    Hey debs (!) - that wasn't me - that was that awful ToffeeBoy character. Oh, and what other last.fm group would have Bill Oddie joint top of its chart. Rock on!!!!

    What's that, TalkingScarlet, that comment over on t'Spill wasn't intended to make us feel guilty? Oh, then I won't bother adding a shout here...

    Not a bad year for Leonard Cohen - first of all one of his songs becomes the fastest selling single of all time and now he tops the Spill Christmas Chart! Merry Christmas to you all - keep on Spilling...

    Kalyr, that'd be my fault I'm afraid - trying to get up to speed with Marillion before i see them in Concert on Thursday. somehow I didn't feel the need to familiarise myself with Motorhead before seeing them on Saturday night - fortunately my hearing has recovered in time for Thursday

    One reason there's so much RT is that I'm in my car with my iPod for 90 minutes (at least) every weekday...

    Don't think so, nor the Passions. The Teardrop Explodes are also there a lot. All good, I reckon and All About Eve should definitely take notice and reform so I can see them live!

    I've eaten all the scons, or scoans, so it hardly matters. Next week: the world's biggest omelette.

    Scons. It's not necessarily regional, it's also class-based and a reflection of one's place in the dominant relations of production. And I'll own up to being of the Passions fans; I assume we're all listening the the same track...

    as a half Cornish lass we put butter on the 'scoan', then jam then clotted cream (if you're going to indulge yourself, no point in doing it by halves I say). Who are all these people listening to the Passions?

    I'm coming down on the side of "scons" , whether drop scones or the kind you eat with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Being Cornish by upbringing, (though Scots (carpenter), Roma (horsetrader), Dutch (fen drainer), Flemish (silk weavers and mad inventors) and English (pharmacists and charlatans) by ancestry, I don't use butter but put the cream on first to make a base for the jam. How do you do yours?

    Scons - definitely scons. We Scots invented them so we can get to say how they're pronounced!

    Could somebody nip round the shop and fetch some milk, please? I'm making drop scones...
