Australia's tiny town of Wee Waa gets a dose of punk, Daft Punk that is. The Grammy award winning French electro duo debuted their new album "Random Access Memories" at the 79th Wee Waa Regional Show - a fair with a long tradition of wood chopping, pick-up trucks and cowboy hats. Daft Punk did not appear in person at the launch, but 4,000 tickets were sold in 13 minutes for the event northwest of Sydney. The group's record company said the event was streamed live online to an international audience but declined to give further details, including why Wee Waa was chosen as the launch venue.
