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.
