Cop Shoot Cop
Coleman was an integral member of the seminal "post-industrial" NYC based Cop Shoot Cop. CSC released four full length records (on Interscope and Big Cat Records), along with several EP's and singles. Cop Shoot Cop self imploded while recording what would have been their fifth full length record. You may hear some of those unmixed and unreleased tracks here.
Here is the collaboration of Jim Coleman and Teho Teardo. One full length album was released a while ago. Jim and Teho became best friends. They have worked on several new tracks but they have yet to see the light of day, due to the overall crazy business of the modern world.
Baby Zizanie was a collaboration with Jim Coleman and JG Thirlwell (Foetus, Manorexia). One album was released on vinyl through Nail Records, and some cities through Europe were fortunate enough to host live shows.
The Children... started as a collaboration with Jim Coleman and downtown performer Michael Weiner, but grew to include Phil Puleo. Other musicians came aboard as it evolved. They have one self released self titled album. Several spectacle type shows were played in unique settings. The live shows were highlighted with specific environments and large scale projections.
