August 6 [7:55 EDT] -- Is Prodigy's reign over already?
Seemingly before it's even maximized its star potential, Prodigy braintrust and keyboardist Liam Howlett has reportedly told London's "Independent" that the band's hit album, "Fat Of The Land," will be its last.
Howlett, who recently turned down an offer to produce Madonna's next album, told the "Independent," "There isn't another Prodigy album. I went through so much pressure. I'm not going to do that again."
Prodigy's spokesperson reportedly told the "Independent" that Howlett is anxious about overexposure. Since the band currently graces the covers of both "Rolling Stone" and "Spin," Howlett and the Prodigy may be nearing that point of cultural saturation.
While there was no word from Prodigy's U.S. camp at press time, the band will continue exposing itself at Lollapalooza, playing the Desert Sky Ampitheatre in Phoenix this Wednesday, and in Denver August 10.
Prodigy will visit the MTV Arena
(keyword MTVArena for AOL users) this Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern time, where the band might answer fans' questions about its future. MTV Online Live has details.
