NME On piece

The one paragraph which changed Coldplay's entire lives

02 Jan 1999

We had had played with some of the bands mentioned and when we saw our name on the list it was the most amazing shock. The best piece of press we ever had.

Just as Camden Town was the epicentre of indie cool back in the ’90s, music papers NME and the Melody Maker were weekly manuals for aspiring bands. To have studied these pages for so long – and then found themselves within them – possibly marks the first ‘through the looking glass’ experience for the fellas.

Nowadays, Chris tends not to read the band’s press. It’s unclear whether or not this measure is to avoid another tumble.
