Joe Frankulin interview from Mortuary zine #3, 1992:

TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT THE CREATION OF GOATLORD:
– The band formed about 5 years ago in Las Vegas area. The members are: Ace Still-Vocals, Jeff Nardone-Drums, Joe Franklin-Guitar, and Jeff Schwob-Bass. We have released 2 demos which are: “demo ’87” and “Sodomize the goat”.

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
– I feel like snorting an ounce of cocaine, licking some rotten pussy and masturbating while sitting on top of a horse in a barn.

I SAY GRAVE???
– I don’t know what the Hell you just asked??? (Hmm, I wanted to know what you’re thinking about the cool Swedish band GRAVE and what you would say about them!!!-ED)

DO YOU LIKE PORNOS???
– Only if they include a horse, two cows, a pig and some ketchup! (Damn animal fuckers!!!!!!-ED)

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN, IN GOD OR IN SATAN???
– Neither! Nobody in the band believes in Satan. Jeff Schwob is an Atheist, Jeff Nardone and Ace don’t know what they believe in (Maybe yet in Satan???-ED) and myself is trying to understand the Christian point of view. (Hah?? Why that????? I think there’s nothing that you could understand!!! People should more believe in themself and not in any stupid God, cool Satan or something like that!!! But I better don’t think too much, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…-ED)

DO YOU KNOW IF YOU GREAT DEBUT LP IS SELLING GOOD AT THE MOMENT?
– I’m not really sure. It has only been out a few weeks. I hope it’s selling good. What I heard from TURBO MUSIC, it’s doing good.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VIOLENCE AT GIGS???
– I think it’s stupid! People should try to have a good time at gigs!!! People can still stage dive and slam dance without getting hurt. So why does there have to be violence??? It’s dumm!

DO YOU HAVE NEW MATERIAL? WHEN DOES YOUR 2ND LP COME OUT?
– We have about 3 new songs for the next LP. They are so fucken heavy!!! Our next LP won’t be out until maybe sometime next year.

YOUR INFLUENCES:
– Our influences are mostly older bands such as old CELTIC FROST, old SODOM, POSSESSED, EVOKED DOOM, VITUS.

FUTURE PLANS:
– Snort more cocaine and tour.

LAST WORDS BEFORE BRUTALLY DYING:
– Do cocaine and go to Hell!!!!!!!!!
