About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Beth Ditto, please leave the building



Hopefully, the musically inclined members of the blogosphere will agree with me when I say I'm pretty fed up of reading about Beth Ditto and her daily schedule; NME is one of the main culprits, and its hard to go one wee without seeing a double page spread about her featuring a nude photo shoot (of course! The one above is from NME) within those pages. Not to say I don't like The Gossip- Standing In The Way Of Control is one of my favourite songs, but I think Beth and the band needs to stay out of the limelight for a while and set about writing a second album. And therein lies the main issue I have with Beth Ditto- I think its really great that she doesn't care what people think, and I agree with many of the things she says, but she should make sure she has the tunes to back her up before making outlandish statements and sets up spats with the rest of the music world.

Despite all this she's obviously found a winning formula in terms of her character: the tabloids love anything to do with her: lets be honest, what's not to love about a 15 stone lesbian woman with a voice like that? Ditto has got her own column in The Guardian called 'What would Beth Ditto Do?' and was ranked #1 in the NME Cool List last year. So with all that in order, she's obviously a very popular and iconic lady... the only thing is that this busy schedule doesn't really allow her and the two remaining members of the The Gossip time to write new material.

If the band can produce an album chock-full of songs of equal quality, then they should be on a winner. The problem with their latest album was that they had one standout track, and the rest were fairly average or sub-standard. If you haven't heard any of the album, there are two songs below: the title track Standing In The Way Of Control and another good single called Listen Up! You can download both tracks from , or by clicking the individual links below.

    Standing in the Way of Control is not The Gossip's first album!! There are two full lengths (Movement and That's Not What I Heard) that came out before it, and a couple of EPs.

    Thanks; I don't know why I wrote that... i know for a fact that they've done a couple of albums which weren't as successful.
