PIAS warehouse destroyed in London Riots...
If you've been watching the news over the past few days, you'll be aware of the looting and burning of businesses/shops/homes across London.
I've just found out that amongst those, the Sony/PIAS distribution centre in Enfield was sadly destroyed in the riots last night (8th August).
Whilst it's upsetting to hear Sony had most of their stock destroyed, I'm even more gutted for the independent labels who also housed their stock there. Amonst those include Ninja Tune, All City, Warp and Dirtee Stank, to name a few.
Like 4O5, I suggest you check out the list of labels affected below, and buy one of their records digitally. Also make sure to follow @fionchadd on twitter as she's organising a PIAS fundraiser event, or email her here. If you're a musician or a DJ, make sure you show some support.
