­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.

      I mentioned Record Store Day a few times during the show… I have mixed feelings. It’s become contrived and labels glut the market with unnecessary reissues or limited editions that people buy to flip online. I did go to one store—Residency Records in Salem—as well as doing a mailorder with Sorry State, including one of the RSD releases, Wasted Youth’s “Reagan’s In,” which I need a new copy of. But, as the saying goes, every day is record day, not just a few contrived days a year. And if it helps those smaller stores get people through the doors, that’s fine, as well.
