Travis

defined the post-Britpop UK indie scene with a series of hugely successful singles and albums. 1999's «The Man Who» (a UK No.1 hit) spawned the festival anthem «Why Does It Always Rain On Me?», a song sure to bring about grey clouds within seconds of the opening chords. Now operating on their own Red Telephone Box label, the band is still producing wonderful music.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
The Associates - Heart Of Glass
you come home from the club?
Brian Eno - Music For Airports
you run from the cops?
Primal Scream - Trainspotting

Perfect style off running away.

you destroy a hotel room?
Brian Eno - Music For Airports

For us to destroy a hotel room that is so unlikely! What difference would it have if we’d just gone mad? So what we would listen to would completely make no sense. For instance: «Music For Airports».

you are love sick?
Teenage Fanclub - Your Love Is The Place I Come From

That depends. If you’d just been dumped or if you’re just missing somebody. Cause that’s two different moods. For the second mood, we’d chose: «Your Love Is The Place I Come From». That was the first dance on Andy’s wedding. It was actually played by Teenage Fanclub live. They came and played at his wedding.

you make love?
The Ramones

Something very short! 

you walk the cat walk?
Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy
you jump out of a plane with a parachute?
AC/DC - Back In Black

If you’d jump out of a plane with a parachute you could probably hear anything over your own screaming. So it has to be something very loud by Slayer. Or maybe also «Back In Black».

you meet your parents?
The Oscar Peterson Trio

Jazz!

you wash the windows of a skyscraper?
The Hives - The Black And White Album
you smuggle diamonds?
Lalo Schifrin - Bullit Soundtrack
you sit in the subway?
Boards Of Canada - Music Has The Right To Children

Something calming. Something that relaxes. I need to calm down in the tube, when there’s so much hectic and fuss.

you wake up?
Teenage Fanclub - Ain't That Enough

Brilliant uplifting soul music.

you need to get work done?

Nothing. Can’t listen to anything when I need to do something. Music is too distracting!
