This week, the UK was gripped by riots up and down the country. Thousands of people have been affected, and several small businesses may have to shut up shop for good - and all because of some opportunistic looters smashing up anything in their path.
The PIAS distribution centre in Enfield was burnt down during these riots and many of Britain's indie labels lost valuable stock.
Two people that are particularly close to ABoF's heart are Dan Salter (Echoes And Dust) and Hannah Morgan (Rumour Cubes), who, early in the hours of Tuesday morning, started a Twitter campaign that quickly went viral. They're the people behind the LabelLove - a PIAS Benefit.
We interviewed them on our blog this week to find out more about the campaign.
