A Sony Digital Audio Disc Corp. building in north London was burned to the ground last night as riots continued in the British capital, according to the London Guardian. The fire destroyed large quantities of music stock, much of it belonging to PIAS, one of the UK’s largest independent distribution companies that served several indie labels, including Domino, Ninja Tune, Rough Trade, and Soul Jazz. On their website, PIAS said, “There was a fire last night at the SonyDADC warehouse which services the physical distribution for PIAS in the UK and Ireland. PIAS is working closely with SonyDADC who are implementing their emergency plans. PIAS’s UK offices in London and all other areas of our business are unaffected.”
