1Enjoys a lot of distortion in the songs he works on. Rarely are the tracks clean, they have a dirty, raw-edge that his fans enjoy. He has a strong hold on the use of distortion. An example is "The Fat of the Land".
#Quote
1[on the meaning of the song "Breathe"] When we did the song, it was about confrontation between Maxim and Keith. There was no deep meaning. It was like, you want to taste me, come over here and taste me. And then Maxim was like, breathe me, breathe me... It was just more of a confrontational thing between them two. When they do it on stage, that comes across really obviously. I'm not gonna sit here and try and think of some deep meaning because it just hasn't got one. Firestarter has but Breathe hasn't. It's basically like a full-on, almost punk dance track. It's kind of got the energy of our other tracks but it's also got the edge of Firestarter in a way. When you see it live, it's really confrontational between them two. We just wanted to get that on record and it just captured that live part of the show, you know?
2[on NME magazine] "These questions are reliant on my memory and unfortunately that part of my brain doesn't exist. We like the NME 'cos they've always been supportive, but if they diss us we'll set fire to them."
3When you first break into the music scene, everyone is so naive. I was only nineteen when I started happening with 'Charly' and I was so into the rave scene - apart from hip hop, I was blind to everything else.
4We'd been away for a year and we needed to come back with a big impact, but just another dance track would not have broken any new ground. As far as I am concerned 'Firestarter' set a whole new level for English music, that's my honest opinion. When people heard that track it was a major turning point. It was so experimental, crossing the barriers between punk and dance. Keith re-invented himself and it was a great introduction to him. It was convincing but not just because it was No.1. The track sounds like it means business, the way Keith delivers the vocals, the music has such attitude. It was a landmark.
5It's important not to get too locked into one way of thinking, some kind of routine or format. That's what happened to me with the first album, "Experience". I got locked into certain sound within that rave scene, specific types of songs, and as a result it is quite a one dimensional record. I don't want to do that again.
6I go in and out of the studio in sporadic periods, I don't go in there for hours on end. I'm looking for that initial vibe, be it from a beat, a sound, a loop, whatever. Nothing is planned, nothing is deliberate.
7As far as the rock 'n' roll format in dance music goes, I don't think it's been done before with such full-on attitude. The idea behind that was because no-one else hade done it. Everything was right at the time for us to do that.
8America is exciting to us because they haven't got all the baggage that the UK has. My main concern is the preoccupation with scenes, and the interest in the 'electronic music scene' - what the hell's that? We'll go over there and rock it on our own, we don't need to rely on a scene to survive. We have far more flexibility than other electronic bands as well - some dance bands are too purist and won't go on rock bills, but as far as we're concerned that's too myopic and limiting. We've got no doubts that when things kick off, we can deliver the performance and the music and the goods, that's our side of the bargain.
9I was 15. I basically just did it for myself in my bedroom and I spent like a year just learning the techniques, going to mixing competitions watching people, listening to stuff and just picking it up. And then I think I entered a couple of mixing competitions. I entered a mixing competition on a London radio station and entered a mix under one name and two weeks later I thought no, it has these bad points, I'm gonna do another one. So I entered another mix under another name and I came first and third with both those mixes. It just took off from there. But I never thought Yeah, I want to be in this big band!
10I'm fascinated with aggressive music on a street level. We draw from all corners of rock 'n' roll history, hip hop, dance, punk, whatever, and spit it out as the Prodigy sound. The live element allows us to take it one step further, to really connect with the crowd and bring out a darker side to the band. It will always remain important to me to create something raw and unpolished.

4Preparing for a big international tour in 2006 as well as recording a 5th studio album. [December 2005]
5Stepfather of Rachel Appleton.
6Lives in Dunmow, Essex, United Kingdom.
7Has a son, Ace, with Natalie Appleton born in 2004.
8Brother-in-law of Nicole Appleton, Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher.
9His beats are not simply beats, but akin to "a brick exploding in your face", if you will. Multi-layered, thick, and exploding in powerful energy.
10He is very aware of his audience when creating the music, constantly trying to craft his songs for the highest effect for his listeners, whether it be making them feel happy, sad, or wanting to get up and scream from the building energy.
11He has been known to use soundclips from various films, TV shows, other songs, etc. to further the entertainment-value and intensity of his songs.
12His favorite albums of the 90s are "Mezzanine" by Massive Attack for chilling out ("I just love the feel of it - I don't even think it's dark."), and "Nevermind" by Nirvana for rock.
13What success means to him: the success of an album for him is when he shuts the studio door. He doesn't care that much about album sales - actually he wants to sell albums, but he doesn't want his records to be bought by everyone, like Oasis do.
14He is an avid fan of horror films. Many of his tracks contain samples from films such as Poltergeist III (1988) (Crazy Man) and The Shining (1980) (The Heat The Energy). He has a strange collection of horror films in his house, a big sword that hangs from a ceiling, and even a 3' (90 cm.) green rat standing up in his sitting room!
15When he's snowboarding he likes to perfect on stunts.
16His favorite record label is Skint (the home of Fatboy Slim).
17He used to study graphic design at school, and his workplaces (before forming the Prodigy) included: a London magazine called Metropolitan and a T-shirt printing factory. Also, he used to work at a construction site, just to save enough money for his first turntable.
18He is a visual type that is, most of the tracks he writes are inspired by images and atmospheres, which he'd like the listener to experience.
19He is a Playstation fan, he admitted to playing Tomb Raider (that's why Fat of the Land was delayed by so long).
20He loves making mixes - at the age of 14, he mixed songs recorded from the radio using the pause button on his cassette player. ("Mixing tunes together was just what I always wanted to do." - Liam)
21His very first record was Ska's Greatest Hits, containing tracks from The Selector and The Specials.
22He has a cat named Charly...after the group's song "Charly."
23He loves Japanese culture , including bonsai trees and the philosophy behind them.
24Is in the band The Prodigy.
