T404[edit]

I removed the factoid that Liam's first 10 demo tracks were produced on the "legendary T404". When I search Google for this, only Wikipedia mirrors return the name of this "legendary synthesizer". I suspect W30 would be the correct form, but could someone corrobate this? JFW | T@lk 16:55, 20 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Hi JFW. You are of course right, there is no T404 Roland. I meant the Roland TB-303, which this page describes as 'defining the acid sound for rave music':

http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Roland%20corporation

For further confirmation, try googling for: roland TB-303 prodigy

My confusion came about because there is a software synthesizer called T404, in homage to the contributions of the TB-303...

Thanks for pointing it out. I'll make the change.

does anyone know what song of their's is in that new car commercial? it is the one where there are a bunch of cars zooming around each other, nearly hitting one another. Thanks

"You'll Be Under My Wheels" I think. --Sp82 14:48, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Warchild: 1 Love[edit]

I know it's quite minor, but I didn't notice anything about their contribution to the Warchild: 1 Love compilation [NME]. They covered Specials' "Ghost Town" and Jimmy Eat World covered "Firestarter".

'The Rev'[edit]

In the 'Former Live Members' section, the name 'The Rev' links to the current Avenged Sevenfold drum player. Either it's meant to refer to the former Towers Of London guitar player, also known as 'The Rev', or it should say "'The Rev' (drums)".

(I'm not actually sure which one of them played with The Prodigy, but seeing as Snell (who quit Towers Of London at the same time as The Rev) is mentioned as a former drummer around the same time, and it makes an allusion to the former TOL member's time in the The Prodigy on his new band's (DAY 21) wiki page, I think the former TOL guitar player seems most likely)

The Prodigy's 5th studio album is expected to be released in late 2008 or early 2009. No official release date has been set. Although the track listing is unknown, the band has performed a number of as-yet unreleased songs live. Whether any of these songs will or will not appear on the album is unconfirmed. The album will be released under the band's new record label, "Take Me to the Hospital".[1]

History[edit]

During the Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned tour the band debuted two new songs, "Warning" and "Dead Ken Beats". "Warning" features Keith Flint on vocals and consists of heavy bass lines and guitar riffs. "Dead Ken Beats" prominently features a sample of the Dead Kennedys' song "California Über Alles", and vocals by Maxim.

The band played another new track during the Their Law tour. The song, which was printed on a setlist as "Heatwave", is thought to have been renamed "Heatwave Hurricane", due to Liam Howlett listing it among his favourite songs in a recent interview.[citation needed] It has been described as "something like a cross between 'Hotride' (live version) and the 'Firestarter' remix".[citation needed] A short clip can be seen on YouTube, revealing that the song includes a sample of "I'm Five Years Ahead of My Time" by The Third Bardo, a song which is also featured on Howlett's Back to Mine compilation.

At the Sheffield and Birmingham gigs (May 16 and May 17, 2008 respectively), the band played three new tunes: "World's on Fire", "Warriors Dance", and "Unstoppable". They also played a new version of "Dead Ken Beats". At the Gatecrasher festival on May 25, 2008, the band played another new tune: "Mescaline".

The new album was set to be released in summer 2007. However, in a May 2007 interview Howlett stated, "The album will be first quarter of next year, with one single before. It is going well and we are loving it. There are a lot of ideas, maybe 25, we are now starting to finish the best tunes and getting vocals written."[2] Howlett revealed in an April 2008 interview that he had three more months of work left for the new album. He also said that he has a working album title and song titles, but is not ready to publicly announce them.[3]
