RATTLER, NITRO TOKYO, MAGIC BULLET TO OFFICIALLY
KILL SUMMER 2007 AT BLACK CAT (WASHINGTON, DC)
Somewhere, somehow, someone granted NITRO TOKYO,
RATTLER, and MAGIC BULLET RECORDS
free reign of the Black Cat's upstairs room for the night of September
1, 2007. We don't know if somebody forgot to sign something... or lost
a bet... or what the deal is. What we do know is that we know how to throw
a fucking party.
So come one, come all. In addition to RATTLER, NITRO
TOKYO, and special guests ASSROCKERS doing what they do best,
we're going to have a very special limited edition CD (only 500 copies
made) with 3 new songs from both RATTLER and NITRO
TOKYO available for the first time anywhere.

If you can't make it, you can pre-order the CD in our webstore.
NEW LIMITED EDITION RELEASES FOR SUMMER 2007
On top of the NITRO TOKYO & RATTLER
split CD, we've got three other new limited edition releases for you.
First up is the latest offering from BIG CHINA & LITTLE TROUBLE,
the 2-man soundscape collaboration between Magic Bullet's own Brent Eyestone
and the Electric Human Project's Mike Haley. Their third release to date,
Fur & Teeth is 2 tracks of prime trance-inducing goodness.
Packaged with (faux) fur and 100-million-years-old shark teeth fossils,
this 3" disc is sure to repulse everyone you know. Limited to 100
copies and available in the webstore NOW.
Next we have a demo cassette offering from our Connecticut friends in
WEED BLADE. Never heard of them? Well, if you follow
the label, chances are you're familiar with label vets SPARROWS
SWARM AND SING. You know the little bearded dude that always
sits down when they play? Well, this is that dude's noisy hardcore project.
Songs about John Locke, Thrasher mag, Hellboy, and dumpy asses. Limited
to 50, so you should probably act now or forever hold your grease.
And finally, we present you a limited edition art book and CD from Brent
Eyestone's solo/ambient moniker AUGHRA. This is like
the umpteenth AUGHRA release in a relatively short span
of time, but certainly the most ambitious and satisfying. 5 tracks of
aural bliss accompanied by photos, stencils, and other art in a hand-made
book intended for you to soak in while zoning out. 250 of these exist,
all signed and numbered.

FIRE IN THE STUDIO: RECORDING NEW FULL LENGTH PLUS FILM SCORE
wunderkinds ON FIRE have begun
the process of tracking material that will comprise their first ever (and
long-anticipated) full length for Magic Bullet. Currently slated to be
9 new songs and 4 ambient interludes, the band is set to complete the
process this fall with Malcolm Burn (Patti Smith, Rainer Maria, Emmy Lou
Harris et al) at the helm. Expect a winter release... great news for those
who first picked up the band's MCD back in 2004.
Also in the works is a score for an upcoming short film seeing its Boston
debut on August 24. We will have more information on this project as it
To keep up with all things ON FIRE,
WILL DESTROY YOU FORCED TO CANCEL TOUR (& OTHER NEWS)
that bearded dude above? Well, send your thoughts and prayers his way
right now. That's our friend Jeremy and he was recently diagnosed with
Crohn's Disease, a rather brutal digestive condition that forced his band,
THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, to have to cancel all remaining
summer tour dates while he gets treatment and education on this matter.
While we're saddened to learn of Jeremy's condition and temporary inability
to be out there on the road playing for you folks this summer, we're happy
to report that come fall, he'll be back with the band, performing at Texas
shows with plans for more national touring (being worked on now).
Meanwhile, mastering for the band's self-titled full length is underway
and should be completed in time for a release around the new year. We'll
of course keep you posted.
Finally, the THIS
WILL DESTROY YOU's
music will appear in episode 5 of VH1's new series The Pickup Artist,
where some barfly douchebag in a Jamiroquai hat and ski goggles teaches
the socially inept how to pick up dive-bar-quality ladies. Yeah, don't
