Listen: Invaders Must Die / The ProdigyProdigyInvaders.mp3

I heard this a few months back on Radio 1. Don’t ever dismiss a seminal act, they all go through if-y patches. So is the case with The Prodigy. For whatever reasons, all of their original label partners (XL, Elektra, Maverick) decided to throw them on the scrapheap. Well from the outside looking in that’s what seemed to happen at least.

Suddenly, the band was signing to Cooking Vinyl, an unlikey fit. Out comes the new album, from which
‘Invaders Must Die’ is from – and bang – straight to #1 in The UK. And man did this jump out of the radio and deserve such a result.
