Way back when, Coldplay and Travis were neck-and-neck in the grand ol' sweepstakes of non-threatening pop bands that invaded from across the pond in the late '90s (sorry Starsailor, you lost). While The Man Who has aged far better than Parachutes, Coldplay won out in the end, relegating Travis to a band whose stateside popularity never quite equaled their overseas devotion. Now Travis frontman Fran Healy is testing the solo waters in preparation for his forthcoming first solo album. Wreckorder features his famous pals—most notably Neko Case and Paul McCartney—and the soft melodies you've come to expect from Healy. Who knows, perhaps in an alternate reality you might be watching Chris Martin solo tonight. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
