-Wanted to check in with you all and share a few things that are happening with some of our favorite artists.
Just released is a really nice documentary of Mr. Luc van Acker done for Belgium TV….Of course it’s primarily in Flemish but for all us non-Flemish speaking folks, we have some great vintage footage of Luc to check out…As well as some great comments from Richard 23, Paul Barker and Chris Connelly (filmed during the Retrospectacle weekend).
you can find the Youtube link Here
Also- For all the Chris Connelly fans out there, be sure to check out his latest CD, “Artificial Madness” it’s fantastic! He will be kicking off the release of the new album with a live show on Dec. 8th at the Hideout in Chicago. Hope to see you there!
You will find details and directions on the Hideout website.
Okay-I know this has been out there for a while, but wanted to mention an interview with a nice deconstruction of Ministry’s “The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste”. The Nov. issue of DECIBEL magazine has Chris, Paul, Al and Bill talk about what was going on behind the scenes during the evolution of this pivotal landmark album.
You can read more about the interview here
Last but not least….This past April’s Wax Trax! Retoespectacle has been nominated for concert of the year on legendary Chicago radio station WXRT.
We already KNOW that it was the best concert event of the year (…maybe the decade!) but if you want to show the world your Wax Trax! love, feel free to vote for us
on the WXRT listener’s poll
That’s it for now. Be sure to keep an eye out for new and additional vintage merch at our store starting in mid December (including one of our classic shirt designs from back in in the day)
Have a great holiday week and good luck surviving a food coma on the 24th,
