The Spell Check's In The Post - Hopefully

Sometimes a press release comes along that makes you bite your lip with terror. This is one of those. Keith Mullin, presumably, works at The Liverpool Insitute for the Performing Arts. I'm hoping he, maybe, does PE or metalwork or something as he's surely - SURELY - can't be in an actual teaching role? Not with this grasp of the English language. Or, as a reader has it:

This one is so painful. I can't even tell if it's the random punctuation or the grammar mistakes that are making my head explode.

Begin forwarded message:

Dear All

Welcome to Sound City, Lipa-ish Allsorts features 1st & 2nd year music students from the school that produced The Wombats, Eugene McGuiness and Sandi Thom. In addition to, The Zutons materializing whilst they attended LIPAs New Deal for Musicians course some years ago. Anyway that’s the bullshit and flag waiving done with. I WISH IT WAS

There are 30 artists for you to mull over, some of whom recently featured in Music Week, some of whom did not, that does not imply their not quality! NO, I'M SURE IT DOESN'T The beauty of this moment is LIPAs music culture is evolving, fostering a way of thinking that encourages creativity, is student centred and individually focused. You’ll be seeing bands in development, some further down the road than others, opinionated individuals who chant and occasionally curse. CRIVENS! Nonetheless, in respect of this cultured metropolis, this muddy pool, we encourage artists to produce music because they mean it and because they can. Hope you enjoy Liverpool culture, a Sound City, as they would say in Bootle;


Keith Mullin & Eddie Lundon
