Cherry Five

Having started out as Oliver (releasing a few demo tapes) they later changed their name to Cherry Five (releasing one, eponymous, LP) before finally settling on Goblin. During the completion of the Cherry Five album, Dario Argento helped bring over the members to score his Profondo Rosso soundtrack; at which point drummer Carlo Bordini was replaced by Walter Martino and Goblin was formed.

It should be noted that the band was never called Cherry Five. They were originally Oliver and then chose the name Goblin as a result of finding the first interesting word in the English dictionary (according to one member). Cinevox, for reasons I am unaware of, chose to release the album at the start of 1976 under the name Cherry Five, a name chosen by the label and not the band. They seemed not to want the record to conflict with other Goblin releases as they generally kept the connection to the popular Profondo Rosso group under wraps. A strange choice for sure....
