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.

Embrace will be offering a free download from their official web site (www.embrace.co.uk). The download will be of an exclusive live version of 3 Is A Magic Number, the band were joined on stage by Bob Dorough who did the original version of the song in the seventies. The track will be available to download on Christmas Day and will be deleted from the site on Boxing Day.

Danny McNamara said that one of the highlights of 2000 was "doing 3 Is A Magic Number with Bob Dorough at Brixton - that really made my year."

Embrace are currently working on their third album scheduled for release sometime next year.
