Tony Sylvester - Shellshock Distribution

Tony Sylvester had the classic punk rock DIY introduction to the music biz., playing in bands, producing fanzines, promoting shows and running small labels, until moving onto distribution at Southern Studios in 1994.

Having gained invaluable experience there he moved on to Pinnacle/Strange Fruit to get some ‘proper’ label/licensing experience.  Since then, he has spent time at other distribution companies, managing bands and establishing another small independent label, Eccentric Man Recordings.

He has spent the last four years at Shellshock, in a label management, promotion and sales capacity, all the while, continuing to act as a booking agent, and sing in his band The Dukes Of Nothing. Yes, he does sleep from time to time.
