Daft Punk splitting up and why I can’t honestly say I’m bothered

I see that Daft Punk have decided to call it a day. Cue loads of eulogies from people who seem to think it’s the worst thing that’s ever happened. Really? In the middle of a pandemic that’s killed nearly 2½ million people to date, the reaction just seems completely inappropriate.

You might have guessed that I have no intention of joining this hysterical festival of mourning. I have no doubt that there are many people who certainly cited Daft Punk as an influence on their music and why they got onto it. Absolutely fine. And I include myself in the list of people who have got enjoyment out of their records over the years. I played one of the Masters At Work remixes of “Around The World” only the other day, for example.

There’s no denying that two boys from France have done good in their 28 years together. But the reaction to them calling it a day is just utterly ridiculous. Then again, when you announce your retirement by putting out a 6 minute video with cinematic production and two robots blowing up, it kinda invites that kind of hysteria, doesn’t it?
