£100 to spend. Ten minutes to spend it. One wall of vinyl to spend it on. This is the Record Sweep.
Channeling the spirit of Dale Winton / David Ruprecht, our new crate digging game-show gives contestants ten minutes to spend one hundred pounds at Hackney Wick’s monster record emporium Vinyl Pimp.
Previously we’ve had T.E.E.D. and Luke Vibert take on The Record Sweep, watch those here and here.
Next up for the challenge: Music Editor at DICE and Kissability label boss, Jen Long.
We know Jen likes to buy Sonic Youth records when she can, but here’s what she managed to get her hands on in just 10 minutes.
