Disco Pogo's Daft Punk tribute book 'We Were The Robots' is out now

"The book has been a labour of love since they split and we are happy to finally get it out there"

Disco Pogo's long-awaited Daft Punk tribute book is out now and available to order. 

Titled ‘Daft Punk – We Were The Robots’, the 250 page hardback book traces the story of one of the globe’s most influential electronic acts, from their earliest days right up to their unexpected split in February 2021.

The French production duo go a long way back with the Disco Pogo team. The magazine's predecessor Jockey Slut published Daft Punk’s first ever interview back in 1994, their first ever magazine cover and featured them on the line-ups of many of their Bugged Out nights over the years.

Jockey Slut and Disco Pogo founders Paul Benney and John Burgess said: “Daft Punk are one of electronic music’s greatest ever acts and we are lucky to have witnessed their ascendance, close up, from the very start. The book has been a labour of love since they split and we are happy to finally get it out there.”

As well as featuring interviews and photos from Jockey Slut and other electronic music magazines from back in the day, the book includes a wealth of newly commissioned content such as oral histories, interviews and essays.

The book is available as an initial limited first edition run of 3,000 copies to buy from Disco Pogo’s online store and selected specialist independent magazine and record shops in the UK and around the world.
