In today's OC Weekly I catch up with original nu (old?) rave band Prodigy, which returned to the top of the U.K. pop chart with its latest long-player Invaders Must Die this spring. I note that its punk-meets-dance aesthetic is back in a big way with the nu electro kids.
"You get Justice and other acts, and they’re bringing a harder edge and a bit more of a cutting-edge style," MC Maxim Reality told me. "A lot of people tell us, ‘You’ve influenced these bands,’ and that’s a cool thing."
The band performs Tuesday in Anaheim, California and Wednesday in Los Angeles.
