Sonic Overload 1/5/15

The first show of the new year—it feels strange to be writing out 2015. Hell, way back at the turn of the century (15 years now?), it was strange dating checks with a date starting with “20”... and that’s the year Sonic Overload started, in 2000. I’m still here and somehow still manage to crank out two radio shows a week. It keeps me out of trouble, I suppose.

Happy New Year!

Sonic Overload 12/29/14--The Best of 2014

When I say it’s end of a fucked-up year, to quote Embrace on one of the last songs played on this week’s show, I really mean it, this time. Still, no time to wallow. It was fun putting this show together. I look at it as the Sonic Overload All-Star game, in a way.

As I scan through the list, it’s a shame that some of the bands represented have broken up—Savageheads, Stoic Violence and Gas Rag, in particular, while Baja Blatz was described to me as a band with an “expiration date” and they were only together a short time this year.

On to 2015... another musical adventure awaits and hopefully the non-musical part of it won’t be so bumpy. Happy New Year!
