BBC plays steampunk band's wax record with fuse wire and mint tin.
The BBC heard about this, and built a machine to play it. For techies, their build is not exactly... good.
The cylinder was recorded by Poppy Records with a mixture of digital computer techno-wizardry and a machine cobbled together from a video recorder and old arcade games.
Played on a properly-built machine, the recordings are surprisingly pleasant to listen to.
