The Mystery Jets – Biography
The Mystery Jets formed in the early ’90s when the group’s shock-headed frontman, Blaine Harrison, was only 12. The band was initially called the Mystery Jets, in honor of the Heathrow-bound jets that habitually roared over their native Eel Pie Island, but they changed their name when Blaine (who, again, was very young at the time) misspelled ‘misery.’
The group released their first full-length album, ‘Making Dens’, in 2006 and saw the band touring the world to much critical acclaim.
Their second album, ‘21’, was released on 679 in March 2008 with dance producer Erol Alkan at the helm. The album contained the hits Young Love and Two Doors down, it also saw the band move away from their prog roots to a more classic pop set of songs.
In January 2009 the Mystery Jets signed to Rough Trade. At the time co founder Geoff Travis spoke for us all here when he excitedly stated that, “The Mystery Jets are in my opinion the best British group since the Libertines and I have been wanting to work with them for a very long time, so I am delighted they have chosen to join the roster.” Being a band that grow from strength to strength with steady certainty, we can’t wait for their first Rough Trade release as it’ll no doubt become their best work to date.
