Climax in Hillcrest

"It's dirty, dingy, rocking metal full of comic-book adventures," says film director Matt Hoyt of Goblin Cock, the latest musical venture from Rob Crow (Pinback, Heavy Vegetable, etc.). "[Crow] wants people to buy into his mythical character of Lord Phallus...an Andy Kaufman--type character."

Hoyt directed the video for "Stumped." In the video, Goblin Cock members battle a local women's softball team.

"It's inferred they are all lesbians," says Hoyt, who found his softball team at the Golden Hill Rec Center. "They were non-actors. I thought they would realize some of the inherent comedy. But they were stone-faced during most of the shooting. I was put in the precarious position of having to be the guy who tells the lesbian softball team what to do. When I asked them to chew gum and look tough, I realized they didn't have to act."

In the video, a fight breaks out between the grim-reaper-looking Goblin Cocks and the softball team.

"The fight scene climaxes at a dead-end street in Hillcrest," says Hoyt. "Two robots suddenly emerge, holding a child hostage. The two groups merge to battle the robots and free the child."

Hoyt used to manage and book the all-age Soul Kitchen club in El Cajon ('94--'97). He graduated from San Francisco State University with an English degree. At SDSU, he earned a master's degree in film; his thesis was a film based on the Black Heart Procession's Amore Del Tropico CD.
