Indie outfit Mystery Jets will be performing in The Speakeasy Bar, Queens Student Union, Belfast on November 02nd 2010.
Forming in the early 1990’s, when the group’s frontman Blaine Harrison was only 12, The Mystery Jets were initially called The Misery Jets, having been named in honour of the Heathrow-bound airplanes that roared over their native turf Eel Pie Island in Twickenham.

Essentially a family project, The Mystery Jets are made up of Blaine Harrison, who initially started out on drums, Blaine’s dad Henry Harrison on bass, who eventually switched to guitar and Blaine’s friend William Rees also on guitar.
Kai Fish joined the gang as the group’s new bassist and a drum machine as well as a local kid name Max was trialled on drums before Kapil Trevedi got the job behind the kit.

Changing their name after Blaine misspelled “misery”, The Mystery Jets were born (again) and their first full studio album ‘Making Dens’ followed in 2006.

To date the band have released three studio albums, with second album ‘Twenty One’ following in 2008 and latest offering ‘Serotonin’ arriving this year.

To support the release of their latest album ‘Serotonin’, Misery Jets – sorry MYSTERY Jets – see it’s easily done, will embark on a UK tour later this year, kicking off in Manchester on October 22nd. The tour also takes in a homecoming show at London’s Roundhouse venue.
