Biography

SUSIE HUG - BIOGRAPHY

The Travis messageboard is a busy place. Fans share gossip they’ve heard about the band’s new, or last, records; discuss the advisability of in-studio webcams; compare lists of Top Ten shows; rubbish rumours, start new ones, laugh at this or that haircut or style faux-pas.

Very often, they talk about songs. Which ones are best live, are easiest to sing when you’re drunk, make you cry/smile/sick. Which of the umpteen songs that have poured from (usually) Fran Healy is the best overlooked gem. Here we’re talking b-sides - the place where good bands put interesting covers, or new versions of old songs, or stray numbers that there just wasn’t room for on the album.

Two songs crop up a lot: ‘Unbelievers’, which was on the single ‘Happy’, and ‘Reason’, which was on CD2 of ‘More Than Us’. Travis fans love those songs. They’re magic. But Travis didn’t write them. Susie Hug did. And now they’re coming out in their own right, on her album. About bloody time.

Susie Hug is a Japanese-American, born in Tokyo, raised in San Diego, who has lived in the UK for quite a while. She used to be in a band called the Katydids, who released two albums on Warners in the early Nineties. Back then she also wrote and played with The Blue Aeroplanes and Mighty Lemon Drops.
