The new book by Martin James titled PRODIGY has been published on June 28th, 2002 by Sanctuary Publishing. Is a complete rewrite of the first book "Adventures with the Voodoo Crew", from 1997 and twice the length (120.000 words compared to 60.000). Covers everything that happened since the release of the Prodigy's last album The Fat of the Land, Liamís DJ sets, Leeroy Thornhill leaving the band, explained in more detail than any other journalist has ever managed to.
Reading "PRODIGY" you'll discover many little stories and facts you've never heard before. New chapters have been added, existing chapters have been rewritten and contain much more and new information. You will find the description of No Souvenirs, the Mixmag 1992 'Did Charly kill Rave?' story presented from a different point of view, covered the different solo careers, Maxim, Flightcrank and Liam Howlett's DJ sessions.
There is a lot more detail to start with, each chapter has been rewritten, with new quotes added and new illustrative stories. There's more critical perspective and more third-party interviews.
Martin James describes the book as being much more critical, more "adult" and more in depth, especially about Liam Howlett. The book covers also the European and Australian tours and then finishes with a day with Liam at Rollover Studios where he is putting the final touches to the new single, Baby's got a Temper.
