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.

Mercury Rev - Nite And Fog
22 September 2001 | 17:28:09 GMT/UTC
Release: 1 January 1970 | 0:00:00 (V2)

L-R: monster, wise man, foolThis is the first single to be lifted from Mercury Rev's follow-up to Deserter's Songs: All Is Dream.

An alternative version (on CD2) features a boys choir. The single version however, contains the strings that are heard a lot in the long-player. Lyrics coming from Jonathan Donahue are about gods, vampires, monsters, wise men and fools.

Also, some fantastic drumming adds to the atmosphere surrounding this record courtesy of the band who also produced it.
