The Prodigy

Profile:
British electronic group, founded in 1990. Their first release was "What Evil Lurks" EP (1991). Their early music was mostly rave/breakbeat, but has become more mainstream mixing in rock guitars with the third album "The Fat Of The Land" (1997).

Band members:
Liam Howlett - head of the group, keyboards, synthesizers, programming, laptop, computer, samples, sequencers, turntables, drum machines (1990-present)
Maxim - MC, beatboxing, vocals (1990-present)

Former members:
Keith Flint - dancing (1990-2019); lead vocals (1995-2019)
Leeroy Thornhill - dancing, occasional live keyboards, synthesizers (1990-2000)
Sharky - dancing (1990-1991)

The original Prodigy line-up was Liam on keyboards and Leeroy, Keith and Sharky as dancers. Maxim was recruited at short notice to MC at their debut gig at Labrynth in Dalston, London. Sharky left the group at Christmas 1990 after they got their record deal with XL as she didn't want to devote more time to the band. Their initial deal with XL was for 4 singles, with XL paying a £1500 advance prior to the first single.
Liam Howlett briefly used the pseudonym Earthbound (6) (named after Liam's studio) for the original white-label summer releases of "One Love" (1993).
Leeroy Thornhill left the band in 2000.
Keith Flint died by suicide on 4 March 2019.

The Prodigy = Legends Forever. Nothing esle to say about them, because their music is great and amazing. Unlike today's artist's music, The Prodigy still can make that loudness and madness sound of EDM like in the 1990s. I was actualy born in 2007, but as young kid in early 2010s, my parents introduced me to 20th Century Music and I instantly loved it, and there was also The Prodigy. After over decade,I finally know the artists and their songs when I hear the melody of that song. Amazing Legends of 20th Century Music (incl. other artists of 20th Century Music and from specific decade like 1990s, 1980s, 1970s or 1960s and more) = They Live Forever! A Huge Shotout to my parents for introducing me to the 20th Century Music and making my early 2010s childhood amazing and unforgettable. In future I will introduce my kids to this 20th Century Music, so then they will introduce their kids to 20th Century Music. Nothing negative from me on any 20th Century Music Artist (also nothing negative from me on The Prodigy), only positive. As I already said: Amazing Legends of 20th Century Music (incl. other artists of 20th Century Music and from specific decade like 1990s, 1980s, 1970s or 1960s and more) = They Live Forever!

"No Good" is still my favourite prodigy track, amazing melody, and 1994 it must have been just insane... Great band with their own electronic style

Early Prodigy were great. After 92 crap!. Went into that silly commercial pop world like most do. Moby etc Early Prodigy however were good. Why Your Love wasnt released as a single is beyond me. I bought the Charly record just cause of the B side!. Android (What Evil Lurks)and Pandemonium also good.

MY ratings. Experience 8/10 Jilted 8.5/10 Fat 7/10 Gunned 6/10 Invaders 6/10 Enemy 5/10 Tourists unsure havent listened to it that much. prodigy had got a bit stale. Liam still has the talent to make tunes. keith never made any of the music contrary to popular belief..

The Prodigy is Liam Howlett - the first two albums and the singles and B-sides from those LP's is where it's at. What came after is nothing to do with the rave scene and the underground. End of!!

I will always treasure my signed copy of The Prodigy Experience, that my friend got for me when they played in Atlanta. He worked for the Ritz, and pretty much dealt with every single VIP that came through. R.I.P in Peace, Keith, an your Madcap Delivery! This is the music that people don't expect, but are rewarded by. There should be textbooks about this band, along with Praga Khan, and Quarophonia. Pure sonic genius and energy that encompassed a latent feeling, even after the "Rave" style was long burnt out.

I saw the prodigy at knebworth when they supported oasis, final support act, they were mega, Keith came out onto the structures into the crowd, i was literally a quarter of a meter from grabbing the guys hand, a long, mental and once in a lifetime night, from underground rave clubs to 125000 people, like all people have said already, they are awesome and then prodigy name, Liam is a prodigy, everything from the second album showed how serious and unique they are, by far of the land the fusion of techno punk was mind blowing, Keith, you are a legend, I wish I’d grabbed your hand like the others I did throw myself forward, either way, I hope ya in music heaven brother, so much love for the music. ❤️

Been a fan since the summer of '94.Seen them 5 times in different countries.The only thing will regret all of my life is to never been able to take an autograph from the four of them.Not for the lack of trying - the guards on those gigs were very hard.Anyway.Too little,to late.....Since '94 they are present in my numerous homes - cassettes,magazines,clips,CD's,posters.On all of my birthdays,celebrations or just on a lonely,rainy sunday....It's like a closest thing to a dear, fond friend has past away....Rest,Flint,you are missed still.
