Cast, Travis: Brixton Academy, London

Robin Bresnark, Melody Maker, 26 July 1997

ONE LONE balloon bobs over Brixton Academy's mad-for-it crowd. It flicks and twists its playful way across the room, through the strands of blue light shooting out from the stage and over to where we're standing. Then, inches from my face, for no reason whatsoever, it hangs, hovers and just... pops.

Bang. Gone. Over. Cast take to the stage.
