(1993, Big Cat/Interscope)
Surely one of the most improbable major label debuts, from a time when there were already a few notables in that field. Sporting two bass guitars and no six-strings, Cop Shoot Cop dealt in industrial noise, but with a sound that veered closer to the likes of Fudge Tunnel than NIN. Eagle-eyed listeners may recognise the second track on this, Room 249, from the Strapping Young Lad cover.
