Sonic Overload 4/11/16

I realize that it’s not usually proper to speak ill of the dead and I’ll keep this brief but the opening song, Articles of Faith’s “I’ve Got Mine” goes out to Barbara Anderson, former head of the anti-tax group Citizens For Limited Taxation, who passed away a few days ago. CLT was behind Proposition 2 1/2 , a bill that holds property taxes in a community to 2 ½ % each year and doesn’t allow any increases over 2 ½ %. This usually leads to cuts in services—schools, police, etc, and the only way to raise funds is to put an override on the ballot. Anderson was essentially opposed to any sort of government assistance, even going so far as to say public libraries weren’t necessary. She was (as you probably guessed) inspired by Ayn Rand’s philosophy of selfishness. She also didn’t always express the most-enlightened attitudes towards immigration. She was a supporter of Cliven Bundy, the deadbeat rancher in Nevada. I can’t say I’ll miss her all that much. Unfortunately, CLT remains with us...

I’m going to Death Side in NYC next Sunday so I won’t be back in time to do a show. I’ll be back on the 25th.

Sonic Overload 4/4/16

It’s April 4 and it’s fucking snowing! Second time in two days, in fact. That’s after it hit 70 last week. That wacky New England weather. I’m not going to complain because it was a relatively mild winter. I wasn’t exactly feeling 100% while recording this show. Let’s just say getting to bed on a Sunday night/Monday morning at 1:30 AM, after a loud ‘n smoky punk show (at the Boiler Room in Boston, with Disguise and others) and then not being able to fall back to sleep after 6:30 might not be conducive to putting together a mind-bender of a show but I did my best. And, yes, I really did play and do like that Blood Sweat & Tears song. Deal with it.

Don’t forget I’ve moved the live show to Old FX Punk Radio and that’s at Wednesday nights from 9 to 11 PM eastern at
