Sonic Overload 4/26/10

Arizona has passed a draconian, racist bill meant to curb “illegal” immigration, signed by Governor Jan Brewer. It basically requires people to carry proof of US birth and criminalizes being an undocumented immigrant. If you don’t have your “papers” with you, you can be arrested even if you’re a “legal” resident. While I was typing up the playlist before recording the show, I was listening to an interview by radio host Thom Hartmann with investigative journalist Greg Palast, who claims that the passage of this bill may have been prompted by other motives. I mention the interview on the show (and there are a couple of audio clips also concerning the passage) but go to Palast’s site to read the story:

It wasn’t intentional but around half of the songs on this week’s show are by non-US bands from around the globe—the UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Italy, Spain and maybe I’m forgetting one or two. To use a hoary cliche, trying to break down the barriers... punk and hardcore remain an international phenomenon and after the passage of Arizona’s law, it just reinforces the desire to look beyond our own borders. It also reminds me that some overseas bands have had difficulty getting into the States to tour and this country is poorer for it...
