­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.


Recent shows can be downloaded from the archive at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

MARCH 20, 2023


20 years ago today (hard to believe), former president George W. Bush started a war with Iraq—a war built on a lie that the country had weapons of mass destruction. Something that turned out to be bullshit. A war that lasted 8 years, in spite of Bush claiming victory (“Mission Accomplished”). I sometimes need to remind people who ever engage in the whole “well, he wasn’t THAT bad” trope, when comparing him to the Orange Turd who defiled the White House from 2017 to 2021. Bush was definitely that awful. So was Reagan and so was George H.W. Bush. Since it’s been 20 years, make sure to read the history of the war. I have a feeling attempts will be made to to whitewash what really happened, given the hostility towards teaching real history.
