Repress : DOOMRIDERS “Black Thunder” LP

Now in the webstore : DOOMRIDERS Black Thunder LP.

This is another awesome record that can’t ever seem to stop selling. In fact, our distributor has already almost sold through most of this pressing, so quantities for sale via the label are extremely limited. Better to act now if you’re wanting to snag any of these colors!

This time around, we’ve got the following vinyl colors:

• COKE BOTTLE CLEAR
• HOT PINK
• TRANSLUCENT PURPLE

All of these versions turned out rather incredible!

In terms of any differences from previous pressings, the jackets on this one one are standard board stock (previous pressings had clay or news back). Inserts are on white paper. Center labels remain unchanged.

Per usual,  we don’t release pressing numbers on our stuff, so please simply choose whichever color(s) you personally dig and please be sure to actually listen to your purchase.

Copies of this album are now available in the webstore.

Thanks for the support.

Repress : DOOMRIDERS “Black Thunder” LP

Now in the webstore: yet another repress of DOOMRIDERS‘ popular debut LP Black Thunder.

This time around, we ran two variations. First up is something we’re calling “THUNDERSTRUCK.” It’s basically like a deep bruise that turned black. The purples are deep, the blues are throbbing, and some skin peeks through here and there. Dark, dark, dark is the key here. Roughly 250 exist.

The second variation is “PURPLE HAZE.” It’s a lavender/light purple marbly melange of a color. Either way, it’s entirely based on the background haze of the front cover at that Jebb painted. I thought it would be really cool to have the record itself look like an extension of that since we never really had that before on this title. Again, about 250 of these exist.

Nerdiness: this is the first run of Black Thunder to feature standard white 1c1s board stock on the LP jacket. Previous runs all had clay-coated news back. If you care about this, you’re missing the fucking point and need to listen to more of your records instead of “collecting” them.

Copies of both variations are in the webstore now. The band also has some copies that you’ll be able to purchase at future shows.

Thanks!

FORENSICS : 12/22/05 set from Philadelphia, PA

As a thank you to the overly-kind people who sent in some wonderful sentiments after the last post about FORENSICS calling it a day, I went back through all of the video people had sent me over the years and uploaded a live set from 2005 that I feel accurately represents the band both at its best and in the precise context that we initially strove for via the hard work we put in on the front end.

The year was 2005, we were on a great trip with friends who comprised two incredible bands (DOOMRIDERS, CAVE IN) and consistently playing rooms stuffed full of appreciative, open-minded people. We played the songs passionately and we had an absolute blast getting to spend time together on the stages and off. Just watching this clip… and seeing Santos’ uncompromising precision and intensity, Andy’s swaying groove, and George’s calm cool (accentuated with the occasional awesome youth crew jump or kick) takes me back to a warm, urgent time. In many ways, that era was the high water mark for what the band could be and I’ll always look back fondly at those days.

I hope you enjoy this blast from the past. On Friday, Andy and I will be doing this all one last time in Richmond, VA (see shows section) with Graham on guitar and Brad on drums. Both of those guys have logged the past few years of shows and recordings for the band and we’re all glad to have had our time as the final four members.

Come Saturday, Andy, Graham, and myself reunite with George and embark on an entirely new path alongside our friend Eric Richter. I sincerely hope that all who have been supportive of our individual and collective works of the past will continue on with this particular chapter in our musical journeys. I couldn’t be more excited. – Brent

Magic Bullet 2010 Year-End Podcast Available for Free Download!

As 2010 nears its end, reflection mode has kicked in and I’m realizing what an unbelievable year it’s truly been. If anyone were to tell you that CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE, INTEGRITY, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, and CHARLES MANSON would not only have records on the same label, but all in the same year, it’s not very likely that you could envision any scenario where that were possible. And yet that somehow happened. CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE‘s S/T (aka The Stereo Record) was unearthed and remastered, INTEGRITY gave us two of the greatest songs the band has ever written, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS brought their latest studio record over here (our first certified gold record!), and we somehow locked down four previously unheard CHARLES MANSON records for release.

This was all on top of a band new THIS WILL DESTROY YOU pic disc, a YEARS double album, MADE OUT OF BABIESThe Ruiner finally seeing LP treatment, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP‘s debut full length Moondrifts, MEDITATIVE SECT‘s Laceration Points LP, a letterpress/reissue edition of FORENSICSThings to Do… LP, FORENSICS You Don’t Have to Win, But You Have to Fight, and represses galore.

Basically, a lot of shit went down and I fully understand if it was tough to keep up with everything. As a means to show appreciation and perhaps even make sure that nothing slipped through the cracks in your search for new music, I stayed in (this is not a new phenomenon) and put together a podcast (this is a new phenomenon) featuring about 80 minutes of jams and commentary. You can pull it down from:

http://www.magicbulletrecords.com/freebies/mbr2010pod.zip

The show features plenty of highlights from 2010, some crucial 2009 stuff you may have missed, and a look ahead at 2011. Bands featured: DISAPPEARER, CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, CHARLES MANSON, INTEGRITY, FORENSICS, DOOMRIDERS, YEARS, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, MEDITATIVE SECT, GOLDEN CITY, A CITY SAFE FROM SEA, JESUIT, SSORC, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, and MADE OUT OF BABIES.

It was fun making this and I hope you enjoy listening to it.

Happy Holidays,
Brent
