Kiss and Tell?

Music This interview with Marie Andersson, lead singer of the Sahara Hotnights includies some pithy comments about how rock bands can be handstrung by gender perception:
"There was a time when we were really, really pissed off because people kept writing about us being girls. But after a while you see that it doesn?t matter how much you talk about it or try to prove that you?re not just a girl band. It just gives them something to write about. It kind of makes it worse to talk about it yourself actually."
I'll be interested to hear what their new material sounds like -- I've a couple of their older albums and they have a kind of post-punk sound which is difficult but not impossible to listen to.
