WaxTrax! Records cofounder Dannie Flesher dies at 58


The music that WaxTrax! brought to the world in the 80s and 90s was really important to me in the latter decade. I’ve seen a fair number of the former WaxTrax! performers, even helped some along the way. I’m sorry to see that both of its founders are gone now.

I love this line from the article: “In a 1991 interview with the Tribune, [WaxTrax! co-founder Jim Nash] laughed at the notion that he and Flesher were businessmen. ‘We’re in the business of chaos,’ he said.”

I am a resident of the Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a member of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. That sometimes comes up on here, as it's kind of a small part of my life. No official county business happens here. I'm mostly using this now to give a rough draft account of how we're dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. God help us all.
