The Incredible Shrinking Techno Supergroup

New Prodigy record to be the last, members already going solo. After the release of the Prodigy's new Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, the group will break up. According to a band spokesperson, Liam Howlett doesn't think the band should last another five years, which is the time it takes for them to put out an album. It may be just as well, as dancer Leeroy Threadgill, who left the band earlier this year, is working with dub eccentric Lee"Scratch" Perry on tracks under his Flightcrank moniker, while Prog MC Maxim Reality has now shortened his name to Maxim and will release his solo album, Hell's Kitchen, this month. Showcasing his own production skills, the album he says, is "closer to Company Flow" than the breakbeat Prodigy sound, and features guests like Skunk Anansie.
