Magic Bullet Records drops Fax Arcana

Sunday, January 02, 2005 7:46 PM PT

Baltimore's Fax Arcana (originally from Indianapolis and featuring former members of Usurp Synapse, among others) have officially been dropped by Magic Bullet Records, with whom they recently released a CDEP/7" and were slated to release a new full-length this year. Specific reasons behind the move haven't been disclosed, but here's a statement by Magic Bullet:

"It sucked having to do this, but Fax Arcana is no longer part of the Magic Bullet family and was given their outright release earlier tonight. Please spare all the 'I told you so's. I am fully aware that you did and don't need to be reminded. Long story short, I've got a ton of Fax Arcana CDEP's and 7"s to unload cheap. After postage, all proceeds will be donated to these organizations: Battered Women's Justice Project, Johns Hopkins' End Violence Against Women Project, Jane Doe Inc., and other various domestic violence causes, particularly those in the Baltimore area. If you have an event/interview/article/whatever pending with Fax Arcana, I would appreciate no further mentioning of Magic Bullet in conjunction with the band. Thank you."

This is definitely weird.

What does this band sound like?

1/2/2005 9:33:57 PM
they sound nothing like usurp synapse. it's more of like an indie rock thing.

whats with this being official news when a label drops a band? i know i dont run this site, and you all are free to report what you deem what, but this is usually a post of alot of negativity towards the band and leaves a bunch of "whats?" to be had.

Singer of Fax Arcana is being charged with attacking his girlfriend and the guy is supposedly a spazz. Fax Arcana, Usurp Synapse and Masters of Obesity were all dropped.

its interesteding to hear stuff like that..i wonder what happened between them..

1/3/2005 7:38:41 AM
Heh...he should be a second singer for my grind band.

its wrong to hit women, i agree....but to not be a buddy and support your band(s)/friends through a tough time is not very man like.

1/3/2005 11:09:42 AM
not to mention, that is a very sensitive subject and to have the world see that they droped a band without a reason will make people wonder what really happened. i know i wouldnt want my personal buisness out in the public. take care.

usurp synapse still fcking owns. and that is pretty gay for a label to drop a band due to personal problems.. but who knows what went on.

Most of you on this thread are idiots

1/3/2005 3:21:00 PM
I see nothing wrong with it. The label doesn't want to put their blood, sweat, and money into something they don't believe in. They don't wany any association with whatever happened in the band.

Its wrong to hit anyone, not just women. Those equal rights advocates must take the shit with the sugar if they want to keep complaining.
