#Repost@grabbit with @make_repost ・・・ I don’t really have the words to describe what this band mean to me both as musicians and as people. IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME is fucking stunning and a sentiment we can all see some hope in as we say it over to ourselves on a daily basis. Buy it, download it, stream it. Whatever you do make sure this album is in your life because without it you’re seriously missing out. G x

#Repost@michellemillarfisher with @make_repost ・・・ A beautiful photograph by the talented @ryanmcgovernephoto now in the collection of the @scottishnationalportrait gallery, a place I loved to visit, last visited with Scott, and is in Edinburgh, a city he used to love exploring with his gran. It’s not the same as having him here, but I’m glad there’s now another place where his wonderful memory will be preserved. Thanks to the brilliant deputy director Imogen Gibbon and her colleagues and acquisition committee who chose this work and oversaw the whole process. #tinychanges
Our awesome pal @gugaigalway got these lovely pins made from a session Scott did for the wonderful Strange Brew. Details on getting them below x • #Repost@gugaigalway with @make_repost ・・・ "I wish I could stay this way forever..." Back in April 2017, my friend Scott Hutchison from Frightened Rabbit came over to play a solo show for me. I always loved his art, so over many many oysters & Guinness, I asked him to draw the logo for the Strange Brew Summer Shindig. He played an amazing show, but I forgot about the logo until his drawing arrived in the post a month or so later. Such a beautiful design. I was getting the original framed, and thought it would be a shame not to share the design with people again, so after talking to Grant and Billy, I decided to turn it into an enamel badge which you can now buy. All the proceeds from this go to the Scott Hutchison Memorial Fund.
Thanks again, Scott. x

Last night we were part of a very special night to make #tinychanges to Scotland’s homelessness problem. Yes it was only one night and yes people had nice warm sleeping bags and yes most went home to a nice warm house but what a way to highlight the issue. We felt Scott’s presence in every word that was sung with us last night by the incredible folks who joined us on stage and in the whole bandstand. To all those who slept out we applaud you and encourage everyone not to forget those who will be doing the same again tonight and not through choice but because they have nowhere else to go. All our love FR x 📸 @euanrphoto x
