Title: Death of the prodigy dancers
Post by: fj on November 06, 2001, 05:38:07 AM
This was a cool track only it was only live. this would of being bloody awsome if they made it in the studio, which brings me to my next question...

Did they?

no idea, but probably no.
I thought I have already posted one interesting question (for me) ;),but I'm unable to find whether it's posted or not...
have you any notion of the reason because liam opted to include a track like goa (the heat the energy, part 2) in voodoo people single instead of a brand new track like we eat rhythm??
sometimes I cannot understand artists.. ;D,
also, I've seen that the out of space elektra single contains jericho-live version... does it sound good? was it recorded in 1992? this is one on the few prodigy items that I still do not have.
thanks

Goa, I like this track... Appreciate it a bit more!... We Eat Rhythm probably wouldn't fit on this single anyway!

Yes that version of Jericho is good and far better than the live version of Music Reach on the european singles of OOS. It was recorded in 1992

No, for as far as I know they never did a studio recording of Death Of The Prodigy Dancers. As for We Eat Rhythm, it was already out before Voodoo People got released, so it wasn't new anymore - why put an older tune on a new single? Liam still had Goa which he needed to put out, so I think the choice was easily made. Aslo, I think that Goa fits better on the Voodoo People single than We Eat Rhythm. The live version of Jericho is better than the live version of Music Reach, I agree.

He probaly did this cuz he wanted to give a faster chance o give people to hear the second half of The Heat The Energy which was of course, cut in half for the MFTLG cd.  I'd like to see liam release the FULL version of The Heat (The Energy)

Oh, interesting, so it was meant as one piece?

But it wasn't recorded as one single track, that's for sure.
Liam also said that he did Goa together with his studio-engineer Neill McLellan live tweaking

A stunning track I find.

Really, they should have putted remastered old tracks
on the second CD of the E.Expanded, would have been way more thrilling then.

Yeh it was originally 1 track but Liam had to cut half of it off, he also had to put ther radio edit of One Love and totally drop We Eat Rhythm cos CDs can only hold 75 mins of choons.

Interesting, back then they had a whole bunch of tracks and they couldnt even decide which on to put on the album or if there's going to be any room for another one... and now, well you all know what's happening now.

They, unfortunately, cant even put together and album with more than 8-10 tracks. Im dissapointed in a way cause of that. Dont know, we all deserver a little bit more after 5 years of silence, dont you agree?

If you see it this way you're right, but I think that it's rather a mark of quality. As Liam stated once, he wrote the older tracks so fast, it was horrible, because they all sounded the same (not my opinion here).
On the FOTL he wrote more slowly and got the perfectionist out.

But 5 years are a lot, that's right.
He didn't write all the time, though. When did he start? Winter of 2001? As it sounded he's still in the writing-process. He needed about 1+1/4 years for the FOTL, afaic.
I think it's alright. He still is very fast.

Greets,
Ekko

Anyway.. in 1998 Liam stated that he had written 5 tunes and will probably release them later as an EP.. so I wonder where are the tunes now.. :)

Don't get me wrong here, Ekko. I understand that it's a mark of quality but there's only one thing that doesnt fit in here: He started to write only last winter so I dont think he was writing for the whole 5 years. Right? So basically, he will write the new album in the period of...what...12 months?

As for the EP  he was talking about in '98... well... he said a lot things back then  ;)

Bye now.

Post by: Ekko on January 23, 2002, 02:11:28 PM
Yep, they often say lots of things that do not come true later on... ;-)

Maybe 3 of those 5 tracks he wrote back then were just the new tunes they played at the recent concerts.
You're right about the period, it's not that long.
But let's say they bring out the record in Autumn '02, they still wrote 1 1+2 years on it. Plus some tracks already written in '98. Quite a long time, if you ask me. Compared to the older records of course.

Aw, all those speculations...
We need facts!

I got another version of Death of THe Prodigy Dancers, it's on a bootleg called Music for the Voodoo crew.  At the end of a set recorded in '92.

Yep, I got that one too. Dont know if its from The Music For The Voodoo crew... I'll have to check up on that.

About Liam writing the early tunes fast:  As for the first album, I agree. Although great, The tunes does sound kind of similar in construction, sound and shape. Also, the bpm is at 140-145 on about every track on Experience. Liam had a specific formula on how to write a song, and he got very fast at it, thus releasing an album and a bunch of singles within a year of their breakthrough. And don't forget, the band was touring heavily at the same time!

As for 'Jilted', I just don't understand. They were STILL touring heavily around 1993-94, as well as doing a BUNCH of Remixes. How on earth could Liam find the time to write such a vast amount of INCREDIBLE tracks, which to my ears are *very* varied in sound, tempo, structure and even genre.. That has got to be the clearest example of God-given inspiration ever! Just think about the fact that tracks like 'We eat Rhythm', the amazing mix of 'One Love' and their heaviest song ever, 'Rhythm of Life', didn't fit on the album. Any other dance/club artist would have killed for any of these tracks, but on Jilted, they did not even fit as album fillers as there was already 78 minutes of even better music on there.

Without a doubt, this was the Prodigy at their finest hour...
