Independent Label Market - Event For Labels Affected By The Sony Warehouse FireIndependent Label Market has announced a special Christmas market in association with AIM, to support the labels who lost their stock in the PIAS / Sony warehouse fire earlier this year.

The rioters who destroyed the entire stock of 165 independent record labels at the Sony Warehouse in Enfield have been charged and held to account for their crimes. But the labels are still feeling the effects of this catastrophe, back catalogues have been wiped out and hundreds of thousands of CD and vinyl sales lost.

On Saturday 10th December, Independent Label Market will bring together the heads of various PIAS distributed labels to sell their wares directly to the customers at that traditional goods exchange - a market stall.

Joe Daniel, founder of ILM and Angular Records said, "We've spent the last couple of months getting back on our feet and I hope this market will be a chance for the labels to recover some of the ground lost in August and September when we had no stock. It will also be a great way to celebrate independent music in 2011 whilst wearing a silly hat and enjoying some nice mulled wine".

There will be a host of exclusive releases, artist appearances and much more from the following labels, who are confirmed for the market on the 10th December.

Angular Records
Big Dada
Chemikal Underground
Double Six
Lucky Number
Memphis Industries
Ninja Tune
Sonic Cathedral
Southern Fried
Stolen Records
Weird World
Xtra Mile

** More labels to be announced

Also the market will be one of the first Saturday markets held in more than one hundred years at Spitalfields. With the famous Victorian market hall decked in Christmas lights, this will make the perfect setting for christmas shopping at 'Independent Label Market: Spitalfields' on 10th December.
