Keith Flint's solo works
Keith Flint was the third member of Prodigy to spread his wings to do a solo project, after MC, Maxim and their dancer, Leeroy Thornhill (who left the group). His first own solo project called Flint wasn't big succes. The band had four members; Keith on vocals, Jim Davies (Prodigy live guitar, ex-Pitchshifter) on guitar, Kieron Pepper (Prodigy live drummer, ex-RealTV, ex-Happy Gilmore) and Tony Howlett (co-wrote BGAT, but not related to Liam Howlett) (both) on drums. Kieron's role in Flint band was to be the bassist on recordings, but on live he sat down behind drums and left the bass to Rob Holliday.
They managed to do several gigs and their first live gig was held at Scala, London 11 June 2003. The first limited single was called 'Asteroids' released in May 2003 (as one sided pink vinyl 10" limited to 2000 copies). The first official single was 'Aim 4', released on 14th July 2003. The video for the single was directed by Jonas Åkerlund who also directed 'Smack My Bitch Up', among others. After that the band was supposed to release their debut album 'Device #1' produced by Youth 28th July 2003. Because 'Aim 4' single sales were terribly low record label and band decided to broke their contract, cancel last 3 gigs and the whole album was aborted and later the band decided to split up.
After quiting the label band members started working new versions of all tracks and planed to re-produce album and release it with new label. New version of Asteroids was played on Radio One, and new version of No Name No Number produced by Serio Galoyan (T.a.t.u.) can also be found from the net. U.N.C.L.E. also remixed Aim #4 and Leeroy also remixed two tracks.
Anyway the new album was never released and all band members later formed their new bands. Jim and Kieron with both Hyper and Victory Pill, Keith had a solo project called Clever Brains Fryin.
Flint has also remixed Marilyn Manson's single 'mOBSCENE'. Keith even came up with his own vocals for the remix. The following text was found from the official Marilyn Manson pages: "Pay attention! In London, we vandalized a Versace billboard with two gigantic Marilyn Mice and had an amazing crowd sing along to the three piano numbers. Keith Flint (The Prodigy) presented me with his new band’s remix of mOBSCENE on which he sings. We discussed illegal behavior, participated in illegal behavior and became the best of friends over a bottle of Absinthe. " Marilyn Manson 21 April 2003
