Noughties #55: Frightened Rabbit "Midnight Organ Fight" (Fat Cat, 2008)

Scotland has a great track record of producing stalwarts of the indie anthem, and Frightened Rabbit have been custodians of this set-piece for the last few years. In a genre that is more traditionally uplifting, if in a morosse fashion, Frightened Rabbit buck the trend on this album with simple but brilliantly cynical storytelling. "Jesus...is just a Spanish boy's name. How come one man get so much fame?" ("Heads Roll Off").
