Here are a couple of simple props I put together for Daft Punk.
For the video shoots, the guitars were played without audio cables so they needed ”prop” transmitter devices plugged into the audio jacks.
The microphone needed a slick looking stand to clamp onto the acrylic keyboard.
The rotating star field and overhead UFO saucer was built by our set construction team. (nice work guys)
Daft Punk guys….very cool.
Looking forward to the next project…..
Still Steph’s best thrift find. #delorean #thrifted #sweater #bestsweaterever

Keppochill Road, Glasgow. 1968.
A friend of mine owns a car storage garage which is currently home to this lovely mid-sixties 230SL. We took it out for a brief start up and look over. We believe it is all original, even down to the Becker Europa radio. The paint has this wonderfully faded patina that feels like worn marble. Lots of dings and dents but plenty of character. Tail pipe was hanging on by a thread - literally! Love the lesser seen black hubs which match the interior and soft top. A W113 is like being near a movie star, glamorous and cool at the same time. The 230 was the very first iteration and lasted until 1967.
