    Thanks guys I appreciate it.

    I've been reading some quotes from Keith and it almost sounded like he had a death wish. About how he "wasn't saving up for anything", and was "cashing it all in now". I know he talked about suicide on multiple occasions, but I don't think anyone took him serious.

    Still in shock and saddened.

    My friend when I was younger, Chris and I, were at that age when we got into The Prodigy, that we totally idolized the band. All the goofy stories we came up with at the time, and the majority of them involved The Prodigy in one way or another.

    Pre internet days, we had heard about the performance of Break and Enter from Electronic Punks, where Keith comes out in the giant inflatable balm things, well we visualized it as one of the ball things from American Gladiators. Oh man, the shit we would come up with!

    Yeah, seeing Liam with Keith's Champions Of London belt, Keith's dog Cyrus leading the casket, Keith's green mic on his coffin, and seeing Liam, Maxim, and Leeroy together exiting their car all really got to me. Seeing all of the fans and people there did bring a smile to face and they turned it more into a celebration, which nicely helped counter the whole depressing factor.







    I'm also a member of a well known Prodigy fan community known as Brainkiller and a few of the more hardcore members and myself have a little group called Snooping Basterds. We made this poster and wrote our names and a local member left it at the church for us. My name is in the bottom right corner...

    Badass. I saw them around that time.
    (But, unless my memory is failing in my old age, what I saw was a TOTALLY different show: no live instruments, for instance.

    The things I've heard from some of those who actually knew Keith, I believe he killed himself.

    Tonight at sonic temple, papa roach covered firestarter. They were the replacements for the prodigy. They did a heartfelt speech about Keith and they had his face on the drum set for the whole show. Nice little tribute. Was hoping there was going to be some sort of a tribute tonight.

    One of only a couple of live shows without Maxim. There was one other during the beginning of The Day Is My Enemy tour where Keith took over for the whole show. I do believe The Prodigy are not over.

    I agree.

    I'm seriously considering getting my passport, just for when that day comes...

    So I've been listening to "Invaders Must Die" often lately and for some reason, finally, I'm getting a strong "War of the Worlds" vibe to it. Anyone know if it was meant to be a conceptual album?

    As far as I know, the title was the band's fuck you to people that tried to get in between the three of them. Some of the issues that divided them during the Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned era when Keith and Liam were fighting. Liam scrapped the original tracks recorded for AONO as he felt it sounded too much like Fat Of The Land Part 2. Plus the single Baby's Got A Temper got slammed in the pressed. It was also as a statement to other electronic acts that tried to take their place. I don't think War Of The Worlds itself was exactly the concept, but they used imagery representing them as outsiders or an invading force taking over the world. They also used some horror and dystopian imagery for other singles. But mostly the album was about the three of them reuniting as one after Liam pretty much went solo for AONO when they were fighting. This was their big return. This was their band album.



    Liam and Keith got into it again during the lead up to The Day Is My Enemy. Originally, Liam wrote some tracks for an album called How To Steal A Jet Fighter back in 2012/2013, which he ended up scrapping. Keith was angry and worried about Liam taking too long and wanting to get back out on the road. It was brought up in an interview. Liam ended up starting over and writing The Day Is My Enemy in a little over a year. The title came from how he would work at all hours into the night and wouldn't surface from his studio until the morning hours. One time a fox ran across in front of him and that's how the fox became that album's image. Britain was apparently having issues with foxes in the city. The idea of this fox scurry around the city at night causing trouble.

    It would be amazing if those at some point got released. Or maybe they did and I missed it (would NOT be the first time).
