1993. everybody in the place (fairground remix) on a rave compilation, i was 7, then i heard experience, fell in love with it

then hearing music for the jilted generation asking the question how are these the same guys? cat eye contacts?

then hearing firestarter and breathe wondering what happened to the long haired hippy raver and who was this new punk geezer?

still blows my mind to this day that the prodigy even fucking exist. bowie is meant to be the master of reinvention.. but fuck.. come on and take a look what happened to the prodigy in less than a decade

it was smth new, fresh, original and bangin
I was 12 years old
cousin has lent me MFTJG cassette
I came back home and I lestened to full album...
there were not Breathe and Firestarter :( but every song was awesome :)

then in 1997 - my father bought me TFOTL album and The Prodigy smacked me up :)

1994 after hearing No Good in a compilation named Now 28. After that, I bought MFTJG and got hooked. By 1996 I nearly had all their singles.

first time I've encountered The Prodigy was around 2001-2002 during a holiday camp. I've been back then more into rock and metal music and some dude noticed that (propably because of the Metallica/Manowar t-shirts, yea, that's gonna be the reason for sure) and gave me a cassette with his random music to listen to and there was Breathe on it. had no idea it was The Prodigy, thought it was some Marilyn Manson, cause it sounded to me like this modern, dark, rock music. later on came Baby's Got A Temper and Spitfire and the rest sorta' rolled with it during the years to come. I liked them despite the fact that they had nothing to do with the music I was listening to. Illumination came in 2008 when my classmate came up to me and said that The Prodigy's gonna play in Cracow on a festival and the idea of goin' to a Prodigy gig just came to me as a really cool idea.. so I've started to check their whole albums, not just the random hit singles, started with Music For The Jilted Generation and The Fat Of The Land, and ended up listening probably to nothing else but The Prodigy non stop from dusk 'till dawn for the next few months (my brother hated me for that). later on I've bumped into the rest of electronic music of the '90's, so Crystal Method, Chemical Brothers, Future Sound Of London, Juno Reactor, Empirion, Fluke became a bigger part of my playlist.

and from that moment The Prodigy still remains my fav band alongside with Fields Of The Nephilim, Juno Reactor and Coil.

2003..ish.

the crappiest movie introduced me to the best music. watching charlie's angels in a cinema. after hearing breathe, didn't watch the movie at all, the tune was all i was thinking about.

though, i heard them in the 90s when i was very young and i remember dancing to out of space on the streets (someone played it on a boombox) when i was 7 or smth. and when i saw keith's photo in 98 in a newspaper, i thought they were russian

In between my releases polls I felt like doing a poll that takes on the question what year did you become a Prodigy fan. Please be very honest I'm interested in seeing what era's we're all from! :)

'91 for me, I got lucky by having a foreigner for a neighbor who was into them so they got me at a young age. I fell into them even more around '96 when their sound swung back into my interests.


Great thread.

The moment I heard Everybody in the Place. I didn't know much back in those days, but I bought a cassette rave compilation a year or so later I'd seen advertised on TV called Technostate:

And must have listened to it a million times. They grew on me even more when someone gave me a copy of Experience.

PS: should mention the year! 1991. God I'm old. But it's nice to have been there at the start.

They're my favourite band ever. Best act of the past 30 years IMO - but I still class Beatles as the best ever.

Prodigy are my favourite band. Beatles are the best band. Maybe a bit of a paradox in the view of some but hey ho - you don't have to love the best the most.

I've loved their tracks from the very beginning, but actually became a real fan in 1994 after listening to Poison.
