I was there too. It was the Singles tour. December 2005. Great night.


Damn. I was at one of the Brixton gigs -either end of 2005 or early 2006 and I remember being drenched in sweat once The Prodigy started. If I'm not mistaken, that was the tour period they started playing stuff from The Experience again ... one of my most memorable gigs...everyone moshing. RIP.

Previous Rock am Ring video, look at 3:30, it's impressive, masses under their control.[/quote]
Yep, thats some great crowd footage.

I remember seeing them at Brixton Academy in 2005 ish and they opened the set with Break & Enter, Their Law and Breathe. Devastation. Completely lost all my crew in the mosh pit and never saw them again until until after the end. Never sweat so much at a gig before.

I guess this signals the end of the Prodigy, not sure how they would carry on without him?

Hmmm, wasn't there a "RDJ vs. Prodigy" dick comparison story going... back in the 90s, where The Prodigy created some Aphex style track (with bouncing ball effect?) and RDJ countered with ... I don't know... Come to Daddy? Or Girl/Boy?

 

Not sure, anyone remembers?

 

I thought it was Goldie who was responsible for the spat..... would like to see the full story though! Here he is wearing the infamous t-shirt

 

7457654.jpg

 

 

I've found something about the Goldie vs Keith thing here

 

This story took place in 1996, when Keith Flint made nasty comments in a NME interview about Goldie and his fianceé, Björk. This led Goldie to wear a “Cunt Face” T-shirt featuring Keith’s face, at Brighton Festival that year.

 
After that Muzik Magazine featured a quote from an official letter where Keith apologised to Goldie & made a special interview with both of them, meeting each other for the first time!
 
Goldie: ”At first when Keith tried to call me i couldn’t fucking speak to him man“
 
Keith: ”This whole episode was really ruined my year, especially as it came right on the back of our success with ‘Firestarter’. I’d never done vocals on one of our tracks before, and to do them successfully, and be accepted by the people live, was a massive buzz. Needless to say, it was completely smashed to pieces, when all this shit came about. It was the last fucking thing i needed. I’m just glad it’s over. I’m fucking relieved, actually.“
 
Goldie was satisfied with the official apology and later on, presented the Prodigy as the Best Dance Act in the 1996 MTV Europe Music Awards at London’s Alexandra Palace, where it was their second time they’ve ever met.

“TV corrupts people, I think. A lot of acts get that little break and they change from T-shirt and shorts to designer stuff, swanning around like arseholes. I mean, to me Goldie and Björk are like that. Goldie’s coming on as the bad boy of the jungle scene — and then next thing you know he’s going on to give an award to his girlfriend at The Brit Awards. Now to me, that was as sickening as Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley. I’m not dissing him, right, but if I watch that, it’s Bon Jovi. It’s Hollywood. You give ‘em a few front covers and they wanna play the pop-star game.”

 
“Nah, that’s bollocks, Keith,” Liam calmly corrects his colleague. I’ve got respect for Goldie, because all he’s doing is bringing a music that’s actually quite small – ’cos jungle’s not as big as the press make it out to be – to a new audience. He hasn’t commercialised his music. And he hasn’t sold out. It’s good stuff man.”
 
“Sure,” says Keith, slowly trying to dig himself out of the the hole his big mouth has created. “But I’m just saying, you put a camera in front of someone and they do something a little bit cheesy. It’s just the hypocrisy, man. If you slag off the mainstream when you’re small, you shouldn’t embrace it later.”
 
 
 
Never mind. I hear Goldie takes criticism with good grace
 
Some shit '90s music journalist's wet dream plus Goldie being a bit precious is all it was.

90's music journalism in the UK was very much like that. The smallest thing resembling a sell-out situation (like the Bjork and Goldie thing) was usually a green light for vicious backlash. It's just the way it was. I remember at the time it being widely sneered at.

I had read somewhere that he was devastated from his recent marriage break up and his 1.5m house went up for sale as a result of this just days ago. Also was forced to close his pub due to other problems. Despite the brave face, the pressure of it all must of got him and he hit the drugs, and unfortunately caused the unthinkable to happen  :sad:

 

This is the worst kind of speculation please stop.

 

My fave Prodigy story is how fucking huge they are in the Balkans as they played Belgrade during war in the 90's. They're national heroes there. Saw them at Exit 2008 and it was unbelievable. They started their Warrior's Dance festival there as they are so god damn big.

 

I've seen them a few times and fit the bill as the most fun and stupidest live act I've seen and I mean that as a compliment.

Prodigy was pretty much the first electronic group which I didn't find as cheesy as, say, all the eurodance etc stuff that was going around back then. They even aired the uncensored version of smack my bitch up on the public tv top 40 program at something like 7pm. Wouldn't go through now. Jilted was a big thing at one point. Still have fond memories of the Electronic Punks VHS. Great assortment of promo vids and live. Maybe will throw it to my old dusted vhs player and see if there's anything anymore on the tape.

 

 

Later stuff didn't much do anything for me sadly. imo Keith gave a face to a specific phase in the 90's music and culture. Prodigy was a regular guest on every music mag. They were frequently covered in even Metal Hammer. So RIP!

 sorry...wine mat, as I no longer drink beer!

Hey hey hey think a little, what kind of wolf would do something like that. You're not the wolf I've got to know. :sad:
