With the release of new album The Day Is My Enemy this week (30 March), The Prodigy speak to Q for a 10-page, special feature in our new issue – Q346 out now.
Yet while we’re celebrating the band, its leader Liam Howlett tells Dorian Lynsky his home is a Prodigy-free zone.
“I don’t have anything Prodigy in the house,” he promises. “No Rod Stewart awards hanging about, no Bon Jovi walls of discs. I hate all that shit.”
However there is one element of the band that gets through, their music, with Howlett explaining he shuns a social life in favour of writing songs, explaining creating the band’s hardcore, high-energy sonic riots are the most fun he can have.
“It’s just something in me. This is the only type of music I can write,” he explains. “It’s just what has to happen. I’m not a tourist. I don’t fucking go out. I don’t want to see shit. I just love writing music.”
Get the new issue – in print or on digital – for the full interview with the whole of the band, plus a look back at the career in a special gallery.
