Sonic Overload 1/18/16

2016 is off to a terrible start for losses in the music world. Following the passing of Lemmy, David Bowie and my old friend Filip Fuchs from See You In Hell, the past week has brought the deaths of Clarence “Blowfly” Reid, Dale “Buffin” Griffin from Mott the Hoople and I also just found out about the death of Glenn Frey from the Eagles. I’m not an Eagles fan and it’s highly unlikely you’ll hear one of their songs on here (I’ll admit I like “Victim Of Love”) but maybe I’ll play an Eagles cover version later this week if I can find a non-wretchworthy one.

Not much to add—I really don’t want to ponder my own mortality any more than I already have lately.  But who’d believe that Keith Richards would outlive all of ‘em?

Oh yes, Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I mark the occasion, as always, by playing a few segments of his speeches and an interview from the final year of his life, as well a few appropriate songs.

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.

Sonic Overload 1/4/16

The term “legend” is bandied about more than it should be but it applies to Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, who passed away last week at the age of 70, mere days after he’d reached that milestone. I’m not going to wax all that poetic about it because Lemmy probably would have just told me to knock it the fuck off. I did a more extensive tribute on last Wednesday’s Stench Radio show and I’ll hopefully get the archive up to date this week so you’ll be able to hear it soon. One set of Motörhead songs this week and a few other tracks from other bands that Lemmy played with.

Oh yeah, Happy  New Year...

It’s the end of a FUCKED UP year... damn, those words apply to this year more than any other in recent memory and I’m glad to see 2015 come to an end. An awful year personally and for friends and family although I can definitely see some light at the end of the tunnel and hope for a much better 2016. Anyway, here’s the best of the year, not in any particular order although a good amount of  my favorite stuff is towards the end of the show. And I’ll be playing more songs from the previous 12 months that I couldn’t fit on this show on the Wednesday show on Stench Radio, so make sure you check that out (you should check it out already, as it is!). So Happy New Year and I’ll see you on the other side...

In memory of Chelle LaBarge (1966-2015).

Sonic Overload 12/14/15

The last ‘regular’ recorded show of the year as both shows next week will have some holiday content. Not all of the shows, though. In fact, I might keep the holiday songs to a relative minimum on the Monday show. Truth be told, to quote the Dogmatics, it sure doesn’t feel like Christmas. No snow on the ground, relatively mild temperatures. Believe me, though, I’m not complaining. Not one bit...
