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 songwriting talent had emerged as if fully formed — and from the unlikely Atlantic outpost of the isle of Mull, in the Scottish Hebrides (pop 2,500 people, 28,234 sheep).  Then came MacIntyre’s Gold-selling seminal debut album, the self-produced ‘Loss’, widely hailed as one of the best British albums of that year, including making Q’s top albums poll. It has since been voted in the top Scottish albums of all time. His acclaimed follow-up album, ‘Us’, landed in the Top 20, which included a 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.
