niche release since, well, the last RSP album.

There was a nice friendly vibe to the show and some people even knew the words which is lovely. There were actually almost too many people to catch up with after the show, but I think I managed to say hi to everyone I meant to. I also got to meet the band Murder By Death afterwards - they came by after their gig at Dingwalls and I managed to have a quick not-too-fanboy chat with their singer Adam and a few of the other guys. A swell evening all-told.
