Wax Trax! Co-Founder Passes Away
- Words: Thomas Rees
Dannie Flesher, co-founder of Chicago's legendary Wax Trax! Records, passed away of AIDS-related pneumonia on Sunday in Hope, Arkansas. With Jim Nash, Flesher helped foster the burgeoning industrial music scene, putting out countless records from the likes of the Revolting Cocks, Front Line Assembly, Meat Beat Manifesto, Coil, and many others. Though the label was bought by TVT in 1992, and was further stymied by Nash's death in 1995, it is still considered by many to be one of the most original labels to ever come out of the United States.
