Slash and Angry Birds Space have partnered to create the “SlashBird” character, a theme song performed by SLASH and a ringtone.

Espoo, Finland (March 11, 2013) -- After introducing his first two music apps last year, Grammy-winning, iconic guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Slash got a call from Rovio, the creator of the popular mobile game Angry Birds. A longtime fan of the game since it debuted, Slash and Angry Birds Space have partnered to create the “SlashBird” character, a theme song performed by SLASH and a ringtone.

“We're huge Slash fans, and Slash is a huge Angry Birds fan, so this was just an ideal match,” explains Philip Hickey Vice President, Marketing at Rovio. “It all happened very organically and was just a lot of fun on both sides. Our fans will love the track! Slash rocked the Angry Birds Space theme like only he could!"

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
