This week’s Gonzo – the Kills grace the Gonzo couch, and Jamie Woon wows

By on Friday, 1st April 2011 at 11:00 am

MTV Gonzo gets an interesting visit this week. Well, I’m saying this because we have been advised that “pleather meets leather” when the Kills (Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart) stop by for a chat with Alexa. Jamie has been quoted as saying “You never woosh back at Nick Cave“. Now, I dunno about you, but considering Nick Cave has been busy with Grinderman these days, inquiring minds want to know what spurred on that comment. Jamie Woon, the artiste that with his track ‘Night Air’ has been making fans swoon, plays a tune. (Haha, that rhymed!)

On the video front, Richard Ayoade (whose recent debut film directorial effort ‘Submarine’ has been getting rave reviews) talks us through the rest of his back catalogue in a very special Director’s Cut. Viewers will also get a sneak peek of a live unplugged performance by the woman who had been fending off the opposition on the UK album charts for weeks, Adele. The video of the week on this episode of Gonzo? My Chemical Romance’s brilliant new video for ‘Planetary (Go)’. It’s a good night to stay in.

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


This week’s Gonzo – it’s Comedy Week!

By on Friday, 18th March 2011 at 11:00 am

This week’s episode of MTV Gonzo is just a little, shall we say, different. It’s Comedy Week, which means the focus is on, yup, you guessed, the people that make us laugh. It starts out with Richard Ayoade (famous for his roles in ‘The IT Crowd’ and ‘The Mighty Boosh’) stopping by to talk to Alexa about his most recent work, the film ‘Submarine’, for which he not only directed but also wrote the screenplay for. (If anything, you’ve probably heard about this film via the soundtrack out this week that was written and performed by none other than Arctic Monkey Alex Turner.)

Ayoade may be difficult to interview but not as difficult as her next guest, Keith Lemon of ‘Celebrity Juice’ fame (pictured above). Remember the word ‘difficult’ when you consider Lemon’s comment of “I’d smash Alexa’s back doors in”. Oi. Like Graham Coxon on last autumn’s series, Alexa also tests Lemon’s drawing abilities. You’ll have to watch the show to find out if he’s a genius with a drawing pencil or not.

But Gonzo is still an MTV programme, and there’s plenty of music coverage. The video for Foo Fighters‘ ‘Rope’ gets an official airing. Jessie ‘Do It Like a Dude’ J sticks her hand into the scary Twitter Tombola and answers some terrifying questions.

On the Director’s Cut feature, TGTF favourites Two Door Cinema Club (just fresh off winning a Breaking Woodie at the mtvU Woodie Awards in Austin, Texas, Wednesday night) talk about their colourful video for ‘What You Know’. In case you haven’t heard, according to the band, it’s the only video CANADA has directed that has no nudity. But before I digress…the show will also feature a live appearance by the View, playing ‘Grace’ from their new album released this month, ‘Bread and Circuses’. Not your standard Gonzo, but it’s got a little bit of something for everyone. Check it out on telly tonight.

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