“Latest update – Sony DADC have actioned their Business Continuity Plan and are back up and running from a new control room in Enfield. PIAS continue to work with them to minimise the impact on the business, a number one priority for all labels and clients. SonyDADC have identified a temporary distribution partner and it is envisaged that they will be in a position to pick, pack and ship orders in the course of next week.
“This follows an earlier statement regarding a fire last night at the SonyDADC warehouse, which services the physical distribution for PIAS in the UK and Ireland. PIAS’s UK offices in London and all other areas of our business are unaffected. More information will be communicated shortly to all our labels and partners.”
The Sony/PIAS distribution centre in Enfield was sadly destroyed in the riots last night in London (8th August).
Big hitters such as Sony had their stock destroyed, but perhaps more saddening is to hear of all the independent labels that have been affected, as this will hit them the most.
We 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 fundraiser event for all the labels affected.
Update: We’ve put together a list of records you should buy to help the labels affected.
