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!
