A straightforward tune that might be
its own anthem asserting: “this is your moment”
and fortifying its message with a strong double-
tracked main vocal. There appears to be some
beat anomalies though one never knows if these
are intentionally placed or artifacts from a rebellious
effect plug or two.
The instrumental break is sparse and somewhat disembodied
and the lyrics perhaps a bit redundant. The sound is more
’neo-garage’ then it is ‘recording studio’ polished but allowances
should always be made as this is part of the ‘appeal’ of Buzzi’s
One wonders if the author was up against a deadline (self-imposed or otherwise)to complete it – There’s ‘more to this life’ than we are given here both thematically and stylistically. Perhaps the entertainment adage to ‘always leave the audience wanting more’ has been employed here with skilled hands (and ears) and for those die-hard fans of Buzzi’s music out there ‘This Is My Life’ might be the sonnet they’ve been waiting for. – JoeZworld
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
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.
Back in my punk days, this is a hard driving tune that keeps moving from beginning to end. Heavy guitar and a steady 4/4 drum beat with a short lead burst in the middle of the song. Well it’s cleaner then The Ramones but similar in it’s simplicity. It only take a little under 3 minutes from start to finish.
I think I have some aspirations to make a video, so keep checking back as I have some idea’s what to film and how it should look.

Here is another song out of 3 songs that I stumbled across through my Vinyl Flesh cassette archives. As said in the previous post, The quality of the tapes over time has lost some of there dynamic’s, these tapes were home studio tapes that was just thrown in a cassette recorder for our rehearsals, they were done through the home mixing board at home studio, and the quality is definitely not pro-studio quality. I must point out these songs were all written and performed sometime in the early 1980’s.
JoeZworld Commented on finding these tapes: Aldo your playing, the style, it was a major element rather than just a bass guitar player thing. I’d forgotten that we were as tight as these recordings show. Above all I can appreciate the ‘sound’ we created – kind of like we bridged the end of ‘new wave’ with ‘classic funk’ with a sprinkle of ‘punk’ and a dash of ‘jazz’ and a pinch of ‘rock’. Certainly there were many changes and bridges that were almost classical probably showing how we were influenced by ‘progressive rock’ bands like Gabriel, Yes, Crimson, but also Talking Heads, Elvis Costello, The Tubes.
Plink is an experimental instrumental song -specifically done to be for this stop motion video I put together. It was a spur of the moment idea of art and music coming together over the course of one evening. It took me a total of about 6 hours to create without a storyboard. Just a thought in my head and a recorded soundtrack to inspire creativity. All done on an Ipad, a string of pearls on the kitchen table with a green screen background.
Plink is a music blip in the universe created with stop motion video
My thoughts are with this project is to explore many genres and styles of music I have not done before. I like to experiment and I think a lot of my music is based on different styles.
You may disagree and I would welcome comments on what do you think? Is Aldo Music different in some ways or do I have a distinct style?
I’ve been recently listening to Sirius radio, “Little Stevens Underground Garage”. They have been playing a lot of older, but great stuff that you don’t hear on just about all of the regular radio channels.
I also like Latin beats and rhythms, I think i’ll add some of that in too. I want to bring in some different vocal styles and have some musician friends sing on some songs, I think that would also add some different textures to my songs. Some many idea’s, running through my head, I just have to tackle them one at a time and develop them into credible music.
So let’s take this date of May 18th 2018 and use it as a jumping off point for this project to officially begin. I’m thinking we are looking at a early 2019 release, give or take a few months, you never know as I already have 2 songs in the hopper that I really like. They both just need a little more work and refining.
1st song is “The Women in My Life”
2nd song is “U R I AM”

My New release, “Aldo Buzzi -Eclectic Collaborations” has gotten some good Radio airplay and is getting some notice oversea’s in countries like Japan, Israel, Australia, UK, Philippines and Taiwan are leading the way with many plays and downloads. Here in North America, the United States is leading the way and I would personally like to thank everyone in the states for listening and downloading my music with Canada and Mexico right behind the US with some great play.

What a wild time in my life working and playing at the Mudd Club! My partner Bill and I through our sound system company Centour Sound became the production managers of the club after John Kessler was done doing his stint as the production manager. Just before John left we had the extreme pleasure of John, Bill and I working together to work with Frank Zappa who played the Mudd Club! We brought in extra equipment and a bigger mixing console to accommodate his band. Terry Bozzio was on the drums at that time. That was a thrill to work with a master in such a small venue. There is a sketchy bootleg, sounds to me like someone had a cassette tape recorder and taped it in the midst of the crowd. The recording is on you tube, I included the link – I remember that Frank had his own sound person do a recording right from the board, so that must be available somewhere in some Zappa archive.
We worked with a lot of different bands & artists from Samba to Punk, experimental to down right BAD–fashion shows and you name it everything in between. DJ’s Anita Sarko (who has passed away in 2015) and DJ David Azarch made the club hum, jump and jive into the wee hours of the morning. In which we usually ended up going to an after hours club and came out squinting as the sun was fully out and blaring while we were going home and watching the rest of the world just going to work. I will add more Mudd Club memories in my blog as time goes by – Keith Herring, Johnny Thunders, Question Mark and the Mysterians, Sam and Dave, John Belushi, wow and so many – so stay tuned in! –
