well i watched CNBC and the aftermath of Mark Duggan's death is ultimately scary, reminds me a lot to the chaos of Jakarta's 1998 riot. Hopefully everybody's here in UK, particularly London, are safe.

 

Please report here if there are any good development of the current crisis there

Seems quieter here today (I work in London and travel up at 6 a.m), but yesterday was chaos. Even on the trains on the way home there were hooded groups trying to rob people, in broad daylight. I got to the train station and had two teenage kids ask me to hand over my phone to them! This has now spread from the rougher parts of London to other parts of the country, even quite civilised cities (like Kent and Northampton). Crazy times.

Wouldnt have thought they'd want that brick :P

 

Yeah, its been pretty crazy stuff. Pretty much 90% of the goings on has absolutely nothing to do with protesting over an unlawful killing, but more just opportunist looting and criminality. Most of these people are just waiting for an excuse to vent their anger and hatred of society in general. Very sad state of affairs.

 

Thankfully I live some distance outside London and only work in the City so have been largely unaffected by the riots but I do feel very sorry for the innocent people who have had their livelihoods &/or homes destroyed by these thugs.

We had a few idiots here yesterday trying to cause trouble in MK, but the cops went in and broke heads (which they should have done in general days ago to be honest). Great fun to watch from my little red van as one of the scumbags got one right in the mouth from a rather large copper and started crying. Not much else here thank god, but I know parts of London and Manchester have had their moments shall we say. I think (and hope) the worst is over and these scumbag 'youths' get what will be coming to them. Glad to hear everyone is ok.

Haha! That's a cracking story Jez, I think everyone would like to see them all "twatted over" somewhat! Watched the Manchester bit on the news and it didn't seem there were as many as in London. I believe there were around 100 - 150....out of a city of 5 - 6 million ..... not bad should be able to sort it. Me I'd start using bullets ... real ones, if your there 30 mins after the trouble starts then obviously your there for 1 reason. Again as in good ol' London the Mancs community spirit came together and the centre was awash with people helping the tidy up from what I believe.

 

Not trying to get on a political pedestal here but all the do gooders saying you can't discipline a child have this at their feet, a lack of respect for authority for teachers, police or anyone but those who should have the authority don't have any powers to deal with miscreant kids. Add to that the Labour party who have deliberately created an underclass with their endless welfare payouts for people "who don't fancy working", an underclass created with the sole pirpose to ensure them votes in the polls have it at their feet too, pandering to the law on human rights is bollocks too, it's just a paycheck for lawyers but you can bet these scrotes will say their rights have been impinged somewhere along the line. At the end they and many of their parents are scumbags, dogs breed dogs...sterilise them too because they'll only breeed the same. They interviewed a couple of the looters on Radio Manchester and they could hardly string 2 words together .... the thick fucks didn't even seem to realise the contempt the reporter had for them...jeez for a hunting license!

Harsh words, but absolutely true. Parents don't seem to want to raise their children. Instead they hand them over to the Almighty God of TV, Music and Video Games. Then they want to blame those mediums for poorly influencing the youth while they continue to neglect to teach their children how to be a proper, civilized, contributing member of society. As much as I wanna beat some of these kids with a lead pipe, my anger is primarily directed at the assholes who neglected to raise them. I work with a lot of kids in this particular situation. My heart bleeds for them. They don't seem to have a chance.

I was messing with the sterilization bit...I thought I'd throw that in to create a bit of contraversy I'm not some complete right wing nut job haha! But honestly you see these types everyday swearing at their kids, abusing people who complain about their objectional behaviour, wrecking communities with their behaviour and dragging everything down with them, why on earth would you want to live like that - it's not just a poverty issue, in the depressions of the past no-one was this feral, it's a case of lack of moral guidance and a lack of any consequence when they do something wrong - these people know they're doing wrong but they don't give a fuck. Their kids have no chance in life and you truly have to feel sorry for them, but the thing is because of their lazy assed and complacent parents they know no better.

Pity .... who know what these kids could have done given a decent upbringing and some good moral guidance, they could have added something to the world rather than drag it down.

Been watching this on the news here in the U.S. -- insanity!! I'm glad to hear that the cops are finally "busting heads."

 

Saw this bit on Facebook this afternoon... apparently these idiots burned down a warehouse in London that served as a U.K./Ireland distribution hub for most of the major independent record labels ... so these small companies just watched all of their stock go up in smoke. :angry:

London rioters set fire to the UK and Ireland’s largest distributor of independent labels this week, burning CDs and vinyl belonging to over one hundred and sixty independent labels.

 

The Sony/PIAS distribution warehouse, which formerly stood in the Enfield neighbourhood of London, was burnt to the ground in the early hours of Tuesday morning (9 August), leaving a crippling amount of music labels with no stock.

 

WARP Records (Sheffield), Faith and Hope (Manchester) and Dance to the Radio (Leeds) have all been affected by the blaze, with Beggars Group (Matador, XL, Rough Trade, 4AD, True Panther, Young Turks, Too Pure) in London losing their entire UK stock – 750,000 copies, in all.

 

Deeply saddened that the independent music scene, an already-fragile sector of society, has been so massively hit, we spoke to Simon Raymonde of London-based label Bella Union (Fleet Foxes) and Sean Adams of music website DrownedinSound to find out what we, as music fans, can do to help get indie labels back on their feet…

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
