Having begun life as the bedroom recording project of the Scottish-born David Maclean and Northern Ireland-raised Vincent Neff, Django Django evolved into a band with the addition of synth-obsessed Scot Tommy Grace and Yorkshire-hailing bassist Jimmy Dixon, playing anywhere from small clubs to warehouse parties. The four initially met at Edinburgh College of Art, though didn’t properly get going until they had all relocated to London, where things quickly took off for Django Django following the release of a run of early singles and their highly-acclaimed debut LP.
Upon their arrival, as a band Django Django were clearly a unique proposition, mixing the US garage rock of The Monks with playful sonic voyaging of Beck, and adding a dash of the freewheeling, surrealistic humor of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.
Django Django will be coming to Neumos on April 23rd. Tickets can be found here.
