AS EVER, THE READERS ARE SMARTER THAN WE ARE: Aaron s writes:

Travis - did the NME really report that. Even the most cursory Travis-watcher (raises own hand in air) surely knows that the best track on The Man Who was 'Flashing Blue Light' (or maybe 'Blue Flashing Light'), the hidden track at the end devoted to the subject of.. domestic violence!

It's not like it was hidden under a bushel either - they played it at every sodding gig they did for about two years when pushing that album. NME, first with the news, yet again...

Maybe a less craven NME would have picked the band up on this. On the other hand, it's rather a New Labour sort of move on the part of Travis, isn't it - announcing a major new policy that they've actually launched one before? Every age gets the bands it deserves, I suppose. We await their next new direction - singing songs about how even the weather seems to have it in for them, perhaps as a punishment for teenage transgressions - with interest.
