"I'm stoked to release my new video for the song, 'Black'. It's from my new Electric Talon Records album, 'Mobocracy'.
This creepy, austere, exotic, nugget was written and recorded with my Crobot pals, Brandon Yeagley and Chris Bishop. We set out to fuse my vintage 20th century influences and experiences with their funky, groovy 21st century sensibilities. 'Black' is an ominous spanning of two centuries in 5 minutes and 5 seconds."
Waxim “Wax” Ulysses Mekanix is an American musician, songwriter, performer, producer, and founding member of NWOBHM cult rockers Nitro . (Not to be confused with the Hollywood band)
Wax’s perspective and work can best be described as raw, authentic, bold, uncompromising, and disconcerting. Out of a radically transformed America comes a statement from a veteran artist that’s of and for its time. Mobocracy is a focused collection of strident, aggressive, snarling, howling songs that draws on Wax’s decades of experience and influences.
Wax says, “History shows us that artists will not let this kind of tectonic shift in American life pass without comment. I’m just commenting now.”
“While new artists strive to cultivate vintage connective tissue to fuse themselves with that rare genuine original creative source that defines their craft, by virtue of my history, I’m forever linked to this authentic well-spring of inspiration. This type of provenance can’t be synthesized, purchased, or conjured. It has to be earned. Whatever value it carries, I guess I’ve earned it and I’m certainly proud of it.”
