Will Daft Punk Please Make Themselves Known to a Steward?

Book: Skagboys

Author: Irvine Welsh

Music: White Lines

Artist: Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel

I’d love to see Daft Punk get their hands on this one – it’s tailor made for them to unleash their helmet-tinged, electronic sorcery on.

I learned when Googling this song that Grandmaster Flash played no part on this record and that one of the lines is about John DeLorean. To return to a recent theme, Ireland did kind of claim DeLorean too because he built his cars in Belfast. Then we didn’t because he became a disgrace. We have enough of them of our own without having to claim other countries’.
