Elbow: Koko, London
Nick Hasted, Independent, The, 9 September 2005
ELBOW HAVE BEEN brushed by fame almost accidentally; first, when their debut album, 2000's Asleep at the Back, was Mercury nominated, then when the singer, Guy Garvey, went out with the Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman. Most telling, Chris Martin of Coldplay has confessed that a song on their X&Y album was based on Elbow's anthemic 'Grace under Pressure'.
