Le correzioni di Barbagallo.
Presentazione di “Any Girl’s Eyes” a cura di Stefano Solventi.

Ebbene sì, sto per gettare la spugna. Mi manca davvero poco e ho la sensazione che avrei dovuto farlo da un pezzo. Invece sto ancora qui a cercare di capire Barbagallo, di inquadrarlo. Un'autentica perdita di tempo. Mentre negli anni ne scoprivo le varie declinazioni soliste (un range che va dal folk-blues più basale all'avanguardia electro-psych) e il caleidoscopio dei progetti bandistici (i blues-rock La Petroliera, gli avant jazz Les Dix-huit Secondes, gli ultra-popadelici Albanopower, i grunge in acido Suzanne’Silver, i bluesy Tempestine, i più matematici La Moncada, l’impro noise del trio con Jean Francois Laporte e Emilio Bernè), al senso di pienezza e intensità delle proposte si aggiungeva lo sconcerto per l'imprevedibilità di soluzioni e direzioni sonore. Roba che un qualsiasi scribacchino musicale ci diventa matto, tenuto com'è a definire e catalogare, obbediente alla regola inflessibile del "file under". Meglio gettare la spugna, credetemi, e prendere questo trentenne (circa) siracusano così come viene. Tuttavia, in questo turbillon di idee e slanci, c'è una cosa che non è mai venuta meno e che potrebbe rappresentare la vera polpa poetica di Barbagallo: la determinazione a seguire l'estro fino al suo compiersi, rendendo impossibile distinguere il confine tra slancio appassionato e sforzo intellettuale, entrambi spinti entusiasticamente fino al limite. Un bel ritrattino di musicista, non c'è che dire, mi sono fatto negli anni. Questo nuovo disco arriva però a raccontarmi che c'era posto per un altro colore, del tutto inatteso: quello caldo e pulsante del soul. No, davvero, da non crederci, ma è proprio così: l'ultima incarnazione di Carlo Barbagallo si fa impollinare da suggestioni black, pennella i bordi col calore luminoso dei fiati, manda le chitarre in sollucchero rugginoso e si scava interpretazioni canore più dense. Riuscendo a risultare ancora una volta convincente. Chiariamo: soul qui significa più attitudine che stile, un'angolazione che sposta il baricentro sonico dalle parti di John Martyn buonanima, uno sfarfallare acustico ed elettrico come ti aspetti da chi si porta Terry Callier nel cuore, senza scordare l'antica ruvidità che rimanda a certi prodromi grunge, in particolare all'iperblues dei Soundgarden con gli amplificatori smorzati. C'è insomma un senso di percorso che prosegue con le giuste correzioni di rotta, ma appunto prosegue e sembra avere chiara la direzione. Perciò seguirlo fa così piacere.

Track Name: Any Girl's Eyes
Have to hide under a stone the word forever
Unexpected sudden change of the meaning of together
Even it’s clear the habit worm was there, growing silent since long
My skin is falling now and my bones are crumbling, the soul fed by some insane behaviours

A loop of stoned wakes, rides and trains, unknown faces and passive talking
Empty excitement letting the look wandering for any girl's eyes
l’m slipping opportunities over time like a fool
Feeling loneliness with the c*ck in my left hand and hours of music that I have still to write

Since the beginning I was a leach, so what do you expect from me?
A heavy selfish cancer in the end, so what do you expect from me?
And please stop with all these guilts, just say “you don’t exist”
Your “I’ll be here for you” will need to me when I will never need you

Every day I hope to erase you as you were never be mine
Track Name: Any Girl's Eyes (Solo)
Have to hide under a stone the word forever
Unexpected sudden change of the meaning of together
Even it’s clear the habit worm was there, growing silent since long
My skin is falling now and my bones are crumbling, the soul fed by some insane behaviours

A loop of stoned wakes, rides and trains, unknown faces and passive talking
Empty excitement letting the look wandering for any girl's eyes
l’m slipping opportunities over time like a fool
Feeling loneliness with the c*ck in my left hand and hours of music that I have still to write

Since the beginning I was a leach, so what do you expect from me?
A heavy selfish cancer in the end, so what do you expect from me?
And please stop with all these guilts, just say “you don’t exist”
Your “I’ll be here for you” will need to me when I will never need you

Every day I hope to erase you as you were never be mine
Track Name: Rust (Solo)
Why I shouldn't go on a moonlight road to nowhere
Why I shouldn't drive around until my friends will all be gone
Why I shouldn't ramble on selling lies with a bunch of songs
Why I shouldn't think more when the sunlight is coming down

But I would drown you, forget our past and cover all our sins.
There's still some hope to hold this bad ending?
Just let the curtain falls!

Why i shouldn't go on?

Some people say “I was rust and I’ll eat dust”
It's just like a dream I had: you're around me but night will not last

I would drown her but some said "Hate stirs up conflict and love covers all sins"
Have we still some hope to hold this sad ending?
Just let the curtain falls!

Why I shouldn't go on?
Track Name: 11 Dreams (Solo)
Through and around the bends; here is lying some precious time and a vicious failure
Coloured thoughts and other frozen lies; a lack of flavour
There's no much, honey, just a breath of cigarettes burned and lack of heart
Hanging around for a sad meeting, underground

You got eleven dreams at least and no one will run
You got eleven dreams and you’ll on lonely ride
Yes it is!

Covered through a silk blanket there's a uncoloured love that I wish it will fail
There's no much money just to burn cigarettes and soul's sparks with no hope

You got eleven dreams and you're on lonely ride yet
Just one of all these dreams will show you how to die
Yes it is!

And forever and ever it will be and I was
