Were any Musical Instrument Shops looted ?
Where, and how badly ransacked ??
Any precious vintage guitars, etc, stolen or destroyed ???

Just saw very brief TV News images of thieves running off
with what looked like a bowl backed lute
and a ukelele ????

Rockbottom in Croydon, but I doubt if the scum who ran off with any instruments would know what they had. In any case the shop would have the serial numbers.

Here's one, from today's Daily Telegraph.

"Gunner Liam Bretherton, 20, faces dismissal from the Army after walking into a guitar shop with a valuable Gibson Les Paul just 12 hours after a flagship music store in Manchester had been ransacked by looters.

He was arrested when the owner of the shop became suspicious and checked the serial number on the instrument. He then locked him in the shop until the police arrived.
"

I know there were people suggesting that it would have been a good idea to put soldiers on the street...

Dawsons was the store in Manchester that got trashed and robbed.

One of the newsreels I saw featured a scrote carrying a Fender (or possibly clone) bass guitar - I think it was from Manchester so it was probably from Dawsons.

Is that the shop where rioters broke in and left a whole pile of banjos?

PS - always rather liked Dawsons - I ebought some AKG D880s mics there over 10 years ago and still prefer them to SM58s.

It's definitely a [low quality] screen capture sourced from genuine Sky news riot footage...

We noticed it broadcast yesterday at 2.30pm during the first few minutes of a "Looters" special news interview.

Looks like it might be repeated 4.30 this afternoon ?

Just curious & concerned where it was nicked from..

Any music emporium is a sanctified place of worship
but especially dread to imagine something like the early music shop or hobgoblin
getting randomly ransacked and burnt out by a violent mob
of opportunist half wits..

I understand a thief stole a valuable piano accordion ,but handed himself in after playing a few notes.

Hello,

I followed Your searching of the music of Betsy Rutherford,
did You get her music in the meantime, maybe from her daughter?
If not, it is possible for me to send You a copy of her LP
'Traditional Country Music'.

With kind regards,
Martha
