Sonic Overload 12/15/14

The end of the year is in sight—next week, I’ll be playing some holiday music on Monday but the bulk will on Christmas Eve on Stench Radio... and the week after that, it’ll be the Best of 2014. As of now, I don’t really feel as though I have a definitive album of the year but there’s no shortage of quality music to play. In the meantime, this week’s show features a fair amount of new material plus some lesser-played gems that haven’t been on here for awhile. Enjoy!

Sonic Overload 12/8/14

Another week, another cop gets away with murder—this time, it was Daniel Pantaleo, a white police officer in Staten Island whose chokehold caused the heart attack death of a black man, Eric Garner ON VIDEO and a grand jury decided against indicting him. Incidentally, I got his first name wrong—it’s not Joseph or Anthony, it’s Daniel. Truth be told, he doesn’t the courtesy of having his first name used. I didn’t have time to grab some audio about the latest miscarriage of justice. It’s heartening to see widespread demonstrating all over the country, especially in NYC where protesters shut down the Brooklyn Bridge. I’m not sure it’ll accomplish anything but people need to wake up and stop letting this happen.

I just found out before recording this week’s show that Brian Goble (aka Wimpy Roy) from the Subhumans and DOA passed away over the weekend from a heart attack. He was only 57. He’s the second member of DOA to pass away this year—Dave Gregg died in March. Tribute is paid to Brian, as well as Ian MacLagan from the Faces and Small Faces, who died last week at 67. R.I.P.

Sonic Overload 12/1/14

I was dealing with some computer issues so I didn’t have the opportunity to put together some sound or mention anything about the (not-so) grand jury decision in Missouri this past week, where Officer Darren Wilson wasn’t indicted in the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson. A total miscarriage of justice—Wilson, in my opinion (and the opinion of many others) got away with murder. I covered it on last Wednesday’s Stench Radio show, which should be posted on the archive in the not-too-distant future. One hopes that Wilson will eventually be brought to some sort of justice, perhaps through a civil action, although I’m not all that optimistic about that happening. In the meantime, he’s going to cash in quite well on his “fame,” with his supporters raising over half a million dollars plus his purported $500,000 appearance fee on ABC. What a pathetic situation...

Only two more “regular” shows this year, until I get into the holiday and best-of shows at the end of the month...

Sonic Overload 11/24/14

It’s the last Monday of November (already!) and time for the annual all-covers show. I’ve got a good mix of songs that haven’t been played in the past along with some that I have to play almost every year. Any band can cover a song but it takes something extra to make it memorable. I try to stay away from covers that are a carbon copy of the original. Even if there are similarities, if it’s played with a kick-ass, go-for-broke intensity, it’s worth hearing. And there are always songs that are more obscure and not covered by multiple bands. I even snuck in a few requests this year.

Enjoy! Back to our regularly scheduled programming next week (as well as on Stench Radio this week)...

PS... after posting, I found out that the Devoid of Faith song is an original, not a cover. Oops! Still a kick-ass song...

Sonic Overload 11/10/14

It’s almost a week after the elections, with the Republicans taking over the Senate and expanding their majority in the House. I covered it pretty well on the Stench Radio show last week but touch on it briefly this week. One thing I did forget to mention was Obama’s plan to send more troops to Iraq. Wonderful... soon, there will be even more veterans to honor on Veterans Day. I’m not saying that to disparage any veterans but just point out that it’s a shame this has to continue. And one hopes that the Republican-controlled Congress won’t turn their backs on the veterans by cutting programs that assist them... or cut any other valuable social programs for that matter but we know how that’ll probably come out.

Enough... enjoy the show... which I begin with a tribute of sorts to the tearing down of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago this past weekend...

Sonic Overload 11/3/14

As I say at the top of the second segment, former Boston Mayor Tom Menino was one of a kind. He passed away last week at the age of 71, following a long battle with cancer. He kept up a busy schedule until near the end of his life, going on a tour to promote his new book up until a few weeks before his passing. During his 20 year tenure as the city’s mayor (before stepping down last January), Boston continued to evolve as a world-class city.

Menino had his detractors, including the cruel, venal hack columnist Howie Carr, who tagged him with the nickname Mumbles Menino, due to his sometimes difficult to understand diction and frequent malapropisms.  I used to joke he could probably use subtitles—but that doesn’t mean I didn’t hold him in high regard. And despite some people’s impression of him as a buffoon-like character, Menino was sharp and always on top of his game—and he truly cared about the city, about the neighborhoods, about the people. He could have been mayor as long as he wanted but finally left office after his record-long term. The new Mayor, Marty Walsh, has some really big shoes to fill. R.I.P. Mr. Mayor...

Sonic Overload 10/20/14

Covering all the bases, as always, starting with some bile-filled old DC hardcore and ending with a nice bit of bouncy Anglo-French, socialist pop music. And all kinds of new and old stuff in between. Next week, I’ll be playing some Halloween music on both shows. And I’m not buying the candy until a day or two before because there might not be a lot left over for the kids who come by—even though a lot of them don’t deserve it. Just kidding—sort of.

Sonic Overload 10/6/14

So let’s see if I’ve got the latest items of right-wing paranoia straight—ISIS is sending illegal immigrants over the Mexican border infected with Ebola? I think that’s what I heard on Fox News in the past several days. I jest of course... but not all that much. Time to turn off the news and listen to some punk, complete with topical matter at the beginning.

This show goes out in memory of Paul Revere from the Raiders, who passed away over the weekend at the age of 76. The Raiders’ show “Where The Action Is” was one of my favorites. My father even made a reel-to-reel tape of me singing the theme song. Thankfully, that’s been lost to the winds of history although there’s a chance I still have that tape somewhere in the closet. Where it will stay...

Sonic Overload 9/29/14

Back to full-strength turntable wise—actually, I had two turntables up and running by last Wednesday’s show on Stench Radio. Another week of punk rock and I’m almost recovered from the GBH/Angry Samoans/Reagan Youth show. I haven’t been going to as many of the “punk rock oldies circuit” shows in recent years but I haven’t seen GBH and the Samoans since the 90s so I decided to go (and thanks for the ticket hookup, Clay, if you read this). I’d still rather go see the newer bands in DIY spaces but there’s nothing wrong with nostalgia every once in awhile as long as you realize there’s still good punk and hardcore worthy of your attention...
