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.

Noel Gallagher Wins Case Against The Mirror
25 May 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Oasis Oasis' Noel Gallagher has won an apology from The Mirror newspaper.

The tabloid accused him of lying to a divorce court claiming that he was dating current girlfriend Sara Macdonald before he split from Meg Mathews (his wife).

The paper alleged Noel had lied about the situation but now agrees that this is incorrect and will publish an apology on Monday (28 May) reading:

"Noel Gallagher, in his divorce papers, makes it clear that the adultery alleged by his former wife, Meg Mathews, took place after their separation. Yet in an article we published on January 19, 2001 we said that Noel had lied to the court in this respect.

Noel's lawyer was concerned because he feared that the Judge may throw the petition out and charge Noel with contempt of court.

Having been shown the divorce papers we can confirm that Noel always made it clear that the adultery took place after he separated from Meg Mathews and we accept that Noel would not and did not lie to the court."
