Black Wax launches new record label

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. 

I wanted to write and record songs and basically have another musical adventure but without spending any money, or at least very little, doing it. All the songs were recorded in one short session in a practice room on an 8 track recorder and mixed and mastered by our friend for beer and pizza.

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

Provisional release February 2021

Available for pre order from 4th December 2020
