The follow-up to Mull Historical Society’s break-through debut album Loss was the band’s
acclaimed second album, Us. Upon release, Us landed in the UK Top 20 and included follow-up
song to Barcode Bypass, called The Supermarket Strikes Back, and the immense The Final Arrears
#19 single, dubbed ‘exactly 3 minutes of pop perfection’ by Mark Radcliffe. Once again MacIntyre
also took on production duties.
• When Colin MacIntyre’s debut Mull Historical Society single ‘Barcode Bypass’ (Rough Trade) was
named NME’s Debut Single of the Year in 2000, and then received its first daytime airplay (all 7
minutes of it) on Radio 1 on Jo Whiley’s show, it was clear a truly original song-writing talent had
emerged as if fully formed — and from the unlikely Atlantic outpost of the isle of Mull, in the
Scottish Hebrides (population of 2,500 people, 28,234 sheep).
• Named after a genuine society, dedicated to the preservation of tradition on the bands home
island, Mull sit somewhere in the valley between the Flaming Lips, Super Furry Animals and Beta
• Reissued for the first time since its original release, Us has been remastered by Phil Kinrade at
Alchemy Mastering and is presented here as a 2LP, gatefold sleeve to match the original.
