The Prodigy



If it’s The Prodigy of Firestarter and Smack Your Bitch Up that gets your adrenalin pumping, here’s good news: No Tourists appears to have been written with 1997’s The Fat Of The Land in mind, and while it isn’t a complete reversion to their earliest days, it takes no chances keeping loyal fans on board: Fight Fire With Fire, for instance – featuring American hip-hoppers Ho99o9 – leaves no doubt as to who the original “trouble starter” was. Aggression levels are therefore dialled up to 11, Liam Howlett’s beats landing with force, and 10 rounds prove pretty exhausting… especially the bruising Champions Of London, which consists of little more than a brutal drum ’n’ bass rhythm, distorted keyboard riff and Charly-like amphetamine-fuelled, sped-up voices. Even making it through opening one-two combo Need Some1 and Light Up The Sky takes courage. Don’t, however, throw in the towel before Barns Courtney’s acid flashbacks on Give Me A Signal.

About Long Live Vinyl

The Beatles or The Rolling Stones? Issue 21 of Long Live Vinyl celebrates the moment 50 years ago when the two biggest bands on earth went head to head on record-shop shelves. Our cover story tells the inside story of the making of The White Album and Beggars Banquet, while taking a look inside the new Deluxe Editions of both albums – you’ve never heard The White Album like this before! And our special collector’s edition covers enable you to choose either a Beatles or Stones edition – or buy both! Elsewhere this issue, we meet two of the most outspoken characters in the current musical landscape – Richard Ashcroft and Baxter Dury – to hear about their extraordinary new albums, and Heavenly Records founder Jeff Barrett talks us through his remarkable life in music, selecting the records that have soundtracked his career. Tim Burgess sits down for a chat about his O Genesis record label, The Trip visits Liverpool, our Classic Album is A Tribe Called Quest’s 1993 hip-hop masterpiece Midnight Marauders and we round up 40 Essential Laurel Canyon records that should be residing in your collection. If all that’s not enough, we bring you the most extensive range of new album, reissue and hardware reviews anywhere on the newsstand.
