Justice? Daft Punk Who?

Well, I’ve been holding this back for a while, until I overheard a conversation today about Daft Punk and Justice being totally original and ground breaking. I’m really sorry, but that isn’t totally true.

This is where I introduce Kraftwerk a group who was conceived in 1970. Yeah, Nineteen-Seventy. That’s no typo. I’m not saying that I dislike Justice or Daft, that is the furthest from the truth. It seems like everything is so in the moment these days, lets get back to our roots.

Hmmmm “AeroDynamik” sounds familiar.

    while i totally agree that Kraftwerk were a huge inspiration for Daft Punk, the live experiences are completely different… both awesome but they are night and day even though they share common themes. Daft Punk’s show shakes you to the core — it is sensory overload in a way that Kraftwerk’s is not.

    As for Justice — they are at the start of their careers. They put on a cool show but they usually DJ and the set design (while distinct and awesome in its own way) is budget conscious.

    But to your initial point — totally original? ha… no they are not. But all three are worth seeing live. The appetite of Daft Punk fans for a reunion is on full display here — folks bidding before a show is even scheduled:
