On cassette labels, TRUX can be read under Trax 0682 - Notterossa in red.
Baroni and Ciani's initial plan for the label was to name it Trux, and to title every release/publication Trax followed by date and actual title (like Trax 0682 - Notterossa). The 50% package including Ciani's Mind Invaders 7" from 1981 actually bore the Trux imprint: Mind Invaders - Bootleg
The idea was officially abandoned for being too confusing by the time Trax was born, however this tape still bears the Trux label.

The numbers near some names (Baroni 02, Amok 06, Nocturnal Emissions 07 etc) refer to the membership number as a Trax Unit/official collaborator.
