Born date: March 21, 1967
The MC of the band – he started MCing at the age of 14. Though he performed the vocals on some recent Prodigy tracks, his real talent is shown in his way of boosting the live shows. With him, the live songs get a feel totally different from that of the album tracks.
He was into writing poetry and verse (serious!) before he learnt MCing from his brother, Starkey Ban Tan. Also, Maxim was most into reggae music.
He went to Jack Hunt secondary school in Peterborough (North-Cambridgeshire) and is now going out with a girl he wants to marry (thanks to Craig Williams for the info)
Before concerts, he isn’t thinking about anything – he simply switches off. It’s not until they go on stage that he becomes focused. And he never had a stage fright.
He is the last person to join the Prodigy for their first ever gig.
He loves to scare the crowd and his aim is to appear on stage as a knight in a full suit of armour and a gauntlet, so he can scare seven shades of the brown stuff out of everyone in the audience!
It was revealed in an interview in January 1999 that his girlfriend was going to have a baby soon!
He’s a really strange figure – for example sometimes he wears a green skirt (because it’s comfortable) and has gold braces over his teeth, just to mention a few of his crazes. Actually it’s a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing with him – he can completely transform his ”real” self into a ”monster” who likes to intimidate people... (”The transformation takes place gradually as I get changed. But it’s totally different personality.” – Maxim)
