05. Downtempo fill
06. Smack my bitch up
07. Baby's got a temper
12. Fuel my fire
After figuring out the new "D" barricade system and going through a big push for
the entrance anyway, I sat through an alrightish New Order set (I still think
orgy do Blue Monday better) and waited to finally see the Prodigy to take stage
for the first time.
Each time New Order finished a track the crowd started chanting "Prodigy".
They had a black curtain set up in front of the Keyboard cradle but it didn't
really look like anything worth hiding happened...
New Order finished and from the blue stage came an old punk track which the
crowd recognised as not being Prodigy and started booing.
"Girl, I want to be with youuuuuuuuuuuu"
Then the Military intro hit - which I thought was awesome, it could easily be
built into a pretty thumping track.
Maxim and Keith take the stage and the crowd goes nuts - but Keith was already
holding a Microphone. Every track besides Mindfields he had a Mic and was more
MC #2 than a dancer... Poison was a duet? How long has that been going on?
Trigger was great, and I think despite it's FOTL-esque sound will make a good
track in the end, the dodgy MP3 floating around from the euro gigs doesn't
really capture it properly.
Nuclear on the other hand... the crowd seemed into it but I thought it was
really weak compared to the rest of the set.
Baby's Got a Temper... Keith dedicated it to "Louie Parker" (I'm not sure of the
significance there?) and it was pretty good, but I had to scream "Get off the
mic and dance you troll!" for a bit of amp-t representation :o)
The more downtempo jam track was really good I wanna hear more in that
direction, but the crowd didn't seem as enthralled so.... who knows.
As expected, Breathe, SMBU, Poison and Firestarter (which I actually didn't
recognise when it started playing, I shouldn't listen to jilted so much) were
huge, the crowd went nuts. And to my surprise, Mindfields was probably the best
track out of the set. I like it as a track, but it's not exactly a stand out
favourite of mine - so I didn't expect I'd be so pumped when it played.
Great set, great day.
I'll have pictures pretty soon too if anyone is interested.
