GOBLIN - BILLBOARD THE VENUE, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JULY 14TH 2013.


Just a quick review of Goblin’s return show to Melbourne last night, July 14th 2013, playing at Billboard The Venue!



The night kicked off with a great solo spot from The Night Terror’s Miles Brown. They were the Australian band who supported Goblin late last year at the Melbourne Town Hall, but this time the man was on his own, and he delivered an immersive, pounding set of thick electronic soundscapes, wavering Theremin moods, dark New Wave pop and pounding dancebeats. Terrific stuff, and the performance of his upcoming single was hugely promising.



Then the Italian masters of horror soundtracks arrived on the stage to tear through an almost two hour set of various classic pieces that many fans of their movie work no doubt enjoyed. Unlike the Town Hall performance which allowed the band access to the massive church organ, this time Claudio Simonetti performed entirely on synths, flanked on the other side by other Goblin mainstay Maurizio Guarini, although both were frequently drowned out by Massimo Morante’s searing electric guitar playing. His playing was a little more ragged and heavy, creating a truly draining and overwhelming performance! Bass player Bruno Previtali's punchy bass added to the heaviness, and hard drummer Titta Tani was also given plenty of moments of quiet and loose subtle improvisation.





Although the track list was frequently similar to the previous Melbourne show, there were longer medleys of albums with frequent improvisations and jamming sections. The band also made great use of projected clips of their movies on massive screens behind them, such as `Profondo Rosso’, `Suspiria’, `Dawn of the Dead’ and `Phenomena’, and all were met with great response from the fans. I was wrapped to hear plenty of their album `Roller’ performed too, as it's one of my absolute favourite progressive albums!



Last year Claudio mentioned to the crowd that their Town Hall show was a real one off for them, being the first time the band had been able to perform their music live with a proper church organ. This time around they also had a special opportunity, with Miles Brown returning to the stage to add some Theremin moodiness to `Phenomena’ (at least I think that’s what they were playing, as I haven’t listened to that album in years, but it showed scenes from the movie behind them at the time).

All in all, a great night for the crowd, with the band delivering another superb performance of outstanding professional technicality with great humour!



With great difficulty I and a few others were able to get some LP’s/CD’s signed by the band (much to the annoyance of a pushy little security guard who was getting extremely pissed we weren’t moving on!), and it just closed the night on a final wonderful note. I should also thank the good company of my best mate Harry Sunto (Archives member Stratcat) and his nephew Lex. I also hope that guy who was desperate to get his rare Suspiria LP signed left with his mission accomplished!

I'll add a setlist when it shows up online, as well as hopefully some much better pictures. I took about thirty but the coloured lights rendered most of them too blurry to be of much use. Hopefully some video clips might show up soon as well!

Thank you Goblin, return any time!

UPDATE: And now here's the setlist:

Micheal....color me Green with envy!! Beautiful man. Thanks for the cool review.
Glad you had a great time. Pic look amazing.

That is so awesome! You are so lucky seeing them twice already. Thanks for the review.

How many people were there?

Well, Sagi, my above mentioned friend Stratcat, who bought the tickets, noted that the numbers on our tickets were 651-653....and although we were down the front row, we looked back and noticed there was easily that, if not closer to 800 people??

Very surprised that they pulled those sort of numbers, but then again, there's also movie fans, heavy music fans, horror junkies...and general prog rock nutters like us lol! So that's people coming from pretty different backgrounds.

Tom, what made the Nektar gig so disappointing? Wish I'd had the opportunity to see them

Well, having no light show (or any sort of fancy lighting really) was a bummer from the get go.  The band were lucky to have played for about 1hr 20min, and I couldn't make out Lux Vibratus' bass much (yes, that's the name he goes by) and the keyboards were a little buried in places.  Perhaps the actual venue didn't allow the nuances and dynamics to shine through, though the set-list was full of goodies from their 70's albums.
Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash performed an impressive set so I am now a fan of them LOL
I still enjoyed it but was probably expecting more.

Nektar were known for a really impressive lightshow/psychedelic effects in the 70's, weren't they?

Still, you DID get to see them, pretty cool!

Quirky, I'm not really even sure why it was `over 18's, other than the fact that some of the movies projected on the screen behind them contained footage of horror films!

I suspect they'll come out again, they seem to get a good turnout, so I'm sure you'll get another opportunity!

I am jealous...I love Wishbone Ash's Argus album...one of my favorites.  Never get tired of it. 
Curious, was Andy Powell with the band on that tour?

I am sure the only original member of the band was indeed Martin T.  Andy Powell runs 'Wishbone Ash' seperately, and what I witnessed was 'Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash' (due to legal b.s.).  They played lots of great songs.  I'd never heard them before this gig but knew of them for decades.  I can see how Steve Harris almost moulded his band Iron Maiden on the track 'Throw Down The Sword' alone - rhythms, melodies, structure, instrumentation etc.  I couldn't help but notice how strongly the music of W.A. influenced/inspired the young Harris.  Marty is a very majestic bassist - he came out in a pure white suit with his pure white Gibson Thunderbird bass and played it fantastically.  I was very happy I caught Nektar but without original members 'Mo' Moore and 'Taff' Freeman (bass & keys, respectively) I didn't quite feel the magic.

Yeah - dumb f**kers pulled the plug during the finale to 'Openings'.  Never forget, nor forgive the musicians union for doing that.  And Yes pretty much fumbled through their set, though Wakeman was spot-on and fun to watch.  We got to hear 'Clap' on electric guitar (from memory) which was novel.  My friend Jules has that gig captured but he never dubbed me a copy......Angry

Yep, I LOVE `Magic Thriller', Verslibre!

It kicks off the shows, and live it has an added aggression and heaviness that pumps the crowd and the band up! Good stuff!

The album it's from, 2005's `Back To The Goblin', is really pretty good! Maurizio Guarini's keyboards frequently have a more proper symphonic prog sound on that one! It's all decent, but like most of their albums, there's a couple of aboslute stunning pieces to be found on it.

Back to the Goblin is on my pick up list next time I'm in sonicboom records. Toronto doesn't carry much prog, but that store has a little bit. :)

It's essential Goblin, IMO. Fabio Pignatelli's bass playing is integral to the Goblin 'sound'...since Bruno's primarily a guitarist (and was in Daemonia, and I did get to see them), how does he sound recreating Fabio's lines?

I'm going to give the `Back' album another spin on the way into work now, Verslibre! At the concerts, a lot of the time Bruno plays like he's in a metal band lol! But when the band launches into the jammier/improv sections, he shows a lot of restraint and subtlety. In fact, during those parts, the band almost resembled 70's Pink Floyd.

Stay away from the album 'Volo'
Bagarazzo Mark on the other hand - absolutely love that one.  And the Cherry Five album is a beauty.
Would be extra special if Pignatelli was still on bass........
I still haven't got any of their more recent albums.................any suggestions ??

Non Ho Sonno (aka Nonhosonno) is fantastic! That's got the Roller line-up minus Guarini...

Yep, that would be the one I would choose too, Verslibre.

I like `Contamination' too, not exactly a proper new `studio' release, but just one I picked up not long ago and gave a positive review to, not sure if you have that one, Tom?

Other than those, there IS a vinyl of `Back To The Goblin' available, in addition to numerous reissues, the CD versions of which are usually jammed with bonus tracks/demos/alt.takes, etc.

Man, I feel really fortunate to have snagged 'THE AWAKENING' Goblin box set.
6 amazing CDs in a hard cover case consisting of Profondo Rosso, Roller, tenebre, Zombi, Suspiria, Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bangarozzo Mark.

Couldn't ask for more. I still really can't decide what my favourite album is. :)

I really hope they come to Canada one day....I can only dream.

Michael, I don't recall you mentioning much about the more recent Goblin albums, so Nonhosonno is worthwhile ??  I know Greg has several on his list.  I always found their soundtracks to contain the odd dud track, which may well work in the contexts of the films but come across fairly weak in audio format........


Posted By: Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Date Posted: July 27 2013 at 19:09
I think most of their albums have that....well, `dud' track is a little too strong a word, but `filler', `killing time' or `less interesting' certainly!

But I'll give `Nonhosonno' another spin and I'll report back, just haven't listened to it in a little while.

I wonder if they ever played, "Black Forest" live.  That seems to me to be their most exciting
work, but I don't know their oeuvre that well.

Maybe waaay back when the album was new...but I bet they've played it since. It's not on my '79 concert CD.

'Suspiria' is amazing - probably is their most consistent from the albums I have (8 - including the Reale Brittanico album) Thumbs Up - otherwise it's Cherry Five all the way.

Suspiria has some trippy experimental-sounding music on it, so one person's "consistent" might not be another's. Great score but I've always preferred Zombi aka Dawn Of The Dead to that one.

I understand the 'consistency' bit, but when something like a goofy, boogie piano piece comes through the speakers (a piece on 'Zombi' - don't recall the title) I think "eek".......that lets the whole thing down (for me), but as I mentioned earlier, maybe in the context of the films, it probably makes perfect sense.

I love "Torta en Faccia!" I know what you mean. A couple tracks on Zombi stand out like that.

There's an album called 'Amo Non Amo' - side 1 features tracks to the film of the same name (starring Jacqueline Bissett) and side 2 is compilation of 4 tracks from earlier albums.  Side 1 is pretty weak.  Not the 'Goblin' many of us have come to love.

I have the title track and one other on one of the Goblin Rarities CDs that Cinevox issued. Yeah, that's an oddball. I actually do NOT own the actual soundtrack. As much a Goblin freak as I am, I never felt like shelling out for it.

Cherry Five are more Yes than Goblin.  I just love the album, end to end.  If you dig Yes, you should be impressed with this one.  Here's news (LOL) - I haven't listened to 'Roller' for many, many years Shocked...........

^ what a great piece of work that is! Not one bad track of Suspiria if you ask me. Love Black Forest/Black Concert. One of the longest songs they ever did. ;)
'Suspiria' is amazing - probably is their most consistent from the albums I have (8 - including the Reale Brittanico album) Thumbs Up - otherwise it's Cherry Five all the way.
Oh I do like Your enthusiasm here for Cherry 5. Sadly, I've not picked it up yet Tom, but when I do i will be sure to let ya know mr. Suspiria Tom. And with that purchase I'll have 8 Goblin albums as well. ;)
!!!!!
Cherry Five are more Yes than Goblin.  I just love the album, end to end.  If you dig Yes, you should be impressed with this one.  Here's news (LOL) - I haven't listened to 'Roller' for many, many years Shocked...........
Tom. I just bought it. Found a new copy for 11$. Should get it in the mail in 2 weeks. I love Yes, so I'll be looking forward to this. Hey hey! Make it 8 now!! Lol
Bargain !!  By no means a Yes clone, but similar styling.  Pignatelli plays bass like Squire, a Rickenbacker too Thumbs Up


I know I'm gonna love it. Members from Goblin being completely symphonic I shall adore. Another side to the amazing talents of certain Goblin members. I hear the vocals are nice as well when talking about this album in the RPI Den. ;)

^ Tony Tartarini - also from Uovo di Colombo.
I remember a friend of mine came across a Funk compilation disc and the track 'Snip Snap' was one of the cuts !!

Call out a "Play all of `Roller'!!" for me, Nick!

I actually did this at their first Melbourne show, and it even turned up on the boot of the show! Naughty recorder must not have been too far away!

They'd have to be haul me away in a straitjacket on a stretcher if they did due to the mixture of disbelief/euphoria!

^^ guys. I've listened to about 12 different Goblin albums and I have to say that ROLLER really is their best piece of music. I think I would have to be wheeled in with a mask, on an upward stretcher nicely tied up like Hannibal Lecter if I were to find out that ROLLER would be played in is entirety.

Good call guys! Good call.

Hey Progbethyname... sounds like a plan!  :-)  I'm hoping to drive in from Waterloo with a couple of friends if the schedule works out.
