If Hannah Montana was played by Frances Bean Cobain instead of Billy Ray Cyrus's daughter Miley, you'd pretty much have Smoosh, a two-piece indie-rock band from Seattle featuring sisters Chloe, 12, on drums and Asya, 14, on keyboards and vocals.

Before this week, I had no idea who Hannah Montana was. Now I gather she's an American tween singing sensation on her way to becoming a pop billionaire.
Which is nice for her. Hannah is apparently the alter ego of actress-singer Miley Cyrus, who between them rock out to an all-screaming, all-waving sea of pubescent worshippers. What with the dancers, the fireworks and the glittery costumes, it makes the recent U2-concert film look about as lively as a Rotary Club dinner.

Brrrr! Bit brass monkeys, isn't it? Mind you, it's a dashed sight nippier where I am, hovering over the 3,807-metre Valkyrie Dome. This Wagnerian eminence is in the heart of Queen Maud Land around 600 miles from the Crown Prince Olav Coast fringing King Haaken VII Sea. Not far away, there is Kaiser Wilhelm II Land, Princess Elizabeth Land (it might be unchivalrous to reveal that it was named after HM in 1931), Roosevelt Plateau, and the snappily named King Leopold & Queen Astrid Coast. As more adventurous readers will recognise, these majestic monikers apply to patches of chilly wasteland. I am peering at Antarctica or, to be more precise, Plate 122 of the 12th edition of The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World, which reveals that the icy continent has been sliced up like a cake by various nation states, who have deposited the names of their rulers like graffiti carved on an ancient monument. Sadly, the Atlas omits a name in the French wedge that is the geographical equivalent of a Gallic shrug: Pourquoi Pas Point.
