Heh, yeah, that's pretty ace! I bet there's no other group on last.fm that has ASAAR as their no.1. We rule.

I won't be joining. Absolutely nothing against last.fm and certainly not against the group, I just wouldn't to horrible pollute the charts.

I'm nice like that.

I don't really understand how those last fm charts work. Is it numbers of different people who've listened to the same band?

Yes, the number of different people who've listened to the same band. It used to be otherwise a few years back and was easy to just leave your 'puter playing the same tune overnight to skew the charts, but now it's better.

So it doesn't matter if you've listened to them once or a hundred times, it counts for the same? That's weird. I always assumed it was the number of songs played, like the other last.fm charts, but the numbers seemed far too low. I just thought it didn't work very well.

Ours must be the only group chart on last.fm without The Beatles, Radiohead and The Postal Service as the top three.

The charts are surprisingly resilient to pollution, I've been trying for years to, no avail.

I'd strongly urge andrew and david to sign up because you're not alone in listening to that music of yours (you both like the edgar broughton band after all) so get with it, you squares!

My musical preference is 45.19% similar to the Anorak forum group. Musically, I do not fit in ...

How well do you fit in?
I'll get me coat.

I'm 75% similar, but apparently nowhere near twee enough.
