Peter Halligan at the Liverpool School of Language, Music, Dream and Pun on with Valerie and Randall White. March 20, 2013
From Guardian Article: "Drummond explained Liverpool's artistic pre-eminence by advancing the theory that a key line ran along Mathew Street, via the bust of psychoanalytist Carl Jung that stood close to the Cavern.
It's not as far-fetched as it sounds. Well, not quite. In 1974, local entrepreneur Peter O'Halligan purchased a warehouse on Mathew Street, believing it to stand on the exact spot that Jung once identified, after having a dream vision, as "the Pool of Life" (in fact, Jung never set foot in Liverpool). At O'Halligan's venue, known as the Liverpool School of Language, Music, Dream and Pun, artists became immersed in readings, performances and bizarre experiments. "It was the inspirational talking shop, where dole-queue dreamers developed their big ideas," Drummond says."
