While mentioning Gilles in the last post, I checked my email and found my August newsletter from his own Brownswood Recordings label and it opened with the below paragraph.  It's such a shame and I thought it worthy of passing on to you good people too:

It's been a pretty rubbish week to be honest. The Sony / PIAS fire destroyed all of our stock that was held in the warehouse - we'll survive but it's a bitter blow. The list of independent labels that suffered makes for sombre reading - XL, Ninja Tune, Warp, Domino, Young Turks, Soul Jazz... friends and respected contemporaries. Music fans please support your favourite labels and buy physical product in your local record shop or digitally online at this difficult time.
