PS. @neorev,do you know if a recording of No Souvenirs excists and/or in which track is has evolved? Is it shelved or disgarted? I believe in a recent Russin interview the track is thrown away. It's a post TFOTL, post AONO track if I remember correctly.

Nightboat To Cairo was done in 2002 with Keith on vocals. It was only played live once and even had a live sax player. When they played it live, the breakdown went into Medusa's Path with Maxim delivering a vocal line.

Yes, there are studio versions of No Souvenirs, which was written back in 2000. I know of two versions apparently. Liam's and one was mixed by Massive Attack's guy Mike Stent and amped up the trippier, psychedelic side. It was written for The Beach soundtrack, but pulled at the last minute. It seems it was even meant to be a single as UNKLE and Dan The Automator did remixes. UNKLE leaked their remix years later on their Belfast mix CD. Liam and 3D had discussed the idea of working together on something together. Then, they ended up contributing instrumental music to a porno film called The Uranus Experiment. The Prodigy track is called Titan and is only featured on the porno. Liam is friends with Alex Garland, who wrote The Beach. Alex is actually responsible for the band cartoon drawings in the Experience art. So Liam and 3D decided to work together and No Souvenirs was born. They pulled it from the soundtrack. It was then getting reworked and included on Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. But Liam scrapped a bunch of tracks he had written, including No Souvenirs, and started over. Liam was just never happy with the track. He said it was a track he just couldn't finish. He never used any sounds from No Souvenirs on any other tracks.

3D: "Liam and I had been talking about doing something together for about a year and then we did a track each for a porn film called ‘The Uranus Experiment’. Liam knew Alex Garland who wrote ‘The Beach’ and Liam suggested that he did the music and I wrote some lyrics for a song to go on the film’s soundtrack. The track is called ‘No Souvenirs’ and is slightly Pink Floyd; slightly Beach Boys in places; full-on dark but very musical with some great arrangements. But in the end, we felt it wasn’t appropriate for the soundtrack album. The rest of the album was too dance and pop-orientated so we pulled it. It might end up as a track on the next Prodigy album."
