Northern premiere screening. Launched in Denver in 1975, founders Jim Nash & Dannie Flesher moved their small independent record shop, Wax Trax! Records, to Chicago in 1978 which quickly became a Mecca for fans looking for international New Wave, Punk Rock and Experimental music scenes that were being brought into the US for the first time. Wax Trax! then branched out into a quasi-legitimate record label. The release of Cold Life by Ministry set the stage for Wax Trax! to become America’s pre-eminent experimental label of the 1980’s and 1990’s.
