­SONIC  OVERLOAD

 

 

Welcome to the webpage for Sonic Overload. As my regular listeners know by now, I play punk, hardcore, garage and other loud music, although there are surprises from time to time as well as decidedly slanted commentary on the “issues of the day” and that’s also presented through song selections and audio clips.

 

Recent shows can be downloaded from the archive at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

SEPTEMBER 20, 2021

 

      Nirvana’s “Nevermind” came out 30 years ago this week… in fact, I saw them play the night before its release at Axis in Boston. A lot of people dismiss them out of hand because of their mainstream success. I probably don’t need to hear “Teen Spirit” again, but many of their songs kick ass and have a punk spirit (sorry). “Territorial Pissings” stacks up well against a good chunk of early 90s rock. Are they still in regular rotation. No… but my ears perk up when I hear that song, “Oh The Guilt,” “Aneurysm,” and a few others. I don’t care about labels. I just know what I like—loud music with plenty of attitude. I think that’s enough clichés for one paragraph…
