Former Prodigy frontman KEITH FLINT has shown off his new band - FLINT - for the first time.

The group, which includes, Flint, guitarist JIM DAVIES and two drummers KIERAN PEPPER and TONY HOWLETT, have begun filming their debut video - which is being directed by Jonas Akerlund, the man behind THE PRODIGY's infamous SMACK MY B**** UP promo.

But while the pierced performer devotes much of his time to Flint, sources close to Prodigy insist he hasn't turned his back on the FAT OF THE LAND band.

According to British music website NME.COM, The Prodigy are likely to release a long overdue new album before the end of 2003.

A source tells the site, "Keith wrote the lyrics for the album during his Prodigy downtime and the band started jamming them at his house in Essex. They went into the studio at the turn of the year and have made a f***- off album!"
