About this product

Bombay Bicycle Club present their astonishing debut album ?I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose? (recorded by long-term producer Jim Abbiss). I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose is a beautifully literate and ambitious debut. From the dizzying swoops and morning-after ruefulness of the LP?s opening song to the open-tuned, Appalachian folk feel of the record?s closing track, the album thrums with subtle invention and quiet emotional intensity. Fans of Bloc Party, Broken Social Scene and Bon Iver ? or any mildly sensitive soul with a fondness for ricocheting guitar chords ? will be utterly beguiled.

Jamie and Jack formed Bombay Bicycle Club after spending their early teens trying to sneak into 18+ gigs together. They were dissuaded at first by Jamie?s guitar- playing Dad, Neill MacColl (son of Ewan, sister of Kirsty), who once told Jack he should become a plumber rather than a musician if he ever wanted to make a decent living. Then Neill heard the astonishing cache of songs Jack had amassed in his bedroom with Garageband and a cheap guitar, and instantly changed his mind, offering to produce Bombay Bicycle Club?s first demos.
