Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Thrill Kill Kult To Share Unreleased Material With The Return Of WAX TRAX! Doc + Soundtrack

0 Comment

One side of the 90s were about excess, industrial music, constant touring, and waiting for the next wave of touring to pass through your town. Ministry lead the way with multiple off shots which included the Revolting Cocks. Pigface, Skinny Puppy, NIN, and Chris Connelly, were also part of that revolt against the conformity in music.

Throughout the 70s, 80s, and 90s, Wax Trax! founders Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher led a tribe of outsiders on a ride through the 80s underground, accidentally changing music along the way. Their story, as well as origins for some of the most influential projects in music, are finally seeing light with the release of Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records. The documentary directed by Julia Nash, daughter of co-founder Jim Nash, explores the life and legacy that pioneered an emerging underground scene – industrial dance music. The film features interviews with the likes of Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, Ian MacKaye, Jello Biafra, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Al Jourgensen, Franke Nardiello, Chris Connelly, and more.

A wide release for the documentary is set for April 16 on DVD and Blu Ray with VOD to follow.  As a companion piece, Wax Trax! has compiled 10 tracks of unreleased, out of print and classic songs from essential Wax Trax! artists including Front 242, Ministry, KMFDM and more. In typical Wax Trax! fashion, collectors will be able to get their hands on special editions with additional exclusive unreleased material including answering messages from the label, photos and mystery bonus tracks. As a special collaboration, Wax Trax! has partnered with Record Store Dafor an exclusive RSD edition available early on April 13. More info on editions can be found below.

Wax Trax! has also shared a new unreleased song, “Animal Nation.”

This film not only details the bizarre path and timeline of two men pushing music, art, and counter culture forward, but also an intimate peek behind the curtain of dysfunction and chaos that fueled a brilliant rise to the indie top as well as reasons behind the tragic demise of the Wax Trax! store and label.
