Travis: I Was Sitting in Bed, Just Crying
Ian Watson, Melody Maker, 5 April 2000
THE TRAVIS interview ritual is now, it seems, set in stone. You can ask whatever you want, whenever you want, but first you must bond. Drop your defences and throw out those arms: it's time for the Travis greeting hug. Hello, Fran, sparkly-eyed and confident. Howdy, Dougie, warm and gently sarcastic. Hi, Andy, calm and pensive. And wassup, Neil, the big man who looks like he wished they hadn't started this whole hugging business but goes along with it anyway.
