Have your say

After two successful years of gigging across the country, Dingus Khan say what they really want in the future is MORE.

The band, made up of guitarist Ben Brown, bass players Tom Armstrong and Adam Jones, drummer Gaz Burney and Ukele player Josh Court, have been busy- gracing the stages of Latutide, Leeds and Reading festivals as well as playing at venues all over the UK.

Ben said: “We’ve been kicking about since high school really but started gigging around 2012.

“I had moved into a place in Manningtree and was the first of my friends to get a place of my own.

“We used to set up all the guitars, drum kits amps in my living room.

“In hindsight it was probably pretty bad for the neighbours.”

Ben said it was hard to describe the band’s unique sound.

“It can go from acapella, singing off the mic, to a wall of noise and feedback in the blink of an eye.

“All our songs have a pop sensibility though - they can be pretty noisy but there are always melodies mixed in there.

“Nowadays for bands, especially with the internet and how quickly everything moves you can become a flash in the pan.

“You have to put the work in - play as much as you can and work as much as you can.

“We just want to play all the time, travelling round with your friends. We just want more.”

Dingus Khan are playing the Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds on April 5 as part of the Bury Fringe Festival and the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts in Stowmarket on April 11.
