Some PIAS Records You Should Buy // Donate to PIAS
As reported earlier there was a fire last night at the SonyDADC warehouse which services the physical distribution for PIAS in the UK and Ireland. This will have a major impact on independent labels everywhere, many of whom we deal with every day. We don't wan't anyone to go under due to this.
We've deicded to put together a quick list of about 10 records you should buy. Each image will click through to the labels shop to buy the record.
These 10 records are just a drop in the ocean of the amazing records you could choose from, but if you feel lost and want to help out, feel free to use our recommendations as a guide. Or alternatively, head to the bottom and donate via paypal.
Buying a record will help the labels we all love, and you'll get some music too.
