Sex & Train wrecks

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

Sex an Trainwrecks



When you’re in the coffin of life. What do you dream when you’re feet under?

This Is My Life

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
songwriting style.

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

You may ask –Is this the women in Aldo Buzzi’s life???

That I will leave up to your imagination. But, on the other hand…….
