    A song about those annoying people who just completely forget who to spell when they're on the internet. Sung with a certain sense of superiority.

    Ellipsis are two teenagers from Surrey who record songs in their bedrooms.

     

about

Alex (see: the tall one with a Stylophone) started on the song after he'd been talking to a friend on Skype who, whilst usually intelligent (hence the line in the chorus: "even the most intelligent people I know"), seemed to have forgotten how to spell. In ten minutes the basis of the song was written.

Will (see: the not quite as tall one with a viola) then added the second verse after Alex wouldn't stop playing his guitar and improvised the viola solo. He then changed around the final chorus and the song was complete. This all happened about ten minutes before we recorded it.

It was all recorded in Alex's bedroom, with a microphone that cost £15 and produced in Audacity.

A Song About Grammar is the first song off our forthcoming album, "Songs About Internet Pop Culture".
