    Wow!

    Well I have been to over 100+ gigs and the Prodigy tonight have to one of the best I have been too.

    The support was a nice suprise as it was a band I have been hoping to see for a while. "Youth of Britain" or "YOB" are a proper marmite band you really do either love them of hate them. Me personally I love them, very funny, very entertaining and at times very impressive. If you go and see this tour you will be certainly entertained at the very least by there projected music videos! If you think the Prodigy, meets The sex pistols, but got mainly influenced by The streets you should be able to get your head around the sound they make.

    The last time I saw the Prodigy was 8 years ago the highlight of there career apparently, I thought after all the speculation they would be pretty poor especially after hearing Maxim, Leroy and Kieth would not be apart of the live act anymore. Well after at least 20 gigs at Birmingham Acadermy including Basement Jaxx, Zero 7, Gomez, Lemon jelly, Groove Armarda I thought nothing would really blow me away and impress me. Well the Prodigy did just that and a lot more!! If you are going to this tour get there early and take it all in, the warm up DJ played some cool old stuff mixed with some breakbeat that I am desperatly trying to get my hands on, very upto date funky music - perfect for getting you in the mood!. If anyone knows the name of this DJ I would love to know as I was very impressed!!

    After a very short interval Prodigy came on First the Drummer that completly blew us a away, then the guitarist , then Liam and of course Maxim and Keith!! Obviously the differances between them have been settled and for the first time I realised how important these two members are to Liams music. The set was the perfect mixture of 4 tracks of the new album including " the way it is", "Spitfire" and "girls" 3 new tracks that are obviously tour set fillers but tracks being worked on togther as a 3 piece rather than just Liam which was nice to see. Mixed up inbetween this lot were "firestarter" but a much more upto date punchy version, "breathe" which was breath taking and the encore consisted off "Smack my bitch up" and "poison".

    They were on for an hour and half and the sound and lighting was the best I have heard and seen ever at the Bham acdermey. If you can get tickets for this tour get one and enjoy!! Truely one of the best gigs I have ever been too and the Prodigy 8 years on is even more impressive than I had ever thought possible!

    Glad you liked it Mat, at the end of the day Liam is the core of the Prodigy anyway, so it doesn't matter who comes and goes from the collective. Scary thing is that they've been in the mainstream since '92. Do you think they are gonna turn into the next Rolling Stones/Rod Stewart/Elton John for the masses??
