Description

Gallery on CD

The Gallery is the third release from the Venice trio, Devastating Karate. The new album displays the versatility of the band, with a consistent sense of humor. Devastating Karate kicks off The Gallery with psychedelic keyboards and Carl Sagen-esq narration, leading into the sci-fi themed "Crab Man," before track two displays the band's foot-stompin' rockabilly style with "Mashed Potatoes." Featuring an extensive guitar intro, the infectious "Don't Spit It Out" is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the metal-pop bands of the '80s, while the title-track switches gears to tell an epic ghost story showcasing the band's artistic songwriting skills. Also featuring eclectic cover material from Ween and Celine Dion, The Gallery is a unique and triumphant combination of art-punk, surf-rock and roots-country. Formed in the summer of 2005, Devastating Karate is fronted by guitarist Rat Ratliff with Zach Lewis on drums and Charles Pasarell playing bass. Described as "honky-tonk, punk-rock drinking music" (Eric and Robert, KXLU, Los Angeles), Devastating Karate released a self-titled album later that same year, followed by a Southwest tour in the spring of 2006. The 2007 release of their sophomore effort, Santa Monica Lawn Bowling Park (EP), was supported by two West Coast tours and regular performances in the Los Angeles area. Influenced by groups ranging from Wilco and Kings of Leon, to Devo, Fu Manchu and The Pixies, Devastating Karate's power, energy and sense of humor equip them with a "timeless quality that will probably transcend trends and fads" (Terrance Lam, GM, Downtown Records). Compared to The Supersuckers and classified as "Desert Americana Boogie" by Duncan Hudson (Music Director, KXCI, Tucson), Devastating Karate currently receives airplay in several markets including Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, Tucson, San Antonio, Dayton and Las Cruces.
