­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.

      A happy memory inspired this week’s show. 35 years ago this week, I went to my first two shows in Western Mass. I saw Crucifix with five other bands at the Guiding Star Grange in Greenfield and then, a bit under a week later, I saw the Rock Against Reagan show, again with Crucifix, plus MDC, The Dicks and DRI (the latter two bands were still based in Texas) at UMass. Two mind-opening excursions and part of the soundtrack was a tape I’d made of Minor Threat’s Out of Step album. All of that is reflected in this week’s playlist. Not to get all weepy (who, me?) but it was life-changing. I still get plenty out of going to see shows but, of course, nothing will ever come close to those experiences.
