Peter Gabriel's online music empire is reduced to a holding page, following the theft of servers from his web host over the weekend.
According to the web monitoring firm Netcraft, Gabriel's servers are hosted by Rednet Ltd, although that appears to be a defunct brand of a UK company called Opal Telecom, which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse.
But details are sketchy and as it's a public holiday in the UK, we'll fill in the gaps tomorrow.
In the meantime here is the message posted at time of writing on the web-savvy musician's site, PeterGabriel.com.
Real World, Peter Gabriel and WOMAD web services are currently off-line. Our servers were stolen from our ISP's data centre on Sunday night - Monday morning. We are working on restoring normal service as soon as possible.
