Important Information for Labels & How To Support The Independent Community Following The PIAS Distribution Warehouse Fire

The London riots have caused the destruction of a warehouse in North London housing many of the UK's independent labels and artists.  All the stock has been destroyed in the fire.  This will lead to much hardship for the artists and labels affected. 

AIM member labels should contact with their immediate concerns. AIM is doing what it can to support all those affected at this difficult time.

Music fans can show their support for the independent label community, and help them survive this disaster, by buying a digital download of an album from any one of the digital retailers in the UK, as well as going to their local record store whilst stocks last.

This way the labels will be able to remanufacture their CDs and vinyl more quickly, to resupply the record shops who are also affected by the riots.

Alison Wenham, Chairman and CEO of AIM, the UK's Trade Association for the Independent Music Industry, commented: " This is a disaster for the music community, but with the fans' help, labels and artists will survive.  Please show your support for the music community by buying a digital album from an independent label today."
