    Q. Dear Oracle: Today is Mother's Day here (Mexico) but I was wondering when is it in England? You got one right? by the way I would like to say hi to all the moms (including yours and the band members) and wish them a great day, but if they're already in heaven I'll pray for them all :) Love you!!

    The Oracle replies:

    Well it's sort of strange as we also call it Mothering Sunday; it's always on a Sunday here (as most of the world) but you celebrated it yesterday, on a Monday. As it happens we had just arrived back from Mexico the day before Mother's Day which in the U.K was March 14th.

    Q. Hi lovely, Who made this website? I really love this design! Bye!

    The Oracle replies:

    Wendy & Brian at Slender Fungus respond with great creativity when presented with ideas from the band camp. They're pretty cool dudes it has to be said!

    Q. Who created the portrait of Coldplay for the 51st Grammys? Thanks for your answer.

    The Oracle replies:

    The 51st Grammy Awards chose a subtitle, Music Makes Us (aka Celebrating the Music that Makes us), with selected artists chosen to reveal their musical inspirations. Those song titles were then used by the design company TBWA/ Chiat/Day to form an image of the artists. At the time we ran a little feature which I think you'll like.

    Q. Dear Oracle, Was the original parachute globe bought specifically for the album cover, or was it just a globe that one of the band mates had lying around at their house?

    The Oracle replies:

    It wasn't bought for the album cover. The globe was used during their live shows at the time and was only used for the cover as a last minute idea.

    Q. Dear Allmighty Oracle, Do the band memebers like Amy Winehouse? Do you? I love her songs especially one called Valerie (GUESS WHY! haha)it would be interesting to know if you like her too.

    The Oracle replies:

    The band don't know Amy personally but as an artist, yeah and I have to say I love her and have since Frank but Back to Black is amazing. I can guess why you like Valerie but thought you'd like to check out the original. Amy collaborated with

    Mark Ronson on his version which appeared on his album, er, Version; an album of covers.
