This Week’s Gonzo – Slash and Brooklyn’s Sleigh Bells stop in for a chat

On tonight’s episode of MTV Gonzo, Alexa welcomes a legendary rocker…and possible future legends. Slash, formerly of Guns ‘n’ Roses but now a successful solo artist in his own right, visits the Gonzo studio. We’re not sure what prompted the following quote – “it’s not about the lines I use on groupies, its the lines they have to use on me” – but this particular statement has certainly got me curious! Sleigh Bells, a noise pop duo from Brooklyn, New York, also make an appearance. No doubt you have heard their song ‘Infinity Guitars’ and been wowed by the instrumental cacophony. Judging by the blogosphere blowing up with nothing but kudos for this act, they very well could be on their way to becoming legendary. Continuing the electropop theme, London’s Is Tropical come in to introduce themselves.

The Drums, going on tour starting next Tuesday in London are featured in the Gonzo Video of the Week. And Oxford’s Foals give their commentary on a director’s cut of their new video for ‘Blue Blood’. Sounds like a good night to stay in and watch telly.

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