Owner

Bristol Archive Records

Director

Bristol Archive Records
– Present (7 years)

Bristol Archive Records is a record label dealing in Bristol post punk 1977 onwards.
We aim to showcase music from the diverse Bristol Music scene and provide a historical account / document of all things Bristol that should never be forgotten. Many of the artists and releases are rare, unknown or never before released. The material has been lovingly digitally remastered from vinyl, ¼ inch tape, dat or cassette. The original vinyl releases would generally have been limited to runs of 1000 copies or less.

We would like to thank the original label owners and/or the artists for allowing us to share with you their forgotten works and provide a statement of how brilliant bands have always been from the city of Bristol and the surrounding areas.

Director

Sugar Shack Records
– Present (29 years)

Sugar Shack Records was originally set up in 1985 and is the brain child of Mike Darby, a veteran of the Bristol Music Scene. The label has developed over the years into a National but predominantly Rock influenced label and has enjoyed much critical success with Redefine, Left Side Brain, Midasuno to name but a few.

We love music and love releasing records however the industry and the world economy is changing and therefore we may well see more Download Only releases in the Discography going forwards.
