Best Bit-At 2.32.Ever wondered how Daft Punk got their name?(probably not) well now you can find out.
Daft Punk are the duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel de Homen-Christo,they originally played together in an Indie Rock band called ‘Darlin” named after The Beach Boys song.A negative review in ‘Melody Maker’ magazine by Dave Jennings called the music of Darlin’ ‘A daft punky thrash,’ this amused Bangalter and Homem-Christo who decided it was a good name for their new project.After Darlin’ disbanded they joined forces and changed their musical style by experimenting with drum machines and synthesizers.
‘Da Funk’ was initially released in 1995 to little success,but did receive a boost when The Chemical Brothers incorporated it into their live shows.After a bidding war amongst several record labels Daft Punk signed with ‘Virgin’ and released their debut Album ‘Homework.’
As for the songs video Bangalter has stated,’There is no story.It is just a man-dog walking with a ghetto-blaster in New York.Is it about human tolerance?Integration?Urbanism? There’s really no message.There will be a sequel someday.’
