Remember how you spoke about this "new thing" the internet in the Partyzone show. That was august 94.

Back in 1994? Very few...

From what I can remember back then, Mixmaster Morris definitely had a site, The Black Dog, and possibly The Shamen?

A lot of sites (used) to be on Hyperreal, however a lot of the "mini" sites no longer exist - possbly on some kind of Internet Archive sites?

Spooky - Gargantuan has a website adress on the CD backside. And that is released in 1992. Although the one I've seen can be a re-release.

I remember the Beastie Boys having a site really early on.

Which reminds me, an album worth of Benaco (Andy Barker) material apparently got lost due to a computer crash too... :-?

God imagine all that time and effort spent to suddenly lose it all, you must feel like commiting suicide. Its bad enough when you lose a page of text without saving it in time and have to redo it all, imagine a whole album, apparently it happened to Orbital as well.

Yes, I can only imagine what that must feel like - I've lost documents (etc) due to computer crashes, but nothing that couldn't be put right with a week or so work... :(

Nowadays, I backup my main personal interests (music/genealogy documents) onto a mirrored network drive at home (i.e. if one drive dies, then at least I can get it working again), which I then (at various intervals) backup onto a DVD-R...

A well known Danish artist had his studio broken into and they ran way with the computers including a lot of finished songs, that did not have an outside backup.

That's where you almost hope for a bootleg release of your songs.

Yup there's a lot to be said for outside backup. In case of fire all your inhouse back-ups won't do much good.
