Niall Flanagan and Dwayne Moloney from the Secret of the Sailor Madness podcast join us this week to break down Daft Punk's Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem!
French robot dance-pop duo Daft Punk released their album "Discovery" in 2001, and commissioned artist Leiji Matsumoto to create a companion feature film, telling the story of a rock band from outer space, kidnapped and molded into Earth's Next Big Thing. There's some commentary about the music industry and some wacky sci-fi spaceship action, but mostly it's Daft Punk's attempt to create the raddest laser light show imaginable.
So since Daft Punk has disbanded on the album's 20th anniversary, join us as we spin "Discovery" ONE MORE TI-IME!
