Copies of the Record Store Day vinyl up for grabs

One of the rather incredible limited edition releases that caused minor riots in record shops across the land this past weekend was Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 'The Mercy Seat' 12". Handily and happily enough, these were not all snapped up by eager shoppers, and Mute Records have found a few copies down the back of the sofa and instructed us to give them to you, our dear readers. It is, as follows: "An exclusive white vinyl 12” of The Mercy Seat with gold foil stamped sleeve. Here it is available as the remastered original, an acoustic remastered version, live from the Royal Albert Hall and an exclusive live version from the Tate Britain." To win this astounding prize just email with the answer to the following question, contact details and MERCY in the subject heading.

What Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album does 'The Mercy Seat' feature on?

a) Murder Ballads

b) Let Love In

c) Tender Prey
