Shoc Wave RECORDS
The label was started in Easton Bristol by Gene Walsh in 1979. The objective was to create a true Independent Record label for the Bristol area and not genre specific.
The first signing was Joshua Moses and the first release was Independence Fever, a calypso release to celebrate the Independence of Dominica.
The Label Manager was Melford Gardener who currently runs the Black Swan on Stapleton Road in Easton and the original offices were in St. Andrews, Bristol.
The label had massive expansion plans with dreams of offices on St Marks Road which would incorporate Recording Studios, Rehersal Rooms, Offices and Post Production suites. Unfortunately the capital could not be raised from the share holders and the label stopped trading in the later 1990s.
The sub publishing company of Unitone Publishing has been renamed Bristol Underground Songs Ltd and still exists being administered by Gene Walsh and Gene is still involved with Joshua Moses and there is a new album in the can awaiting release.
