Christie Front Drive may very well be my all time favorite Colorado band. You should have seen me at the Marquis a few years ago when the band reunited for Denver Fest. I was giddier than a school girl. For years, I've kept my copy of the split 10-inch the act did with Boy's Life in a climate controlled, hermetically sealed case. Yeah, I loved that band. Anyhow, just received word from Brent Eyestone from Magic Bullet Records in Virgina that not only did he just release a record from the Golden City, Eric Richter's latest outfit, but he's about to release the Christie Front Drive discography. Not sure if that means the 10-inch will no longer be a rare commodity or not. Either way, that's plenty reason enough to be stoked.
