Cop Shoot Cop was a rock music group founded in New York, NY in 1987 and disbanded in 1996.

They were frequently classified as industrial rock, but were often quite different from many bands so dubbed. Tod A.'s lyrics were clever, snide and evocative (Art Black and David Sprague suggest that "Black humor beats black metal any day") and their "weirdly catchy" music which drew "on hot jazz and swing as much as clanging rock, emphasizing the group's stand-apart… read more

    These guys ruled. Incredibly underappreciated, just like the Cows. Firewater is a cool band well worth checking out, too.

    I didn't get to hear any of this stuff when it first came out. I'm listening to White Noise for the first time this very evening. Is it wrong to consider a record that is almost as old as I am 'refreshing'? I don't want to say it was ahead of its time; I can hear the influences - I hear some of The Birthday Party right alongside some Melvins, a teensy bit of Idiot Flesh... and this dates it. But this isn't a bad thing; a lot of music from back then has this tense, dingy, rusted edge to it - something that really puts the underbelly of that musical era into direct focus. It's distinct in that regard. Not that modern music lacks anything; on the contrary, there are a lot of bands that I absolutely love that are less than 5 years formed - It's just *different*. But man. I'm glad that somewhere out there, in space and time, that there is/was someone out there just as pissed off and jaded as I am; and was far better at putting it into words.
