Hi all,

Love or hate the Prodigy band,they have releaased this track.

The vid is titled 'Invaders Must Die' and features shots of Concrete Sound Detectors which were built on the South coast of England just before WW2 to detect German bombers.

Also shots of Sea Forts at the end if the vid that were built to repel invasion. And also act as AAA.

Oleg can be seen on the second Sea
Fort from the right with his wife if you look carefully.

The first shot of the Concrete Sound Detector is at about 1.20.


Best Regards,
MB_Avro.

Good old prodigy.

Nit picking mode on/
Weren't those sound detectors used in the first world war?
/Nit picking mode off.

Or were different designs used on both WWI and II?

Designed for WW2 in the 1930's but the development of Radar by the Brit Boffins made the sound detectors passe.

But they still exist as in the vid.

I liked the Japanese ones better ... they had a real Marvel-Comics/cyberpunk spin to them.

those are the audio projectors that were intended to repel allied bombers with some really loud j-pop, but they did not get their ammunition recorded in time before the war ended.

Hi all,

The Concrete Sound Detectors (Listening for Concrete http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif) should be available in BoB SoW when it's released.

Best Regards,

Just think if the Brits had had some of those during the Battle of Britain. The Luftwaffe would have been ripped to shreds on the first day!

Now i was expecting something more like this:

Would also make a very effective acoustic countermeasure against the concrete sound detectors!

We could do with these in the UK now for Gordon Brown, maybe it would help him to LISTEN!

Are you sure those aren't Orgone energy projectors to shoot bombers down with?

The video is not available any more. Copyright issues, you know. Maybe Prodigy is owned by N-G... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
