Yesterday The Quietus reported that David Cameron might have a secret past as a gurning boxmaker. Now, it emerges that Coldplay, similarly polite nice boys with a pretty penny in the bank, are rolling a fat one in the studio.

According to The Sun, the dance direction has been led by drummer Will Champion is leading the way to a bright new dawn. "The lads are still on a creative roll in the studio and Will is bringing lots of ideas to the table," a 'source' told the rag.

"He's got a new drum machine and has been having a lot of fun pushing it to its limits. His most recent offering is turbo-charged, to say the least, but the lads have been having a great time working with it.

"Will has got a track in seven-four time that he’s working on, 99 per cent of rock music is based around the standard four-four time signature.

"It's only the most adventurous of jazz people who compose anything with such an irregular beat. But he’s pressing forward with it."

There was an MTV interview with Radiohead in about 2000 or 2001 just before they played Red Rocks. Thom Yorke said that he wished the then-current crop of touted Radioheadalikes (Coldplay, Muse, JJ72 et al) "good luck" with trying to rip off Kid A. Now, a decade later, Coldplay are getting into odd time signatures, woop-de-fucking-do. The INTRO alone for '2+2=5' in 7/4. The saddest part of all of this is that I am still a Radiohead apologist even after all these years. I hate them, sometimes, you know. Bet you a pound that whatever the fucking time signature, Coldplay manage to make the same album AGAIN for a fourth time. (Or is it fifth? I stopped counting at 'Parachutes'.)
