The Prodigy magazine article archive

The largest collection of Prodigy related articles and magazine scans in the web. Although there are already over 200 articles available I still would like to get some more here. Collection contains now only articles in english and finnish language but other languages are always welcome. So if you got some articles in your own language found from your local news paper or magazine, please contribute. Also scans from magazines are always welcome.

Be sure to check also

' Reviews' -section for record and gig reviews.

' Equipment' -section for articles about the Prodigy's live and studio gear.

' Magazine covers' -section for magazine covers with the Prodigy .

Help to find lost scans!

This section is updated regularily and needs your help. If you have any magazine articles or scans please contribute. The aim is to build the ultimate Prodigy article archive for all fans and preserve all great articles. Especially it would be nice to get archived articles from the early days. I would be very grateful if you could find some and send them for me. Please email articles to
