The Coda Collection has announced the upcoming streaming release of ‘Accidents and Outtakes,’ the rarely seen bonus film to the acclaimed documentary ‘Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records,’ which tells the story of Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher who in 1978 opened a Chicago record store called Wax Trax!, catering to a community of misfits and turned it into the launching pad for the rise of industrial music. Featuring bonus footage, anecdotes and interviews with Trent Reznor, Al Jourgensen, Groovie Mann and more, this sequel film digs deeper into the label’s history and sheds extra light on the Wax Trax! scene and how it became a global movement. The companion film will be available to stream exclusively via The Coda Collection beginning December 10th, 2021, and an official trailer can be seen now here.
Now home to both ‘Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records’ and this bonus film, as well as exclusive editorial content providing additional context for the era and movement, The Coda Collection is the destination for all things “Wax Trax!”
“This is a story about my dad and his partner, their record store and label,” says director Julia Nash. “There were so many interviews that went into making ‘Industrial Accident’ and not all of them would fit into the original documentary. We realized that we had so much other great material that we were able to make a whole second movie. The aesthetic we were going for with the bonus footage is that of an old VHS tape with no label on it. You pop it into the machine and it feels free; like you have a seat in the editing room to see these little stories unfold. I think that there are so many more movies to be made from this one film, and that’s how the bonus material came to be. We just had to cherry pick some of our favorites that we felt were important to tell.”
On December 16th, 2021, The Coda Collection will be partnering with House of Vans to present an intimate screening of the original film with live artist commentary at the House of Vans in Chicago, IL. During the one-time-only screening, artists Groovie Mann and Chris Connelly along with label staff Andy Wombwell and director Julia Nash will give live commentary about the film and their time with Wax Trax!, followed by an audience Q&A. The entire film and commentary will be streamed live online during the WAX TRAX! Channel 66 show.
