THE Prodigy have delighted fans by remixing every piece of pop culture ephemera from the 1970s.Richard Nixon and Ted Heath starred in ‘Herbie Rides Again’
The bands new album includes a punk-influenced rave remix of everything ever recorded between the first of January 1970 and the last day of 1979.
Frontman Keith Flint said: Everyone loved Charly, so the logical creative progression was a remix of the road safety awareness films starring Tufty the Squirrel.
“After that it just felt natural to put a jungle-influenced bassline on the 1978 Cinzano adverts featuring Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter.
“We then realised there was still a wealth of untapped material from the 1970s, resulting in a dance remix of the Jackanory theme and a hard house version of the music from The Onedin Line.
“Of course its easy to rest on your laurels, so we took a more soulful, almost R&B approach to For Mash Get Smash, featuring the Smash robots.”
Music critics have applauded the new album, with the NME singling out the drum-and-bass version of the speeches of Ted Heath about the OPEC oil crisis.
Office worker Tom Logan said: My girlfriend and I dropped a couple of white doves and it was like 1995, or possibly 1975, all over again.
