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.

Fatboy Slim - Song For Shelter / Ya Mama
29 August 2001 | 13:43:09 GMT/UTC

Fatboy SlimNorman Cook's follow-up to Star 69 is this double-A-side. Song For Shelter and Yo Mama.

The first was remixed by the Chemical Brothers, the CD also includes a remix courtesy of 20:20 Vision. Short and sharp vocals are provided by Roland "Star 69" Clark.

Turn the record over and you will hear Ya Mama which opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Grand Theft Audio. This riff carries on all the way through with some beats backing it. Not traditional Fatboy Slim material but good.

But when is he going to come back with records like Rockafeller Skank?
