That's Not What I Heard by Gossip
Released: Nov 2000
Label: Kill Rock Stars
We could write this whole review about one track: With its sultry, sinister strut and gospel of going down, "Swing Low" perfectly embodies the thick, sexy slice of garage rock The Gossip was serving back when it was still "The." But there's plenty more to discuss on their fierce debut, like Brace Paine's down 'n' dirty guitar; the chugga-chugga, hubba-hubba "Southern Comfort"; the Arkansassy heat that drips off every cut; and Beth Ditto's insatiable caterwaul. Sure, the tempo veers off-course at times and the mix is very lo-fi. But this is punk, y'all, Southern-fried and queer as hell.
