Two approaches.  The first is to parse the cue file that ices
generates.  On my system at least, the artist and song constitute
the last two lines of said cue file.  The location of this file is
set in your ices.conf file.

Another approach is to write a perl handler for ices.  in the
ices_perl_get_next() function, insert the chosen song info into a
database table.  Then write a PHP script to select from that table.
