They did some live show thing on the BBC a few days ago. It was funny as fcuk, Chris Martin seemed to be dancing to completely diffrent songs to the ones he was performing. There was just no relation to the music and his performance. I wonder if he was listening to some decent music on an ipod.Although I do like a few of the songs they have done, they are completely overhyped, and everytime I see CM I want to kill.And mr Chris Martin normal people have a forename and a surname, not a forename and then another forename you fucking prat.

not right now, but yeah, I've hit it a coupla times in the last few days and qute like it.been a fan of them since I saw them at T in the park a few years ago.A lot of folk are generally down on them which is fine if thats their opinion. Don't have a lot of time for coldplay bashing in general though. I  think there used to be someone on here called "make coldplay history" which I thought was quite funny at the time.

I can see where you're coming from but at the end of the day- if hes still a bit insecure, despite all his apparent sucess , whats the problem?The whole oasis/blur thing was a bag of shite  (am I still allowed to say shite on here by the way?) but theres a lot of things like that in my life so I try not to let them get to me too much!

Gervais steals limelight from Coldplay (Friday June 20, 2008 08:50 AM) Rocker Chris Martin was recently upstaged by Ricky Gervais at his own concert - after the comedian attracted more attention than Coldplay themselves. The Yellow hitmakers were recording a live show for the BBC when fans suddenly spotted The Office star was in their midst, turning their focus toward the funnyman - and away from the main stage.But Martin refused to lose his calm, joking to the crowd: "Ricky performs Fix You better than I do." Johnny Rotten has branded Coldplay a bunch of "poncey masturbators".more stories like thisThe Sex Pistols frontman pities the people who go to watch the band - who are currently number one in the UK album charts with new album 'Viva La Vida Or Death and All His Friends' - because they are just "men in anoraks".He told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I pity the poor b*****s who have to watch them. They are utterly humourless."I met them a few years ago, said hello and realised they were just men in anoraks. They looked like a gang of little poncey masturbators."There is no fun, they don't offer joy. Their music has a couple of quite nice tones here and there but it's a box of tosh sold to slightly inadequate, half-baked people."

BHB 10.6.6
20-06-08, 13:43
There's nowt wrong with it...it's almost impossible to hate them for what they do, they simply don't generate that amount of emotion either way. I'd say 60% of their album sales are to people who buy their music when they do their saturday shopping.Essentially Coldplay play the sort of music that is best described as "Music for people who don't like Music"

If only.The peer groups I see are generally a bunch that have fallen for the same marketing hype dreamed up by somebody in blue-tinted specs trying to make big bucks for a music corporation.People with a keen interest in music generally embrace a variety of styles rather than  latching on to some narrow sterotyped niche to the exclusion of anything else. Metal heads are the classic example as the bottling of the rapper graphically demonstrates (if you're charitable enough to consider it music rather than race based which I'm not).

If I'm being positive about the eclectic sample of your music collection you've posted then I'd say you go out of your way to find things you like Billy. Being negative I'd say it's about self-image and impressing visitors. Only you know the reality. Dissing Coldplay and company does smack of "I couldn't posssibly admit to liking that even though I haven't heard it". Has anyone listened to the new album? Someone gave me a copy of the last one that I listened to a few times before it got buried under more boppy ditties that appeal to my sense of fun.

Stephanos Wephanos
