Where Daft Punk started. I am baffled by these prices, but I can understand because there were only 900 copies, and daft punk just split. Would be a dream to get my hands on a copy of this.

It is so weird to think that Stereolab is partly responsible for Daft Punk. Almost as weird as Thomas and Guy-Manuel making noisy shoegaze with one of the dudes from Phoenix!

Huggy Bear Scares Me. Very creepy.I don't understand how any label would release "tracks" like this.

Are we sure only 800 were pressed?

Bought mine back in '93 with the number 001007.

I remember being very excited when I received this via mail order. I was a massive fan of Huggy Bear, and I'd also seen Stereolab play a couple of times. The music isn't really that great, but the packaging is lovely. The best bit for me was finding years later just who Darlin' were. I'd bought the first Daft Punk album and was somewhat surprised to see the yellow Darlin' sticker on the gatefold photo. It also made this Duophonic double pack even more collectable! The transformation from indie-shoegazers to filter-discoers is huge and was definitely a good move by the Frenchmen.

This record contains two of the four available tracks from Darlin', a french indie noise-pop band named after a Beach Boys' song (musically kind of a not-so-fantastic cross between The Beach Boys and The Jesus&Mary Chain) whose members included the young Guy-Man De Homem Christo and Thomas Bangalter. A review in NME called Darlin' 'daft punks', which they thought was cool. So cool that they kept the name when they threw away the guitars, bleached their hairs and went to raves. The rest is history.
(and note that the third member Laurent Brancowicz aka Branco would later go on founding Phoenix, which makes Darlin' the only French "indie supergroup" to date)
