STEPHEN BRODKSY is friend that I’ve known for over a decade now. I had been a huge fan of his band CAVE IN from its inception, almost to the point of obsession.  We initially “met” when Steve called a CD broker that I was working at, inquiring about pressing up a small run of his own solo material.  I think you can fill in the gaps on where that conversation went by this point, as a few short months later, Expose Your Overdubs (Steve’s debut solo album) was released by Magic Bullet.

That album was followed up by another great collection of his lo-fi solo material titled Olé Sunday.  From that point on, Steve and his projects have always had a primary and supplemental home at Magic Bullet.  Whether it be special releases with his rock band CAVE IN, his early tenure in NEW IDEA SOCIETY, appearing on RINGFINGER or OLD MAN GLOOM records, if it’s got STEPHEN BRODSKY on it, I’m more than happy to put the damn thing out.
