Sonic Overload 4/2/12

Time for some festive Easter music—all your springtime favorites. I took a week off from the political content. Truth be told, I don’t know where I’d begin with audio/song selections for the Trayvon Martin case in Florida. For those of you who didn’t hear about it (and I can’t see that being too large a number, at this point), Trayvon is the unarmed 17 year-old who was shot to death by a self-styled neighborhood watchman. No charges have been brought against the gunman and the whole thing smells like a big coverup. It once again exposes the racial divide that persists in this country.

I also made a dedication to Joel Olson, who passed away last week. He was an activist, zine editor (Hippycore and Profane Existence), college professor and punk rock drummer. I forgot to mention the latter when I played his band Pissed. I never met Joel but he leaves behind an impressive legacy and, no doubt, countless friends and supporters. R.I.P.
