The Prodigy


#1

The Prodigy have new music coming out tomorrow. Does anyone care anymore?


#2

My late 90’s self does. My 2018 self says ehhh. I’ll still give it a whirl.


#3

I saw The Prodigy at Brixton Academy in December 1995 supported by The Chemical Brothers on an all nighter. (The day before, I saw Pulp at that venue.) Both brilliant gigs.

As it’s a Prodigy thread they were relevant and brilliant back then but not anymore.

I’ll certainly listen to their albums again but I can’t watch men older than me shouting that they’re “troublestarters or firestarters or have a remedy to a poison”.

I don’t mean to be cruel to them but nowadays no one cares anymore about them as the original poster asked.

Having said all that, Jilted is a 10/10 album.

‘Jilted’ is indeed amazing and hasn’t dated at all (unlike ‘Experience’).


#5

Dunno, some of the new stuff I’m hearing come out right now from other acts has more in common with Experience than Jilted.

Prodigy were great fun in 1991/92 and a superb live act around 1995/96. But beyond that, nothing much.


#6

I really like their album always outnumbered never outgunned from 2004. No silly vocals. Just music and some good music at that.


#7

I was at that. Good times :+1:


#8

as a metaller in 1994, i couldn’t understand why i liked No Good (Start The Dance) so much. Probably because it’s an absolute TUNE! agree that Jilted is still great. it’s a shame they went off the boil after that. Bits of crabby one were ok and i remember liking AONO when it came out. They’ve seemed to have lost all originality since though - just rechurning the same old milk to the same old butter, which merely makes us fat.


#9

I saw them a few years ago, and it was surprisingly great. Brilliant live show. Supported by Public Enemy, who was also entertaining.

I think I like everything the Prodge have done, in different ways. Jilted is a classic.


#10

New song is called Need some1 and it’s having it’s first play on Annie Mac’s show tonight BBCR1


#11

I saw them at Manchester Arena in 1997 supported by the Foo Fighters. Prodigy were great. Foos were shite.


#12

The problem for me was… Firestarter was great but then Keith went “I HAVE A MICROPHONE!” and they kept doing it. Their instrumental stuff is great but the Keith stuff has been diminishing returns ever since.


#13

That’s the only Prodigy album I’ve heard. Bought it in a twofer deal with The Cure’s self-titled. A good combo!


#14

You owe it to yourself to listen to Music for the Jilted Generation.

Oosh.


#15

The Dirtchamber Sessions was fucking brilliant


#16

Another vote for Davidoff Cool Music For The Jilted Generation. Played that album to death when I got it. Absolutely class.

Saw them in a glorified barn in Millstreet in rural County Cork in 2005. Fucking loved it. First gig I was ever at where I could feel the bass hit my chest like that. I was probably the only person there no on yokes as well.


#17

I have it on now. It’s boss.


#18

Saw them at Doncaster Dome in 1997, they were class, danced my arse off!


#19

Up to and including Jilted they were amazing but have been awful since. Used to have a Prodigy VHS around that time which i watched to death.

The video with them dancing in front of the gate in a field…could never get my legs going that fast :smiley:
