Agostino Marangolo

Born in Catania on June 25, 1953, into a family of musicians (his brother is saxophonist Antonio Marangolo), he lived in Acireale.

He formed his first band Flea on the Honey in 1969, later played with Etna, and in 1974 joined Goblin (in place of Walter Martino, and with Claudio Simonetti and Massimo Morante), a group remembered for their many soundtracks for horror films (including Suspiria, Zombi). He will remain there until 1980. In the same year he collaborated with the “New Perigeo,” with Giovanni Tommaso, Danilo Rea, Maurizio Giammarco and Carlo Pennisi.

In 1976 he recorded some songs with the Neapolitan band Napoli Centrale, songs that would later become part of their second album Mattanza.
