Daft Punk to stage LP playback on a farm, in Australia

Daft Punk

In typically ‘zany’ style, Daft Punk are going to give their new LP, ‘Random Access Memories’, its first ever playback at a family farm fair in the 2100 population Australian locale of Wee Waa, New South Wales. And why not, that’s what I say.

The listening party will go on at the same time as a baby show, “showgirl competition” and “buzz’s lolly drop” (whatever that is). And, in all probability, a pig race, which I’d choose above all the other attractions. It’s all happening on 17 May, just in advance of the LP’s 20 May release date.

If you do go, let’s just hope it’s not all an elaborate ruse, as befell Mixmag Bass Editor Seb Wheeler recently.
