Footnotes

  • Coldplay formed in 1996 as Pectoralz, but were re-named in 1998. They released three EPs in 1998/99 but failed to achieve a hit. Having signed to Parlophone in 1999, they recorded their first album, 'Parachutes' in September of that year and in early 2000. The first single from this, 'Shiver', was released in March 2000 and entered the UK Top 40. In June the band embarked on their first headlining tour and appeared at Glastonbury. The single 'Yellow' was released in late June and the debut album in early July.

    These photographs were taken by the vendor whilst a student in Oxford. Coldplay were co-headlining a UK tour in March-April with the Welsh four-piece band, Terris. These images capture a live performance of Coldplay just as they were on the threshold of the enormous worldwide success that was to follow upon the release of the breakthrough single, 'Yellow', and their first album, 'Parachutes'.
