I like Frightened Rabbit because they take the funniest of press shots of themselves in various stages of exhaustion. It’s a laissez faire approach that is to be commended; they don’t even let us know what their surnames are for god’s sake. They are two brothers from Glasgow called Scott and Grant who recorded a nice song 3 years ago and decided that maybe being in a band was the way to go. Since then another soul has joined them and together they made something called ‘Sing The Greys’. ‘Be Less Rude’ is the 5th track from that something and a tidy package it is too. Scott’s vocals sound like a cowering Robert Smith while the band do a good approximation of what Pavement were capable of as they entered one of their cohesive ‘Slanted & Enchanted’ sessions (with tuneful harmonica asides). Frightened Rabbit will probably be filthy rich some day; their tired natures will probably mean the gold will be hidden under their mattresses. KD
