Daft Punk Rumours, rumours and yet more rumours …

Gruff Rhys and Kenny Anderson (AKA King Creosote) have been seen sheltering beneath many a dripping tarpaulin throughout many of this year’s soggy festivals.

And while surrounded by the same falafel munching audiences, they have bonded, becoming fans of each other’s music, but also good friends.Regulars
