Pre-Prodigy: Liam Howlett started his musical career as a DJ in a group
called Cut To Kill in 1987, but (as far as we know) he worked on only
one of their singles, titled Listen to the Basstone. He left the band
when they signed a contract that excluded him, and, influenced by house
music (later rave) arriving from overseas, became a DJ in Essex. Soon
(in the club The Barn) he met Leeroy Thornhill, the two-meter tall James
Brown-fan dancer, and ”freelance” traveler Keith Flint, who were the
members of the same rave crowd. Then they asked for a tape of Liam’s
DJing and after hearing some of his own tunes, they asked to dance to
his music, if he played live. A friend, Ziggy organized a live
appearance at a venue called Labyrinth in 1990. The dancers (Keith,
Leeroy, and a friend of Keith’s, Sharky) and Liam were ready for the
gig, but Liam also wanted an MC – friends recommended Maxim Reality
(Keith ”Keeti” Palmer), who joined them as an MC to better the live
shows. The first live Prodigy performance was held in front of 250
people. After the first gig, more followed – and the five formed The
Prodigy (yes, originally there were 5 members)

The first singles: Their first release, What Evil Lurks (with four
tracks) sold seven thousand copies (peaking at #31 in the Dance Chart –
note that after this Sharky left the band) and started them on a way of
massive hits over the following years (after that, they had tons of live
performances in various clubs). Their next single was Charly (which Liam
hoped wouldn’t enter the Top 40), ”featuring” a sample from a BBC Public
Information Film (intended for kids), and became a club anthem, and an
incredible hit (going #3 in the UK Single Chart, and #1 in the UK Dance
Chart) – also causing much controversy, with newspapers claiming the
track ”killed rave”. 

The live shows: Being ravers, it was obvious for the Prodigy to have
live shows. In fact, at the beginning, it was the live shows that the
whole Prodigy music was based on – their live shows becoming the most
popular among youth, because of their style and energy. Liam even said
he respected a big rave more than a chart single. 

The following months: After the success of Charly, the they released 3
more singles before the first album: Everybody In The Place (which went
#2, being kept off the top spot by the re-release of Bohemian Rhapsody),
Fire and Out Of Space (which was their first international hit,
conquering the airwaves of many European countries). Liam also made
several remixes (for Dream Frequency and Art Of Noise), and turned down
Take That when they asked him to remix one of their songs. 

The first album: in November 1992, the Prodigy released their first
full-length album: Experience. Its unique style and freshness made it a
hit – but promotion tours (with Paul Oakenfold and Moby) were complete
failures, and the band ended up with huge debts. 

Number one album: This was the time for change: the anonymously released
track, One Love was kind of different, leaving behind most of the
