The bands Silent Front and Bruxa Maria had a nasty van crash in France that left people hospitalised and the van a total write off. They managed to crowd fund an ambulance to return Matt Cargill (who some of you know) to the UK from a French hospital. The fall-out of the crash has been long and nasty for everyone.
They drove to France to collect the contents of the van once they were allowed to do so and found all of their equipment has been stolen. It's unbelievable and spectacularly shitty of the people who did it and the people denying knowledge.

This happened in BEAUVAIS, France.

French EAers please keep an eye out for this stuff. Some of it is *extremely* recognisable. No details on the drums but assuming they went too along with Bruxa Maria's gear. I'll update if I get more info.

-DeArmond JetStar Guitar - black, white jazzmaster pick up in bridge (this is such a giveaway - there can't be many with this), big chip on body by jack. Very unusual and unique shaped guitar and easy to spot. It was inside a square hard case with SF sprayed on the side in red.

1960s Marshall 4x12. It actually has 4ohm speakers made by Marshall before they started using celestion speakers, so also easy to spot once opened up. tolex ripped and no badge on front. Also with silent front sprayed in red on the back.

HELP THESE STAND-UP DUDES OUT.

Marshall JMP 100W (1979)
:oops:
I would cry like a baby if I lost that one...
On a positive note, this stuff is not run of the mill rock gear. Easy identification.

IIRC the band STNNG used this JMP when they played in London a few years back. Dead Rider too I believe. Killer amp.

Preoccupations (fka Viet Cong) had their van and all of their gear stolen in San Francisco yesterday, after getting robbed earlier in the week in Vancouver.

I haven't seen a list of gear anywhere, but the van is described as "gold-grey 2001 Ford E 350 XLT pulling a black Airdrie trailer"
