Hey, i've searched the forums for a Travis thread and well didnt find one and so i thought i should start one in here. For those people who dont know Travis, Travis is band and it isnt the name of a single person, they hail from Scotland and have had success over the past years. If your would like to listen to them, listen to:
Re-offender
Beautiful occupation
Sing
Side
Some of their famous songs.

Travis are amazing. I've only got Singles and The Invisible Band. I want to pick up more, but they're usually pretty pricy. Good band, great live too. Have you heard their cover of Hit Me Baby One More Time?

I absolutely love them... and their music, of course! Perhaps not THE best band but they are just such nice guys. Any Scots should be proud that they share the same nationality. (not that I'm Scottish) I'm dying to see them live. Hopefully they'll do a tour soon since their new album's due later this year!

No, I haven't heard it... yet! Is it on their singles album or something? Are they taking the micky?

you should check out there first album "good feeling" especially -
u16 girls
tied to the 90s
midsummer nights dreamin'

i got into it after hearing the man who and i really think its better than the more recent stuff.
For whoever asked, i think the hit me baby one more time cover was a b-side and not on the singles album.

I like Side, most of their others were quite good but didn't grab me as much as that.

i quite like a lot of their songs, some great lyrics, but weird videos

I like the re-offender video.. its cool and makes sense and so does the beautiful occupation. I havent seen the other videos but im sure they make sense as usual

PS: CAN ANYONE PLAY THE SOLO FOR BEAUTIFUL OCCUPATION? I HAVE SEARCHED MANY SITES BUT IT WASENT THERE. :confused:

They're very boring/bland. Nothing to write home about imo.

Do you mean the first album (the one with Tied To The Nineties on) or the second album (The one with Writing To Reach You, Driftwood et al on)

The first is unremitting ****e, saw them live supporting Oasis touring it in 97 and it was bloody gargabe which put me off them for a long time.

I like a lot of The Man Who, although I find it hard to like Driftwood and Why Does It Always Rain On Me, I thought Turn was OK, Flowers In The Window is a brilliant lickle tune, Sing was OK, other than that I'm afraid I don't like them much at all.

Nothing there to really interest me. Very bland.

CD in the bin, time to move on methinks.....

Travis are a brilliant band surely one of the best uk band. They deserve a place in the top ten british bands beside the bands like coldplay,oasis and radiohead. The best songs from travis are certainly sing, re-offender, flowers in the window,side, love will come through and i like very much their carly simon's cover nobody does it better.

Listen travis and be optimists !!!

Yuk.

How can anyone like this band? I don't see the attraction at all.

What I think puts Travis above all the other semi-acoustic indie Oldplay-alikes is that they don't take themselves seriously - they cover things like Hit Me Baby One More Time, they really rock out on stage, and one of the best bits of Live 8 was them breaking down into Stayin' Alive during Side. I mean, come on, would Coldplay have done that?

Plus their songs are mostly really easy to play, it's normally open chords with a capo...

Also, did you know that David Gilmour couldn't work out how to play the guitar riff from Turn? Fran Healy said 'It must be too simple...'

I love Travis, had an obsession for them.

Travis broke my Buddy Holly obsession. Then other stuff broke the Travis obsession. Now I am a well-rounded functioning human being who can listen to more than one band/artist.

Wow.
