From humble beginnings in the bible belt to Chicago, Illinois, Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher built one of the most influential American independent record labels: Wax Trax! which would evolve into a record store and music label like no other. The label became the nexus of the new wave, punk rock and industrial music scenes, and was America’s preeminent industrial label of the 1980s and ’90s, releasing records by Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, COIL, Chris & Cosey and many more. This is a remarkable tale of two men’s music obsession and the creation and crumble of their personal and professional empires.

My dad and Dannie were two men who fostered and valued a community where people could be themselves no matter how absurd. That was always a cornerstone of Wax Trax! Records and probably why it still resonates with some today. The fact that they were two music and art obsessed fans who happened to be gay with no apologies was inspiring to many going through their own struggles.' Director, Julia Nash.
