. One can argue, are right or not apologists Prodigy - one thing is certain: the band gave a good kick dozing rock-n-roll and forced to take themselves too seriously.

From a young age having a pronounced tendency to "ska" (West Indian music similar to reggae) and hip-hop, Liam Haulet to begin with, that found a job as a DJ and tapped in clubs Essex. Keith Flint and Leroy Thornhill in those days were a staple of nightclubs and often met there Hauleta. Once they asked the DJ to record some of his mixes on tape, but when listened to their homes, found that he inserts into the mix and the music of his own composition. And they both liked what they heard, that they immediately offered to work together Hauletu. Following the advice of friends, the trio took part in the Maxima, possessing exceptional communication skills, which later came in very handy at concerts.

In 1990 Haulet appeared in the office of the independent British record company XL Recordings with the demo tape, which contains ten songs, recorded them in my bedroom. He managed to get the first contract for Prodigy, which in itself was a huge success, which he told the rest of the group only when all the papers were signed.

Haulet listens to Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers and other alternative team. The first composition, where Liam tried in his own music to express what it is now interested, was the song, which was called "One Love" and went separate single summer of 1993. Despite changes in the sound recording was accepted by fans "to cheer. The experiment was a success. Haulet still an ongoing process, and work on their second album Prodigy is already in a different direction. "Music for a Jilted Generation" was released in 1994, and stasis "fire" in the first place in the British charts. In America, though, the album managed to climb only to 198 on the Billboard.

Nine singles Prodigy in turn includes a list of the top 15 in Britain, but none has not been raised to the top. Finally, in March 1996 the band released "Firestarter". Being the loudest of all the songs, this single significant is the fact that it is the first role of the singer goes to Flint. He Haulet jointly written text.
