Domino Records, one of many independent record labels who lost stock in the Sony DADC warehouse fire, has responded to last night's incident.

As violence spread throughout London for the third night running, the Enfield warehouse, which housed stock for independent distributor PIAS, was destroyed. A spokesperson for Domino said:

While relieved that no-one was injured in the incident, we're upset about the loss and destruction of our stock, and thinking of our friends at other independent labels who were also affected by the fire.



The statement included practical information about which records would be affected, records that include the release of Arctic Monkeys single 'The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala', which will now only be available through their website.



In related news, AIM (Association of Independent Music) has asked for music fans to pay for music downloads while artists and labels try to get back on their feet after the huge loss of stock.

What music fans can do to show their support for the indie label community, and help them survive this disaster is to buy 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 while stocks last.



For more information on how to support the labels affected visit the AIM website.

Last night saw the third consecutive evening of rioting, after a peaceful protest in Tottenham on Saturday (August 6) over the death of Mark Duggan during a police operation, turned violent. By last night, rioting and looting had spread to Hackey, Camden, Ealing and Clapham. Violence has also been reported in Birmingham and Liverpool.
