The Prodigy made their debut with a simple PA at rave night at Labyrinth Club in Dalston, (formerly named The Four Aces Club, in 1988 it transformed into Labyrinth).
The band was very nervous and then, as if things weren’t already tense enough, the band were advised that they were actually only the second act to have played the venue; the first one apparently got bottled off. Liam and the others were terrified. The Prodigy ran through a set that lasted for eigth songs. Liam pushed his primitive keyboards, wrapping circuits around tracks that feature on his demo tape. Cuts like “Android” and “Everybody in the Place” rumbled into The Labyrinth, flowing like smoke through the PA. “The thing I remember most was Joe, the guy who ran it,” Keith recalls. “I said ‘Joe, who else has played here?’. I thought that maybe Zeppelin, the Pistols, all the mighty bands started there. He said ‘well, we don’t have bands. We did have one once but they got dragged off stage so we didn’t have any more!’.”
