3.0 goodSteech | December 6th 12

When I was younger, the quality of a band was directly proportionate to the quality of its name. If a band had a bad name, it was a safe bet it was a bad band (see: Limp Bizkit, Insane Clown Posse). Something has happened to throw the rule of thumb into the inverse. Now, the dumber a band's name is, the better the band probably is (see: Ringo Deathstarr, Dingus Khan).

It isn't easy to explain what Dingus Khan sounds like. Try to imagine something between McClusky and early Los Campesinos! and you'll get close. Dingus Khan starts with a base of uptempo britpop and throws in mathy time changes and spazzy gang shouted choruses. Don't let the words "mathy" or "spazzy" turn you off, though. Dingus Khan is somewhere between indie pop and punk rock, but it blends the better parts of each rather than struggles with the tropes of either.
