With its 2 bar cowbell intro ‘Sex & Trainwrecks’ might have gone in a different direction but, true to form, it quickly becomes familiar Aldo Buzzi fare. The tune takes a melancholy theme and punctuates it rhythmically with a post-punk architecture and a Caribbean undertone. As regards the lyrics the listener asks who are the victims? The rule of ‘poetic license’ is applied heavily and as always in Aldo’s material there may not be any ‘straight line’ lyrical commentary – whereas one might associate the sound of a train wreck with a cacophony of screeching, crushing and twisting metal this track maintains a steady rhythmic 4/4 beat -train wrecks are probably not agreeable to rhythmic consonance.
The intertwining instrumental layering is familiar and against the cadence of the lyrics we are met with an Edgar Allen Poe-esque tapestry of the dead possibly dreaming and the question answers itself by asking if the dead still dream. It’s an interesting set-up of superpositions as our subjects appear (at least in the words) to be both dead and alive. Thus a moderately tempered tune has more depth than the main thematic material implies. This listener found it a little trancy and ‘retro’ – I hear ‘post punker’ ghosts responding and the outro of this tune is in lock-step with the very movement that gave it life. – Joezworld June 2019

The Muse is song #11 on the album, a song from inspiration, your inner muse. A song reminiscent from my early Genesis influences. The lyric’s brings you into mythology, although it sparks some conflict with your own muse and what inspires you. Nice celestial flowing music with a beautiful middle interlude. –
The premises of this song is about a dude that can’t find love and it becomes an emergency case of NO LOVE. The song first starts with him getting brought by ambulance to the hospital. Once there, the nurse and doctor does not know how to treat him. Later in the song he takes over talking about his love emergency. I have so many idea’s on this one to be a video in the near future.
It’s not too late to help my emergency to get play on spotify
Latin influences inspired this song accompanied by many different Latin percussion instruments. This song also features Kimo on acoustic Spanish style guitar and some electric guitar lead licks in a few spots of the song.
This song gets back to some of my roots back in the late 70″s early 80’s Punk, New Wave era. A little like Iggy Pop (but not exactly), I think you’ll here some of the early influences from Max’s Kansas City and Mudd club Days.
