About this creation



My friends in the band Los Campesinos! have a new album out, No Blues.

The lead single, Avocado, Baby has a brilliant one-take video directed by Craig Roberts:



At 4:25 in the video, you can see the part I chose to depict in the build (and video)





I got to try a few new things in this build: A rich environment for the miniland plus scaled figures, the motion aspect of the band, complex lighting, and a video! Lights provided by Artifex Creations and official Lego light bricks for the spot lights.

Hope you have as much fun watching as I had building!

Those macrofigures are amazing, and the use of cherries for that maskish thing is awesome. Really like that dress too, awesome shaping.

Love that dress! I could totally see Lee sporting something like that on a Saturday night at BW ;). Strangely enough, my favorite part of the build was the "easiest" for you to build/design... the curtain. I dunno why but that just "pops" for me. Great build man, thanks for sharing! ~ Chris.

Quoting Lee Muzzy Great depiction! I really like how the figures can move and the lights are great!
Thanks Lee! Lighting to match the video was a challenge, but a welcome one. ~Dave

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Yikes, that lady has some fruity eyes... ;) Great build, love the multi-media extravaganza.
Thanks LCV! I wasn't sure how to do her pinkish mask until I looked through my new Friends parts... some real gems in there. ~Dave

Quoting matt rowntRee Firstly, Fantastic build with wonderful action. The characters are distinguishable and built with fun personality. Secondly, the motion and lighting you did is fantastic. making videos in Lego is a dream of any kid that grew up in the MTV age with access to this plastic media. To visualize in Lego great music is just too cool. And, lastly, the band is wicked great. Love to hear more of them and your beautiful promotion has duly piqued my interest. Kudos all around!
Thanks Matt! It started as a simple figure project, but then I decided to try a whole bunch of new stuff. I'm so glad you appreciate it. ~Dave

Quoting Dr. Monster Fantastic build. The set is brilliant and the figures are beautifully shaped. It's cool that you know the guys in "Los Campesinos" too. "We throw parties, you throw knives" is a great song.
Thanks Dr.! I'm actually shocked anyone else on here has even heard of LC! ~DK

Quoting Daniel Calleri Nothing better than a build with a sense of style. Nicely done! I like the stage lights and the unified movement. Now you can add 'promoter' to your list of vocations. Cool!
Thanks Dan! I don't know about promoter, but I look forward to sharing this at Brickworld 2014. ~Dave

Quoting El Barto ! Nicely done, Bats! The set looks great ,and cool action for the singers. Your buddies should get a kick out of this!
Thanks Bart! I might need some advice from you on how to motorize the action... you are the master of that as far as I'm concerned. ~DK

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy My very, very, very first thought was 'Kraftwerk', though they have only 4 members. I like that you seem to develop an interest in animation lately.
Thanks Thorsten, I'm pleased you like the build. Just a note - I actually worked out the motion using a gear system, not animation :) ~Dave
