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.

Richard Ashcroft will have to postpone his London shows at Brixton Academy tonight (14 December) and tomorrow (15 December) following an accident. He fell from the stage at Brixton Academy breaking two ribs and injuring his back but still returned to complete an encore. Doctors have advised Richard to rest until next year.

His tour began on 3 December at the Manchester Apollo, his next live shows will be during an American tour which opens in Chicago on 19 January 2001.
