Brian Eno claim[edit]

The record store became a record label slowly at first, initially releasing limited edition records such as Brian Eno's "Wimoweh/Deadly Seven Finns" seven inch.

This claim requires a citation. Limited edition (or bootleg) or not I can find no evidence that "The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh)" and "Seven Deadly Finns" were ever released together on a seven inch single let alone released by what would later become Wax Trax. "The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh)" was released by Island on a seven inch in 1975 with "I'll Come Running (To Tie Your Shoes)" as the B-side. Also, "seven Deadly Finns" was released by Island as a 7 inch in 1974 with the track "Later On" (excerpts from the Robert Fripp collaboration No Pussyfooting) as the B-side. Please delete or provide a citation for the claim that (what would become) Wax Trax released a (what I am guessing was a bootleg) single of "the Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh)" and "Seven Deadly Finns".

Response to "Brian Eno claim"[edit]

The primary source for this information comes from this article:

Also, I own the Brian Eno seven inch in question. It was purchased second hand from a gentleman who bought it at the Wax Trax! store at 2449 Lincoln Avenue in Chicago circa 1979. It is described on the sleeve as published by "Was Trash!" and carries the matrix number "WT 101" on the record itself.

[Can corroborate this post. I also own this single in question. I just updated the Discogs entry for it with the run-out groove matrix numbers.] — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:37, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

More on "Brian Eno claim"[edit]

According to Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music by S. Alexander Reed, "...their first record release was a totally illegal re-pressing of Brain Eno's 'Lion Sleeps Tonight' single in 1979." Citation:

The book also mentions another early 7" called Strange Circuits: Industrial Living. Discogs has a listing for it: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:02, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Logo is copyrighted work of Brian Shanley, not Wax Trax[edit]

When you put my credit, Brian Shanley, on it, it will stop being deleted. Also make it smaller, I don't think this is a fair use as it approaches the size of some original renderings.

More versions available upon inquiry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lexcordis (talkcontribs) 06:15, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

I replaced it with a small version. Credit is already given to Brian Shanley on the file page. You can modify the details there as you see fit. —Torchiest talkedits 12:38, 28 May 2014 (UTC)


I see that you credited Brian Shanley and Jim Nash, but Brian Shanley is the sole creator and copyright holder of this image. Now I have requested wiki to take it down and will escalate from there.

I don't see how to reply to your previous so I have created a new section. Please message me with any further questions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lexcordis (talkcontribs) 18:01, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
