Chris on Radio 1 Last Night

Did everyone tune into Chris' appearance on Radio 1 in the UK last night? I guess if you are actually in the UK you had to be up extra early this morning to listen in. I managed to listen to the whole interview and it was quite entertaining. Chris was funny as usual. He even ended up performing an impromptu version of "Songbird" by Oasis with his alleged "biggest fan." Be sure to check out the Chris Martin photo gallery to see some captures of the webcam feed that was being sent out live during the interview.
If you forgot to listen in or just didn't feel like waiting (or waking) for the show, no worries. Bernie's Coldplay Site has come through for you yet again. I've got exclusive audio files of several of the more notable moments from the interview. Other than the annoying background music that they threw in all over the place, the clips are pretty good!

Good news for Glastonbury fans. Turns out Chris' letter might have actually played an instrumental role in saving the festival. From what I've seen around the web, it doesn't sound like Coldplay will actually be performing at the show this year, though. However, a mighty fine replacement has been rumored to be a possibility for the headlining slot. See GreenPlastic for more on that!
There is also a news story over at Ananova that says Coldplay asked the band Royksopp to record a dance remix of 'Politik,' the opening track off of 'A Rush of Blood to the Head.' No word on whether the remix will be released yet. Svein, a member of Royksopp, is quoted as saying "I think it's basically for laughs. I think it's the first time ever they had got remixes for the music. I've been told this might be a lie just to impress us. Doing a remix for someone like Coldplay, who have a really good vocalist and they also have quite appealing harmonies, to us it was all just fun."
And finally, a special thanks goes out to John Johnson who sent in some pictures of Coldplay as they warmed up for their January appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. Check them out in the Coldplay photo gallery.
