It should be EPs surely? Should I take my copy back to the shop and demand a refund?
listening to this now, it has some stuff new to me and some stuff id forgotten about, I really like the ones without drums or drum machine for percussion, makes it sound even more otherwordly, wish theyd done a whole album like that
Capital letters for the abbreviation EP, followed by little s for the plural, tells you the s is not part of the initialism (like EPS), it's just more than one EP. Sometimes you get p's and q's, but that's about the only case where apostrophes mark plurals.
They had problems labelling the two discs of the Loveless remaster, and there was a digital glitch on one track, wasn't there. NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL.
I imagine the release of the whole project was delayed by Kevin Shields doing this:
- Eps? NO
- Ep's? Who is Ep?
- E.P.'s? Too much punctuation - or not enough? Add fifty more layers and see
- ///'''E.P.'''\\\s? Eighteen minutes of the same punctuation mark?
- What does jungle-influenced punctuation look like? Better spend five years experimenting to see
- Regardless, must hire and fire eighteen different proofreaders and give Alan McGee a nervous breakdown
It is a plural but EP is an abbreviation. Technically it is wrong but it is nowhere near as bad as people sticking aprostophes on random plural's.
I thought of the irony of Kevin Shields being renowned for being a perfectionist, as well as the whole "I'm working on the liner notes" thing.
I really hope he joins the boards now just to post "reverse reverb and tremolo > grammar, GAYL0RD so STFU"
Apostrophe's are the tremolo arms of punctuation NEED'S MORE TREMOLO'''S noob
