Travis

By pioneering the vile concept of adult-orientated-indie, Travis greased the pole for every quivery-lipped drip from Lightbody to Blunt. Not content with installing this impotent aural gruel as the country’s primary musical diet, Travis insist...

Travis

Travis

Closer to what exactly? Well, maybe to hitting new peaks of indie snoredom by writing the most insipid, abysmal, life-threateningly nondescript single that precisely nobody will ever consider except in contempt… ever. Like a fly buzzing around...

Travis  :  12 Memories

Travis : 12 Memories

Pity poor Fran Healy. For a while, he was the People's Bard, the man who could make Britain sing along. He loved his girlfriend. He loved his fans. He made a big deal of not listening to many records, or reading many books, so that nothing could...

Travis : New York Radio City Music Hall

Travis : New York Radio City Music Hall

Radio City is sold out, but not full. People are afraid to join large crowds, or visit landmark buildings. NYC remains shaken, and there is an atmosphere of uncertainty. Is it wrong to settle into velvet cushions for an evening's entertainment...

Travis : The Invisible Band

Travis : The Invisible Band

Three years after their double Brit-winning, Glasto-rocking, Dad-friendly sophomore opus 'The Man Who' ate the charts and shagged the radio, do Travis still belong to us or have they auctioned their corporate souls to Bryan Adams bigness? Should...
