­SONIC OVERLOAD

 

 

Welcome to the webpage for Sonic Overload. As my regular listeners know by now, I play punk, hardcore, garage and other loud music, although there are surprises from time to time as well as decidedly slanted commentary on the “issues of the day” and that’s also presented through song selections and audio clips.

 

Listen to Sonic Overload live every Wednesday from 9 to 11 PM eastern on Old FX Punk Radio

 

All of the shows from January 2009 to the present are archived for download at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

JUNE 27, 2016

 

      I’m not an expert in geopolitics by any stretch of the imagination but, contrary to attempts to say the UK’s exit from the European Union was a matter of economics or wishing to gain control back over its own economy, the whole thing doesn’t pass the smell test. The majority of people voted in favor of “Brexit” for dubious reasons—if I was being less than charitable (who? me?), I’d say it had a hell of a lot to do with anti-immigrant sentiment, stoked by the far-right UKIP (UK Independence Party). And you wonder if the Vulgar Talking Yam running for President in this country is going to make proverbial hay with it. I don’t know but the economic effects have been swift and brutal. We’ll see what happens...

      And another tribute—this time in memory of Barker Gee, who lived in Boston for years and played in such bands as Witches With Dicks and Ringers and had also played in the Oakland band Neon Piss in recent years. He unexpectedly passed away last week. He was just 32. This year just keeps getting worse. R.I.P.

      Next week, it’s our annual 4th of July Salute To America blowout...
