THE PRODIGY Released ‘MUSIC FOR THE JILTED GENERATION’ 25 Years Ago Today…

4 July 2019

This day 25 years ago, on 4 July 1994 techno-punks THE PRODIGY released their game-changing longplayer ‘MUSIC FOR THE JILTED GENERATION‘. An overwhelming cross-over acid house monster. A droning anti-establishment soundtrack for illegal 24 hour-parties. Unfortunately, this birthday is entirely overshadowed by Keith Flint‘s unexpected and premature death on 4th March of this year. I want to turn this day into a celebration of
a unique artist and a one of a kind performer who deeply loved what he did and who was astonishing good at it. Let’s remember Mister Flint with these highlights of THE PRODIGY‘s 25-year old second album, their breakthrough sledgehammer…

‘Music For The Jilted Generation’ by THE PRODIGY
Released: 4 July 1994 – Debut longplayer

BBC review: “It was their chart-topping 1996 single, “Firestarter”, that first took up lighter and aerosol and burnt the name of The Prodigy, and the piercing-covered gurn of Keith Flint, onto the national consciousness. But if you want to mark the point this gang of Essex ravers first learnt to unite the chemical rush of acid house and the anti-authority attitude that had hitherto been the preserve of black-clad anarcho-punks like Crass and their ilk, not loved-up glowstick twirlers, look back a couple of years to their 1994 album ‘Music For The Jilted Generation’.”

TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – Here’s ‘Music For The Jilted Generation’ By THE PRODIGY

Remarkable albums from the past

‘Music For The Jilted Generation’
THE PRODIGY

Released: 4 July 1994
Their second LP

BBC MUSIC wrote: “Recorded against the backdrop of the Criminal Justice Act, the 1994 legislation that effectively criminalised outdoor raving – ‘How can the government stop young people from having a good time?’, reads a note on the inner sleeve – Music… simmers with righteous, adrenalised anger, rave pianos and pounding hardcore breakbeats augmented by gnarly punk guitar, wailing sirens and on ‘Break And Enter’, the sound of shattering glass. At
no point is this merely a band coasting on edgy vibes and bad attitude, though, rather, this
is a record that saw Prodigy mainman Liam Howlett maturing as a producer, increasing his palette of sounds and instruments without diluting The Prodigy’s insolent rush, and simultaneously smash ’n’ grabbing from a diverse range of influences that would be neatly integrated into the band’s design.”
