Cop Shoot Cop

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Cop Shoot Cop - Suck City Suck City
Pop New - LP 96116 Interscope
Sealed 1994 Four-Track EP With Custom Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. “The Lower East Side Avant Garde-Industrialists Made Their Major Label Debut With This Four-Track EP In 1992. It's As If They Can Sense The Majors Panic-Buying In The Wake Of Nirvana - Alongside The Jesus Lizard, They Are Certainly The Most Unlikely Bunch Ever To Take Their Seats On The Back Of The Major Label Gravy Train. On The Title-Track, They Show How Their Heads Have Not Been Turned - Indeed, The Predictions Of Their Own Mortality Are As Chilling As They Are Funny ("We'll Be History By 34/There's Always The Reunion Tour ..."). You've Got To Love A Band With Such A Shrewd Sense Of Perspective.” – Alex Ogg, All Music Guide... more details
 
Cop Shoot Cop - Ask Questions Later Ask Questions Later
Pop Used - LP 72736 Restless
Near Mint 1993 Original With Custom Insert. Cut Corner. “The Band's Full Album Debut On Interscope Resulted In A Surprise Alt-Radio Hit In "$10 Bill." It's Definitely Cop Shoot Cop At Its Most Accessible While Still Being Abrasive — The Guest Horn Section Continues The Jazz-Via-Foetus Connection, While Puleo's Impressive Drumming And Tod A's Piercing Whistle Set The Initial Tone Nicely. A Pity Tod A's Lyric Is One Of His Most Pedestrian — Unless One Really Gets Off On The Idea About How Money Equals Murder — But His Delivery Is As Fierce As Always. As For The Album As A Whole, The Foursome Sounds Resolutely Unchanged By Becoming Part Of The Major-Label Machine; Having Already Disposed Of That Contradiction On Suck City ("Nowhere" Reappears From That EP), They Cranked The Amps Further And Let Fly. About The Only Across-The-Board Change Would Be Slightly Clearer Singing From Tod A, But Given How The Band Values Getting Its Message Across, This Hardly Compromises The Group's Art. Musically, Filer Is Given Even More Room To Breathe With His Array Of Random, Disturbing Samples, Hot-Fusing Electronic/Industrial Keyboards And The Continual Air Of Imminent Destruction That Past Albums Showed. "Surprise, Surprise" Makes For A Fantastic, Corrosive Beginning, Trashing American Society Left, Right, And Center, While "Furnace," Dedicated To A Deceased Friend, Crackles With Angst And Fire. "Room 429" Shows A Subtler Sense Of Aggression Sneaking In, With An Almost Elegiac Chorus And Gripping Midsection Where The Band Slowly Builds To An Explosion Behind Tod A's Almost Whispered Singing. Guest Appearances Throughout Lend Even More Artistic Edge To The Proceedings — Besides The "$10 Bill" Appearance, The Three-Member Motherhead Horns (Including David Ouimet, Future Tod A Collaborator In Firewater) Take A Bow On "Got No Soul." April Chung's Violin On "Cut To The Chase," Meanwhile, Adds A Distinctly Eastern European Folk Vibe To The Fierce Clang.” – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details
