REM frontman Michael Stipe writes the names of all the places he visits on his sweat shirt - so he can keep track of his extensive travelling.

The AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE singer stencils each city in the world he has visited on a different top each year.

Examining this year's (04) sweat shirt, Stipe tells London's TIME OUT magazine, "It's my travel for 2004. I carry in my luggage and I write where I've been on the front.

"Here's Miami and Miami again, where we were finishing the record (AROUND The Sun)."
