He was a member of Cop Shoot Cop, and performed under a variety of stage names: Cripple Jim (he toured on crutches due to a broken leg), and usually as Filer.

He has recorded solo albums as Phylr and the closely related project Here and collaborates with J. G. Thirlwell as Baby Zizanie.

Most recently, Coleman has released the ambient album TREES under his own name. He has been doing sporadic live shows of this material in Europe and the US.
