Leeroy Quits Prodigy

LEEROY has quit THE PRODIGY. In an interview with the BBC, Leeroy confirmed his departure to embark on a solo career. This is only mildly astounding, given the fact that Leeroy simply DANCED for the Prodigy (hey, at least Bez could shake a mean pair of maracas!) The rest of the band, meanwhile, are working on their follow-up to "Fat of the Land" and will reportedly take the festival season off.

Phoenix Canceled

A caution for those planning UK trips this summer: This year's Phoenix Festival has been cancelled, reportedly due to low advance ticket sales. What with the reformation of New Order being the main draw, we're all dumbfounded. BUT, both New Order and the Prodigy have been rescheduled to headline this year's Reading.
