PIAS music distributor (incl. SOD) warehouse burnt down in London

PIAS is a distributor for SideOneDummy (see the list of labels reproduced at http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4299987)

I have now idea if any SideOneDummy stock has been affected.

This is absolutely terrible.

Seriously. What is any of this going to prove? That we as humans can be as un-civil as possible?

Huh. I don't see the point of indiscriminately burning shit down, but I guess I'm just an ignorant American?

Charlie Simpson new debut album has been postponed in realease because of this also. The youth rioting moan about unemployement yet burn down buisness'. I hate my country sometimes, it seems at times we take a huge step beckwards in society. The rioters are ridiculously close to pure savages

a Horrible Crowes mention

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/music_blog/2011/08/london-riots-takes-potentially-disastrous-hit-on-indie-music-.html


Quote :
extract:

The 215,000-square-foot North London facility, separate from Sony's music operations, held current and catalog stock from about 150 labels distributed by PIAS, including Beggars Banquet, Sub Pop, Thrill Jockey, Domino Records and L.A.'s SideOneDummy.

"Our biggest territory in Europe just went down indefinitely," said Bill Armstrong, a co-founder of SideOneDummy.

Armstrong was awaiting word on exactly how much inventory the label had in the PIAS warehouse, but estimated it could be as much as 20,000 units. In September, the label will have a relatively big release from the Gaslight Anthem side project the Horrible Crowes. As of Tuesday afternoon, Armstong was hoping the new product never made it to the PIAS warehouse.

"From our perspective, it's just, 'Wow'," he said. "We have recordings coming out in the U.K and we have bands on tour and we don't know how long our supply chain will be locked up."

Make me sick. I'm all for people power, and focused riots etc but not like this, these guys are so anti-punk it's untrue. What they're doing is not political anymore it's mindless violence, if it was political they'd be rioting at police stations and government buildings, not burning random stuff and ruining ordinary peoples lives.

From Brian's Twitter:

"You burned down an independent record distribution center, and one young man is dead. This is not the way. Google MLK JR."

Can't believe whats going on in this country - all the things people could riot about and these thugs seem to have no intentions or motives other than to steal and burn.

I wonder whether this will delay the release of Elsie? I hope not.

charlie simpsons debut record 'young pilgrim' is being distributed by the same factory as elsie and the release date for it is this monday and it wasnt delayed so i think probably not. however because elsie is being released on S1D the stock might have taken a bigger beating

Does this warehouse receive all SideOneDummy records that are to be sold in Britain because I have preordered through Play.com and I'm not sure whether Play's stock comes from this warehouse or direct from the US?

considering play.com all i know is that they ship all their unders from jersey. because of tax haven and such. so im not sure if they get their orders from the PIAS warehouse and then distribute that way? best hope is that play.com already have the albums at their warehouse ready to distribute but that seems unlikely for some reason...
