Seeing Daft for the first time in the Sahara is probably alway's gonna be my favorite Coachella moment (and will probably only be topped if somehow someway BoC get their butts out here). It was just everything of this being their first show live in like what, 7-8 years? Nobody knew if they were gonna be dressed as robots or not...there was just so much hype, mystery, and tension, it was great. At most, I was expecting that MAYBE they were gonna be in the suits and maybe behind a table that would light up while they played, I expected nothing more than that.....and then sitting there in the dark after having been in the Sahara for 3 hours already (having seen Cox who was great, and Audio Bullys who were dreadful), and seeing people simply texting "Daft Punk" on their lit up cell phones, then the notes of Close Encounters drops, the curtains go back, and you see this big pyramid and the robots....it was great.

Sure, after almost 2 years of the same show, same set it got a little tiring and boring....but it was still a hell of a show....but they need a big break now, come back in 3 years with something new and fresh and I'll be excited all over again.

i don't think they are garbage ass electro by any means, but i agree that people here praise them too much. in every argument about daft punk, people always bring the live show into the discussion. it'd be interesting if we could get all daft punk fanboys talk more about the music itself instead of what kind of setup they want to see in the next tour.

human after all is a really bad album, btw.

I like daft punk. But it has gotten incredibly hard to appreciate their music anymore, considering how overplayed they've been since their performance in 06. It seems like I cant go to a concert without hearing some form of a Daft Punk song.

I still think Alive 1997 album is way better then 07.

this is not true. after that show i remember all kinds of people on here saying how amazed they were by how daft sort of re-invented a lot of their songs with the way they mixed them in that set. sure, the pyramid was a huge part of the show, but the music was just as important. i'll admit im not a big fan of their albums. there are a few exceptions, but most of their songs sound pretty repetitive and boring if you ask me. but fuck, i can listen to that set over and over and it still rocks my world.

all that being said, ill agree that they are pretty played out and over-hyped around here. yes, it was an epic set, but its time to move on.

This is such a fucking douchebag thread to start especially after you already had a thread about them to rail away in.

Look, Marooko, I'm sure you listen to only the BEST fucking EDM there is. I'm sure you--who has thus far exhibited no taste in any other form of art or had a particularly incisive moment on any subject whatsoever--listen to much, much better music and have seen much better concerts than the pyramid. Fucking whatever.

I don't give a shit what any of you reactionary cunts who have seen it and want to be too cool for it now that it's all popular or you dumb fucks who didn't see it and want to talk shit nonetheless, but here's the cold hard fact:

That was one of the most brilliant concerts I've ever seen--and any of us will ever see--in our lives. You feel differently, fine, but you're wrong and you're missing out.

LA Sports Arena and Vegoose. Look, I missed the Coachella show, fucking whatever. All the more reason that I don't give a shit about the "magic of that night in the Sahara Tent" bullshit. I saw that shit once in an arena and once at a festival and it was just as entertaining as any show I've ever seen both times. THAT'S why it's not just some one-off jerking of cock that you can dismiss offhand.

It was one truly great work. And that's all any artist can ever hope for, and all it requires to have been great. If the only amazing concert Pink Floyd ever performed had been The Wall tour it would still be an absolutely legendary show. Fuck it.

see, this i can appreciate. but the attitude that they're the be all end all of electronic music is just plain insanity. like mentioned before, there are so many acts that arent known that would just blow them away musically.

im not saying the show wasnt good, im saying daft punk isnt as good as the show. creatively, musically. i mean come on, most of you posting admit to not even owning or really listening to their music. that says it all.

To mainstream, no soul, superficial electro beats that dick and jane are getting down to who have no substance to begin with. Whe I realized they were playing at coachella...I was like "ahh, oh well...maybe maybe not"...I have to be honest that as I was walking over to the sahara tent I had no expectations as to what I was in for and ended up having an absolute BLAST and enjoyed one of my favorite moments at coachella!!! I went on to see them at the Grek last year and one of the boardies was so very gracious and generous to burn me a copy of the coachella DVD bootleg which some bitch sticky fingered from me...I have a new level of respect for them because they can create and raise that level of energy and get a crowd (huge crowd) to have that much fun...as far as I'm concerned for someone to have that ability definately commands a certain level of respect.

Do you even remember back to 1996-1997?

The fan base now these days consist of 16 year old hipsters who have no clue on the history of the group, and strictly know the "pyramid" and their connection to Justice and Ed Banger, it's sad.

and i'll say this - daft punk wouldn't be as popular as they are currently if it wasn't for the pyramid show (or some other extravagant visual show of equal proportion). they wouldn't, and you're simply fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

daft punk is well known, yes - they have been well known since the 90s, since homework. but being well known is different than being popular. the chemical brothers are a pretty well known name, but they could they have headlined lolla in 07? no way.

daft punk is popular, and a majority of this is owed to the pyramid. i'd bet money that alot of people (not all, but alot) wouldn't have cared that much if it wasnt for the show.

that being said, i like the mix. it's very creative and well done, very fine blending of songs (the television rules the nation/crescendolls mix is fucking ace).

I forget how in tune I have to be to write a post on this forum. Some of you are so on your musical game I wish I won the multi-state lottery worth a ridiculous 300million, seeing about 150 of that, then setting up some small festival with all of you as my promoters and booking agents.

I agree with what you say. I would blow up cinespace. I am Persian.. I would.. But I agree. It's a lack of substance. With technology, Myspace, and all the other resources available to people it has become easier and easier for music to become harder and harder to distinguish its actual worthiness. Anyone can become famous and a hit, for 2 min..Just more and more often now. Especially with electronic music when the growing newcomers trying drugs while going to certain performances, it's only expected to happen.

True. The show they put on is without a doubt a fantastic one. But they did an AMAZING job remixing. Chemical Brothers, Cyrstal Method, and someone like Miss Kittin. Sometimes a musical group builds on what they have, others fall through the cracks they make by over doing it.

It's not the pyramid that remade their career recently. Remember, if you will, the absolute shit reviews that Human After All got. There didn't seem to be one single positive review for that release.

Here's the deal: I don't give two shits what you think about Daft Punk. Love them, great. Hate them, that's your call. But like any other greats, if you dismiss their skill or influence relative to the rest to the genre, you sir/bitch/woman/womanman/what-the-fuck-ever, are a fool. It's just the facts.

and i'll say this - daft punk wouldn't be as popular as they are currently if it wasn't for the pyramid show (or some other extravagant visual show of equal proportion). they wouldn't, and you're simply fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

daft punk is well known, yes - they have been well known since the 90s, since homework. but being well known is different than being popular. the chemical brothers are a pretty well known name, but they could they have headlined lolla in 07? no way.

daft punk is popular, and a majority of this is owed to the pyramid. i'd bet money that alot of people (not all, but alot) wouldn't have cared that much if it wasnt for the show.

that being said, i like the mix. it's very creative and well done, very fine blending of songs (the television rules the nation/crescendolls mix is fucking ace).
Yes, but production just compliments the music. They could have had the biggest light-gasm in the history of electricity but it wouldn't have been worth a damn if the music wasn't up to par.

It's not the pyramid that remade their career recently. Remember, if you will, the absolute shit reviews that Human After All got. There didn't seem to be one single positive review for that release. However, they showed with the set that those songs fit ably within their catalog. They have a fantastic way of contextualizing their work and making it thrive in a larger field, and it makes them a band worth listening to.

True. The show they put on is without a doubt a fantastic one. But they did an AMAZING job remixing. Chemical Brothers, Cyrstal Method, and someone like Miss Kittin. Sometimes a musical group builds on what they have, others fall through the cracks they make by over doing it.

They did do an amazing job mixing the tracks. That I think is true.

But that's not what gave them hype/popularity after the recent live shows. It was the pyramid.

And I think the Chems mix their music amazingly as well. But we can talk about that one later :)

apart from the first sentence, all of this is pretty much true.

but it's all overlooked unfortunately.

again, its not their skilled mixing that made them popular again. it was the pyramid.

I don't hate them at all. I do respect them. They are a somewhat influential name in the world of electronic music.

This. I have a notorious reputation for saying this. Tell this to all of the fans of Etienne de Crecy. Shit music but a dazzling show to go with it, and people think its amazing. Making quality music is much harder than coming up with a cool visual show.

Wrong on so many levels, in fact what you said doesn't even make sense. The "crowd culture" is 17-50 year olds, yet it's almost impossible to find any DP fans above the age of 30? Do you even remember back to 1996-1997? Daft were around then...I can remember listening to Homework in 7th/8th grade....they had a nice cult fan base back then, whom I'm sure all still remember them. The fan base now these days consist of 16 year old hipsters who have no clue on the history of the group, and strictly know the "pyramid" and their connection to Justice and Ed Banger, it's sad. And if by "most electronic music garbage" you mean "electro", then you're right, yes.
Pfft! Now you're both wrong! #1. I'm far from 16. (Really far! LOL) #2. I have every one of their Discs. #3. I don't care about Ed Banger or Justice, but I have taken on a new liking for pyramids!


It was the pyramid that remade their career. The pyramid may have remade their career, but their music changed my life and rocked my world!

Hmmm...I personally liked Daft Punk before I saw the pyramid show, so I would say their show has nothing to do with me liking their music. There is not a pyramid with robots when I listen to their cds in my car. If you don't like it, don't listen to it.

Saying the pyramid is what did it is pretty damn cynical, don't you think? The pyramid didn't get people to dance for the entirety of the set, and it didn't get people to sing along to the various hooks they dropped, and it didn't make them go wild when they dropped One More Time or Harder Faster Better Stronger. To say that it did is stupid and reductive. The pyramid is what people will talk about because it's the visual aspect and it's the easiest part to discuss, but the reason people kept going to the show was for the music. If it was just for the pyramid, they'd go to vegas and watch the luxor light up while they danced with their friends to german trance in one of the faceless night clubs there.

I'll have you know my little Ranger is powered by Daft Punk, thank you very much! As a matter of fact, I've had to refill Homework, Discovery, and Alive due to over-fueling since I became a fan. Coincidently, ever since my CD player died, my truck has run like shit...:nono

I still disagree Brian, that pyramid is responsible for the popularity. Let me put it this way - had DP performed with a light/visual show similar to that of Crystal Method's 09 performance, no way in hell it would have been as well received.

People would have danced to it regardless. But they wouldn't have hailed it as the "best electronic act ever" from numerous accounts if it wasn't for the pyramid.

No they wouldn't have gone. Well some might have, but most wouldn't.

But the music isn't terrible, it's good. I believe that people would have still seen DP again even if it wasn't for the pyramid.

But not as many people.

The pyramid gave them the popularity to play venues the size of the Sports Arena and headline Lolla.

oh and to answer your question " if they kept the light show but the music was really fucking terrible, would people go?" well, people did go see Etienne de Crecy this year at coachella after seeing the countless youtubes of that cube, right?

Right. So did I.

Can't it be both? It was the music combined with the light show. Who knows how well either would have been received if one aspect was missing. Both were awesome and both are responsible for Daft Punks popularity these days. Whether the music or the light show is more responsible for this popularity seems like a pointless debate to me.

hawkingvsreeve
05-26-2009, 09:12 AM
I dont necessarily think it is one or the other, because it is a combination, but I fully agree with Bryan as well. I think they could play the larger venues even without the pyramid because of the rarity of their performances. I think they played all of the festivals and what not because the logistics of setting the pyramid up in an arena every night is staggering at best.
