Travis may have discovered politics, and had a career-threatening moment when their drummer broke his neck in a swimming-pool accident, but 12 Memories still sounds as if it had the cuddliest of conceptions. Which it did: it was written, between bouts of Scrabble, during an evidently blissful sojourn on the Isle of Mull. The songs are consequently prettier than ever - surprisingly so on something called Peace the Fuck Out, one of three tracks inspired by the Iraqi war.
The Lifetime channel offers its first made-for-TV movie with this goofy mystery. Nancy Allen (RoboCop, Blow Out) stars as a woman who wakes up one morning in a nice suburban home containing a nice husband and a nice little girl. Problem is, she has no idea who they are. Allen has amnesia, and she spends the length of the movie trying to find out who she is and why a villain played by the beautiful but bland Vanity is trying to kill her.
