Cop Shoot Cop - White Noise (1991)

Cop Shoot Cop was an experimental band from NYC who, starting in 1991, released a series of four pretty undeniable albums over the course of the same number of years, of which White Noise is the second. A thunderous rhythm section (including two bassists), vocalist Tod Ashely's abrasive, throaty, often toneless vocal delivery, and an overall sense of barely contained chaos, places their sound somewhere in the vicinity (and quality) of vintage Am Rep, with an ever-so-slight industrial edge.

Track listing:
1. Discount Rebellion
2. Traitor/Martyr
3. Coldest Day of the Year
4. Feel Good
5. Relief
6. Empires Collapse
7. Corporate Protopop
8. Heads I Win, Tails You Lose
9. Chameleon Man
10. Where's the Money?
11. If Tomorrow Ever Comes
12. Hung Again

Judas or Jesus, which one was smarter?
The traitor or the martyr?
