    Princess Superstar just posted an unreleased demo she did with The Prodigy back during Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. It seems she was working on a vocal version of The Way It Is called Jesus Christ I'm Nice that ended up being scrapped. But Liam did take bits of her vocals and used them on the track Memphis Bells.

    Yikes... I don't blame him for scrapping it.

I remember watching this when it broadcasted for the first time. Also, their live performance of Breathe at V97 that was broadcasted on the MTV Music Awards with Madonna introducing them (as she owns Maverick, who released TFOTL in the US). Later on was their Live At The 10 Spot performance, which was their Brixton '97 performance.

    I am so happy they're not giving up after Keith's death. I thought No Tourists was great and curious to see where Liam takes it from here musically.

    I'm still heartbroken over Keith's death, but hopefully Liam and Maxim will decide to perform live again.

    Listening to the Invaders Must Die album for the first time right now and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it! The title track is in the Wipeout game I recently purchased and I can't get it out of my head, so thought it'd be time to listen to the album. What a major shot of energy this album is, it's giving me a much needed boost after feeling low energy/down yesterday. I need to give later day Prodigy a chance, never really listened to much of it. I discovered them as a kid back in 96/97 from the Wipeout XL soundtrack, still the best video game soundtrack ever imo.

    Wipeout XL was amazing, both game and soundtrack! I remember it was before the Firestarter single was in any stores here in the US, so I loaded the PlayStation disc into my CD player and recorded the instrumental to tape and listened to that obsessively. Actually, on that game disc is an exclusive alternate mix of Chemical Brothers track Dust Up Beats, which is different from its vinyl only version.

    I quite enjoyed Invaders Must Die. I know that era was very big for them as a band as it was seen as their big return to form after Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned kinda came and went. They also held their first Warrior's Dance Festival, which was recorded for World's On Fire Blu-ray/DVD/CD. I got to see them at Roseland Ballroom in NYC for the Invaders Tour just after the album dropped worldwide. That was one hell of a show.

    This is my favorite track off Invaders, which they played an awesome re-edit/tweaked mix at Roseland that I wish they released...


    Fun little fact, after the Omen, Warrior's Dance, and Take Me To Hospital videos/singles, Thunder was actually meant to be the final single. Liam was working on a new mix for it, but instead did the Re-Amped verson of Invaders Must Die. There were actually promos with Thunder remixes from the canceled, with one showing up on the Invaders EP with the Re-Amped version and b-side Mescaline CD, another on their Invaders 7", and another on the expanded Invaders Must Die 2CD/DVD reissue.

    Working my way up- on The Day is My Enemy now. Also enjoying it. Hoping for a new album later this year..considering Liam has been working on it for over a year now.

    Is Leeroy officially back in the group? Noticed they were hanging recently.

    I still havenít really listened to TDIME, despite picking it up on vinyl. My immediate impression was it was like the off cuts from IMD, and I liked IMD, but wanted something different. But Iíve probably been premature in writing it off.

    Facebook kinda took over, which there's The Prodigy Invaders, The Prodigy Warriors, and Dirtchamber groups. A couple of Discord ones, The Prodigy Warriors and we're working on a Brainkiller one.

    The Brainkiller forums are still going strong though, but perhaps a little quieter these days. When news and stuff comes out, it gets active again.

    Been trying to bring BK into the 21st century...
    http://www.brainkiller.it/forum/index.php

    Been a member all the way back to when it was the Claustrophobic Prodigy Page days, since 2001-ish. It is technically based in Italy. I remember when they premiered tracks Trigger and Nuclear live on festival tours. There was the whole build up for Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned Version 1 with Baby's Got A Temper. Then BGAT got a slagged by reviewers and Liam scrapped it all and started over. Mad times then. That's why we ended up hosting our own little music competition in 2003 cuz we were sick and tired of waiting for AONO V2. That comp became the Music From The Jilted Generation series. My track was 1 of a dozen of so tracks out of 70 entries voted onto volume 1 back in the day. A couple of tunes off it even got played on Radio 101, one of the major Italy radio stations, thanks to the webmaster.



    Those were fun times. We ended up doing 5 volumes and a couple of album remix comps. We were gonna do a 6th one up until Keith passed, which dampened many of ours spirits.

    There was also Nekozine for a while, which was another amazing fan forum that sadly went defunct. Those were the 2 go-to forum sites back in the day for anything Prodigy.

    I've made lots of good friends through The Prodigy fan community. A couple dozen of us have our own little personal BK chat on Messenger to keep in touch.

    Going back to the launch of No Tourists, Liam did an online radio interview where he hinted that he was already working on something new and they had something big planned for 2019. Plus there were other hints from posts and articles, such as Dizzee Rascal being in the studio and Shahin Badar (the Smack My Bitch Up epic bridge vocalist) went into the studio to record stuff. Engine Earz, who mastered No Tourists, also mentioned how they were listening to Keith's vocals, prepping the next steps when they became aware of his passing. So it seems something has been brewing for a little while, then was put on hold for a little bit after Keith passed. It seems Liam wants to power on and make another record. I imagine we'll get something in 2021. If there's one band that could do this, it's The Prodigy. Between Keith and the coronavirus, it's kind of a bummer as 2020 marks the band's 30th anniversary. Sure Liam is using this time in isolation to cook something new up.

    No shit Dizzee Rascal? Damn.

    Hopefully they can get the LONGMAN Leeroy to do a few shows with them when they are able to play live again.

    Dizzee has been trying to get a Prodigy collab since 2009.

    Last time Leeroy joined them on stage was for a one off during the Their Law Tour in 2005, which celebrated their 15th anniversary. He jumped on stage for a track or 2. Apparently Liam really wanted Leeroy to come back after that night, but Leeroy turned him down and felt that one night was enough. I do think he may be involved in some form with the next album era. Leeroy has been producing music on his own for a while now.

    Shit, 30 years already, wow. I wonder if Liam's got anything planned? He seems to be a forward looking guy, which I think is quite awesome, but maybe he'll do something unique for the anniversary. If not for this, then for the eventual 30th anniversary of the Experience album. I think with Keith's passing, Leeroy may find his way back in as maybe even a semi-permanent member of the band, especially with the 30th anniversary happening. Hearing Badar is back recording with Liam literally gave me chills down my spine. Just started listening to the Fat of the Land as I'm on this big Prodigy kick still. Haven't listened to this album in years, and quite frankly, enough.

    I appreciate that he wants to be his own person and not just a dancer, but damn I enjoyed watching him. Dude has skills.

    I think Leeroy coming back do contribute some music/live synth player and occasional dancing would be ideal.

    In recent days, I think I realize I like later-day Prodigy more than the 90's material (which is classic and still amazing, no doubt) . But just hearing how Liam's composition and production has grown over the years is truly spectacular. Take me to the Hospital is a current favorite.

    Now I'm looking to dig into the rare tracks- b-sides, unreleased material, stuff only in films/compilations.

    Sadly, my Brainkiller Prodigy video which features every single remix Liam Howlett of The Prodigy has done for other artists was blocked worldwide by YouTube

    Sorry Prodigy fans.

    Here's one of my favorite remixes he did...

    those remixes and bonus tracks are fucking bonkers!!

    You know, the styles are very different, there are some similarities, but I have to say, Liam is right up there with Trent in terms of composition/production. I don't think he get enough respect.

    Just came across this article
