Most casual listeners today will only know Daft Punk in their helmets; it’s not surprising, given how iconic they’ve become. And while it almost seems foolish to have to say this, there was a time before the helmets when Daft Punk was just Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, rather than our favorite robots.

Pictures from Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s first ever live UK tour have surfaced, capturing them in action at Heavenly Social, London After Midnight and Tribal Gathering in 1995 and ’96.

In Daft Punk’s own words, you could say that Bangalter and de Homem-Christo are … human after all.
