Goblin Cock - Bagged And Boarded
San Diego's cave dwelling sludge metal demons GOBLIN COCK, have just announced they've finsihed the video for the song "Stumped" off their forthcoming debut album "Bagged and Boarded" out October 25th on Absolutely Kosher!

Having been leader of such instrumental and groundbreaking bands as Pinback and Heavy Vegetable, singer / songwriter / experimentor extraordinaire, Rob Crow, sets his sights on making some of the heaviest doom-riddin sludge metal quite possibly since the days of Sabbath.
With influences stemming from every direction of the musical spectrum, Crow has performed on some of the most beautiful and boggling records to date, including projects like cult heroes Optiganally Yours and Thingy, the lush atmospheric sonic mastery of Physics, and the completely freakish Holy Smokes (also featuring Zach Hill). In his latest incarnation as GOBLIN COCK, Crow goes balls to the wall and turns the axe down low to prove its not just beauty and weird that he's able to project, but pure, unadulterated ROCK! cock rock? almost literally.
Some have surmised that Rob Crow has the equivalent of musical A.D.D., but itıs more a case of seeing the world through song and brimming to the gills with inspiration and originality. He is clearly one of the most distinct and innovative musicians of the last 20 years. Of course, nothing exists in a vacuum and at the heart of this long and twisting musical career is a metalhead. And that metalheadıs secret black heart of motherfucking hearts has been simmering in a vast cauldron filled with orcıs blood and Sabbath records, seasoned with a comic books obsession (the title refers to the storage of comics, a hallowed ritual in itself) and injected with a vulgar sense of humor juxtaposed over a love of simple things (such as Sesame Street's elusive pachyderm, Snuffaluffagus).
From the caustic, bubbling froth emerges Goblin Cock, monstrous in its potency, grotesque, fully formed, vile and virile in its power. OK, I could write this press release with enough cock puns to choke a critic (see?) and enough hyperbole to make it any metal release, but itıs not. Itıs better. Itıs the best rock record in years. This is not a side project. This is not ironic. Yes, this is serious. Yes, this is fun. Yes, this record is so fucking great for so many reasons, chief among them the way it fucking rocks. Fucker.
In addition to the standard CD release, the album will also be available on a limited edition picture disc 12² LP, now available for pre-order on the Absolutely Kosher site. Both the CD cover and the picture disc are adorned with an explicit painting by artist Mike Sutfin, a professional whose work can also be found on Magic The Gathering cards and on commercial Star Wars packaging. It is one of the greatest album covers of all time. Sadly, the sensitive morale fiber of this country necessitates us to cover the most explicit portion of the CD cover with a sticker on the outer wrapping.
Both Rob Crow and guitarist Brent Asbury (ex-Thingy, ex-Pinback) are expecting newborns in October, so Goblin Cock wonıt be touring until after the New Year.
