Frank Turner, Craig Finn & more cover Frightened Rabbit; new mural in Glasgow
Tributes to the late Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison continue to pour in, and one of the latest is a new mural in Glasgow. It was painted by the artist Michael Corr, and though the mural was originally located near the Riverside Museum, it's being located to BAAD (Barras Courtyard) and will be accessible Tuesday (5/22). Corr writes:
UPDATE: Scott's piece is going to be moved later today (Monday) from the Riverside Museum as there is construction works just now and needs to be kept safe from damage. The piece will be transferred to BAAD (Barras Courtyard) and can be accessed as of tomorrow (Tuesday) from 12-10pm Tuesday-Sunday.
Just finished this mural near the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. After last week's news about Scott, I wanted to make something to pay tribute to him and @frabbits The piece will be on display for a week if you'd like to see. A massive thank you goes to @scottishstreetfoodfestival @bacardi and @artpistol for giving me the canvas! A special thanks to @nikkimcwilliams for those flawless squares (and the wee girl who helped paint Scott's shirt!)
Fellow musicians have also been covering Frightened Rabbit songs in Scott's memory. Last week, we posted Manchester Orchestra covering "My Backwards Walk" and we since came across a video of Frank Turner, who wrote a lengthy tribute the day Scott passed, covering "The Modern Leper" in London later that night. He prefaced the cover with a moving speech about Scott.
The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn did a melancholic, acoustic cover of "Head Rolls Off" at his show at NYC's Coney Island Baby the day after Scott passed, and Noah Gundersen did that same song during his opening set for Dashboard Confessional at Ryan Auditorium the day Scott passed. Watch all three below.
