COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN was inspired by German 1970s electronic pioneers KRAFTWERK when he composed the band's new album X+Y.

The YELLOW singer confesses he is hooked on the legend's unique melodies - and new track TALK even includes a Kraftwerk sample.

Martin says, "To begin with, they were a band I didn't quite get. Then suddenly one day it clicked and it was the best music I'd ever heard. They've totally influenced us on this record.

"I think if we're going to do anything after X+Y we're going to have to retreat behind a mask. I love the idea that they're Kraftwerk but nobody really knows who they are. They're like the original GORILLAZ. Or the electronic BEATLES."


Chris Martin didnt "get" Kraftwerk. ... ho hum....

Saw Coldplay play this weekend in Raleigh, NC and they have also discovered Johnny Cash........they did a very passable version of "Ring of Fire".

This may be rich coming from a monotonous hard techno merchant but....
Everthing hes done since the first album sounds the bloody same to me that same wailing voice over the same uninspired guitar riffs and melodies.
Preparing myself to get shot for this...
I do like the piano in "clocks" though :-/

He's not as thick as some Coldplay fans... I heard one complaining how a band had done a 'dance version' of a track off X&Y.

*sigh*
