Cop Shoots Cop - Ask Questions Later Colored Vinyl LP
Cop Shoots Cop Ask Questions Later Colored Vinyl LP
The groundbreaking NY noise rock band finally sees their major label releases reissued on gorgeous colored vinyl - limited edition pressing! Originally released in 1993, Ask Questions Later was the band's debut album for Interscope records and features the major college radio and MTV hit "$10 Bill" plus "Room 429," "Got No Soul" and a whole lot more!
Initially, the group was a trio of Tod A. (vocals, bass guitar), David Ouimet (keyboards, sampler) and Phil Puleo on drums and "metal" (he incorporated various found objects into his drum set). (Tod and Puleo had earlier played in a short-lived Providence, Rhode Island group, Dig Dat Hole, with guitarist John Rose.)
The A./Puleo/Ouimet lineup was captured on the "Headkick Facsimile" 12" EP, which was released in a small pressing by the Japanese record label Supernatural Organization in 1989 (later reissued by the group's own Subvert Entertainment in 1994 with the addition of the song "Robert Tilton Handjob" from the "Piece Man" 7"). Wharton Tiers engineered the EP.
Puleo reports their name was inspired by both the band members' shared dislike of police officers, and a newspaper headline about a botched police raid, reading "'Cop Shot Cop' or maybe it was 'Cop Shoots Cop.'" Another possible explanation for the band's moniker is what is described as a "junkie's to do list:" "cop" (obtain drugs, especially heroin) "shoot" (Inject the drugs)" and "cop" again.
