Watch Daft Punk play a wet rave in a Wisconsin field in 1996

Daft Punk’s very first American show was at a rave in a wet field outside Madison. The French duo played the Even Furthur fest in 1996, long before their helmeted personas emerged. Spin has an excellent and very complete oral history of the gig on its site, but for anyone averse to actual reading, Consequence Of Sound just posted an old video of the group’s set to its site. The 30-odd minute long VHS dub leaves a little to be desired, soundwise, but Electro-Blog has a slightly better recording of the show, albeit without the accompanying baggy t-shirt and pacifier-laden visuals.
