Report by Evelyn Jowett:
Back in the Boiler Room, the rapturous roar of the crowd can only mean one thing; the pioneers of Stadium Rave The Prodigy are in the building. Indeed, the crew swiftly appears, with mastermind Liam Howlett delivering driving electronic riffs, as manic cyber-punk MCs Keith Flint and Maxim Reality prowl the stage like men possessed. MC Maxim asks, “Where are all my sweet Prodigy warriors?” to a delirious crowd, before the buzzing mayhem of ‘Breathe’ reverberates through the venue, whipping punters into a veritable dancing frenzy. As the MCs glower and strut around the stage defiantly, it is clear that this revolutionary crew is back with a majestic vengeance. Indeed, their recent single ‘Omen’ has punters thrashing about hysterically. After blitzing through an the incendiary guitars of ‘Firestarter’, the howling harmonica of ‘Voodoo People’, and the Atari-style bleeps of ‘Invaders Must Die’, they launch into the deep bass grooves of ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ which has the crowd chanting along. They finish with the electronic bleeps of ‘Out Of Space’. Quite fitting really, as tonight, The Prodigy quite literally propel this crowd into “another dimension,” reclaiming their title as the comeback kings of Rave.
