Remember The Prodigy ?
 
Fat of the Land was the shit in 98 , right ?

well , the Prodigy might be gone but they are not forgotten

just found a sweet acapella video of Smack My Bitch Up- Breathe and Firestarter .... prolly a school in Sweden.

1. it's awesome !
2. Swedish got the best porn
3. no , it's not a porn video ... but it's audio porn if you ask me !

I actually much prefer Music for the Jilted Generation. That album blew my mind when I first heard it. Fat of the Land ended up somewhat disappointing afterwards, though I like some of the tracks.

Yeah, the whole thing with them in the 90s was weird. They were pretty much touted as the next big thing before they had really done anything at all mainstream. And when you looked at it, they really weren't doing anything remarkable in that genre - there were plenty of contemporary bands doing the same kind of thing, but The Prodigy got singled out for some reason.

I just didn't keep up with them afterwards.

This is a weird coincidence becauseI thought I'd recently seen something about a new parody of Smack my Bitch Up from the POV of a dog. Now I can't find it so maybe I dreamt it. I don't know.

But yeah, I even liked Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. Their mixup album Dirtchamber Sessions is always fun to throw on at parties or on a drive as well.

They're not really gone, they're just not relevant anymore. New album sometime next year.

They were the first band that got me on the path of electronic music.

But... FOTL is my favorite album, and Narayan is my favorite tune.

I prefer FOTL as the definitive Prodigy cd .... one of those rare cd where if you like 1 song , you like them all. No fillers !

Liam got an inflated ego after that and ruined everything.

at least Invaders Must Die was good .... but The Prodigy worked best with 2 singers ... bring the black dude back aka Maxim!

The Postmaster General 12-13-2012 07:05 PM

Fat of the Land for me as well.


About that video I wondered if I'd seen of...
Okay, found it, though I maybe wish I didn't as I ended up watching it against my previously reserved better judgement

Redeeming quality: recreating the strip club/coke use, bar fight, it wasn't a weird coincidental dream I had, it was a weird coincidence since no one talks of Prodigy anymore, and is that Adam Goldberg?

Worst part: it exists

...Maxim is still part of the band...you must be thinking of Leeroy Thornhill, he was just a dancer though. They were absolutely on fire during FSOL era. I'm talking LIVE performances were just insane. I mean look at this crowd, they filled uop the entire Red Square http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTytH6UO0iM

Maxim has a pretty distinct look - can't imagine getting those two confused.

Maxim is the black guy , Keith is the punk white guy with the piercings.

Invaders Must Die cd featured only Keith (the black guy in that title song video is NOT Maxim ) . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2-VF9u24F4


btw a new The Prodigy cd is supposed to come out in 2013 .. tentatively called "How To Steal a Jet Fighter" ... like the next Metallica , i'm curious but i'm not holding my breathe (Psycho-somatic addict-insane .... too easy lol )
