The lead singer in the band strums the cords of his electric guitar as he sings to Mexico's Armando Ramírez. Mastering the art of recycling metal and auto parts, Ramírez sculpts the singer with pieces from a car's ignition and electrical system for the body, wire for the limbs, and pieces left over from a die machine for the hands, feet, and head. Additional metal parts are transformed into an electric guitar, the microphone and the base.
