  Travis (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Travis are a British alternative rock band from Glasgow, Scotland, comprising of Francis Healy, Dougie Payne, Andy Dunlop and Neil Primrose.
One of Britian's most popular and respected modern bands, Travis have twice been awarded British album of the year at the annual Brit awards, and are often credited as having paved the way for British rock bands such as Coldplay and Keane.
The band that would become Travis (initially called "Glass Onion") was formed by guitarist Andy Dunlop and drummer Neil Primrose while the former was a student at the Glasgow School of Art ("Glass Onion" is the name of a Beatles song written and sung by John Lennon).

Travis and band strip their friendly, folky style of rock down to the bare wood, flaunting catchy melodies, tight playing and backing vocals that make the choruses pop up like islands on a relief map.
At the song's conclusion, the object of Travis' desire shoots him down, eliciting the deathless line, "I guess that's why they call it a crush." "Here in LA" is a perfect choice of closing track, beautifully capturing the dusky, somber mood of sundown in the City of Angels.

 Invisible Band by Travis CD
Travis: Francis Healy, Douglas Payne, Andy Dunlop, Neil Primrose.
THE INVISIBLE BAND is considerably softer than the band's previous albums, pursuing the ballad as transcendent mode of expression, but the popcraft is just as winningly melodic, the guitars just as jangly and inviting, and Fran Healy's songs as subtly accessible as ever.
Travis still maintain a high level of musicianship on this third LP, especially in terms of melody and lyrics.

 The Invisible Band | music : ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Travis fans who might have lost sleep over what radical detours the Scottish quartet would take on the follow up to their 2000 breakthrough ''The Man Who'' can rest assured: The sound remains the same.
The band got a lot of guff from critics for copping Radiohead's trippy, lost in the clouds 'tude, but where Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke tends to veer off into heady abstraction, Travis frontman Francis Healy grounds his romantic odes in jangly, foursquare song structures that echo the band's Brit pop forebears Oasis and Blur.
So faithfully does ''The Invisible Band'' re-create ''The Man Who'''s gauzy vibe that a few tracks come close to sounding like retreads, particularly the opener ''Sing,'' which is almost a reprise of sorts to the previous record's kick starter, ''Writing to Reach You.'' But that in no way detracts from the album's tremulous beauty.

 Invisible Band by Travis CD
To be honest, most current bands of today's music don't really do anything for me in that the soul of inspiration and creativity seems to be lacking in a big way.
The Invisible Band is a terrific album, giving mixed emotions each time the track number changes, from evoked happiness listening to Flowers in the Window to a surprisingly welcome sadness while listening to The Humpty Dumpty Love Song.
Hopefully Travis continues to make albums like this in the future, they stand out from the crowd and they should be complemented for it.

 Chandler Travis Philharmonic Press page
Travis is gleefully unconcerned with such trivialities as trend and profit as he wades into deep musical waters to find continuity in pop peculiarity; on this album, he visits doo-wop, be-bop, madhouse folk and Beatlesque pop without so much as a conceptual twitch or glitch.
Travis is one of the music business' longest-running and most tenacious and talented optimists - keeping in mind that he refers to his musical endeavors as 'business' in only the loosest and most intentionally misleading of definitions, in that on the odd blue moon, he may actually make a few shekels for his efforts.
Travis, 51, is also a computer-stained wretch (he writes a column for the weekly The Cape Codder and occasional album reviews for the Boston Herald), and, like O'Connell, spent some of his formative years in Connecticut (Darien and Wilton, in between birth in New York and a move to New Jersey).

 Joni Mitchell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Her first songwriting credit to hit the charts, "Urge for Going," was a success for country singer George Hamilton IV and for folk singer Tom Rush; it also appeared many years later as a b-side by the Scottish band Travis.
Some argue this style of music was ahead of its time, citing the fact that numerous "jam bands" play today to the delight of college students both in similar style and often times with similar conviction.
Mitchell finished the tracks with a band featuring Pastorius, Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock and the resulting free-form, sometimes arhythmic music was daring and eclectic.

That Travis are the most simplistic of the post-Radiohead groups may not sound like the heartiest of compliments, but it undoubtedly accounts for their massive appeal.
The opening "Sing" sounds like, since their inception, all Travis have been missing is a banjo; the florid "Flowers in the Window" harks back to McCartney's finest Beatles compositions; and the synth-led "Humpty Dumpty Love Song" lays Travis's sentimental heart bare.
The Invisible Band is a record perfectly at home in a college dorm, a cabin in the middle of nowhere, or at your local department store.

 Hear/Say: America's College Music Magazine - Reviews - Albums - Travis: The Invisible Band   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The Invisible Band opens with the sauntering "Sing," where vocalist Fran Healy is met with glowing keyboards and ethereal acoustic guitar parts.
Similar in tone, with perhaps a slightly higher degree of energy, is the inspirational "Follow the Light," the closest song on the record to Travis' commercially successful "Why Does it Always Rain on Me?" "Flowers in the Window" is also an accessible track, a song of being madly in love and filled with joyous harmonies.
The biggest disappointment on The Invisible Band is the predictable lull at the end of the disc.

 Amazon.com: Good Feeling: Music: Travis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Travis is best known for being one of the most downbeat Britpop bands in existance, but their debut "Good Feeling" is Brit-rock -- happy rock, depressed rock, evenly divided between melancholy and joy.
For a beginner band they were remarkably polished -- the piano melodies are exquisite, and they do some remarkable things with crunchy guitar riffs and some reverbing basslines.
First I want to say that Travis is one of the best British bands ever, they have become popular in a lot of places and they deserve it.

While attending Clemson University, he and a few partners-in-crime started a band, wrote a few songs, bought a PA system, and began traveling all over the southeast (learning to play their instruments along the way).
After the move, Patrick and Travis began playing acoustic duo shows around town as a side-project to the TAB and Exactus.
Eventually, in late 2003, Patrick joined the band full-time on guitar and vocals and began contributing his own original songs to the band.
