Did you ever wonder why the Prodigy‘s classic 1997 album ‘The Fat Of The Land‘ had a picture of a crab as it’s cover? Well it was originally going to be a doner kebab on a spit, you know the one that looks like an elephant’s foot. The meat was going to have the album title seared into it. Liam Howlett changed his mind on seeing the picture so XL Records in-house designer Alex Jenkins found the dancing crab photo. He then increased the size of the creature’s left claw to make it seem as if the crab was sticking two fingers up to the world.
I love ‘The Fat Of The Land’ and I also think that the new Prodigy album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ is bloody good too. What do you think?
