2020 SPRING UPDATE

Hello Wax Trax People!

-Hope you are staying sane through all this craziness.

We just wanted to quickly check in and catch you up with things happening here in Chicago.

(ALMOST) IMMEDIATE ACTION
After months of our pressing plant being shut down due to Covid-19, we finally got the green light that the STRIKE UNDER records will be finished soon. Thanks to all of you who pre-ordered the limited editions. I know we’re still living in Bizarro World during this global shut down, but if everything goes as planned, we should be shipping out your records by the end of this month.

To anyone who has been sitting on the side-lines for the 40th anniversary reissue of this first WAX TRAX! release – We still have a few of the RED EDITION with bonus 7” in stock at our online store.
The CLEAR EDITION sold out immediately and just a reminder – These PRE-ORDER EDITIONS will not be available after May – This next week will be your last chance for romance.

TWO TURNTABLES AND A MICROPHONE
We hope you can join us TONIGHT –  WEDNESDAY, MAY 20 as we continue to fight boredom with our live DJ series on our WAX TRAX RECORDS TWITCH channel. DJ BUD SWEET starts the party at 7p and continues to 9p Chicago time (CST). Follow us on TWITCH and you will be notified every time we go live. (Or just tune into the link and watch)
This has been a ton of fun while we all have been cooped up.
Plus – You never know who might just drop in as a future guest DJ.

RARE & READY
Three of the most sought after collectables in the WAX TRAX! catalog are going up for grabs.

KMFDM – APART TEST PRESSING
For those unfamiliar with this little piece of unreleased history from the WAX TRAX! universe, This is the original recording and version for what later became MONEY. We found a handful of these Incredibly rare test pressings and are now offering a them to you at WAXTRAX.COM.

FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY – TOXIC TEST PRESSING.
Here is another moment in history that we have uncovered. This EP was recorded after Caustic Grip and before TNI. It is a perfect bridge between the two eras of FLA. The songs were eventually used as TNI b-Sides, but here she is in all her glory as meant to be heard.

CASH GRAB BOX SET
Yep – We found a few of these beauties left from last year’s tour and thought we’d pass some CASH GRAB LOVE along to a handful of collectors who may have lost out early on…And before we get flooded with email questions – YES, the 2nd bonus 7″ is included.

All these are at our online store and because we only have a few, we don’t expect them to last long!

That’s it for now. Be sure to check out WAXTRAX.COM for more goodies and collectables. As always, join the conversation at the official WAX TRAX! Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and now our new TWITCH streaming page.

Until next time!
