Despite never seeing them live, I just really love this band, on tv at various festivals they look absolutely rockin'. I love the way Beth Ditto just doesn't give a toss what she looks like. Their debut album is great and I've heard a coupla tracks from their new LP and it sounds cool.

Standing In The Way Of Control is easily up their with the best singles of all time in my humble opinion.

Got a feeling that they could be a 'marmite' type of band with most music fans !!

Agreed, The Gossip are amazing. They sound like no other band I've heard and Beth Ditto makes us BIG girls proud. She's also just amazing in general, she puts her all into a performance and has an amazing voice. Glad she's creating her own line at Evans, as well.

Yeah, saw that she was doing some clothes line with Kate Moss for the larger lady, not sure if it's Evans as stated above.

Some of the states that she comes offstage in are hilarious, clothes ripped, make up smeared all over her face, barely able to walk, LOVE it !! They are playing in Manchester on 29 May but I just can't afford it, bet it'll be a brilliant night at Club Academy.

Nice one Bluejayway. Very Happy

The Gossip aren't as well-known here as they seem to be in the UK, which is odd because they're from the US (it's Kings of Leon syndrome all over again!). But I do love Beth Ditto's voice and every interview I've read with her leaves me thinking how sharp and passionate she is. She's pure rock and roll, that girl!
