Karmakops are on a solemn mission to put right everything they see as currently wrong with the music scene. Karmakops are a force majeure in the unsigned world right now. The band were picked up by Maineloft Management after their first gig. After their second, they'd become one of the most talked about bands at industry conference In The City. After their third, they'd supported Stereophonics, performing to 4,000 converts at Hull Arena. Blisteringly powerful pop rock tunes stuffed with more hooks than a fisherman's jacket, Karmakops' mix of classic retro rock vibes with balls-out 21st Century songwriting is seeing 2006 shaping up to be their year. Think The Who at their loudest, Bowie when he was young, cool and capable, Electric Six with songs.
