Bitcoin goes Vinyl

Touch Records are launching The Broken Needles’ “Holy Coast” vinyl LP next month at Grumpy’s Green. Fresh off their East Coast tour The Broken Needles, who Rolling Stone referred to as “a wet-season postcard from Psychoville, N.Q”, have embraced crypto currency as “a global way to distribute music, the ultimate global product”.

logo-2Touch Records, Australian vinyl aficionados, teamed up with Broken Needles and CoinJar as a way of testing the bitcoin vinyl market. Depending on the success of this launch they aim to convert their entire catalogue to bitcoin.

The launch will be on the 6th of September at Grumpys Green. Grumpys Green is the classic Melbourne bitcoin pub, where you can get 10% off all pints paid for with bitcoin, as well as half price hot-wings. CoinJar will be there giving away bitcoin to punters to spend on beer, and getting a generation of rock’n’rollers started with their first bitcoin wallets.


There will be local support acts, good music, good beer and a whole lot of bitcoin. Free entry, cheep beer and bitcoin? Better top up your hot wallets.
