Round-the-clock news coverage notwithstanding, to Americans the rioting in England over the past few days can seem pretty remote. Unless you’ve got friends or relatives caught up in the destruction, it might seem like nothing more than a Clash song come to life (and I’ve seen a lot of commentary on the Internet today, especially Twitter, that doesn’t rise above that level). This morning, however, a piece of news went out that made it a little easier to feel the effects of the violence here in Chicago: several local record labels have suffered disastrous losses in a London fire.
