You’ve heard of records that have gone gold or platinum, but now there’s a song that’s gone chocolate.
A baker in Fife, Scotland, has made a record out of pure chocolate. The limited release 7-inch single by the Edinburgh-based band, Found, can be played on a standard turntable and then eaten and enjoyed as you would a good chocolate bar.
Talk about sweet, sweet music.
The record plays the Found song Anti-Climb Paint, and while it’s definitely not a high-def recording, you could dance to it. Its sound quality resembles some of my old LPs from college that were scratched from misuse (back in those pre-CD days of yore).
The idea for a chocolate record came to baker Ben Milne when he and his friends from the band decided they should collaborate on some kind of project. He worked with the band’s management and PR firm to obtain the template used to press the vinyl discs of the song. He worked on it for a while, and eventually got the job done.
After making the chocolate record, he and the band gave it a listen, then a taste, and described the result as “amazing.” Not sure this will start a new food trend or music trend, but it’s pretty cool
Here’s the video of the song, shot in Milne’s bakery.
