Jamie T - Panic Prevention: Wikipedia Album Entry
Panic Prevention is the Mercury Prize nominated debut album by wimbledon-born singer-songwriter Jamie T, released in the United Kingdom on January 29, 2007. The album is so-called because of the panic attacks Jamie suffered as an adolescent. Most of the songs on the album deal with aspects of modern 'youth' culture in the UK, and as such has been strongly compared to the works of The Streets, Lily Allen and The Libertines. Three singles have been released from the album prior to its release: Sheila, If You Got The Money and Calm Down Dearest. As of December 2007, the album has sold over 159,400 copies in the UK. It also came 100th in a list of Top 100 Albums of 2007 in the UK.
