Goblin

Critics' choice

Barbican Hall, Barbican Saturday February 21 2015

Has there ever been a more perfect marriage of sound and vision than Dario Argento’s slasher spectaculars and their soundtracks by leather-clad Italian prog monsters Goblin? No, there hasn’t. Sprung from the ashes of psych-futurists Cherry Five, Goblin were the only band who could’ve made musical sense of Argento’s extreme, ultraviolent vision: if the music was progressive rock, the visuals were every bit as stylised and surreal. Now reunited by original frontman and Euro-disco legend Claudio Simonetti, Goblin arrive in London to live-score a screening of ‘Profondo Rosso’ (1975) in all its gory glory.
