The joy of email

From NZ Musician... "Oh my gawd... the Broadcast button on the computer of EMI's Publicity Mangler Lauren W must have got stuck down with Easter chocolate, cos this morning most of the country's media got to read her email dialogue trying to get a phone interview with anyone attached to the Arctic Monkeys.

Proving that just one embarrassing clanger a day is never enough, poor Lauren then repeated the exercise, sharing the love from Opshop's management with the rest of the world.

Sorry but no Lauren, Real Groove is really not equivalent to Rolling Stone in the US and Q in the UK - even if you are guaranteed the front cover as well as the feature article."
