The 20,000 square metre SonyDADC warehouse, home to music and video distributor PIAS Distribution, was burned down last night during the latest round of riots in London.

The warehouse - which houses the majority physical releases from over 150 independent labels including Domino, 4AD and Warp - was badly damaged, although the full extent of the damage has not been revealed.

Sucks

These guys are working hard to get music out there, just to get burned down by ignorant bastards who have no idea what they are rioting about or even why they are rioting

Can't even believe what's happening here in the UK. People are copying this in other cities now too, I just hope that it's stamped out before it gets worse.

Also, this news is really sad

"The record label run by the ironically-named BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank loses all its records the fire at the Sony warehouse." Sorry but this made me lol a little.

This is pretty bad news, not only just for the warehouse, but for the targeted private houses as well...

Those riots are really moronic, they don't have a reason anymore either; it's just "Hey let's all be morons and break stuff!"

At first I was hoping some grassroots political movements could reign in the riots to turn them into something a bit more progressive and focused, but now it's clear that this shit is just for giggles. The unemployed are biting the hand that feeds them, and it looks like taxpaying Londoners are going to be footing the bill once more.

Sadly, there's no coverage of this in the US, really. We're too upset about being downgraded by the S&P to give a rat's ass.
