This is all we ever see of the 2 man band known the world over as Daft Punk:
They’ve not shown their faces, and that’s how they like, on stage and even at media events. You could walk past the guys in Daft Punk and never know it, and that’s by design. Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo says being part of the cult of personality is not the only way to go in music. He says people are more excited to see the robots than they would to see two regular guys on stages, playing trippy music.
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo says it’s like icons C-3PO or Chewbacca from “Star Wars,”— he never wanted to see the faces behind those characters, and he’d forget them anyway. He believes the robot look of Daft Punk is “far more trippy” and opens the imagination more than Daft Punk’s faces would.
Their new album, “Random Access Memories,” just released. Daft Punk’s popularity globally is mind blowing, as their Facebook page demonstrates.
