PODCAST: Claudio Simonetti's Goblin returns!
Masters of Italian horror bring 'Suspiria' to Aisle 5
For this week's Fear of Fear podcast, CL Music Editor Chad Radford and Atlanta-based composer Gregorio Franco talk about the music of Goblin.
For anyone who couldn’t get tickets to the sold-out Halloween show, or for those who couldn’t get enough, Goblin co-founder, composer, and keyboard player Claudio Simonetti returns for an encore performance. Simonetti, guitarist Bruno Previtali, bass player Cecilia Nappo, and drummer Titta Tani bring a rock ’n’ roll stage presence to Goblin’s Italian prog/horror soundtrack legacy. The group plays live to Dario Argento’s witchy 1977 classic, Suspiria — all the spectral breathing sounds and “la la la”s are wholly chilling in person. Stick around for a greatest-hits set that touches on soundtracks to everything from Deep Red to Dawn of the Dead and beyond.
