Ago was a long running Italo project based around the voice and long haired, gothy porn star image of Agostino Presta, veering into soft pop rock as the 80's wore on, but rooted in the Italo funk sound during the early part of the decade.

Lots of top synthy Italo producers spread across the Ago singles, but the first couple of releases had the Cavalieri brothers working the keys and as such are stand outs.

I'm putting up two cuts from 'For You' the first album, as well as an instrumental from their first (and I think only?) US single release:

Ago - Trying Over
Ago - For You
Ago - You Make Me Do It (Instrumental)

    Ha, Ha, HA, I really nearly choked myself after laughing to the description you made of Agostino Presta...but I must say you're right !

    Thanks for posting these tracks, "For you" and "You make me do it" are just incredible, very different but I like them both (I have the LP & 12"). Beat Electric rules ! :) Boo
