A fire broke out today in a historic building housing independent music collective and record label War on Music
. The business is part of the Albert Street Business Block, which contains one of Winnipeg's oldest dwellings. The small strip has a few tiny storefronts built in the 1940s attached to a portion of a 135-year old house.
The label & collective has released albums from Evil Survives, Electro Quarterstaff, including re-issues from Razor, Sacrifice and most notably a split 7 inch
with Winnipeg's Propagandhi
and Toronto's Sacrifice
