I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Manic Street Preachers The Manic Street Preachers have pushed back the release of their next single Ocean Spray. It will now be released on 4 June.

A message on the bands' official web site (www.manics.co.uk) simply says, "Stop Press: The Ocean Spray single, the third to be taken from the Know Your Enemy album, will now be released on the 4th June."

The single will feature new tracks, Groundhog Days and Just A Kid plus a live version of Ocean Spray from their recent show in Havana, Cuba.
