chems new material didn't work that well live last time i saw 'em...
there's quite a lot of good acts on at around the same time at Witnness (Prodigy, foo fighters, chems, Air, Richard Fearless), which is a bit a shame...
written a quick review if anyone is interested:
"i'll constantly strive for something thats original and a fresh sound, but it gets harder and harder. Sometimes you have to approach something in a different way for it to be fresh again - you have to work in different studios, you have to go to new clubs, you have to listen to new records all the time. And after 10 years of doing the same thing over and over again, it becomes harder to find inspiration, you really have to search."
"To be honest, I haven't been inspired over the last couple of years, there's only been a few moments when I have. the main problem is that dance music has become ever so throwaway in England. there's a new record out every fucking day and it sounds all the same, everyone's afraid to try another beat out or another tempo, they all have to be a club sound."
this is from the same interview where Liam also made the statement about that they wouldnt come back until they had a 'fucking bomb to drop'.
So, in a way, Des has got a point. Looking at those interviews from end of last year and then six months later Liam comes back and announces that he'd still stick to his 'old' sound makes it look a bit as if he had tried to come up with something new and didnt quite manage and therefore decided to settle with the 'tried and tested'?
On the other hand though would it make sense for Prodigy to just change direction for the sake of it?
I rather have them sounding good as they did 5 years ago and staying true to themselves than doing something 'new' no one's into.
and Maxim has posted in his own forum that bgat is not a come back single, but en 'ending of last album'.
I still love the song, even more now listening to it from actual CD, but the whole 'package' that comes with the single is pretty poor. the Dub mix is the most unimaginative thing they have ever released. and the instrumental isn't exactly exciting either. I was really looking forward to that DVD, but the 'a day at work' thing is just about as exciting as the instrumental. 2 minutes of 'making of' from the video with some narrator talking over it and 'explaining' the story. no attempt to make this any kind of special, interesting or at least witty, just boring. its nowhere even near the 'making of' from Poison.
But anyway, it was a great feeling today to walk into a shop and officially go to buy a 'new Prodigy single', I really celebrated that
