The Prodigy hate Pendulum comparisons

Liam Howlett - frontman of The Prodigy - is annoyed his band keep being compared to fellow electronic group Pendulum.
Great deals on musical instruments

The Prodigy's Liam Howlett doesn't like his band being compared to Pendulum.

The mastermind of the electronic dance group - who will be supported by the 'Propane Nightmares' hitmakers at their upcoming gig at Milton Keynes Bowl in South-East England on July 24 - insists they are "fed off" that people keep making comparisons between the two acts.

He told NME magazine: "People go on about Pendulum being similar to us but they really aren't. I think when you see us alongside each other it's fing obvious that we're totally different.

"And we're as f***ed off with people going on about that as they are probably."

Liam - who featured on the track 'Immunize' on Pendulum's album 'Immersion' - explained while The Prodigy have managed to keep hold of their "rave roots", Pendulum have left their origins behind.

He said: "It seems they've broken away from their drum 'n' bass roots, but are still clinging onto it a bit. Whereas we really kept hold of our roots in rave for quite a while, and something new has come out of it.

"We managed to keep most of our fans and just build."
