After 18 years of being presumably locked away in a Warner vault, the final song that RHCP ever recorded with Dave Navarro has been unearthed. It's pretty awesome.

It's 20 years ago this week since Keith Flint and co danced and got stoned in the abandoned Aldwych tube tunnels. Firestarter sounds just as vital as it did in 1996. :dance:

In addition, I've come across this rareish Prodigy music video from 1992. Dat CGI must have been absolute cutting edge 24 years ago. :pantano:

That's how we thought the future would look! What annoys me is that there's very little footage of The Prodg on stage from those days (that I know of) so the CGI really gets in the way of what I'd prefer to be watching i.e. The original Prodigy on it proper. Ah well.

As a big Prodge fan at the time (well, I still buy all of their stuff but kind of just out of tradition nowadays), I know a few
bits and pieces about this video.

Firstly the bit where they're sitting around the campfire, they are actually burning copies of Mixmag, who had run
a story about the Prodigy 'killing' rave music by starting the kiddie-rave movement with Charly. I think I read that from
their unofficial bio, Electronic Punks. And also, at the time they were really disappointed with the quality of this video
for Fire, they were promised 'cutting edge' CGI effects and what they got back was, well, just watch the video if you
haven't already ... That is the reason why the video does not appear on their 'Greatest Hits' VHS, also called
"Electronic Punks", of which I still have a retail copy at home.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Punks

I don't think it's on the Their Law DVD either (which I also have) ...

I remember that now. And I remember Howlett being asked about it in the Melody Maker (I think) and his response was something along the lines of "It bathplug needed killing!"

I have been really getting into The Prodigy lately, sounds better than today's commercialised EDM. Breathe is my personal favourite.

Ironically, I find the first album a bit heavy going these days and Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned has always been a bit hit and miss. Music For The Jilted Generation, Fat Of The Land, Invaders Must Die and The Day Is Our Enemy are all quality.

Listening to The Day is our Enemy just earlier today, they still have it. Would have loved to be alive for the 90s British rave scene

I recently visited Aldwych station, fascinating to go down to a spooky abandoned tube station. My wife took some pictures too:

I like the EEC poster - how beautifully relevant now. Not sure about 'eat, drink and be pretty downstairs' though. That could be taken the wrong way...

Yeah great pics. I think there's something hauntingly interesting about closed tube stations. Maybe I played Tomb Raider 3 too much back in the day.

Incidentally, if you haven't seen The Prodigy live then do so before they jack it in completely. I've seen a few gigs and even a big rock band like Metallica were like timid sheep on stage compared to this lot live.

I can confirm this. I'm rather a person standing still in the back, but this was one of the few bands that got me moving without being drunk.


And RIP Prince. The influential artists dropping by flies, it seems. Makes you feel a bit uncomfortable.

Rest in peace, Prince. One of the true legends without a doubt.

I was never a massive fan to be honest but even I understand what a loss this is.

This article explains just why 2016 appears to be such a bad one. Tragically logical when you think about it.

My one Tenuous link is that my step-mothers brother was Princes' maths teacher at school. He always said he was a nice and normal kid who just happened to be called Prince.

And I thought he was funny in New Girl, too.

Not overwhelmed, not underwhelmed. Not quite sure what to think of Radiohead. I honestly have to be in the mood for them a lot of the time. When I'm in the mood for them, I adore them, and end up building up a grand expectation to have my mind blown about some new genre they'll create with their latest track. This track doesn't blow my mind, and I don't think I have very much desire to listen to it again. But Radiohead are one of the few bands I generally make reappraisals for in music :D If it's on their new album I'll be listening to it in a better context probably. On that subject, does anybody know yet when the new album's coming out?

Dunno, they've only released Burn The Witch so far.

Regardless, I wouldn't be surprised if any forthcoming album has a kind of Kid A-at-the-Philharmonic vibe, since I believe Jonny Greenwood's been looking to get an orchestra involved for a long time (and their effort for the Spectre theme song had a lot of orchestral pieces in too).

Dunno about the rest of you, I'm not feeling the new Radiohead song at all. This is my favourite of theirs...


Never really "got" Radiohead, I always find them to be a bit too downbeat and dour for my liking. Plus, Mansun were the better band in the late 1990s, yet they're basically ignored and underrated, grumblegrumblegrumblegrumble, ad nauseam.

Also, echo the love for the EEC poster down Aldwych. Brilliant!

Update: Radiohead released "A Moon Shaped Pool" on Sunday. It's a gorgeous album, go and find it, buy it, whatever.

Lyrically it's a tad basic, but I don't care, this song is all about John Squire's guitar, and it's brilliant. :dance: :dance: :dance:

It's been out for a month and a half already, but I finally got round to buying Weezer's new self-titled album. There isn't a single bad song on it. It's brilliant, and you should listen to it.

Gonna shamelessly plug what I believe is a really good remix of a tune from F-Zero Climax (a futuristic racing game with hovercrafts going way beyond the speed of sound on floating courses, if no one has heard of it before). As are most of the songs from this game series.
