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.

      I don’t know if I posted this before here or elsewhere or just talked about it with someone but I played the Animals’ “It’s My Life” this week. I think it’s a song that has a decidedly punk attitude. They were ostensibly a bluesy/R&B/pop-rock band, before Eric Burdon put together a more psychedelic version of the band). “It’s My Life” expresses a timeless, universal theme—control over your own destiny and fuck anyone who tells you differently, although I suppose they express it in a slightly more measured tone. By the way, happy 80th birthday to Eric—a true legend.
