Q. I saw in an interview that Coldplay used to be called Trombolese. Free from desire by Gala just came on shuffle and I noticed when the singer says "strong beliefs" it sounds weirdly like trombolese. This song also came out around the time the band was formed. Could this hilariously be the inspiration behind the shortlived band name?


The Oracle replies:

Tsk, tsk! Josh if you're going to send the same question FIVE months after I have answered it, prepare to do some detention.
Drop and give me fifty!

We do have an Oracle search option so if in doubt, check there first.
