Is it just me, or have they been rubbish since day one?
Beth Ditto as a welcome media figure aside, I mean.
about 6 years back was a Gossip live album.
It was blisteringly loud, raw and against what so many other bands were doing.
I'm sick of hearing most of that last record through sheer repetition, but from what I heard of them beforehand they were - and possibly still are - a good band.
Just not really my cup of tea these days, that's all...
They toured that last album to it's bitter end, got so sick of it but I do still like them.
I don't think they're really suited to be a chart act, because if you strip down their songs musically, they're pretty limited. But go and see them do "Don't Make Waves" in in a small sweaty room (if that's still possible?) and the point becomes more apparent.
they were pretty great before the rather stale breakthrough record.
but from my limited knowledge they only seem to have one song with different titles
on the neverending tour for Standing In The Way Of Control I saw them in Birmingham, in like, late 2005 or early 2006, then ATP 2006, chatted to Beth after both shows, really nice, then, like Leeds 2007 and it was cocking awful, just all this really cheesy be yourself guff, didn't think the songs especially stood up to enormity either.
should have been triumphant but it was really poor.
I did see a man crowdsurf in an inflatable boat during their set though so it wasn't a complete washout.
She never seems to come across that well in interviews to me.
I did dig "Control", but not really much else. And to be honest, I gotta tell ya, I think I wanna see her in the raw. I know, I know, but I think I just do...
They're performing on T4 this Sunday. I didn't like their first single that everyone went crazy abotu but I think they've got lots better!
