Beth Ditto not just my hero

It’s always been apparent to Northwesterners how cool, Beth Ditto, the rock operatic diva of indie queercore sensations The Gossip is. But Ms. Ditto got big props from halfway across the world today when she landed UK magazine NME’s top spot on their annual Cool List. NME’s list purports to know all that rocks in Britain’s mad music scene so it’s especially exciting to see a local queerion beating out such names as Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Gnarls Barkley, and Panic! At The Disco.

Guess I’m not the only one who’s been lost for days, headphones keeping out the world, in the maniacally intense yet smooth beats of their latest album Standing in the Way of Control.

For a complete list of the winners visit Stereogum, because, I really don’t know where to pick up this rag on American shelves…
