Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records



This last Saturday, September 29th, 2018 the Calgary International Film Festival was running, and fortunately they were showing the Wax Trax! documentary "Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records" directed by Julie Nash. I was hoping there would be a showing here... and alas, there was! If you don't know, Wax Trax! Records was a legendary record store and label in the 1980s-1990s in Chicago that was pretty much at the forefront of the Industrial music scene in the U.S.. Some legendary acts were signed to the label; Ministry, Front 242, KMFDM, PIG, Front Line Assembly, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Revolting Cocks, 1000 Homo DJs... etc. Wax Trax! was quite important for breaking fourth wave (mostly guitar driven) industrial music in the U.S.. The documentary takes you through the history of where Wax Trax! came from to its final days where TVT in the end ended up buying them out. There's interviews with Al Jourgensen, Trent Reznor, Paul Barker, Richard 23, Dave Grohl, and a bunch of others. At the time, when Wax Trax! was around I was too young to really appreciate the music that was coming out from that label, but I do understand and recognize the importance of that label in industrial music history... and it was great to finally see the story of how Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher opened a small record shop and then see it evolve into a legendary record label in the industrial scene. I think things like these (like this documentary) are very important to our scene, and I think it's important to know the history of our scene and where things came from, and I encourage anyone in our scene to look into our goth/industrial past and learn something about not only the scene, but yourself too! I walked away from the movie feeling inspired, and I hope you do too! If you haven't seen this documentary yet, and there is a showing in your city, definitely go and see it!!
