MTV Gonzo this week: Plan B

 
By on Monday, 15th March 2010 at 4:00 pm
 

MTV Gonzo has been back for its new series for a couple of weeks now, but tomorrow’s episode is the one that I’m most excited about so far – Plan B. Not usually my cup of tea at all, but I will admit freely that I’ve fallen in love with the six tracks I’ve heard of his new album “The Defamation Of Strickland Banks”.

Plan B (or Ben Drew to his Mum) has gone all soulboy on us, having the sort of influences that you’d get from listening to daytime radio on Magic in the mid 90’s. Apparently in the interview he claims his new album is “like Glee with bollocks”, which sounds like just my sort of music, and an interview that should be funny. He’ll also be chatting to Zane Lowe on the brown couch and doing an acoustic performance of new single ‘She Said’ – watch the official video here (featuring Effy from Skins).

Joining Zane for the second dose of brown-love (get your mind out of the gutter!) will be Kids in Glass Houses from the Valleys of South Wales. The pop-punkers reveal which member of the band can be found on YouTube crowd surfing at a Glassjaw gig, and explain which song guitarist Iain wrote in his bedroom in his underpants.

Meanwhile, the Gonzo Report comes from youtube phenomenon Midnight Beast. Admittedly, when I saw that name I was like “errrr, who?!”, but it turns out they do the sort of well-honed parodies that you’d be stupid to not find funny. Watch this version of Ke$ha’s Tik Tok to get a feel for how great they’ll be.

You can catch this episode of Gonzo tomorrow, Tuesday 16th March 2010 at 10pm on MTV Rocks (formerly MTV 2), or find out more on Gonzo’s website and get involved on Gonzo’s Twitter.
