A very big change of pace from the previous three entries – this week I’m coming back to the UK to bring you –
I first heard The Prodigy, who were formed in Braintree in 1990 by keyboard player and songwriter Liam Howlett, through my best friend after I moved down to the South east. I’d never really been into that kind of music but there was something raw and exciting about their sound. I loved the tunes off their first album, Experience, but it was their follow up, Music for the Jilted Generation, which cemented them as part of the soundtrack of my late teens and early twenties. I got the chance to see them live while I was at University in 1994, then at Knebworth supporting Oasis in 1996. They were (and probably still are) really a fantastic act to see live. I’ll never forget the sight of Keith fighting his way out of a giant hamster ball on stage. These are three of my favourite tunes of theirs.
Thanks for reading and listening.
