Published Aug 25, 2008Theres no denying that Coldplay are one of the most un-rocknroll bands on the planet. Not only are they the "musical equivalent of NyQuil," but, according to a recent Mirror interview with singer Chris Martin, the band enjoy, um, sewing.
"Making clothes together in our studio makes us feel complete." Martin told the newspaper. "We probably sound like a group of grannies in a knitting circle but it's the truth and it gives us some control over our visual identity."
"We see if they have a sewing kit in the amenities draw in case we feel inspired," Martin added. "When you are a big band and everyone is taking shots at you, the more things you can do together the better."
In the interview, Martin did not mention whether Brian Eno, who produced the groups latest LP Viva La Vida Or Death and All His Friends, partook in the stitch and bitch, or if perhaps sewing was a new form of oblique strategy.
