About

Trainwreck’d Society (2011-2021) was an experiment in dubious simplicity.  The site was created by blogger Ron Trembath on July 4th, 2011 in a lonely hotel room just on the outskirts of Biloxi, Mississippi, and was officially decreed to no longer exist on July 4th, 2021. Ten years. What a run!.  Our “based out of” part of the site shifted from that dirty room in Biloxi, to Spokane, Washington to South Korea to southern Spain, the United Kingdom, to its final resting place of Anchorage, Alaska.  TWS is not really based in an region, and also has no basis for reason.  You will see quite a few live reviews form the Portland, Oregon area where one of our fine writers and show gazers is “based” at.

Intentionally stripped down of any glitz and glamour, TWS is a site that is driven by content, and content alone.  This is a place for true artists to shed some light on an otherwise dark and deceiving world.  Music, Literature, Film, Wine, Art, and so much more are the basis of this simple site.  We manage to bring in big names to be profiled right alongside the “emerging artists” with a full on focus on their talents, and not their glamour.  The day we stop doing this, and lose our souls, is the day the wreckage will have been rid of all its sensational glory, and we shall all perish.  So enjoy!

Ron Trembath (founder/editor, drunkard of the lowest sort) who currently lives in the UK and has been in the freelance (meaning unpaid, and underwhelmed) blogger for the last 10 years writing for sites like Fensepost, Crappy Indie Music!  The Blog, Music Geek, Comfort Comes, and Sergeant Sparrow Magazine. He was also the editor and organizer of the collective works project Children of Mercy: Tales and Teaching From the World of Independent Music, which is a book & compilation album released in 2011, just months before TWS came to life.

Past contributors have included the great woodsmen and poet Ray Wiggington of Nashville, Tennessee, filmmaker Chris Eaves from Vancouver, Washington, podcast aficionado Adam Mattson from Longview, Washington, musician David Minne from Longview, Washington, political junkie Dusten Retcher from Bloomington, Minnesota, and more.
