Big Red Shop is your friend

The Quietus is a keen supporter of buying actual records, so we'd like to draw your attention to the rather great service on offer over at Big Red Shop.

They're offering you a price companion service on this year's Mercury Music Prize nominated albums, so you can find the cheapest copy of Primary Colours or any of the other records up for this year's gong available.

Sales of the records just nominated for the Mercury prize skyrocket dramatically, with the winning artist normally receiving a huge boost in popularity - last year's winners Elbow saw sales of their album The Seldom Seen Kid rise by 400% after coming away victorious at last year's bash.
