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.

      I know every line to the closing song, “Break The Bank” by Toxic Reasons. That’s because I was working at a bank when it came out, living in a one-room studio in Lynn. I moved there 39 years ago today… I wouldn’t say my parents kicked me out but, after I left my first post-collegiate job in late 1982, they thought it was time I got on my own two feet, got a new job and an apartment. Which I did… as I said, at a fucking bank. My co-workers were OK, except that backstabbing asshole Sandy in the loan department… anyway, long story short, my punk attitude was coming through stronger and that song really hit home. I won’t say it inspired me to quit the bank, but doing that and ending up music retail was one of the smartest things I ever did. To your knees, Uncle Sam!
