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; died 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.

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.

i noticed em when i saw "instruments of darkness" video at early 90's.
what to say? original and unique sound of electronic/dance/breakbeat/mix (whatever u call it) part of their opus. more than 20 great tunes... world top 10 artist in that genre/style if u ask me. not much fan of punk so will not give any opinion on that part.

These guys kicked ass in the 90's. I loved every single one of their releases during that time because they fused punk and a fuck you mentality with everything they did and the music was just amazing. All their songs during that time period are trippy and danceable. After Fat of The Land, they went to shit though. I'd have loved to see them live playing older material but now that Keith's dead I doubt that will happen.

Sadly a group I've never seen live and never will now that Keith tragically passed away...
One of the most influential groups on me and while their output recently has been a bit samey, I still think they carved a style out for themselves in the end and left an absolutely massive legacy behind. RIP Keith Flint

So tragic about Keith Flint passing. He was quite unique frontman on the stage.
Prodigy was something else when they released Jilted & Fat Of The Land. They stood out clearly from everything else at the time and was basically alone with what they did. It was electric punk at its best. Howlett, an absolute genius creating the stuff they did and can only tip my hat for this mans studio-prowess.
I can also mention that my brother is a total rock'n'roll head, but simply loved Prodigy's music back in the 90´s. "Absolutely damn cool stuff" was his word about them.
Commercial or not, they had something to show for, and did so. My absolute respect to Prodigy.

Well i'm sorry for Keith Flint that passed away and respect his family and friends R.i.P.

Strange he commited suicide for something ...well...ermm....as what he does in his clips and such is unrealisable .

Anyway proof is that we humans are only on earth for a short while and he had a wonderful life as many artists as us random people .

You were a Bitch named Charly that had One Love in a Voodoo People that could Start the Dance everywhere .
