Personalities | The Prodigy | Nineties | Rock

(Dance/vocal group, 1990–present)

After releasing the infectious ‘Charly’, Prodigy mainman Liam Howlett secured acid-house credentials with a series of singles, recruiting dancers Keith Flint and Leeroy Thornhill and singer MC Maxim to distract live audiences from his knob-twiddling. Music For The Jilted Generation (1994) displayed wide-ranging styles fused on to the frenetic beats. The Fat Of The Land (1997) broke the band worldwide via Flint-sung ‘Firestarter’, a UK No. 1. Invaders Must Die was their 2009 offering.
