• The complete Dougie's Diaries

    Hello all,

    This is a repost for those that missed it earlier in the year of the complete Dougie's Diaries, written by Dougie Payne, the bass player of the band Travis during the recording sessions of their new album, The Boy With No Name. Parts 1 - 14 are from the session in November 2005, and parts 15 - 25 are from the last album session in March 2006.

    I thought this might make an interesting read to look back on.

    Enjoy reading DOUGIE'S DIARIES!

    March arrives and, despite all meteorological evidence to the contrary , in my mind it heralds the start of spring. Thus I find myself dressed almost completely inappropriately for the Baltic conditions as I head into the studio. My stripey scarf is my only saviour.
