The Prodigy Quotes:
I went through eight years of classical piano lessons without being able to read notes. I only have to hear a melody to be able to play it. It used to freak my piano teacher out when he finally noticed that notes don’t make any sense to me and that I played by ear.
-Liam Howlett

I simply recognized that the band must go on in the development. I needed to go back to the music, to the roots and move forward with the music itself. The British dance scene has become anemic, washed out and simply beat orientated.
-Liam Howlett

I’m not sure, in my book punk is a life-style, a way of thinking. Our outlook is: Here we are, love us or hate us. If that’s punk then we’re punks.
-Liam Howlett

I wrote half the record in 2002, which basically concluded with us releasing "Baby's Got A Temper," the last single. I think after the disappointment of that record for myself with the lack of energy and the way the record came out, I would say that was probably the low point of The Prodigy.
-Liam Howlett

Well basically what happened is, I found out that Michael Jackson didn't actually write Thriller. It was written by Rod Temperton who luckily lives in London. I sent him the track and then I had a meeting with him in his penthouse. He'd went out that morning and bought The Fat Of The Land, my last album, and we had the most bizarre conversation. He said that the music was quite aggressive and "Smack My Bitch Up" sounds X-rated. I explained the idea was the nostalgia thing of taking the record, tearing the ass out of it and spitting it out as something else. He said to me that since you write melodies, why don't you recreate it. I thought well that's not really it, that's getting round the situation and the point really is the nostalgic trip of using the original piece of music and then tearing it up and just kind of spitting it out as something else.
-Liam Howlett

The way that I've wrote this record, it was always in the back of my mind that we should be able to play these records live. We're not going to play every track live, but we'll take like five or six of these tracks and we've already been into the studio and sussed-out which tracks we're going to play.
-Liam Howlett
