Industrial Accident: The Untold Story of Wax Trax! Records

Industrial Accident The Untold Story of Wax Trax! RecordsWax Trax! Films is ready to present its documentary Industrial Accident: The Untold Story of Wax Trax! Records produced and directed by Julia Nash, daughter of co-founder Jim Nash and current president of Wax Trax! Records.

Included in the film are interviews with Al Jourgensen, Franke Nardiello, Jello Biafra, Luc Van Acker, Paul Barker, Ian MacKaye, Marston Daley, Trent Reznor, Richard 23, David J Haskins, Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Dave Grohl, Chris Connelly, Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Steve Albini, Patrick Codenys, Bill Leeb, Ivan Novak, and many more.

The film travels through the underground culture of music and art as founders Jim Nash & Dannie Flesher expose emerging music and artists to fans from around the world for the first time. Through interviews with the artists, the film explores the origins and the label’s work with My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Front 242, COIL, Chris & Cosey, Laibach, KMFDM, PIG, Underworld, Meat Beat Manifesto, Front Line Assembly, Young Gods, KLF, Greater Than One, Clock DVA, Suicide, Psychic TV, Sister Machine Gun, In the Nursery, Foetus, TGT, and Controlled Bleeding. The documentary also deconstructs the arsenal of side projects by Al Jourgensen and Paul Barker of Ministry by artists closest to the projects. True stories of the Revolting Cocks, Acid Horse (a collaboration with Cabaret Voltaire), Pailhead (a collaboration with Ian Mackaye of Minor Threat and Eric Spicer of Naked Raygun), PTP, Lead Into Gold (a solo vehicle for Barker), and 1000 Homo DJs (Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails) are revealed for the first time.
