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.


All of the shows from January 2009 to the present are archived for download at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

NOVEMBER 10, 2017


      Plenty of nostalgia over the past week—seeing The Proletariat, Jerry’s Kids, The Pist and Straw Dogs over the course of a few nights, along with Ancient Filth, one of my favorite bands of recent vintage and there was definitely a mutual admiration society. There was also the release of my friend Mike Gitter’s xXx  book, an anthology of original material, along with newer interviews and I got to take part in a panel about DIY and also spend some time with Gitter and Kevin Seconds, who played a few acoustic shows. You get the old and new, as always here… songs from six different decades on this one, going as far back as 1964 to the present day.
