I guess we all know that ‘unique’ is not a comparative term. It either is or it isn’t
So I’ve been asked if I would talk at an event/conference etc at the Guildhall. There is a very long title including some bits I just don’t understand (I have asked for clarification) but one bit describes “Portsmouth’s unique musical influences”.
As far as I’m aware, this is not necessarily an event exclusively about pop or even popular music but I keep thinking about that phrase. I reckon you know that I’m pretty proud of being from Pompey and I’ve done my bit to tell the world about us …
But “unique musical influences”?
