Band Presses Vinyl Record On Chocolate

1The glitch-y electro tunes by Scotland’s Found seem perfectly fine, but the real treat is their groundbreaking edible, playable vinyl pressing. Ah, art meant to be consumed with all five senses — is this the future of physical product for the music industry? Via DesignTAXI:

This record can easily go from turntable to coffee table. Scottish band Found, looking for an inventive new way to release a new single, baked up a sugary idea: to press the 7” record on chocolate.

The band enlisted the help of a friend, baker Ben Milne who, after several failed attempts, managed to successfully created the Willy Wonka-like treat; the entire record, including the paper label, is edible. While not audiophile quality by any stretch, the chocolate disc plays a decent version of the band’s “Anti-Climb Paint” single.

  1. Does it sound as good as it might taste? I bet its all waxy-textured.

    ’70s dance-pop group Blondie once did a promo issue of their album “Eat to the Beat” pressed in licorice.

    /would like to see a pasta record even if it was fragile like a 78

    If I still had a turntable, I wouldn’t play this record on it. Good way to completely destroy the needle and cartridge.
    Those things ain’t cheap.

    Ummmm, no.

    • It’s a gimmick. By making it out of chocolate, they’ll get far more press than if they were to just make a cd like every other generic band out there. The benefit here is that pretty much no one will hear the music so we won’t have to care how it sounds.
