Leeroy Thornhill - Wildfire: My Ten Years Getting High In The Prodigy [Book]

This is a pre-order item and is expected 12th September 2024. 

Lee Brackstone, Publisher at White Rabbit, has acquired World rights in all languages to Wildfire: My Ten Years Getting High in the Prodigy, by Leeroy Thornhill, from Deano Hamilton at Jonrah Management.

Leeroy Thornhill is an English DJ and music producer most famous for his time as a member of the popular electronic music act The Prodigy from 1990 – 2000.

Wildfire tells the story of the first decade of The Prodigy from the perspective of original member Leeroy Thornhill, fully illustrated with entirely unseen photography from the earliest raves, to Japan and the United States in the late ‘90s, by which point the band were one of the biggest on the planet.

Rave pioneers whose sound also encompassed hip hop, punk and rock, The Prodigy arguably had as much influence on contemporary pop culture as the Sex Pistols and these extraordinary images from Leeroy’s personal archives capture the wild energy, ecstasy and abandon from the moment they dropped their first hit ‘Charly’ through the three albums which became the ubiquitous soundtrack to the decade: Experience, Music for the Jilted Generation and Fat of the Land. 

Beautifully designed in five colours with archival ephemera, and contextualised by Leeroy himself with candid and often hilarious stories describing the band’s wild adventures and eccentric encounters as their fame and popularity spread ‘like wildfire’, this is the ultimate visual journey into the world of the original ‘electronic punks’.

Author Leeroy Thornhill said: ‘Wildfire shares personal images and memories from the first 10 years of the rise of The Prodigy. An unparalleled energy that rapidly spread across the globe intoxicating crowds with its unique sound and live show. Time waits for no man, and with a blink of an eye 30 plus years have passed. My time with the band still feels like only yesterday, A musical journey I am proud to have been part of, the highs are imprinted in my soul. Live life, believe, know your ledge, make it happen.’

Publisher Lee Brackstone said: ‘From the earliest, extraordinary rave days in Braintree, Essex, to the United States, Japan and world domination at the end of the ‘90s, Wildfire is a treasure trove of entirely unseen and behind the scenes photography of the band that defined the fin-de-siecle in so many ways, The Prodigy. Contextualised and accompanied by Leeroy Thornhill’s personal story of the decade he spent in the band when they were at their untouchable peak, Wildfire is essential for ‘Everybody in the Place’ but especially all and any Prodigy fans.’

Wildfire will be published by White Rabbit on 12th September 2024 in hardback and ebook, with an exclusive limited edition.
