In 2010, I wrote an article on the legendary band ONO, and from there, I decided to interview travis himself on the radio. I ended up transcribing the interview and having it published in issue #50 of Roctober magazine. In agreement with Roctober, I am sharing an abridged version of the interview here. ONO have a new LP out called Diegesis.

go looking at the differences, these dance bars. Mothers, The Orchid Room, Twiggy's because there were all these rock 'n' roll people located in the area of the current Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame; the Allen Theater, WMMS-FM and all that. But there were all these dance bars that I liked because I wanted to dance. And rock 'n' roll people didn't dance, they sat about and said “Wow Man” but they didn't dance – I wanted to dance.
