Thumbs up Travis

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?

Travis are awesome, and I think they would be pretty well known

I hope they come up with a new album soon. if not then,...meh, theyve had a good run.

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 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.

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