Words matter. These are the best Keith Flint Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
What I like about Japanese venues is that the front barrier is right up against the stage, so when you’re bending over, they’re right there in front of you. In some European festivals, they’re so paranoid, you need a taxi to go and touch the crowd!
With Liam, what you see is what you get. I love him for it. That’s what it’s about – you’ve got to have the Liam Gallaghers out there, you know what I mean?
I was quite disruptive and out there. Then I found myself in a load of remedial classes being told how to use a ruler. But when they tested my IQ, they found out I was quite intelligent.
We don’t feel like we changed from rave, because we were never rave, to punk, because we’re not punk.
I’m not a singer.
When you have had the high of being on stage, especially in a band like ourselves, I can’t help but search for that buzz.
I know that I’m with the best people I can be, and my arsenal of sounds and songs and tracks is as good as it could possibly be. Don’t be in a band unless you feel that.
We’ve stood by who we are and we didn’t listen to anyone else.
I’m not sure if I’d call myself an extrovert. I think I’m a bit contradictory. I like being endearing and venomous at the same time. I guess it’s one part of myself fighting against the other part, proving that I’m not that nice all the time.
The TT is a very precious thing to the riders. These guys that do the roads are very unique people. On the first hand you’ve got the bravery, the knowledge of the circuit, the guys live this – this is what they are about. I am very aware of that.
I like jokes and one-liners. I enjoy entertaining and making people laugh, being the funny man. But when I’m launched into unfamiliar environments I shut down, and as I relax then my character emerges.
I’m incredibly self-destructive.
We played an old U-Boat factory in East Germany once and that was massive – 35,000 people.
I don’t hear anyone out there that sounds like us. They can try but it’s in the sonics, the whole carcass of the song. The way it attacks you is so well engineered. No one else can do that. They don’t have the ability to make that noise.
I think anyone who’s willing to be brutally honest with who they are and express themselves is always going to get the oddball label, the pyscho label, the twisted label. That’s what happens.
If you like energy, if you like attitude, if you like tough beats with black rhythms with a bit of soul and a bit of realness, come and check out the Prodigy.
Going onstage is like going into battle. You’re ultimately there to win. It’s driven and fuelled by passion and a desire to do it.
If you’re onstage thinking about what you’re going to eat when you get offstage, it’s time to finish.
You know, it’s very easy to have a few beers with people in the music industry and suddenly be friends for life – ‘Let’s work together!’ All of a sudden, you’re trying to form a super group with a few people you’ve met in a club. I’m not into that, myself. Those aren’t your mates.
Trouble is, I’m definitely on the spectrum somewhere – there’s a dysfunctional side.
We like to take picnics and sandwiches, driving through the green lanes. My wife loves the house, the dogs, and the animals we have around us, the deer and the fox that comes and pokes his head through the hedge.
I just do my thing onstage – it’s just what happens. No one, even if they’re into the band, can know it’s as natural and real as anything can be. I don’t think about it.
The point is to be true to yourself – otherwise you may as well give up.
Some of these DJs have screens, 3D blocks, flames, gas and even a trapeze. It’s like looking at a really stupid customised car.
I’m volatile, up-tempo, quick to react and passionate. People often think all that high-energy stuff is just for the stage, but that’s me. I like to express myself. When I was younger I would listen to the Jam in my bedroom and jump around in excitement to the music.
It’s always hard to find groups who can tour with The Prodigy.
When we walk onto that stage I’m not feeling like I’m ruled by any other band.
The band is built on fire and venom, as is the energy that goes into racing – but it is a completely different discipline. They are very similar in a lot of ways but poles apart in others.
That’s just the way the world’s going – everything has to be so instantly commercial that it kills anything that’s a little bit underground instantly.
People ask if I would do the TT myself – the actual romance of doing it is in me but the chances are zero. I can’t belittle the talent and the bravery and the endurance that goes into a race like this. The competitors are some of the bravest men on the planet and it is one of the biggest challenges a racer can take on.
We’ve never adopted Americanisms. We are a very British band from a very British cultural scene. We fly that flag and that is something I enjoy.
I’m proud to say I’ve never listened to that ‘Gangnam Style.’
To be a part of TT history is a massive achievement. It is one of, if not the greatest races on two wheels, if not on four.
Your mates are the people who have been around 10 years or more.
I am quite schizophrenic as a person. I can be sweet as anything and lovely, and then I can just go into a scene that people are quite shocked with.
I’m in a band. I’ll do what I want.
I know I’m in the best band in the world.
America is really happy to be sold something.
People are getting force-fed commercial, generic records that are just safe, safe, safe.
Everything’s so commercialised it shuts down the underground.
