£100 to spend. Ten minutes to spend it. One wall of vinyl to spend it on. This is the Record Sweep.
Our crate digging game-show gives contestants ten minutes to spend one hundred pounds at the monster record emporium Vinyl Pimp.
Up next we have our first ever joint effort, courtesy of Stuart Braithwaite and Dominic Aitchison from Mogwai. Since 1995, the Glaswegian post-rockers have managed to record a very respectable eight albums, four soundtrack (including their collaboration with Clint Mansell on The Fountain), two remix records, two EP collections, two live albums and one crushing collection of session work. But how would they get with £100 and just 10 minutes in the Vinyl Pimp cave?
