View Full Version : Can someone explain this Daft Punk business?

So, I get the big joke every year is that Daft Punk is headlining, but why is it such a unrealistic expectation? Do they want too much money? Do they not give a shit about playing at Coachella again? Was their performance in 2006 such a masterpiece that everyone wants it repeated every year from now till' the end of time?

I'm trying to put this in the nicest most non-trolling way possible. Mainly because I'm a huge Daft Punk fan and am genuinely wondering why it's such a 'joke'. Do you senior board members / Coachella veterans think there is the slightest chance Daft Punk will play Coachella again?

They are producing new material with Paul Williams and Nile Rodgers so new album and tour seem realistic and 2012 might actually be the year it happens

More like this:

1. Steal blatantly from the 1970s.
2. Hire really cool people to direct your videos
3. Get played to the point of nauseating any reasonable person
4. Go away for a decade
5. ??????
6. Come back with all the music you stole mixed together in 3-4 layers, hire really cool people to make you a dope light show.
7. PROFIT!!!!

Part of the reason it's almost unrealistic, is because Thomas Bangalter has said he won't be playing anymore due to his tinnitus.

Also what PF said.

When & where did he say this? People were talking about his tinnitus ruling out any future Daft Punk performances prior to their appearance on the 2006 poster so unless there was an article that came out fewer than 5 years ago (meaning after the 2007 tour ended), that's not the reason they'd never perform at Coachella again.

Whoops, you are correct. I read the article a while ago and I guess I should have gone back to read it again. The article I read was from 2004, and after I reread it, I realized that it even says something to the effect of "his tinnitus has improved." Damn my selective memory.

Randy is being too kind. Daft Punk is dumb music for dumb people. They dress up in stupid children's halloween costumes because dumb people dig that shit. Oooh look at the pretty lights. The PT Barnum of modern music: a sucker born every minute. There is nothing interesting ever in any of their songs. Cheap gimmicks that are impressive to people who are easily impressed by cheap gimmicks. More akin to Limp Bizkit than to Radiohead or Bowie.

This is so stupid from a music theory stand-point.

Tons of bro-idiots "like" Daft Punk (or think they do), sure, but to generalize every song "ever"? Stupid as fuck.

You both have good points but I think you're being too harsh. Everyone should enjoy getting down and dumb sometimes, much like watching a Transformers movie. But yes they're over-rated and I'd prefer an Underworld set.

They didn't go away after releasing their debut album like the Propellerheads did.
None of Homework was "stolen" from 70s records.
I can go on but for fuck's sake their influences were from Detroit techno and Chicago house, stfu

i posted like 3 really old videos on my fb a while ago where each song had the main riff 100%. They absolutely use samples and its not a big deal or anything to hide. if anything its celebrating the original source. if i could figure out how to use search on time line id find then vids and post them here.

I don't recall ever claiming that they went away after their first album.

Most of Homework was absolutely stolen, Da Funk coming to mind immediately, others I'd have to look up.

Saying that someone was influenced by Detroit Techno and Chicago House instead of disco is like saying that somebody was influenced by 1969 rock instead of 1968 rock. Techno and House were direct evolutions of disco, if you don't understand that you're out of your goddamn mind.

Plus none of their samples are from those genres. Their samples are all from 70s soul/funk/disco acts.

1. So Daft Punk sucks for more or less inventing the Dj stage show? that makes them worse than every, fucking dj that has copied them since?

2. Is it stealing if they're collaborating with disco legends?

3. If it's the lights and costumes that made them famous, then why was their return so over in 06 when they hadn't used any of those things in 7-8 years? (or ever, i don't remember them having any stage props in '97, except the masks).



'shitty music' for 'shitty people' who only like them for the lights and costumes? Odd, since the Vegoose bootleg is my most played download on my player and i've never even seen their shitty lights or shitty costumes. i've listened to the '06 chella performance, but i've never watched it. Sure, i'm shitty and i like shitty music, but not for the reasons you claim, which invalidate your entire argument in my eyes. And i still maintain that it's the cream of the crop when it comes to electronic music (and easily outdoes anything that came out between '01-08)....but i will give you that Underworld is more overdue to play (but IN the sahara, none of this Outdoor nonsense), make it happen GV!!

Daft Punk has played before too. More recently.


If an act from '06 is overdue to return, what does that say about a group that hasn't played since '04 and is the SECOND most requested electronic act to play?

If you don't get it, well....you don't get it.

There were those who never heard of Daft Punk, saw the show, loved it and became new fans. Then there are those who were already fans of Daft Punk and they shat themselves when they saw the 2006 poster. Many, like myself, who have been listening to Daft Punk since Homework dropped have waited for an opportunity to see them. My only chance to have seen them was when I was 12 and they were at the Mayan....Yeah.... not going to happen. It looked pretty amazing though, they have a DVD that allows you 12 camera angles of their song "Rolling and Scratching", one of the very few dvds (other than porn) that utilized the multiangle idea with dvd technology. You could just see all these different views of their show and it definitely displayed the intimacy and energy between DP and fans. They have always wanted to utilize the most they can out of a technology. The Alive 2007 Tour really showcased this, look up the picture that shows the inside of their Pyramid. It's quite impressive, then you find out they have HUDs inside of their helmets, in addition to voice communicators?! What the fuck. That's just cool. Then you realize, instead of making a new album, they decided to remix their past 3 albums as a 2 hour dance fest. It fucking worked beautifully.

One thing to appreciate about their music is this: simplicity. They keep it simple on their albums and still produce hits. "Da Funk" is an amazing anthem that, unfortunately due to the bands recent popularity, is now just about played to death. I was discussing with a friend the other night, only Daft Punk should play Daft Punk now a days. Mainly because they can keep their stuff fresh, everyone else drops a Daft Punk song and it feels like a token of Daft Punk rather than a creative choice. Sure they have sold out, but wouldn't you? Bullshit if you say you'd prefer living in "honest" poverty rather than cashing out for a song you wrote a few years ago.

I highly recommend you see their next "Live" show, its worth it. I hear tons of hate all the time for Daft Punk, stating they are overrated. Then I ask these folks, "Have you seen them live?" to which they reply, "No...Have you?" I say, "Yes." they say, "Oh..."

I feel the main argument against Daft Punk is their popularity, as it has reached that population known as "idiot". Yes, there are ton of idiot fans, but don't tell me there aren't idiot fans for Radiohead, Morrisey, Pink Floyd, NBA, MLB, NFL etc. All things sacred are destined to be doomed by the idiot population one day.

amma_sol
07-27-2012, 05:11 PM
Don't get me wrong... I like Daft punk. BUT, I'm just not so obsessed with them as some people seem to be. I would LOVE to see them live and I have heard they are an amazing show but I won't be disappointed if i never get the chance to see them. Does that make sense? Like if it happens, awesome! If not, oh well. But maybe that's just it, I have heard all their music over and over and over and over again that it just doesn't seem special anymore?
