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.

Pet Shop Boys To Release Live Video/DVD
10 October 2001 | 18:45:06 GMT/UTC

The Pet Shop Boys will be releasing a live video and DVD, filmed during their 'Nightlife' tour, in NovemberPet Shop Boys have announced details of a new live video and DVD. Montage will be released on 12 November.

Montage features live footage presented simultaneously over layers of backdrop projections and videos. It was filmed on their 1999/2000 Nightlife tour.

The main concert footage was filmed over two nights in Germany; this was then augmented with material collected from many different sources, including news footage and filmed footage from shows on the American leg of the tour. The film also utilises the original projections of the show, plus parts of Pet Shop Boys' videos and other films, including a film of a casting session for a video.

Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are currently in the studio working on their new studio album for release in Spring 2002.
