The site was created back in 2000 as 'Erasure: An Unofficial Site' at a web
template on Zyweb but soon with a move to Geocities dawned and a new HTML site
was finally introduced by late 2001 and the site was named 'Erasure Online'. The new site was
designed using Loveboat colour schemes and fonts. By early 2002, the site was
designed using Flash technology. However updates were hard using this format and
by mid 2002 with a new Erasure album in the process of being made, a new site
design was incorporated and when I first heard Wonderland, I changed the name of
the site to the wonderful 'March On Down The Line'.
From there the site went from strength to strength with more and more exclusive
features being published with more and more fans praising the site. In 2004 I
decided to give the site a new unique identity - the only Erasure fan site to
publish information on selected other artists in the
section of the website.
The artists chosen was Soft Cell, Human League and Kylie Minogue. These proved
to be very successful despite the only brief biographies, chart positions and
selected images and MP3 sound clips.
By May 2005 with the Kylie page alone taking in hundreds of unique views a month
it was decided to expand the March On Down The Line site to include a complete
It was at this point that March On Down The Line became massive - the amazing
forum attracts many posts every day from people from South Wales and Yorkshire
to Boston and Denmark.
2006 saw another big change when we moved domains and changed the site name to
Erasure-Interactive when the demand on the March On Down The Line site came to
big for both the Erasure and Kylie sites to continue on the same server.
2008 and 2009 were very difficult years after a number of number of financial
problems and server attacks led to long periods of downtime. However by 2010
Erasure-Interactive relaunched successfully on new hosting at
Dream-hosting and we're all ready
for Erasure's hopeful 2010 comeback.
The first few months of 2010 also saw us launch a Facebook and Twitter update
service to compliment our re-launched forum and existing YouTube channel. Our
Facebook page has already 60 fans.
When I first designed the site in 2000 to coincide with the release of the
Erasure album 'Loveboat' I never could have imagined the success story that lay
ahead of me. Here's looking to 2010 and hopefully this'll be our biggest and
most successful year to date.
