Scotland's Mull Historical Society is singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Colin MacIntyre. He arrived onto the British music scene in 2000. Although the name is confusing MHS has always been a pseudo name for the solo artist MacIntyre, who hails from the Hebridean island of Mull. At first signed to U.K. independent Tugboat, MacIntyre got to work on cranking out some of his extensive bank of backlogged songs. The warmly received Barcode Bypass single was released later in the year, named Debut Single of the Year by NME. The follow-up single, I Tried, was released the next March. Demonstrating the musician's bizarre sense of humor, the A-side's subject matter was described as "boy meets sheep." Animal Cannabus followed a few months later on Rough Trade, predating the full-length debut Loss, which was issued on Blanco y Negro in October. The next album, Us, was released in 2003. Having dropped the Mull Historical Society tag, MacIntyre's 3rd album, This is Hope was released on B-Unique Records in July 2004. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
