Sonic Overload 1/11/16

For the second week in a row, I pay tribute to a musical icon who has passed away. It took me awhile to begin to appreciate David Bowie’s music—that happened in the 80s, although I’d liked songs here and there and was blown away hearing “The Jean Genie” in 1972—or, more accurately, seeing this video of it on a syndicated show. I never dug that deeply into his catalog and so I play my favorites on the show today, with a few alternate takes of songs thrown in, plus some cover versions.

I also pay tribute to Filip Fuchs, who passed away from cancer last week. Filip was from the Czech Republic and had played in a number of bands over the years, including See You In Hell and Mrtva Budoucnost. He also ran a record label and had written a book on Czech hardcore and contributed to zines, including Maximum Rocknroll. I finally got to meet Filip in 2011 when See You In Hell made it to Boston. He has a big smile in every picture I took of him during their set and you could tell he was having the time of his life. I’m glad I had the chance to meet him in person. R.I.P.

Sorry this show is so late—life gets in the way, sometimes.
