First of all, these guys have been around for a while, so I cannot claim to be putting a new band your way. But if you haven't heard The Gossip before, and I was a Johnny-come-lately too, now you must!
From the US, based in Portland, Oregon, three-piece the Gossip remind me of The Bellrays, The Slits and The Rapture (especially circa Out Of The Races And Onto The Tracks). This track has just been re-released in the UK - go get it!
