WaxTrax! rebornThe legendary WaxTrax! Records label will rise from its ashes at the hands of Julia Nash, daughter of original label co-founder Jim Nash. The label’s new incarnation will focus primarily on limited-edition vinyl pressings and special projects from new acts as well as “established artists within the WaxTrax! family,” according to Nash. “This was one of the last important pieces to carry on what my dad and (label co-founder) Dannie (Flesher) started,” Nash says in a news release.
Kicking off the WaxTrax! resurrection is a new 12-inch release from industrial corruption duo and label mainstays Cocksure, the new project featuring Chris Connelly and Cracknation’s Jason Novak. The new vinyl single, TKO Mindfuck will release in mid-June under catalog number WAX 9196, featuring a guest appearance by another past WaxTrax! star: Richard 23 of pioneering industrial/EBM act Front 242. The single first will be offered in an exclusive colored-vinyl pressing that will be limited to 200 copies (with download code); pre-orders will begin in May through the WaxTrax! website. “We have been very careful not to start up the label unless it made sense,” says Nash, calling Cocksure and its new release “absolutely a great fit.”
Julia Nash recently directed the WaxTrax! documentary, featuring interviews with Paul Barker and Chris Connelly (Ministry, RevCo), Richard 23 and Patrick Codenys (Front 242), En Esch (KMFDM), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys, LARD), as well many of the store and label staff. The documentary aims to release in 2014.
