Thomas and Guy.

I was under the impression everybody who listens to dance music would know who Thomas Bangalter and Le Knight Club were. Well, seems I assumed wrongly as one of our readers mentioned that they don't know who they are. This is a most heinous musical crime that simply must be dealt with!

Let's start with Thomas Bangalter. A brief synopsis, because brief is good. Thomas Bangalter is the son of disco producer Daniel Vangarde. When he was a teenager, he formed a garage band with a few other guys called Darlin'. THey sucked, they broke up, and Thomas and his friend Guy Manuel Homem De Christo (also from Darlin') became house music artists instead. Thomas Bangalter formed the French record label Roule, which released many great works of house music by artists like Roy Davis Jr, Romanthony, and of course, Thomas Bangalter.

Guy Manuel, as mentioned above, became a house artist in the band Le Knight Club with Eric Chedeville(sp?), and formed the label Crydamoure. Crydamoure took a very different approach to house music, as can be heard here.

Now to those of you who haven't figured it out yet, Thomas and Guy are also robots in the band DAFT PUNK.

There. Now I don't ever want to see anyone saying they don't know who Thomas and Le Knight Club are! ;)


PS, Here's Boba Fettuccini's version of Spinal Scratch, called Spinal Skratch.
