Cop Shoot Cop - Headkick Facsimile & Pieceman 7" (1989)



Rare early CSC EP's.  Headkick Facsimile was their first record and was given a limited, vinyl only release on some obscure Japanese label.  Some of the songs ended up on Consumer Revolt but the best ones Shine On Elizabeth and Triumphal Theme were on this release only.  I also included Robert Tilton Handjob from the Pieceman EP.  The records sleeve had actual pigs blood splattered all over it.  I remember reading an article about the band years ago that said the sleeves were lied on the floor and they hung a pig from a rope, cut it's throat and spun it around as the blood dripped down on the record sleeves.  I asked Tod A at one CSC's shows about it and he said they got the blood from some local butcher and sprayed the sleeves with spray bottles.  I guess the spinning pig just made for a better story.

  2. Quite an edgy story, considering how weak and soft this album is.
