He said Graham took over because Damon had a sore throat IIRC.

So every time you've seen the band play Coffee & TV your first thought is "oh, Damon has a sore throat"?

No of course not but why play it otherwise? They have played a lot of gigs recently and have Isle Of Wight coming up. Rather than pull out they play a song Graham can sing. Makes sense no?

I like to think they picked it because 1) it's a great song and 2) everyone knows it. Plus it's a nice break from Parklife/For Tomorrow/This Is A Low. It's definitely a highlight at every single show they've played since writing it, it sounded great in Wolverhampton last Saturday.

This has to be the first time they've played Coffee & TV on TV since 1999, no?

I don't see why Chris Evans would lie about Damon having a sore throat? I know he's a bit of a dick but... :lol:

It's a screen, not a real window. They played the Skype thing from Australia in it earlier.

Don't get me wrong it sounded great and I know the program is a nostalgia thing but I'm sure they would want to play a new song to promote the album.

I guess so. I think it was just speculation on our part that there might be two songs. That's it I think. Really enjoying it though. :D

C&T was a very pleasant surprise. Anything from PL/TGE would of been dumb. and yes, the end was great. Long live the gospel backing!
