Mull Historical Society is Colin MacIntyre (b. 8 April 1971), a Scottish singer, song-writer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and (as yet) unpublished author. Mull is an island off the west coast of Scotland. The name comes from an actual genealogical society on the island (who have since changed their name to the Mull Historical and Archaeological Society).

Mull Historical Society use a lot of unusual techniques and instruments. For example, Colin is credited to have played 'Seagulls' and 'Fire Extinguisher' for the song 'Gravity', and played 'Beer Kegs' on the song 'Death of a Scientist', which was written about the late Dr David Kelly. Also, Colin frequently samples the sounds of the world around him into his songs. For example, an public annoncement from the Glasgow Subway in 'Public Service Announcer' and the end of 'Final Arrears' features part of the shipping forecast.

A staple of Colin's tours and album art—which is itself usually very diverse, featuring everything from arty shots to plain landscapes and usually has MS Paint drawings by Colin himself—is 'The Giant Dog With The Wig', an oversize model of a dog with a large comedy blue wig on. The dog has become such a symbol of Colin’s music that in the video for 'How 'Bout I Love You More', Colin's 'spaceship' is the dog itself.
