Remarkable things are afoot over at the YouTube page of Magic Bullet Records — one of the best, most adventurous independent labels currently in existence, led by the incomparable artist/musician/leader Brent Eyestone whose efforts we’ve previously covered here, here, here, and here — where a series of amazing live performances captured on videotape during various revolutionary heavy music moments of the nineties are now being digitized and posted for posterity.
The project — launched at roughly the same time as Eyestone’s new zine, the online component of which is housed at the website of his hardcore band Bleach Everything — should be explored in full, but here are a few of our jaw-dropping favs from the collection.
