Sonic Overload 9/16/13

It was a busy weekend—I flew out to Chicago to see Infest, Los Crudos, the Repos, Hard Skin and Fuck You Pay Me at a really cool indoor soccer facility called ChiTown Futbol. Infest were the real fucking deal so there was no other possible choice for the opening song this week and the other bands on the show are featured, as are some of the bands I saw last night (Sunday) at the Democracy Center. Ruidosa Inmundicia, from Austria, were also killer. Make sure you see them on their current US tour if they’re anywhere near you.

Sonic Overload 9/9/13

I didn’t mention the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the show today. I’ll be doing the remembrance on Wednesday’s show on Stench Radio, since it falls on the actual anniversary. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t weigh on my mind and this week’s shows (and every project I’m involved in) are dedicated to the memory of Jane Simpkin, who perished that day. And I suppose I could tie it to any pending military action in Syria and say that it’s a continuation of this country’s ill-advised military policy for several decades. Let’s hope common sense prevails for once.

Happy Labor Day! Actually, I’m not sure how happy it is for the employees of Liberty Mutual, some of whom are seeing their pensions and benefits cut while their former CEO walks away with millions and insane amounts of money were spent to remodel the executive suite. Or companies that are eliminating health insurance for spouses if they can get it at their own place of employment. Or the fast food workers who staged a one day strike for a livable wage. I imagine they might not feel so great on this day. So as people have their last BBQs or trip to the beach, remember that not everyone has the day off and not everyone is achieving the so-called American Dream...

Sonic Overload 8/26/13

I mentioned this on the show but I had to clear out the storage closet in my bathroom/laundry room because there was a problem with the washing machine and some water got in there. While pulling out the boxes, I took a look inside a heavy one that had the first three years of webcasts, beginning on August 25, 2003. Exactly ten years to the day! As some of you know, I did the show live on Allston-Brighton Free Radio until early 2005 but started uploading the show to subdomains generously provided, at first, by Adam Gandelman and then by Jim Burnham, until launching this site a few years ago. I listened for a bit and also looked at the playlist and some of those bands/songs are on the show today—Colera, Boskops, Strikers and Uncurbed, off the top of my head. Another thing I noticed is how much faster I used to talk back then and how my voice didn’t sound quite as raspy.

Anyway, this week includes a few songs for the returning college students. Next week, it’ll be the Labor Day show and I’ll be featuring an assortment of songs honoring working men and women...
