Who?
Mike Carter (bass/vocals) , Richard Arnold (guitar/vocals), Chris Sklavounos(drums/vocals)

From?
The North,The South and Wales (we reside and are based in Cardiff).

How did you get here?
Formed 2003/ released karate kills ep, which was very well received as was the Karate Kills tour/ split ep out now on 7" with The Favours/ currently recording debut album when not on the M4.

 

Describe your sound:
If J Mascis and Lou Barlow spawned three children and subsequently had them adopted by Renee and Renato, within 25 years they would have formed a band in Cardiff called The International Karate Plus. FACT.

Joyzine said:
"Lets hope bands like these will put end to the banal noise that NME lovers everywhere seem to be unable to get enough of right now."

Anyone you're looking forward to playing with?
Campag velocet

Something Special:
We have already experienced Fame, Mike has met Jules Holland, Richie's dad did the 'Golden Lay' egg adverts in the 80's and there's a good chance Chris is related to Zorba the Greek. Greatness is in our blood.

What to expect:
A lot of fun, a bit like Butlins on ketamine! our gigs are always clean so there is only a slim chance of contracting MRSA
