Will decided to come back on the condition that every decision made would be a group decision and everything would be split between all members equally.

From then forth, they would meet every afternoon after classes, play music and write new songs together.

Every night they would get together in Jonny's flat and listen to albums by Radiohead, U2, Oasis and REM.

After more than a year had passed in this manner, one day, Will came bursting into Chris and Jonny's flat (for they had moved out of the dorm in the meantime and taken up a little, cheap, dingy flat) during a jam session with a huge grin. "I got us our first gig !"

"Well, that's great!," said Chris and Jonny simultaneously, "but what are we gonna call ourselves?"

Guy piped up from the corner "Did you know Starfish have neither brains nor blood?"

Being shocked that this was the first time Guy had spoken in over 6 months, the band decided to accept Guy's idea

Chris looked at Guy and laughed "Mate, sounds like you're the one with no brains here. We got a serious problem and you just throw in a random fact instead of discussing with us ?"

"No Chris, you don't understand, I was giving you a hint," said Guy as his robot brain had yet to get used to the human language called English.

(Can someone explain why the name of this thread changed for a few minutes?)

(What ?! I did not observe that, what happened ?)

Chris reflected. "Starfish...yeah. Um, yeah. Why not, actually ? Jonnyboy, when you make the flyer of our event, type Starfish, right ?"

(It said "Random Coldplay Thoughts....Let's Write a Story!")

"Okay Chris!" called Jonny from the other room, "Starfish it is."

(Strange, how could that happen ?)

Chris tore the event booking out of Will's hand and read: "Bull and Gate. Ah lovely place that is, I like it. 16th of January. Hm. Wait ! Is it - is it...today's the 6th! Are you out of your mind, Will ? Only 10 days to rehearse ? We're never gonna pull that off !"

As they finally stood on top of the stage on their big day, looking down on a sold-out crowd mostly consisting of their college friends, Chris began awkwardly introducing themselves as Starfish, rambling on about some other things he could later not even remember, and then finally delved into their first song, strumming his guitar and singing "There goes another day, my friends are telling me that I would be OK, I'm gonna be okaaay..."

Chris was nervous, dear God he was nervous, he even did his little mumbling thing more than a little.

But as we know, they were able to do the gig at its end anyway. Together, concentrating on the issue, they had worked for days.

(sorry, I am not aware of the real history, so I just continue the story)

And so they played a few songs, apologized once again, and left the stage at around midnight, relieved that it had not gone too badly but also with especially Chris being worried if they would ever have a future as a band.

So Chris thought, "If we want a future, maybe we need another person in the band as our dedicated keyboardist," so he called his friend Tim Rice-Oxley.
