Band release edible and playable chocolate record
Edinburgh-based three-piece ‘Found’ worked with a local baker to produce the chocolate disk version of their single ‘Anti Climb Paint’ which can be played in any record player.
After several weeks of trial and error, baker Ben Milne was able to make the working chocolate record by using the same negative metal templates used to produce vinyl versions.
While you will only get around ten ‘recognisable’ plays out of the record before it wears down, you can always munch it. And even the sleeve and label are edible having been made from rice paper and icing sugar respectively.
Ben, of the Fisher & Donaldson bakery, reckons people will get around 10 plays from the record before it wears down. Of course once it has worn out you can always eat it.
Ben added: “I heard that vinyl is on the increase and that CDs are on their way out, so chocolate records could be part of a resurgence and people getting their record players out of their attics.”
Unfortunately only fifty of the chocolate 7″ singles are being produced.
