The History of Daft Punk

By | source:Klub.fm May 16th, 2016

They’ve come too far to give up who they are, but how did they get here?

Being born French helps. From Eiffel 65 (the blue-da-ba-die people) to Air to Pheonix, there’s something special about French electronica, but that’s a tangent for another time.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manual de Monem-Christo, the pair that we came to know in gold and silver robot suits, were first together in a band called Darlin’ with some other folks. It would seem that the name “Daft Punk” was taken from a (mostly negative) review of that band, which you can read here, if you so please.

For someone who was as young as I in 1995, the year they really took off, Daft Punk seems like a timeless fixure of the musical scene, but looking at their timeline laid out like this makes me realize that they are a younger band than I subconciously imagined. I love Daft Punk, and I think the best may be yet to come.
