Prodigy’s LIAM HOWLETT has dismissed one of his old singles as "a fucking load of shit".


The group released ’Baby’s Got A Temper’ in 2002, as a stop-gap single while Howlett worked on new LP 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned'.


The song, which charted at Number Five in the UK, is not included on the album. In an exclusive interview published in this week’s NME, Howlett explained why.


He said: "It was a fucking load of shit. I didn’t think it was shit at the time and I wanted to put something out to show people we were still around. I pulled on Keith (Flint) too much on that. Keith’s lyrics are very introverted and that’s not we’re about. The Prodigy are about fist-in-the-air shit, real simple. But it was important because it showed me exactly where I shouldn’t go."


As exclusively revealed on NME.COM, Howlett and his cohorts will play a rare UK and Irish tour in December.


The shows will take place in large 'clubs', such as the London Carling Brixton Academy and Manchester Apollo.


The gigs will be in support of the long-awaited new album 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned’, which is released on August 23.


'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned' features collaborations with Liam and Noel Gallagher, who appear on 'Shootdown', actress Juliette Lewis, who provides vocals on 'Hotride', Kool Keith, Princess Superstar, and Twista.


The tour dates are: Birmingham Academy (December 2)

London Carling Brixton Academy (3-4)

Manchester Carling Apollo (6)

Glasgow Academy (8)

Belfast Ulster Hall (10)

Dublin Olympia Theatre (11)


The group’s last UK shows were in 2002 at the Reading and Leeds festivals, but they haven’t properly toured the UK since 1997.
