In an ironic twist, Arkansas rockers 'The Gossip' appear to have taken the phrase 'Secret Gig' a bit too literally, when not a single fan passed through the doors to see them perform at Manchester Academy last night.
Rumour has it that Beth Ditto's fingers were too fat to press the send for the Email confirming the show on the Gossip Fansite, and so no fans were informed of 'The Gossip on the street' event, although another reason put forward by some critics is that the Gossip are rubbish and have no fans anyway.
The show did have one recipient. Archie 'The Caretaker' Brooks watched the show, which lasted a mere 20 minutes after the band ran out material.
His thoughts on the night were:'Yes, she did take her top off, but thankfully, there were no fans here to be sick at the gruesome sight.'
