A.V. Undercover

Frightened Rabbit covers The Lemonheads

The Scottish band goes solo-acoustic and extra sad for "Confetti," a.k.a. the "kinda shoulda sorta" song.

About This Episode

We were excited when Frightened Rabbit agreed to stop by the A.V. Club office for an Undercover session, mostly because the Scottish band's recent Winter Of Mixed Drinks is one of the best albums of 2010. Covering The Wedding Present seemed like the obvious choice, but singer-guitarist Scott Hutchison threw us a curveball when he chose "Confetti," from The Lemonheads' classic 1992 album It's A Shame About Ray. While Evan Dando's original is a fairly sunny affair, Hutchison dropped some of that special Scottish sadness into his version. Then we all ate eggs in a conference room. True story!
