CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE: Magic Bullet Records Adds Reissue Of Classic 7” To 20th Anniversary Release Roster


As part of Magic Bullet Records’ 20th anniversary celebrations, the label is proud to announce another installment in the CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE reissue project, this time in the form of the “4010” b/w “Away” 7” originally issued on Freewill Records in 1994.

During a brief run of less than three years (1993-1996), CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE managed to turn punk on its head via their trademark (and often imitated) sound that holds up to this day. Everyone from Jimmy Eat World to The Get Up Kids to Texas Is The Reason has cited the influence of the band on both their bands and what became known as “emo” at large, with Alternative Press going so far as to name the CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE as one of “13 Bands that Became Legends in Four years or Less” (2010) AND “23 Bands Who Shaped Punk” (2007).

Out of print for many years, the emo/punk classic “4010” b/w “Away” 7” is back with brand new artwork and a choice of either classic black or clear vinyl. Both sides are spun at 45 rpm for maximum fidelity. Magic Bullet Records will issue the record on both black and clear wax and digital download on November 18th; preorders are live at the label store HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Track Listing:
1. 4010
2. Away

COLISEUM & DOOMRIDERS: Magic Bullet Records Confirms Reissue Of Long Out-Of-Print Danzig Covers For November Release


Magic Bullet Records will reissue the long out-of-print Not Of this World split 7” from COLISEUM and DOOMRIDERS in November, this week posting preorders and more on the release.

Back in 2005, COLISEUM’s Ryan Patterson self-released a 12” on his label Auxiliary which featured both his band and Boston’s DOOMRIDERS’ ultimate tribute to the almighty Danzig. Each band turned a cover of a song from the classic self-titled debut Danzig LP, with COLISEUM adding two originals and DOOMRIDERS putting up one original. A CD version of the release was also issued on the defunct Level Plane label.

While the COLISEUM material was later repackaged into a collections release on Temporary Residence, the DOOMRIDERS material remained out-of-print for many years. As part of the upcoming celebrations to commemorate Magic Bullet Records’ 20th anniversary, the label is celebrating the friends and musicians (lifers) that were a significant inspiration as the years went on, starting with a split 7” featuring both bands’ Danzig covers from the 2005 Not Of This Worldsplit. Without question, the gentlemen that comprise(d) both bands have been essential to the growth of the label, be it releasing great music on Magic Bullet (i.e. DOOMRIDERS’ debut LP Black ThunderDISAPPEARER’s The Clearing 2xLP/CD, the first four OLD MAN GLOOM LP’s, JESUIT’s Discography LP/CD, etc.), screening shirts for Magic Bullet bands (via Shirtkiller), booking and playing shows with Magic Bullet bands, and on and on.

This special, limited reissue features brand new Danzig tribute artwork from the steady hands of visual artist Florian Bertmer. Magic Bullet will reissue Not Of This World on November 18th on black, white, and clear 7” vinyl pressings. Preorders are available at the label store HERE and via Bandcamp HERE.

Not Of This World Track Listing:
1. Am I Demon (COLISEUM)
2. Possession (DOOMRIDERS)

Riley Moore for West Virginia House of Delegates

rileyAs a general rule of thumb, Magic Bullet Records does not get tied up in the realms of politics or religion. It takes something rather egregious for myself and the label to formally speak out on either.

Recently, it’s been brought to my attention that Rod Snyder and the West Virginia Democrat party have launched a patently misguided attack campaign on an individual that has provided me with years of genuine friendship, laughter, and professional inspiration.

During the years that I had the distinct pleasure of working with Riley Moore and his friends on their satirical, comedy/theatrical performance group RATTLER, I witnessed first-hand the tremendous levels of hard work, good nature, and inclusiveness that simply exuded from Mr. Moore both on-stage and off. He was a shining star in every capacity, wholly embraced by the comedy and parody-music communities for both the FUN environments he encouraged at live performances and his exceptional interpersonal character away from the act.

By whatever bizarre logic, Rod Snyder and the West Virginia Democrat party have overtly chosen to undermine and insult the intelligence of the voting constituency of West Virginia’s 67th House district by attempting to obfuscate the rather obvious satirical nature of Rattler’s successful run in the comedy/parody-music scene and Riley Moore’s role therein. The logical fallacies are quite unfortunate, as they expect voters to believe that Mr. Moore actually subscribes to the over-the-top culture of 1980′s rock and hair metal. By extension, Mr. Snyder and his cohorts must also believe that Eddie Murphy is a loose cannon at his law enforcement job, Harrison Ford is impossibly reckless at archaeology, the Undertaker must get a lot of time off from the mortuary in order to wrestle that much, and that Matthew Broderick has a terrible high school attendance record.

To be clear, the mission statement that the group presented to me before working together was that they intended to skewer the ridiculous culture of 1980s rock and roll/hair metal by parodying acts such as Poison, Def Lepard, Mötley Crüe, Whitesnake, et al. The live shows were to be the ultimate execution of this tongue-in-cheek creative vision, whereas the audio recordings were issued as merchandise that in turn generated the revenue needed to build increasingly elaborate set pieces and acquire period-appropriate costumery (tights, makeup, wigs, vintage t-shirts and jackets). When the group’s hard work met their creative vision, the results were phenomenal. Many thousands of individuals came from far and wide to pack performance halls in the spirit of having a laugh at one of our nation’s most ridiculous decades.

Never once prior to Snyder and the WVDP’s flailing attempts at forced outrage did we ever encounter consumers not grasping the rather obvious satirical scope of the group and their performances.

Unlike Rod Snyder and his real-life fake act, it’s clear that Riley Moore is a House candidate focused on actual ISSUES in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.

As a label and as an individual, I wholeheartedly endorse Riley Moore as the kind of public representation that the fine state of West Virginia needs.

Director, Magic Bullet Records

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA & BLEACH EVERYTHING: Heavy Metal Suicide Streaming At No Clean Singing, Featured At Fangoria

Gehenna-Bleach Everything both covers_web

Magic Bullet Records will release the new Heavy Metal Suicide split 7” between nihilistic West Coast hardcore faction, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA, and cross-country-based horror hardcore/punks, BLEACH EVERYTHING, pairing two intensely physical bands comprised completely of dyed-in-the-wool DIY punk lifers.

With the EP about to make its parole into society, No Clean Singing is now streaming Heavy Metal Suicide, issuing in part of BLEACH EVERYTHING’s side, “their three tracks adhere to the philosophy that less is more — these are short, explosive flurries of bare-knuckled battering,” and offering that THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA’s tracks, “manifest different sides of this band’s violent, hate-filled blend of metal and hardcore,” and, “will indeed fuck you up.”

Get damaged by Heavy Metal Suicide RIGHT HERE.

Also this week, Fangoria Magazine featured a track from the BLEACH EVERYTHING side alongside an interview with the band/label owner; check it out HERE.

For maximum impact across the audio-visual spectrum, Heavy Metal Suicide was mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and is packaged within the bleak and non-subtle artwork of Chris Norris (aka Steak Mtn), with two cover color variations pressed: white/black/red and blue/black/red. Three vinyl colors (red, blue, white) round out the first pressing of this violent pairing. The split sees release this Friday, August 5th through Magic Bullet Recordspreorders for the blue cover 7” are available HERE, the white cover 7” HERE, and digital preorders can be placed HERE.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA notes of their diseased portion of the split, “Rebellion. Pain. Noise. War. Famine. Addiction. Disease. Death. Negative Hardcore. This is what makes THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA and what THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA makes.”

BLEACH EVERYTHING offers on their behalf, “We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to pair up with a band as pure, real, and as uncompromising as THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA on Heavy Metal Suicide. It’s hard to do much of anything for two decades, let alone keep together a band that demands and endangers so much of its membership every time out. They are the beating heart for a style of punk that very few can pull off in modern times, so it’s an honor to be the designated driver/lookout on another one of their relentless sonic benders.”

With its members hailing from Reno, Nevada and San Francisco, California, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA has been nihilistically terrifying audiences for the greater part of two decades. Their contributions to Heavy Metal Suicide continue to thematically blur the lines between DIY and DUI with song titles on brand new scorchers “Looking To Score” and “Get Fucked Up!” Both tracks capture a point in the band’s ongoing lyrical narrative of life and death where there is hardly any separation between the two and both are acceptable (so long as there is an escape therein). Recorded by former Integrity member Rob Orr, this documentation captures THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA right where you want them: needing to up the dosage from last time in order to get your fix.

Now scattered between Virginia and California, BLEACH EVERYTHING turns in their third release (and second split) to date, this one fully embracing the tried and true philosophy of “short, fast, and loud,” with each song hovering around the minute flat mark. Thematically, the band tackles topics like inauthenticity (“Witch, Please”), the environmental militancy of particular Godzilla rivals (“Silk And Scales”), and the strange phenomenon of many American adults attempting to address their inner voids with incessant breeding (“Human Mulligan”).
