Standing In the Way of Control is a perfect album. Where's The Gossip love on these boards?

Three years of praying to GV has paid off.

The skinny dude sort of looks like a Randy side profile, ha.

Music For Men rocks my world in two. Barring a nasty conflict I'll certainly catch their set. They're perfect for Coachella. The crowd is going to be one massive dance party. Excellent get.

Though when I saw them in October I bumped into Beth before the show and asked her if they were playing to Coachella to which she responded, "She didn't think so." Either she's been caught in a web of lies and deceit or simply didn't know at the time. I'll choose to believe the latter.

I love Music For Men.
It would have had bigger buzz if they hadnt released it like morons.

They released it in England and then 5 months later in the US, thereby undermining any sales/release buzz they might have been able to ride.

Love em tho and they will DESTROY

I'm definitely looking forward to the Gossip. And in fact they're the band that finally lit a fire under my friends ass to come to Coachella this year

Sadly it would have a bigger buzz if Beth wasnt overweight and an outspoken dyke. (I don't agree with that but I feel that is the truth)

But Music For Men was one my favorite albums last year.

Pretty damn good live, I was not convinced but saw them play a festival in Sweden and Beth Ditto really belted it out live. She may be a big loud dyke but she can really sing.

well i meant politically outspoken. But I think she has one amazing set of pipes. I feel like I have been to church after listening to her.

yeah it is like church, especially when she sings "coal to diamonds."

it's one of the few bands where i'd honestly try to get rail.

Why do people keep calling them The Gossip? It's just Gossip.

Why do people keep calling them The Gossip? It's just Gossip.

because the people who have listened to the gossip for a while now know that only recently have they changed their name to Gossip.

Come on devoted music fan arent you supposed to know all? Or do you just read blogs to find what you like?

And didn't they just change it back from "Goxxip" too?

And didn't they just change it back from "Goxxip" too? Or was that just a phase?

i thought Goxxip was more of a fun way of spelling it but not official. I always spell Goxxip when I write about them.

Gossip vs Edward Sharpe ..... Damn!

Looking forward to this.

Should I start at Edward Sharpe and catch the end of Gossip? Other way around? I'm thinking Gossip could be more exciting toward the end of a set.

I'm having the same exact conflict. I think I'm going to watch Edward Sharpe from 5:10-5:40, and then make it down to the Mojave and watch Gossip from 5:40-6:30.

FIVE MORE DAYS!!!!

Beth Ditto fucking killed it today; ended with pulling LCD Soundsystem, some guy, some lady, and some other guy dressed as Spongebob Squarepants on stage to do some cover. She fucking owned that stage. Best set I saw today, hands down.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!!
The final song was a cover of "pull up to the bumper" by Grace Jones

If anything could have made my Coachella this set was it!!!
Gossip KILLED IT!

Love Love Love the Gossip. Ive been coming to Coachella since 2006 and have been hoping that they would be on the line-up since then, and it never happened time and time again... Until this Year!!!

So I was expecting to be blown away, having put out two equally amazing albums: Standing In The Way Of Controll (2006) Music For Men (2009).

Their Set was AMAZING!!! Beth has sooo much energy! Such an amazing voice... Such an amazing band!!! This was one of the most amazing Coachella performances Ive seen this year... Probably in all of the 5 years I've been attending!

Gossip was MAD AWESOME. To those who criticize Beth for being an "overweight outspoken dyke", you are totally missing the point, and what makes Beth such a hero in the "alternative" community, but I digress. She is an incredible performer with an amazing voice and I LOVE THIS BAND. I fucking *died* during the awesomeness that was the Grace Jones cover!!! TOO PERFECT. I was just sad that James Murphy (LCD) dropped the ball when she tried to get him to sing a verse!

I missed the first two Gossip songs because I was watching Edward Sharpe but I loved Gossip's set. It was my 4th favorite set of Saturday.

We went to go eat and then came back the song right before "Standing in the Way of Control." We were at the back of the tent and everyone was just dancing and having a grand ole time. It was SO much fun. Bring them back, put them on the outdoor at night, give us another party.
