This Week’s Gonzo – Graham Coxon, Magnetic Man, the Vaccines and more come by

This Friday’s new episode of MTV Gonzo promises to be a treat with some amazing guests. Graham Coxon, former (and perhaps continuing?) guitarist of seminal Britpop band Blur but now a solo artist in his own right, stops in for a visit with Alexa Chung, participating in an activity I’d never think of in a million years. The two personalities sketch each other!

Hot off the electronic scene, the talented chaps of dubstep act Magnetic Man also visit the Gonzo set. When confronted by the prospect of being up against Cliff Richard on the UK singles chart, band member Artwork proclaims, “Cliff Richard, I’ve got nothing against him I just want to beat him (in the charts)”. Not to be outdone, his bandmate Skream comments, “I just want to beat him up”. Yikes.

Recent blogosphere darlings the Vaccines come by to introduce themselves to the MTV-watching public. Judging from the hype surrounding their first single released this summer, ‘If You Wanna’, you’d be advised to keep an eye on this London quartet. If you’re looking for tips from your favourite stars, Gonzo has you covered as well. The Midnight Beast offer their unique point of view on boybands, and Kele Okereke recommends a new band. And if that weren’t enough, the show will also premiere a brand new promo video from My Chemical Romance. Whew!

Watch this week’s MTV Gonzo tomorrow night, Friday, at 7 pm on MTV Rocks, with a repeat at 9 pm on MTV.
