Fuck it fuck it fuck it.

The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums (Chinaski), Friday, 11 May 2018 06:06 (eleven months ago) Permalink

Never met Scott but was hard not to feel like you knew him through the lyrics. The first two albums were huge for me at some difficult points in my life but some lyrics from the last album and the Mastersystem record have actually hit harder over the last few days.

Really awful news for his family, friends and all loved ones. So sad for them.

God damnit.. So tragic.

They passed me by for many years, but have had cause to see them live twice in the last year and was really taken with them. Just awful news.

Don't know anything about this band, to be honest, but yet another young man ending his life this way is just terrible.

Yeah, I had never heard of them either, but this has been all over twitter the last few days and I had been hoping he'd turn up. Definitely sad for all the fans.

this has been doing the rounds on twitter

seeing this message scott hutchison personally wrote to a fan has broken me. for a man who’s words and music have brought so much light to people in need - this situation feels all the more crushing

glasgow being a small place, i used to see him around all the time when i lived in the west end and i know a bunch of people who knew him - just such a sad end for someone who clearly meant a lot to a lot of people

this is horrible

Police have confirmed it. Just so sad.

Very sad news. I hadn’t paid a lot of attention to them for a while, but The Midnight Organ Fight is a great album that I still come back to quite frequently.

Sings the Greys and The Midnight Organ Fight were huge to me during a difficult period of my life. I saw them five times during this period too (twice in tiny places, with no more than a handful of people). They were a humming constant, a little engine of optimism. Ach, it's such a fucking shame.

Depression is a fucking liar and a thief.

Rest In Peace, Scott.

Last month was the 10-year anniversary of The Midnight Organ Fight, and the band celebrated by touring the album in full to sold-out venues across the UK. Midnight’s closing song, Floating in the Forth, details Hutchison visualising taking his own life, before he triumphantly sings: “I think I’ll save suicide for another year.” At every live show, particularly during this last run of shows, this was a line unanimously and cathartically screamed back at him, signalling how supportive the lyric, song, album and man have been to so many. Given the aligning of circumstances, it’s tempting to desperately scramble for meaning or prescience in this, to derive some significance and symbolism from what has happened. But there is no tragic poetry in this death, only tragedy – and the loss of a wonderful songwriter and a better person.

what - as they say - the actual fuck

I think that's sincere. Limmy forsook his usual 'charity do' bit to say something straight-up sad as well

that is absolutely disgusting.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Monday, 14 May 2018 23:11 (eleven months ago) Permalink

ok i'm a big FRabbit fan, but what is so disgusting about it? there's a mild pang in the joke that the band's music could've helped him (also a reference to how it helped so many, imo), then the sincere one in the middle and the third one wouldn't be a bad thing, either.

what am i missing here? to me this reads like the staff at The Onion being about as close to sincere as it ever gets. (but i def could be missing something.)

I can't get my head around the intention. What's it doing on that site? why would you make an article that includes fictional opinions from people who don't exist about someone who committed suicide a few days ago? why would anyone make this?

The "irony" in joke #1 seems grotesque (and dumb); and joke #3 seems grotesquely trivializing. I'm not very familiar w/FR, just speaking as a bystander.

One day I'll make a top ten track list for the band for those who kind of dropped off after tmfo. To me this band hadn't fell off, aesthetically speaking.

four months pass...

"You're the shit and I'm knee deep in it" is still devastating

five months pass...

imagine being so brilliant that you can write a line like:

"I'd say she was his sister but she doesn't have his nose"

to communicate the distance between two people who are no longer in love

He was a master and that album is dripping with equally brilliant images. What a waste.

This went up recently; it's available for download too:
