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.

5 November 2001 | 16:37:29 GMT/UTC

Stephen MalkmusStephen Malkmus releases a new single, Jo Jo's Jacket, on 26 November. Music Goes On has got the full video for your delectation.

The video, already playlisted at MTV, features Stephen Malkmus appearing as a bald, show-stopping Yul Brynner in a sequence which includes a parody of the seminal sci-fi movie Westworld. It also features a band of cat musicians and a guest appearance by the Jicks — another side-project of Stephen's.

The video was created by Shynola, the people behind the video for Radiohead's Pyramid Song.
