Review-In Karate's decade of performing and recording they refined their sound to a streamlined rock hybrid that was hard to pin down, and they slowly but surely forged a unique sonic identity that was all their own. The band's beginnings in the early-90's Boston indie scene, their love for improvised music and classic rock, and their adherence to the DIY punk ethos of their youth made them freaks in any scene, defying classification with their strange fusion of punk, blues, jazz and rock. 595 shows after Karate first stepped on stage together, Geoff Farina, Jeff Goddard and Gavin McCarthy sadly ended their 12-year run in the summer of 2005.
