Did you all get the email today about anagrams?? It seems Moya is watching this very topic and getting inspiration from it!! :lol: I am utterly useless at them, but i admire people who have an eye for such things :lol:

A brief explanation here.
Yes there was an email sent but only to website users who specified UK.
This was a last minute reminder to anyone in reach of London and included a offer of two tickets for the best anagram of two of Moya's songs.
Because it is possible to seperate the registration database into countries it might have been confusing if someone in Australia submitted the best answer (esp. as travel costs not included in the prize).
Don't be surprised if another anag comp (that's actually the correct technical term!!) appears here in the forum or worldwide emailing at some stage in the near future.
Hope that clears any confusion

Just to wrap this I wanted to let you know the outcome of the brief anagram competition for UK registered fans.

The object was to create the best anagram from the titles of Tracks 1 and 6 of Moya's new album and the winner was extraordinary, indeed almost spooky.
From Purple Haze and Black Night fan, Mandy, got this:

Pluck thee blazing harp

There were quite a few other brilliant entries but this was hands down winner.

Perhaps one other entry worth mentioning was from Steve in Middlesex and influenced by the cover of Clannad's Dulamann album

Zap! Beach girl hunt kelp

We should do this more often and with a wider field!
