Goblin Cock, more enjoyable than you might think.




San Diego, CA native Rob Crow (Pinback) actively moonlights as "Lord Phallus," Goblin Cock's Leader/Guitarist. Other members of the veiled and cloaked Doom/Stoner/Drone Metal 7-piece include "Larben the Druid" (Lara Benscher), "Bane Ass-Pounder" (Dave Drusky), "King Sith" (Sam Mura), "Braindeath" (Anthony Fusaro), "Loki Sinjuggler" (Adam Ekroth), and "Phuck Tard" (Mike Goldfarb). Making the utmost sinister use of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, keytars, and banjos, Goblin Cock has crafted 2 albums-worth of evil tracks. Musical backings which are then paired with ridiculous/campy lyrical accompaniments written about comic books, Sesame Street resident Mr. Snuffleupagus, and fetish artist Tom of Finland. Both 2005's Bagged and Boarded and Come with Me If You Want to Live (2009) were originally penned entirely in Elvish Runes.
According to a July 2010 interview, Rob Crow is an active member of roughly 15+ bands: "I got [Pinback,] Heavy Vegetable, Thingy, solo stuff, Optiganally Yours, Physics, Aspects of Physics, Altron Tube, Slow Action Sequence Project, Goblin Cock, Alpha Males, The Ladies, Cthugha, Snotnose, Team Sleep, Creedle... Sometimes I'll sit in on other bands' records or whatever. There are probably others." Fellow members of these bands include friends Chino Moreno (Deftones) and Zach Hill (Hella), groups which have even gone as far as to create entire genres - "Math Rock" and "Post-Pop."
