Stone Coldplay

Coldplay continue to drink heavily from the Peter Saville fountain with the artwork for their new CD Viva La Vida. After the color coding used on X&Y (see Blue Monday, Power Corruption & Lies) they now adapt fine art (see Power, Corruption and Lies) using Eugène Delacroix's 'Liberty Leading The People' with a Banksyesque daub of graffiti showing the title...

I also note with interest the opening track on the CD is called 'Life in Technicolor' - the exact title and spelling of a Hunky Dory song from 1997. Anyone drinking from that chalice is sure to be poisoned!!
