Sonic Overload 12/8/14

Another week, another cop gets away with murder—this time, it was Daniel Pantaleo, a white police officer in Staten Island whose chokehold caused the heart attack death of a black man, Eric Garner ON VIDEO and a grand jury decided against indicting him. Incidentally, I got his first name wrong—it’s not Joseph or Anthony, it’s Daniel. Truth be told, he doesn’t the courtesy of having his first name used. I didn’t have time to grab some audio about the latest miscarriage of justice. It’s heartening to see widespread demonstrating all over the country, especially in NYC where protesters shut down the Brooklyn Bridge. I’m not sure it’ll accomplish anything but people need to wake up and stop letting this happen.

I just found out before recording this week’s show that Brian Goble (aka Wimpy Roy) from the Subhumans and DOA passed away over the weekend from a heart attack. He was only 57. He’s the second member of DOA to pass away this year—Dave Gregg died in March. Tribute is paid to Brian, as well as Ian MacLagan from the Faces and Small Faces, who died last week at 67. R.I.P.

Sonic Overload 12/1/14

I was dealing with some computer issues so I didn’t have the opportunity to put together some sound or mention anything about the (not-so) grand jury decision in Missouri this past week, where Officer Darren Wilson wasn’t indicted in the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson. A total miscarriage of justice—Wilson, in my opinion (and the opinion of many others) got away with murder. I covered it on last Wednesday’s Stench Radio show, which should be posted on the archive in the not-too-distant future. One hopes that Wilson will eventually be brought to some sort of justice, perhaps through a civil action, although I’m not all that optimistic about that happening. In the meantime, he’s going to cash in quite well on his “fame,” with his supporters raising over half a million dollars plus his purported $500,000 appearance fee on ABC. What a pathetic situation...

Only two more “regular” shows this year, until I get into the holiday and best-of shows at the end of the month...

Sonic Overload 11/24/14

It’s the last Monday of November (already!) and time for the annual all-covers show. I’ve got a good mix of songs that haven’t been played in the past along with some that I have to play almost every year. Any band can cover a song but it takes something extra to make it memorable. I try to stay away from covers that are a carbon copy of the original. Even if there are similarities, if it’s played with a kick-ass, go-for-broke intensity, it’s worth hearing. And there are always songs that are more obscure and not covered by multiple bands. I even snuck in a few requests this year.

Enjoy! Back to our regularly scheduled programming next week (as well as on Stench Radio this week)...

PS... after posting, I found out that the Devoid of Faith song is an original, not a cover. Oops! Still a kick-ass song...
