The Prodigy

Fat of the Land


back in stock on double vinyl 'music for the jilted generation' despite commercial success was a harsh underground rave statement proving that essex rave auteur liam howlett could transcend the novelty acid house of many of his peers 'fat of the land' however showed a very different side to the prodigy the exaggerated punk pastiche of 'firestarter' and 'breathe' with vocals provided by the band's cartoon johnny rotten keith flint proved that the prodigy were at heart showmen 'the fat of the land' was as influenced by american punk as it was by any form of dance music demonstrated with a furious cover of l7's 'fuel my fire' and such a destructive passionate fusion saw the prodigy topping festival bills all over the world elsewhere 'mindfields' and the irrepressibly controversial 'smack my bitch up' were brutal techno assaults but driven by a defiantly heavy metal sensibility 'the fat of the land' may have alienated the raving 'oldskool' but it deservedly elevated the prodigy to national public enemies
