Sonic Overload 10/6/14

So let’s see if I’ve got the latest items of right-wing paranoia straight—ISIS is sending illegal immigrants over the Mexican border infected with Ebola? I think that’s what I heard on Fox News in the past several days. I jest of course... but not all that much. Time to turn off the news and listen to some punk, complete with topical matter at the beginning.

This show goes out in memory of Paul Revere from the Raiders, who passed away over the weekend at the age of 76. The Raiders’ show “Where The Action Is” was one of my favorites. My father even made a reel-to-reel tape of me singing the theme song. Thankfully, that’s been lost to the winds of history although there’s a chance I still have that tape somewhere in the closet. Where it will stay...

Sonic Overload 9/29/14

Back to full-strength turntable wise—actually, I had two turntables up and running by last Wednesday’s show on Stench Radio. Another week of punk rock and I’m almost recovered from the GBH/Angry Samoans/Reagan Youth show. I haven’t been going to as many of the “punk rock oldies circuit” shows in recent years but I haven’t seen GBH and the Samoans since the 90s so I decided to go (and thanks for the ticket hookup, Clay, if you read this). I’d still rather go see the newer bands in DIY spaces but there’s nothing wrong with nostalgia every once in awhile as long as you realize there’s still good punk and hardcore worthy of your attention...
