** IF ANYONE CAN...DINGUS KHAN **
** WHIPLASHING ESSEX OCTET HEADLINE LONDON BORDERLINE ON APRIL 18TH **
** SUPPORT FROM BAD FOR LAZARUS + THE DIAMOND NOISE **

Everyone's very favourite sixteen-legged rock'n'roll dream machine DINGUS KHAN are goading their lions for a return to the national airwaves and the long and grinding road. Live favourite and abstract shoutalong anthem Knifey Spoony is released by fierce panda as a digital single on April 29th 2013. The Essex eightpiece will also be reissuing their none-more-mental debut album 'Support Mistley Swans' in deluxe digital format on May 6th. Not only that, but the imminent Return Of Dingus Khan Tour sees them revisit some of their happiest hunting grounds, including London Town, like this:

DINGUS KHAN are from Manningtree in Essex. They first released the 'Knifey Spoony' single on Label Fandango in March 2012, which was instantly picked up by Colchester United fan Steve Lamacq. That debut 7" triggered a blitzkrieg of activity as the band appeared at Bestival, Latitude and Reading / Leeds Festivals, released another two singles ('Made A List' and 'Plank'), and generally gave the impression they were having a barrel of laughs falling off the end of Harwich Pier with a live show which featured three drummers and three bassists and was one part punk spirit, two parts prog skill and several parts anarchic chaos. As you may or may not expect from a band described as a cross between Blur and Frank Zappas Mothers Of Invention.

BAD FOR LAZARUS are from Brighton and describe themselves as "A force of sonic nature relying on nothing but five hip-shaking bodies to raze minds to the ground." Bonding together over their love of roadside services, small vans and the assured destruction of every onstage monitor and mic stand in the country, they go on to say "We like Motown and we like Richard Hell - so we sound like Motown Hell..."

THE DIAMOND NOISE are four heartily hectic roustabouts based in London who play stadium-sized riffs first and ask pertinent pop questions later. Distilling the "glam, showy and sharp" connotations of their name into sub-three minute chunks of show-off rock, the beast that lies within this quartet howls at the spirit of The Hives, QOTSA and similarly well-turned out rucking heroes.
