Independent label: Shoc Wave Records 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. Catalogue numbers for 7" records were in the SRP-0000s, and they reached at least SRP-0020. Distributed By UNI-TONE Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
