This week’s Gonzo – Alexa chats with Katy B, Foo Fighters and Everything Everything

By on Friday, 25th March 2011 at 11:00 am

This week’s episode of MTV Gonzo is filled with bands currently on everyone’s lips. Dubstep queen Katy B has a chinwag with Alexa that can only be described as rather intimate. She talks about dancing naked and confides “‘Tinie Tempah gives a good hug!” The life of rock stars, eh? Foo Fighters have an exclusive appearance on Gonzo, no doubt to talk about their new song ‘Rope’ and the new album that is soon to follow, ‘Wasting Light’. Via the technological wonder that is Skype, Everything Everything checks in on the road, giving their heartiest “guten Tag!” on the road in Munich.

For the weekly Director’s Cut feature, My Chemical Romance takes you behind the scenes of filming their classic video for ‘Welcome to the Black Parade’. It’s a must-see for diehard MCR fans. For a laugh, the always dapper and always nattily-dressed Hurts play the ‘Would You Rather…?’ game. For more laughs, Alexa tries her hand…er…voice at karaoke and we’ve been told it’s a bit painful. But it’s all saved by Midwest American band Cage the Elephant (pictured above on the famous couch) performing the single ‘Shake Me Down’ from their new album, ‘Thank You Happy Birthday’ (released in the UK on Monday). It all happens tonight on MTV Gonzo.

MTV Gonzo airs tonight (Friday) at 7 PM on MTV Music, with a repeat at 8 PM on MTV Rocks.

Kentucky band Cage the Elephant will be releasing their second album, ‘Thank You Happy Birthday, on 21 February in the UK. And in advance of its availability, have offered up this video for ‘Shake Me Down’. It’s a lot heavier than previous efforts like ‘Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked’. Heavier in the sense of…it’s sad. Maybe the kids from Bowling Green have grown up.
