Speakers Corner: The LF Forum > Live music experience

Hi guys, just listened to it on my way into work and enjoyed it immensely. Denis when Gavin mentioned Aretha Franklin I just knew you were going to mention Jocelyn Brown. Totally agree with you with how the place went off after the debacle of 2 Limited. One of my best live experience too!

Also wanted to add that seeing the Prodigy live at Pink Pop when they were at the height of the 'Firestarter' era was amazing, I remember them in their in their original incarnation as rave DJs and to see the difference was truly astounding. I remember they had played a few of their earlier tracks and had next to me in the crowd this giant German rocker who was bellowing out that he wanted the Firestarter.

When they played it I don't think I've ever seen such a reaction from a crowd and this German guy just launched himself up onto the crowd and off into the distance!

Hi Pete

Glad you enjoyed the podcast. Seems like everyone whose ever seen the prodigy live (for free or otherwise) has some kind of story to tell.

makes sense I guess!

Cheers

I haven't seen Prodigy live :( I randomly saw The Roots playing live in Dublin- blagged my way in as a groupie of one of the warm up acts, Hughie from the Fun Lovin Criminals owned the club- good combo of good live performance and doing something I really shouldn't have been :)

The Roots are an amazing live act - definitely a group everyone should see at some point.
