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.

Oasis' First Gig Without Noel
31 May 2000 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Oasis played their first gig without Noel Gallagher last night at the Filaforum Stadium in Milan. Many of the Oasis fans had camped outside the stadium overnight. The venue wasn't full but by the time Johnny Marr's new band The Healers had finished their support slot, the anticipation in the building was incredible.

When voices from the crowd cried for the return of Noel, Liam told them: "Oasis are a fucking band. Not just one person. If you're gonna to shout something, shout Oasis!"

Matt Deighton, Noel's replacement played bass while Gem Archer took Noel's lead parts. The tour continues tonight in Zurich, Switzerland.

Here's the full track listing for the Milan show: Fuckin' In The Bushes / Go Let It Out / Who Feels Love? / Supersonic / Shakermaker / Acquiesce / Gas Panic / Roll With It / Stand By Me / Wonderwall / Cigarettes And Alcohol / Live Forever / Champagne Supernova / Rock 'n' Roll Star.
