I'll check these just as soon as my audio's working again, stupid PC.

Read some of the comments about them over on BK, seems as though some people think they could be legit.

If they're real then I'm surprised they've never surfaced before.  Who exactly is Mark Macdonald?

Proud2 Mat & Dj Fame (Severe not shown) Paris March 1989
Talk about a moody place, hassle from the minute we got there. A great idea, let's go Paris and check the scene, it can't be as moody as Grove.......big mistake Gare du Nord Stalingrad and St Denis not a good place without contacts for us chirpy white boys. We turned up in belt buckles and Troop and very soon Fame & Proud2 were buying Dunlop Green Flash from a bargain shop so as to avoid Taxing from Stalingrads finest. Dj Fame was partner to Dj 4Tune in Cut2Kill and was at an amazing standard compared to a lot of other dj's at this time. His 'Star Wars into Spoonie G' mix from 88 was legendary as was his 'Hijack' mix in the same year. He entered DMC the next year, and we had him down to walk it! I heard he became quite noisy in later years.
As 2 dj's....4Tune & Fame were not to be trifled with on the decks....to this day, their 'Hard Rhymer' track is still one of the tuffest tracks ever...not the remixed version though. Note, check the brand new NAF NAF coats, we brought quite a bit back with us. As well as Krylon!

Man this is just one amazing find and so amazing it's only turned up now online. I talked a little about it on Episode 003 of The Prodigy Fanboy Video Blog the other day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_ICJGTG-2A

And now I've made it all look nice in this News Post mate: http://theprodigyfanboy.com/2013/11/11/liam-howlett-dj-fame-paris/

Liam will end up seeing it on Fanboy, I wonder what memories will go through his mind or what he'll think of it. Not that he would tell us anyway.

I sent an email through... most likely won't get a reply/comment back.... they are now aware of the tracks being posted...

Would love a video of Liam tho talking about this, his thoughts and so on.

Has anyone been able to rip them in high quality? I'd love to burn them on CD...
