The Prodigy brought music to the masses.
Not music they knew…or had even heard before.
They brought the underground overground.
Their vicious, blistering, rage fuelled, sonic assault of punk, drum and bass, dance, rap and goodness knows what else forced kids like me who had previously dismissed dance music as being “fake” and lacking in soul to accept that we had called it all wrong.
A huge part of that was Keith Flint.
His death today has brought a tear to my eye…more than one.
He was a rare beast.
He will be missed.
