Now, if ‘Re-Offender’ was by a Scottish band with a bit of balls, it’d go, ‘Yer luk at me likat agayin, en I’ll smack yi inta next weak.’ As it is, Travis’ comeback single, about the ever-popular topic of ‘domestic violence’, is a familiar burst of Capital Radio candy rock glazed with their new found love of keyboards.
Let’s face it, Travis have never sought the outer-reaches of rawk and roll, but their life enriching beauty has a humble nicety about it which continues to wipe the floor with all their drab, smug little contemporaries. Once a Travis song’s in your head, the only way to get rid of it is to whack it out. This then, being as catchy as anything they've done, is hardly a great way to prevent wife smackery, is it?
