BLACK WAX LAUNCHES NEW RECORD LABEL WITH CHINESE JUNK
They are the punk rock equivalent of junk food. Cheap and nasty and so damn great. They’re bad for you, addictive as hell and as repetitive as acid reflux. They don’t write songs about pretty things, they write about crappy things. Mostly under two minute ditties about crappy jobs, discount stores, living in a dead end town, bargain bins and human trash. Ladies and genitals, I present you with your new heroes of low budget rock ‘n’ roll, the new purveyors of power flop and the “Kings of Pound Shop Rock”… CHINESE JUNK! Formed in the suburbs of London loosely in 2019 and properly in 2020 (the year the world fell apart), CHINESE JUNK features members of the Griswalds, The Ulcers and The Unreleasables.
Adam Smith – A record label has been on the cards for a while, and with live music on hold, now is the time to launch the Black Wax Noise Division and end 2020 on a high. I’m well chuffed that our first release will be the Permanent Reduction EP. It’s too good to be restricted to digital formats – your turntable deserves some CHINESE JUNK!
Issue: 150 on black wax with picture sleeve and insert 100 on coloured wax in company sleeve

Following requests for some of the previous Heritage campaign shirts to have a reprint we’ve decided to make them generally available along with a whole range of Black Wax merchandise. The bags are the perfect size for your records, and some shirt designs are now available in ‘girlie’ fit. It’s also that time of year to bring out our Reindeers Ramones tribute Christmas T-shirt, now also available as a girlie, bag and hoodie! Find them in the shop.
