The Prodigy - Electronic Punks

(1995, XL-Recordings, XLV 017)

This is the first official Prodigy video released on VHS back in 1995!

That tape contains all videos from their albums Experience (except for Fire, because "the video sucks") and Music For The Jilted Generation. It also contains live tracks, the making of the promo video for Poison, plenty of stupid home-video footage of them clowning around and some wierd polaroid photos.

The live sections of the video were recorded at the Town and Country Club in Leeds, with the venue's name being visible above the stage at numerous points throughout the video.

Most of the home-video footage is mad Keith doing something stupid and hilarious, or the rest of the guys just talking or chilling out.

Running Time: 97min approx
