Title: title for prodigy book???
Post by: St8ofbass on March 11, 2002, 08:31:53 PM
I urgently need a title for the book (i always hated that voodoo crew one) and hoped some of you could help. can't pay for the suggestion but i'm sure i could dig out something cool, and a free copy of the book ofcourse!  :)
any suggestions? (keeping in mind the fact that the book won't only be read by well informed fans like yourselves.
thanks

hmm... in view of new prodigy image, some unknown facts in the book... how about "the prodigy - under cover"... at least it has got a lot of meanings as well

What about

'Never outpointed'

or

'The Prodigy - Always unfused never infused'

or

'The Prodigy - Everything about souvenirs'

or

'Stress Fortress'

Mhm. Need more creative inspiration, might come back on that later on.

Cheers

'Revieled'
'Facts'
'Never outgunned'
'Nuclear'
'The Full Story'
'Behind The Scenes'
'Live and Direct' or 'Live & Direct'
'In Your Face'
'The Next Dimension' (Or is the word 'dimention'? Not English from origin you know...)
'In The Picture'
'Rock Your Mindfields' or 'Rock the Mindfields'

Some of the titles are probably very... ehm, corny... is that the right word for it? I hope this helps you a bit though mate. I will see if I can think of different titles... Good luck!

hmmmmm,

How about:

"Relevant Terrorists"

reference to Liam's claim that since they are back they are relevant as f**k to the music at the moment.

It might sound b*****ks, :-X but best for the moment, Martin
i'll keep thinking, in the meantime i'll piss off snowboarding for a year or two and get back to you(sound familiar, ha ha!!!)

What about something easy and catchy?

'News From The Dirtchamber' // 'Back from the Dirtchamber'

or

'Giving birth to the chamber of dirt.'
I like that one

'Let's get dirty when it's most worthy'

Kepping with the military theme:

"Prodigy -  Squadron Leaders"

Do you or Liam now about wanting a particular theme Martin??? otherwise we are always gonna keep this army thing in the back of our minds whilst thinkin!!!

Also it would be helpful to know whether they will be shooting a video for this "proposed" single and the possible theme they might take as your book might be released roughly the same time?????

feedback would be great!!!

yep I agree, this military thing will pass,  so dont go base a books title around something so thin...

Does that sound gay? It would work with or without the question mark

Post by: paulbi1 on March 15, 2002, 06:41:30 PM
Martin,

completely chancing the subject, but is i right that you (since writing state of bass -jungle) know a bit about the scene, contacts, etc. as two of my close friends have been writing drum n' bass for two years and have twice appeared on "future music" compliations. Could i send you a bit of their work to see what you think?, they are currently doing a remix for Ian Robertson's next single(???) ,you might of heard of him, i aint.
anyway it would be nice to get some feedback from someone in the know, sort of thing.

p.s thought of another title:
2002: A Punk Oddessey.

Post by: St8ofbass on March 25, 2002, 03:48:58 PM
OK, so the publishers have chosen. the title for my new book will be....

'prodigy'

nothing more, nothing less. Imaginative isn't it?

thanks for all of your suggestions. i'll post more details asap

Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: Ekko on March 25, 2002, 07:29:20 PM
What?

Honestly, only 'Prodigy' might look either quite good or very commercial. Might depend on the cover-artwork.
All those Backstreet Boys and NSync books have mostly just the band's title on front of the cover

Could have been worse though hehe ;)
Anyway, here's a link to Amazon where the book can be ordered (not quite yet though):

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/1860743560/qid%3D1017669125/sr%3D2-3/re/202-1338758-0255022
Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: St8ofbass on April 02, 2002, 12:28:26 PM
don't ordr it from amazon yet. i'm trying to convince the publishers to make the book available to fans on this (and the other good) sites at a discount price. i'll let you know asap

Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: ness on April 17, 2002, 02:17:24 AM
yesss, Martin, it would be very cool, for all of us  ;D

For the title, it could have been better (there has been good propositions there I think), but as said Ekko, all depends on the cover artwork !!! (is the one showed on amazon permanent??? I guess yeah, but... )
And with this "simple" title, the "non-fans" listeners (and so people who will potentially buy your book) won't be confused, I mean, they'll find the book easily in shops... that's an asset...

Post by: St8ofbass on April 17, 2002, 12:40:18 PM
sadly i have little control over things like the cover art work. the first version of the book had ants on the front and an old pic (from australia) of the band in a little insert on the back.  my picture was as big!!!
i'm glad they're using a an easier to recognise design and i do like steve gullick's photo (its also the only post lerrpy band shot) but i'd hoped they would make it look a bit punkier. still the final design has yet to come so my input may still be respected.

oh well
Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: fj on April 18, 2002, 10:32:04 AM
Whats the book about? anything that us fans dont know already?
Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: St8ofbass on April 18, 2002, 01:22:42 PM
probably a lot of stuff you do know, but definately stuff you won't already know. the first version of the book introduced a lot of interesting facts about the band that weren't covered in electronic punks or anywhere else. especially the stuff about liam.
this time round - more in depth biogs on each member (incl Leeroy), and especially Liam. everything since fotl (tours/ solos etc), the new material, on the road anecdotes and so on. its 120,000 words long which is twice the length of 'Voodoo Crew' - so there's bound to be somethings in there that are new to you.

so what you're saying is that it would be a good idea for us all to buy your book?
Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: St8ofbass on April 18, 2002, 02:30:20 PM
i'd love it if you all bought the book!!!
i'd love to give copies to everyone but i only get five myself. trust me, this ain't no get rich quick scheme either.
i'm a fan who is a journalist and just trying to do a good job on the progigy biog.
but if you don't want to buy it there's always the library  :D
Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: Ekko on April 18, 2002, 06:32:07 PM
I'm definitely in, so if you'd be able to say where we can order quick (and cheap) we will ALL buy it, right lads?
Right.

Oh, I have to edit this posting, forgot something:
Is there a slight possibility that there are some details of Liam talking about music (writing, producing, whatever) in the book?

He always seems quite secretive about that...

Cheers
Title: Re: title for prodigy book???
Post by: St8ofbass on April 18, 2002, 06:57:33 PM
there are a few things re the process for the new stuff - but liam is still secretive about the equipment side of things - so its not too techy :)
