Q.  Dear Oracle,

Today I found myself watching the music video for Shiver and couldn't help but wonder... Is there any place I can buy Guy's Space Invaders t-shirt? I love it.

I've no idea where you can get an exact t-shirt from almost 15 years ago but Space Invaders tees are very easy to find. Whether online, specialist vintage shops or any stockists of retro clothing. You may even get lucky at a thrift shop.
FYI: Will is also wearing a Space Invaders t-shirt in the Shiver video.

Q.  Hello there!
I've heard that your handsome bassplayer does some photography. My question is if he has a page where he uploads the photos? Or could it be seen somewhere else?

Yes, Guy likes photography but no he doesn't have a public page where he uploads them. Some of his photos appear in Matt McGinn's Roadie book but there were no individual credits so it's not possible to tell you which are Guy's.

Q.  Hi Oracle! Do you know what is Guy's favorite song to play? why?

On the last tour one of Guy's favourite songs to play was Charlie Brown. It was the anticipation of the wristbands - knowing they were about to start flashing.

Q.  I recently saw on twitter that one of their fans tweeted that Guy was on Pointless Celebrities, is that true?

No. For those who don't know, Pointless is a quiz show where you're trying to find answers that the public are least likely to have replied when polled.
This week one of the categories was Famous Bass Guitarists. There followed a list of bass players and the contestants had to say which bassist played with which band. They were trying to get a pointless answer - one which returned 0 correct replies.
Guy Berryman's name was one of the answers but none of the contestants chose his to guess. After the round had finished, Alexander Armstrong - the host - wrongly guessed he was in Keane.
The interesting part of this is Richard Osman, who is a side-kick to Alexander, is the brother of a famous bass guitarist himself - Mat Osman from Suede.

Q.  Hey Oracle!
I've always wondered, how does Guy divide his time between Apparatjik and Coldplay? He works more on Coldplay, doesn't he? And do Jonny, Will and Chris feel bad about him being also in another band? Thanks for answering

The thing with Apparatjik is that all the members have also been busy with primary jobs; Mags was still in A-ha until quite recently, Jonas from Mew has band commitments and Martin continues with his "day job".
They make it work around their priorities. Guy's priority is Coldplay but when the band aren't in the studio or touring, he's free to work elsewhere as he has done - not just with Apparatjik.
It's not just Guy though. Chris, Jonny & Will have all collaborated, performed, guested (or whatever) with other artists.

Q.  Hey Oracle!
I read in a Danish music magazine that Chris has tried to sell one night with Guy for one million dollars for charity. Is this true or is it just another one of Chris' hilarious jokes?
Love from Denmark!

It's absolutely a joke. I've had a couple of people asking for more details on that auction but of course it's not happening. Chris was making a reference to Guy's good looks. They're all good looking - obviously.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
Who is the guy in this picture between Lady Gaga and Guy? Also, are any of the Coldplay band members likely to join twitter?


The guy is another Guy - Guy Garvey from the band Elbow.
I doubt very much the band members will ever tweet via a personal account.

Q.  What's Chris Martin's official facebook?? Pls I need to know!!! Thanx Oracle!!

He doesn't have one & never has. In fact, the only member of the band who has ever had a Facebook account is Guy but not any more. He closed it years ago.

Q.  Hey Oracle.
So I know that Will sings as back up most of the time. Jonny does back up in Don't Panic, but what about Guy. Has he ever sung and if so where? If not, why? Does he sing bad or does he just not want to.
Thanks, Chris.

Guy can sing; he sings backing vocals on Fix You & Viva la Vida for example.
He also sings with Apparatjik too.

Q.  Oh omniscient oracle,

Guy produced an album with a band I think it was a male/female duo, but I can't remember the name. I know he's done work with Apparatjik and The Pierces and Hudson Hank but for some reason, I can't think of what band it might be.

Do you think you could help me out?


Allison Pierce also features in the male/female duo you're thinking of: James Levy & The Blood Red Rose - as well as The Pierces.
