Gossip: Live In Liverpool

It ain't over until the fat lady sings. After years of playing small clubs American punk trio Gossip became a huge success in 2007, especially in the UK where singer Beth Ditto made the cover of quite a few fashionable music magazines. They played the big festivals and recorded a live album in Liverpool on July 9. They pressed 4000 copies to sell during the Australian tour, making it an instant collector's item. Now the rest of the world can get their hands on the reissue that comes with a DVD of the show as a bonus.

Gossip: Live In Liverpool

Gossip is a loud trio with singer Beth Ditto sounding like Siouxsie in a foul mood who wants to bring the house down. For the audience it feels like they have invited to a really good party. The songs are short and fast with an usual choice of covers thrown in, including Careless Whisper that sounds a lot cooler than the original.

Live In Liverpool is released on Columbia Records. Release date: April 15
