Daft Punk star Thomas Bangalter has revealed how the dance duo's anonymity once backfired when a man ran up a huge bar tab in Ibiza. The dance icons' alter-egos have enabled them to keep their identities masked since their debut album Homework, though it hasn't always helped the group.

"One thing I like about the masks is that I don't have people constantly coming up to me and reminding me what I do," Bangalter told Rolling Stone. "It's nice to be able to forget, but there are occasional downsides. Several years ago in Ibiza some guy ran up exorbitant bar tabs at clubs while claiming to be me." The pair had previously revealed how their anonymity resulted in touts trying to sell them tickets to their own show at London's Astoria in 1997. 

Daft Punk returned with their No.1 single 'Get Lucky' earlier this year, which surpassed the 500,000 sales mark last week. Their new album Random Access Memories is set to break Oasis' record for the fastest-selling album in UK chart history. The Manchester band sold 650,000 copies of their record in its first week of sales in 1997 though bookmakers are offering odds of just 4/5 that the French dance icons break that record. 

Do you think Daft Punk will break Oasis' record of 650,000 copies sold in one week?
