03/10/07 JIM RELEASES AN ALBUM
Jim Davies, ex-Prodigy guitarist, has released an album with his own new band, Victory Pill, which also features Kieron Pepper, who we all know of course from his many years drumming for the Prodigy.
It's a lot of heavy guitars and industrial beats, so if you like Pitchshifter you will love this. It's out now in the UK in HMV, Virgin and online on play, itunes, amazon and the likes. In the US you can get it from 23rd October.
Find out more on www.myspace.com/victorypill
As a keen reader of the nekosite forum you will know most of this, but here the latest on the prodigy (yes, it has been a while):
Prodigy have updated their myspace presence and looks like Liam had
a go at starting his own blog as well (if you can call it that after
one post). Supposedly the album is in the "mid to last stages of
recording". Heard all that before? Hmmmmmmmm. (I can't wait though!)
Noel Gallagher has played a previously unreleased demo of the track that had been trigger and later became Shoot Down on AONO, with rather raw vocals by Liam Gallagher. And we like it very much! Taken from Radio 1 [Listen] [discuss]
There's no more tour dates currently for The Prodigy this year, but I'll keep you posted as this changes.
18/06/07 MORE SHOWS
Prodigy have announced two further shows this summer, 12th July at Exit Festival in Serbia and 10th August Lokersee in Belgium. More details in the live section.

The story on Prodigy's new label has now been reported on other music news sites as well, check below:
17/01/07 PRODIGY HAVE GOT A NEW LABEL
First of all, happy new year! Yes, it's been a bit quiet in neko quarters lately, but we're all waiting for that new material...
Big news though - Prodigy have just announced that they are no longer with XL Recordings, and are instead back with their own Ragged Flag label, under the umbrella of UK Independent Cooking Vinyl.
Cooking Vinyl have released the following press release:
The Prodigy Enter long-term worldwide deal with new label
THE PRODIGY are back with their own new label, and this time theyre doing it their way. Always fiercely independent, the band have decided to set up their new label Ragged Flag, which will be the platform for their next album release and will subsequently act as an outlet for new talent that they find.
Backed by UK Independent label Cooking Vinyl, the deal will
allow the band to continue to enjoy total creative control over all
aspects of their music and how it is presented.
The Prodigy are one of the most relevant bands to todays world, said Cooking Vinyls Managing Director Martin Goldschmidt. It is a real honour to be entrusted with handling affairs for Ragged Flag. This is a fantastic start to 2007, and it is the start of a new era for Cooking Vinyl.
Says Cooking Vinyls Product Director Rob Collins, We cant wait to start getting music out there and show everybody just how great this band is.
The Prodigy are currently in the studio working on the follow up to the number 1 albums The Fat Of The Land, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned and Their Law.
"FIRST WARNING" RELEASED ON SMOKING ACES O.S.T.
When nekosite interviewed Liam Howlett last summer [HERE], he mentioned for the first time that the track known as 'Warning' would be included in a soundtrack.
And indeed, "FIRST WARNING", as it is now called, has just been released on the sound track to the Smokin Aces movie. It sounds dark, fast and sinister. Unlike the live show version it is an instrumental only.
20/10/06 NEXT SHOWS - US SHOWS
hitting the Electronic Beats festivals in Bratislava and Prague next
weekend, Prodigy will now also play two more shows in California in
the US in a month time over Thanksgiving weekend:
If you're in the UK and thinking about a weekend in the California sun for when Prodigy are playing, make sure you check the Virgin Atlantic sale, but you must book by this Sunday!

PRODIGY LIVE UPDATE
Prodigy have played a couple of festival dates this weekend and I was able to catch them at Gampel Festival in Switzerland and Frequency in Austria. While there weren't any big surprises, the band were good as ever and continued to impress. The last big gig this summer will be on Saturday at Creamfields Festival UK. so make sure to attend if you are able to at all. The band are then also set to play some shows in Russia and Ukraine in September. More in the live section [HERE].
If you have heard about an alleged gig by the band in Bilbao this summer please review the following statement the band have just released in relation to this:
"It has been brought to our
attention that some local press in Spain have reported Prodigy as
confirmed to play in Bilbao this month (August) as part of a series
of Summer Festival shows staged by the City Hall in Bilbao.
12/06/06 ISLE OF WIGHT AND DOWNLOAD
The Prodigy played two major festivals in the UK this weekend, Isle of Wight on Friday and Download Festival on Sunday. I went to both and while the sets were a bit shorter than usual, every single minute of them was truly great. Crowd reaction was amazing at both shows, which is impressive in particular as Download is more a metal fest. And, they played a new track too. Well, sort of. It was 'Heatwave', already played once at one of the Brixton shows last December. To my mind it sounded quite different to the track back then, but who remembers last December?! Actually it sounded better, that cheesy sample has gone (disclaimer, maybe imagined this under the smirnoff influence) and there are vocals by both Maxim and Keith and I think it's a bit of a grower.
Set list - Isle of Wight (9th June 06) [discuss]
Set list - Download Festival (11th June 06) [discuss]
Now that the metal fest is over, head out to their next show in Santander where they will play after Pet Shop Boys! Rock n' Roll!
19/03/06 PRODIGY IN SAN JUAN (PUERTO RICO) LAST NIGHT

Ooh, well, I guess it's definitely time for an update, even just a quick one. Happy new year everyone!
Considering the amount of shows I've attended in the time etween mid November and mid December (17 in UK/Ireland plus 3 in Italy!) this site would have definitely deserved more attention, but it's just been too busy. I've had an amazing time though and the gigs really were the best ever, especially the five nights in Brixton. I've still got bits and pieces written down from the tour, including a little diary, which will be posted over the next couple of days, so watch this space!
Else it's currently a bit quieter again around The Prodigy, but not for long either. There's a big Japan tour in February and then some festivals announced over the rest of the year already and I'm sure there's more to come. Details are now in the live section. [HERE]. Also don't forget Liam's Back To Mine compilation album is due out in February too, featuring the exclusive 'Wake The Fuck Up' by Prodigy.

some of u might have seen a hotride video 'floating around' on the net.this video was rejected coz i thought the song deserved a more intelligent video and not one that was shocking 4 the sake of it.we allready made the best ever video like that with smbu .nothin wrong with violence as long as there is a point. actually it didnt do anything 4 the song so i would rather not have a video at all.
see up in birmingham

New Single - Hotride
The tracklist is as follows:
You may remember the track 'who u foolin' being mentioned in the interview I did with Liam back in December while he was writing AONO [HERE]. As you may notice, the single has 4 tracks and is therefore not actually eligible for the UK charts. A video was done a while ago but the band wasn't happy with it, so it was binned and a new one will be released later!
24/10/04: Prodigy have another, still unnnamed, new track!
I did a bit of secret investigation in this and apparently Liam only wrote it on Friday afternoon in his hotelroom, then tested it at the soundcheck and decided to play it at the gig! The version on Friday was then very basic with Maxim improvising some vocals - "it's a new religion". By the next day, in Stockholm, Liam had already changed the arrangements and added a vocal sample on ("I cant frequent these frequencies" - something like that) and Maxim vocals. It's a very hard track, if you're into Prodigy for the hard beats, you will like it. Doesn't necessarily sounds like AONO but definitely very Prodigy [discuss]. I might have little report about the shows later on.
Keith & Leeroy live!

14/8/04: Tickets for the UK shows went on sale this morning and as some of you surely have witnessed, many of the major ticket websites ended up struggling and some fans were left empty handed with the Brixton Saturday show selling out within about 15 minutes, the Friday one shortly after.

It also says Liam has recorded a couple of tracks with Maxim (one of them being 'More Girls'). There are around 7 tracks left over from the AONO sessions."
You can now download or watch the four different versions of the BMW ad featuring Prodigy's track 'You'll be under my wheels' online! Just access the BMW Series 1 website [HERE] then go to 'Multimedia' and click on 'TV Ads'.
Also out today is an interview with Liam Howlett in today's 'Independent on Sunday'.
07/8/04: The Remix studio report by Martin James is now online: http://remixmag.com/ar/remix_behind_curtain/index.htm
This doesn't mean the tracks will be changed completeley, 'Spitfire', for example, will feature Maxim on vocals and I will add a different beat to it, so it sounds fresh. The tracks will be develoiping and thats going to be very exciting! With 'Fat of The Land' we got bored quite soon, because we had heard the tracks already for a year in the recordings and then again played the same tracks live every evening for 2 years.
There are some tracks on the album [The Fat of the Land] that we still want to play, but if we ever play 'Firestarter' again then only as a remix. We will definitely not play the straight version anymore, as Keith doesn't want to be the Firestarter anymore anyways."
Liam also mentions how he worked with Juliette Lewis and that the first track they recorded was a track called "Good Morning", which might appear in a film next year! [discuss]
05/8/04: Lots of news! "Girls" video is out and XL have got it online for you to watch: www.xlrecordings.com/broadcast/~girls/

27/7/04: Liam was interviewed on Zane Lowe's show on Radio 1 tonight. Really good interview, really honest and with a lot of info. Radio 1 also run a competition to win signed Prodigy artwork. You can listen to the excellent interview and view fotos here: www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/alt/zanelowe/prodigy.shtml [discuss]
25/7/04: Get an exclusive audio preview of what Keith Flint's new project Clever Brains Fryin' sounds like. The band are to play the Global Gathering festival on Saturday and you can get their track "Oozy" on nekosite [HERE].
With an American release of the album in the pipeline, promotion attempts including "eTeams" and "Streetteams" are inevitable. There's a new one on Totalassault, but fortunately the great biography (written by Martin James) makes up for the patronising nature of these "Teams". Read [HERE]
XFM have published an article with a couple of quotes from Keith Flint with regards to tour plans. He confirms that the band are planning to start touring again from October, as reported here earlier. [HERE]
02/7/04: Q Magazine have got a track-by-track list of each track on the new Prodigy album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned with comments by Liam Howlett himself. I've got it for you - [HERE]
29/6/04: Liam was talking live on Zane Lowe's show on Radio 1 tonight! 'Keety' reports on the forum:
In other news, the download mentioned below sounded good in theory, but in practise didn't quite convince me yet. After being advertised for a 6pm release the track was in true Prodigy style finally available at about 7.20pm. The site was nicely done, but the 'remix' functions not ALL that impressive really. Those who were impressed enough to buy (not to forget the uniquely coloured covers) then had to face dissapointment with a 'connection failed' error that appears to almost everyone who attempted to purchase the track within the first 2h of going live. Ouch.
24/6/04: The Prodigy are to release the track 'Memphis Bells'
as a digital download
available in a strictly limited edition of 5,000. Each of the 5,000 downloads will be a unique variation of the track, accompanied with a unique variation of the artwork.
It will be available
on June 28th at 18.00hrs GMT from www.alwaysoutnumbered.com.
16/6/04: Prodigy confirm the album release date for 23rd August 2004 in the UK and rest of the world (USA: 14th September 2004). The double A-sided single GIRLS / MEMPHIS BELLS will be released on 30th August 2004.
"Girls" already receives radio play on various stations in Europe, so you should be able to hear it if you look for it! But there's even more chance to hear new material, the album track "You'll be under my wheels" will appear on an advert for BMW in July. The track is rumoured to contain some part of long-time favourite live track "Rock n' Roll"! And talking about live, t he band are currently planning to start touring again from October 2004. For more new updates check the AONO section ... [HERE].
12/6/04: AONO section updated, including tracklist of the album [HERE].
Also, NME have a piece about a track called Shoot Down featuring Liam and Noel Gallagher for the new album [HERE].
thanks to theprodigy.nl, fishworx and everyone
10/5/04: Updated the AONO section and will keep it updated, so keep an eye on it! [HERE]
30/4/04: The Prodigy album is finished! Read the official statement from Liam [HERE]
19/4/04: Maxim is to release a new solo single called 'Survivor' on a 10" limited edition of 500 on 1st June 2004. It will be released on Supahero Media Record label, a new label set up by Maxim himself. An album by Maxim is planned for later this year.
'Survivor' is a very dark track, very much sounds like Maxim and reminds me of the feel of his 'My Web' ep, but includes some rockier samples as well. The album is supposed to be much more hip hop orientated than the single.
18/4/04: Gene Simmons of Kiss is to release a solo album called 'Asshole' soon, and the first single from the album is a cover version of Prodigy's "Firestarter". The track also features Dave Navarro on guitar. More about this on www.genesimmons.com.
8/1/04: Interview with Liam Howlett!
I've had the great pleasure to interview Liam Howlett himself about the new Prodigy album and things are all good. At the moment it is scheduled for a June-July 2004 release, but you can already read what Liam has to say about it on nekosite now! [HERE]
