Q.  Did Tim Wheeler of Ash really play guitar on 1.36? If so what part?

Yes, he did - I've always assumed the part Chris would normally play but I can't be sure. There's an article about it here.

Q.  Is this movie actually happening? As a Coldplay/Foo Fighters fan, I would absolutely love it!!

Not so much "happening" as "happened"! This is very old news - going back as far as 2002.
I've answered questions about it before in 2009, 2012 & 2013.

Q.  Dear Oracle, I was on YouTube and I came across a short clip on Chris and Jonny, and they were apparently going to be in a horror movie? The title of the clip was "SLASHED: Chris Martin And Jonny Buckland In Horror Film!" Is this a real film? Thanks:)


For those that don't know, the film Slashed was a concept by the band Ash back in 2003. It was scheduled to be shown at the time but until now it hadn't seen the light of day. Chris & Jonny took parts in it as spoof detectives based on Sherlock Holmes characters.

Q.  Hi Oracle, whats the name of the Chris Martin and Ash song from Shaun of the Dead and where can I get it?

There are three Ash songs in the film's soundtrack, Orpheus, Meltdown and a cover of The Buzzcock's Everybody's Happy Nowadays featuring Chris on vocals. You can actually find it on itunes.
