    Everyone thought me, Luka and barti were gonna be the troublesome corner of dissensus but then Third Weapon Third came out the cut and started attacking everyone with reckless abandon. I'm looking tame by comparison again!!!!

    like everyone else, I rate their earliest most purest ardkore (except Charly, no thx) highest, the Firestarter etc stuff is still p good tho

    trying to explain it to Americans who only know them from "smack my bitch up " etc, I compared them to Depeche Mode as an important link, in that case from synthpop to house + techno (as shouted out by LFO), in this obv E'd up ardkore to jungle, while not fully belonging to the latter

    the big beat rocked out whatever late 90s biz I mean, no, tho it's temporal closeness to nu metal does it no favors either

    there's some quote from I think 1 of the Chemical Brothers, I forget the context but like "well, he should just be allowed to do whatever he wants really, he's Keith from The Prodigy"

    but ya teenage idiot energy for sure, Liam making the beats, but it was Keith and the other dude who brought the energy

    49 ain't no age, and definitely rest in power. I hope he's somewhere right now chasing the devil out of earth and into outer space to find another race

    RIP to your mate as well, thx for that story

    that's what I'm talking about tho, there are records - mostly the other hardcore, punk - that evoke experiences and people - some distant, some gone - from youth

    as the Prodigy do to me. the things you don't realize are actually treasured memories in the making.

    what a great video - also, early 90's Manhattan, talk about a lost world!

    That video has inspired me to make a thread about what you visualise when you listen to music, I just haven't got around to it yet.

    See, I've been wondering about that. Not just in connexion with music, but in general, if I'm an especially visual thinker. I was endlessly drawing when I was in school; writing came later. Anyway, this is off topic.
