      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

Ninja Tune warehouse fire.

19 posts in this topic

This shit sucks.

http://ninjatune.net...-warehouse-fire

A fire on Monday night in London wiped out the entire stock in the primary warehouse of 165 Independent record labels. The best way to help in the immediate future is to buy an album from one of these labels from a UK digital store, local record shop whilst stocks last or direct from the label. This will enable them to remanufacture CDs and vinyl more quickly, to resupply the record shops who are also affected by the riots. For Ninja Tune it means we have had to put Toddla T album release back to August 22nd and spend a lot of money repressing other titles. It's very sad to know some of our wonderful and more obscure back catalogue titles may never get to be repressed.

Alison Wenham, Chairman and CEO of AIM, the UK's Trade Association for the Independent Music Industry, has also 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."

Although we despise the many gross inequalities and immoral profiteering in our country, it's emblematic of the riots' futility that a warehouse storing millions of units of the unusual, interesting and less commercially minded albums on indie labels was torched. We wish all the other affected labels and our excellent distributor the best of luck. And thanks to all our supporters!

Looks like Lex, Warp, and even G-Unit was affected by the fire.

Crazy how things can just end like that.

There's chatter that some of the small labels who were caught in this may not survive. As such they're asking fans who might have bought vinyl from these labels to go ahead and buy the digital to inject some capital in these small labels who operate w/ this thinnest of margins.

damn shame... when i think of ninja tune i think of Coldcut

They made a compilation cd, with their own tracks but also samples.

i think it's from '91 or '92. this cd came with a music magazine.

this was the shiznit, now i'm still looking for it. anyone who knows what i'm talking about holler pls.

Shakey.. Coincidentally Jerry Dammers is playing at a pub close to me this saturday.. Thinking I'll pop down for a pint and a chat.. I'll try to avoid any questions including 'being kicked out of your own band' content..
