­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.

 

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

SEPTEMBER 17, 2018

 

      I was a bit late getting into Crime… not committing crimes, ‘ya nimrod, the band Crime—the self-described San Francisco’s First and Only Rock ‘n’ Roll band. They kind of eschewed the punk label although the look and attitude were certainly well-developed before the nascent punk scene got going. Their founder and vocalist Johnny Strike passed away from cancer last week at the age of 70. That means he was already well into his 20s when the band formed in 1976, so I imagine he and his bandmates might have been a bit amused at the youngsters adopting the punk “aesthetic.” Whatever the case, I finally caught on some years after the fact and eventually caught up with their raw, nasty and insolent rock concoction.
