"WHAT AN AMAZING ANSWER TO AN INNOCENT T-SHIRT QUESTION!"
In the video above, Toronto-based radio broadcaster Alan Cross interviews Coldplay's Chris Martin. In the final minute, before saying goodbye, Martin asks the host about his T-shirt:
Chris Martin: And let me ask you: I love that you have "Swanage" on your T-shirt. What is the significance of that?
Alan Cross: Oh! This is my sister's tribute band. My sister is a... Well, I'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba, originally. Uh, that is the city on the planet that is the biggest, has the biggest fan base for the movie Phantom Of The Paradise.
Chris Martin: Right...
Alan Cross: Brian De Palma film from 1974.
Chris Martin: Okay...
Alan Cross: And my sister has even got a Phantom Of The Paradise tribute band... Swanage was the name of the mansion where Paul Williams' character, named Swan, lived as he tortured poor Winslow Leach into making a cantata for the opening of his club, called the Paradise.
Chris Martin: What an amazing answer to an innocent T-shirt question!
Alan Cross: I will get you a T-shirt.
Chris Martin: [laughing] Thanks, man.
