Biography

Melbourne, Australia

International Karate are a mostly instrumental band from Melbourne, Australia.

It’s 2006 and International Karate have completed their new album. More of What We’ve Heard Before Than We’ve Ever Heard Before is here, finally. After the somewhat lukewarm reception of their second album, 2004’s A Monster In Soul (we hope you’re refreshed by the honesty of this bio), they had a little bit of a rethink and have come up with a scorching new album.

More of What We’ve Heard Before Than We’ve Ever Heard Before is the sound of IK moving on, trimming songs down to more easily digestible lengths but still keeping to the essence of what they’re about. Except now there’s quite a bit of singing, as usual Dan Brownrigg appears and so does the wonderful Laura Jean. But now [da-daa] a member of IK has a crack at singing. Yes, Andrew Polydorou sings on a bunch o’ traxx in all his triple tracked glory. Feel free to congratulate him via email. I think Aaron is can be found whispering on a song, if you can spot it you will win a warm congratulatory email direct from the band.

The album was recorded over many dates through 2005-2006 by Dan Brownrigg himself at his own home studio with a little help form Ben Hurt at Newmarket on a couple of tunes. This time IK managed to increase the tape width to two-inch tape thereby increasing the ‘warmth,’ which seems to have an alarmingly direct correlation to the ‘cost’.
