We're never quite sure if it's that, when he gets access to a household name, Gordon feels obliged to gush, or if he's contractually obliged to gush, but naturally a few minutes hanging out with Coldplay has resulted in a large chunk of student paper wowism this morning.
It's a pity, actually, as Martin did give the paper some nice quotes:
“When people say we have moved on and shouldn’t play old hits like Yellow, I laugh.
“It’s like growing your hair and then wearing a hat. What’s the point of growing it? That’s how I feel about hits.”
Trouble is, Gordon doesn't quite know how to cope with this and tries to keep up with the knowingly-weird:
He doesn't manage it.
Told that the new show is based on Mary Poppins, the Bizarre column seizes its chance to write a headline on the model of the Scottish football classic Super Caley Go Ballistic - Celtic Are Atrocious:
They don't manage it. It doesn't even have the right number of syllables in it.
Meanwhile, Gordon sneers at Radiohead's attempts to give away French gig tickets to cyclists:
Dismal? Well, they only had a 30% take up. A raft of seats? 70 unused tickets in a 17,000 venue. Still, why let the facts get in the way of laughing at people who try to do something about the environment, then?
