Daft Punk – ‘Random Access Memories’

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” So said the Preacher of Ecclesiastes. And he said it two and a half thousand years ago, which puts people moaning about things sounding like...

Album Review: Daft Punk, 'Tron Legacy Soundtrack' (Virgin)

Daft Punk, 'Tron Legacy Soundtrack' (Virgin)

There are some pieces of casting so perfect that if you were to believe in destiny, you would say that somebody’s life had been inexorably leading up to that moment and that moment alone. Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Barbara Windsor...

Daft Punk: 'Alive 2007'

Daft Punk’s ‘Alive 1997’, remains one of the best live albums ever – and that includes those made by ‘real’ bands with guitars and drums and stuff. A juddering 45-minute multiple eargasm, it documented Daft Punk exploding through the...

Single Of The Week - DAFT PUNK : Aerodynamic

Single Of The Week - DAFT PUNK : Aerodynamic

A lone bell chimes. Like Godzilla, an electro-disco riff bursts from beneath the earth's crust. Beats kick like mules at the World Kicking Championships. A neoclassical, widdly-widdly geetar solo - that sounds suspiciously like Nigel Kennedy...

Daft Punk : Discovery

Daft Punk : Discovery

Four years after 'Homework' redefined dance music, turned handbag house into High Art and landed every disco chancer in Paris a record deal, can Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo still sound fresh in a post-Punk popscape of their...
