Band page created in 2005.
Forming from the ashes of the criminally underlooked Mo-Ho-Bish-O-Pi, The International Karate Plus take the Pavement-Pixies-Dinosaur Jr influenced sound of the former band and twist it up into something special of their own.
They released an EP (Karate Kills), three seven inches (FLA Singles Club #1, Nexus in a Chain of Thought and Black Christmas) and an album (The International Delay) before their main vocalist Richard Arnold left the group leaving them a two-piece.
They proved they could continue without him by contributing a beguiling rendition of Grease for the Filthy Little Angels compilation Down to Grease on Holiday.
Live @ The Vine on Friday, 20th August 2004
