Last week on the episode “The Banker,” The Office closed with a large dose of Travis’ 2001 song “Sing.” It made me nostalgic for the band that I carried a torch for from 1999-2003, after which I think they sorta lost their way.
In late 2009 frontman Fran Healy and guitarist Andy Dunlop did a brief acoustic tour of the US and Canada. Truth be told, I missed the Chicago gig at Martyrs’ because I waited on tickets only to be surprised by how quickly it sold out.
Amazon is now selling an mp3 album of a bootlegged show from the tour and it is very much the VH1 Storytellers for Travis. If you dig Scottish accents this is right up your alley. Buy the album here http://bit.ly/atwXsn or grab a freebie song here http://bit.ly/c6SjkZ
