Daft Punk has gone from an obscure helmet sporting French synth duo to Grammy award winners and a household name, but did they steal their entire gimmick from obscure 80s group The Earons?
Both groups wear signature motorcycle helmets, funky futuristic outfits and play similarly funky synth tunes, but like any musical act with a fashion gimmick parallels are sure to be drawn between the modern group and some previous influence.
The similarities are pretty darn clear after watching the video, and since The Earons had but one album, which was released nearly thirty years ago, they seem like the perfect targets to emulate since it's unlikely anyone would ever uncover the truth. But let's face it, those hipsters the Earons were into being anonymized by their motorcycle helmets and playing spacy tunes way before it was cool.
