Obscured by Fog and black hooded gowns, Goblin Cock tore through their debut show at the Casbah on August 20. The band, led by "Lord Phallus," crawled from the shadows to fuse the sounds of Pinback and Black Sabbath. Goblin Cock showed to support Sleeping People's CD-release party and to give fans a taste of its own debut; Bagged and Boarded will hit shelves on October 25 after a lengthy delay.
The identity of the caped Lord Phallus isn't a mystery -- it's listed on the Casbah website. Rob Crow's latest project will include a string of videos and comic books that tell the story of his alter ego's birth.
Phallus says he doesn't listen to much contemporary music. "I'm mostly steeped in the classics, like Manowar, Thor, and Venom."
