This is what I get for being too bone idle to check what I'm copying and pasting! What's ironic is that only yesterday I finally got round to ordering Citizen Steely Dan to replace my scratchy old CDs and even scratchier old vinyl albums.

No I'm not Scottish - Deacon Blue is more of a reference to the Steely Dan song (Deacon Blues) than the band of that name, who I also quite like.

And last but by no means least, please accept my sincere heartfelt apology for the addition of the extraneous "e"; I would like to assure you that I most certainly do know the difference between Jamieson and Johnnie Walker!

P.S. Thankyou all for the welcome!

and the bad scotch band were named after the Steely Dan song! - You have good taste anyway DB - welcome again! and ignore both Moi and I - we are old and gaga!

You speak for yourself you wrinkly old hippy! I'm youthful and voluptuous and very on the ball!

Oh and SCOTCH refers ONLY to the alcoholic beverage - the people of Scotland are Scottish. So yah boo sucks to you, YB!
