The Prodigy are an explosive live band, with their range of rave, hardcore and industrial. Famous for their “Smack My Bitch Up” smash, they were at their peak in 1996, when D and I got free tickets to a sell-out gig at Brixton. Unfortunately, the support act and DJ (which may have been Liam Howlett) gave us a headache. So, we left as the Prodigy were coming on stage and went home to listen to some proper Detroit techno. Only time I’ve ever done that.


The Prodigy are an electronic music group formed by Liam Howlett in 1990, in Braintree, Essex, England. They have sold over 16 million records worldwide. Their music consists of various styles ranging from rave, hardcore and industrial in the early 1990s to alternative rock and big beat with punk vocal elements in later times. The current band members include Liam Howlett (composer/keyboards), Keith Flint (dancer/vocalist) and Maxim (MC/vocalist). Leeroy Thornhill (dancer/very occasional live keyboards) was a member of the band from 1990 to 2000, as well was a female dancer/vocalist called Sharky who left the band during their early period. The Prodigy first emerged on the underground rave scene in the early 1990s.
