Darlin' (French band)
The Beach Boys-inspired group released their songs on Stereolab's Duophonic record label, contained in the Shimmies In Super 8 compilation with Stereolab, Huggy Bear and Colm. In 1995 they appeared on the De La Viande Pour Le Disco? compilation, released by Banana Split. This rare limited edition cassette contained two unreleased Darlin' tracks, named "Untitled 18" and "Untitled 33".
A review in British music magazine Melody Maker called the music "a daft punky thrash." Thus after this short-lived group disbanded, Bangalter and de Homem-Christo created Daft Punk, a successful and world-renowned electronic music project, in 1993. Meanwhile, Brancowitz joined his younger brother Christian Mazzalai in the band Phoenix. The three remained friends, most recently appearing together when Daft Punk made a surprise appearance during the encore of Phoenix's show at Madison Square Garden in October 2010.
