About

Welcome to Chicago's WAX TRAX! RECORDS

Originally Founded in Denver CO in 1975, WAX TRAX! soon moved operations to Chicago and quickly became the center of underground music & art throughout the Mid-West.
Lead by Jim Nash & Dannie Flesher, the store later gave birth to the pioneering music label, exposing the world to a wide catalog of experimental and electronic artists.
Seminal bands such as Ministry, Front 242, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, and Coil all got their US start on the WAX TRAX! RECORDS label.

Although WAX TRAX! as a label is long gone, we have resurrected the legendary record shop, offering the most extensive assortment of private WAX TRAX! collectables & memorabilia found in one spot.

In addition to these titles, we will soon offer many more artists from the personal Nash family collection and archives including our extensive Bowie, Joy Division and Roxy Music collection. These are historic pieces, when they're gone...they're really gone.

So check back often....or better yet, go to our main site for more of the store history, www.WAXTRAXCHICAGO.COM, and subscribe to our news and updates.

To shop, please choose a category or artist from the right...or hit "ALL" to see the complete list of items for sale.

Enjoy!

Julia Nash
