VariousIndustrial Accident – The Story of Wax Trax! Records ... CD
Wax Trax, 1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little companion to the excellent film about the famous Wax Trax record store and record label – a set that brings together rare and unreleased material from some of the artists who made the company legendary back in the day! The album's the first in many years to bear the Wax Trax name – and it's like a great leap way backwards, past the darker later days of the label – to a time when the Chicago imprint was a wellspring of creative activity in the darker side of the spectrum – and a key link between our city and underground scenes around the globe. Titles include "Animal Nation" by Revolting Cocks, "Envoye" by Young Gods, "Me & My Ding Dong" by Pankow, "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (acid & flowers mix)" and "Acid Xians" by My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, "Leben Tod" by Laibach, "I Want More" by Fini Tribe, "Vogue (apart version)" by KMFDM, "Shipwreck" by Chris Connelly, and "Tonight We Murder (orig version)", "Cause We're In Love Again", and "Everyday Is Halloween (live)" by Ministry.

✨✧ Nightmares On WaxSmoker's Delight ... CD
Warp/Wax Trax, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal set from Nightmares On Wax – a record that somehow managed to set a style for a whole generation, yet also stand above most of the rest that followed! There's a depth here that's different than both the more abstract rhythmic scene that came before, and the downtempo world to follow – and these guys do a great job of mixing things up, yet still sounding unified in their vision – on titles that include "Praying For A Jeepbeat", "Mission Venice", "Bless My Soul", "Time To Listen", "Tha Journey", "Dredd Overboard", "Pipes Honour", "Me & You", "Stars", and "Rise". CD

✨✧ Strike UnderOne Eye/Damaged Goods ... 7-inch
Wax Trax, 1980. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two fantastic tracks from this important Chicago punk group – both recorded live on the city's WZRD radio station! "One Eye" has the group really stepping off from the sound of their better-known 12" EP on Wax Trax – slowing down the pace, picking up the bass, and mixing together some dubby elements with their sharp guitar work – backed here by a superb cover of the Gang Of Four classic "Damaged Goods" – given a nice Chicago-styled punk rock twist! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brian ShanleyDodged & Burned – Seminal Rock Photography 1976-1984 ... Book
HoZac, 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 20.00
An incredible document of the punk and post punk era live music scene in Chicago by Brian Shanley – a photographer and designer who shot so many iconic bands and did design work for Wax Trax Records early on – and this book of his black & whites is pretty breathtaking if you have even a passive interest in punk or Chicago live music history in general! It captures some of the earliest Chicago appearances by solo era Iggy Pop,The Ramones, Bauhaus, Pere Ubu, Patti Smith, Motorhead, The Dead Boys and so many more, pics from some of the legendary suburban Chicago gigs in Wheeling and Schaumburg by punk bands back in the day with gigs in the city proper were harder to get, shots of seminal Chicago bands like Skafish and Tutu & The Pirates around town, shots of X in their own LA stomping grounds, Television and others at their CBGBs home base – it's one amazing shot after another here. After a short foreword and intro the book is almost all photos, every one of them vital. Book

VariousShake The Foundations – Militant Funk & The Post Punk Dancefloor 1978 to 1984 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99 38.99
A funny thing happened to British music after the initial explosion of punk in the late 70s – it got surprisingly funky, in all sorts of weird ways that helped the new music cross over to the dancefloor – maybe inspired by American funk and soul, but coming off with a very different vibe overall! The basslines are key – and some of these groups really make amazing use of the brooding sounds of the instrument, picked up a few notches in pace – while others might include some snapping drums that could come as a surprise if you were expecting things to only stay in the moody dark corners of the postpunk universe! This package is a great overview of the way the groove picked up on the UK scene at the end of the 70s – very different than American disco, and with an offbeat current that then influenced the New York scene in the early 80s, and went on to have ripples in Chicago, both for Wax Trax and the early house music artists too. 3CD set features a very detailed booklet of notes – and 49 gems by artists who include The Passage, Blue Rondo A La Turk, A Certain Ratio, Tones On Tail, Kissing The Pink, Thomas Leer, Fashion, Wide Boy Awake, Vicious Pink, Modern Romance, C Cat Trance, Animal Magic, Surface Mutants, Furniture, Pop Group, Machine Gun Hogg & Co, Glaxo Babies, Family Fodder, London Underground, Nightmares In Wax, Haircut 100, 23 Skiddoo, Ian Dury, Shock, Visage, Paul Haig, and others.
