Sony warehouse burns down in London riots, more than 150 independent labels impacted

As if physical forms of media weren’t already having a tough time in the marketplace, a Sony warehouse in North London storing CDs and DVDs was destroyed this morning during the ongoing U.K. riots. The distribution center was a storage facility for inventories belonging to more than 150 independent labels, including XL/Beggars, Warp, Rough Trade, Domino, 4AD, Sub Pop, Secretly Canadian, Jagjaguwar, Drag City, Thrill Jockey, FatCat, Kompakt, Mute, Ninja Tune, Vice, Soul Jazz, and many more. It’s feared that everything was lost in the fire. [Via Pitchfork]
