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.

JJ72 Reschedule Tour Dates
22 May 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

JJ72 JJ72 have been forced to reschedule some live dates because of an injury to Fergal Matthews' (drums) hand.

The three dates, at Nottingham Rock City (28 May) and London Shepherds Bush Empire (29 and 30 May) have been postponed to allow the injury to heal. They will now take place in June. An extra date has also been added at Portsmouth Pyramid Centre on 21 June 2001.

Fergal Matthews was injured yesterday (21 May). He broke a small bone in his left hand when he was knocked off his bike just outside Dublin.

Tickets for the original 29 May show will now be valid for 18 June and those for 30 May will be valid for 19 June. So the new dates are...

  • 17 June - NOTTINGHAM Rock City
  • 18 June - LONDON Shepherds Bush Empire
  • 19 June - LONDON Shepherds Bush Empire
  • 21 June - PORTSMOUTH Pyramid Centre

This rescheduling will not affect JJ72's headlining slot at T In The Park on 8 July, an appearance at V2001, a show with U2 at Slane Castle and appearances at other European festivals including Roskilde and Pinkpop. They will also be touring Japan for the second time and making their first appearance in the US.

JJ72 would like to apologise to fans for the postponement of these dates.
