Sonic Overload, 3/28/16

This past weekend marked special anniversaries for a couple of albums in my collection, albums that are treasured by fans of each respective band –Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak,” which came out on March 26, 1976 and Slint’s “Spiderland,” released on March 27, 1991. 40 and 25 years respectively and I play them both on the show this week. “Jailbreak” was the first Lizzy album I got, after picking up the single of “The Boys Are Back In Town.” I got that on a shopping trip with my grandmother and the other album purchased that day was Blue Öyster Cult’s “On Your Feet Or On Your Knees.” The latter was kind of an odd choice for my first Cult album but it did whet my appetite to check out the back catalog.

As for Slint, the album didn’t really connect at the time and I ended up getting rid of it. Then, “Good Morning Captain” showed up on the soundtrack for the movie “Kids” and I was blown away. I revisited the album and, while it’s not 100% great (neither is “Jailbreak,” for that matter, it’s pretty groundbreaking stuff and  “Good Morning Captain” is one of the few songs that lives up to the hackneyed term “epic.”

Don’t forget I’ve moved the live show to Old FX Punk Radio and that’s at Wednesday nights from 9 to 11 PM eastern at
