The Setlist Competition
Last call for entries for the setlists competition (details below). If you are working on one then get it in to me soon so we can start judging. There`s only been 16 entries so far so there`s still a chance of winning. So far there are, I think, one or two clear favourites.
I think a cut off of friday should be enough time at which point we`ll decided the winner(s) and I`ll put up the page with all the entries on.

Alice on CNN
This Monday (5th July) Alice Cooper will be on CNN International in the show “Living Golf” at 20:30 GMT (22:30 CET).
Update: It seems Sky guide is showing this as being on at 21.30 in the UK. This would make sense if its on at 22.30 in Europe.

Competition Winners
Jollyjon and I have been through all the entries for the Setlists competition and I'll let Jollyjon make the announcements in his own unique style:

It was a difficult choice blah blah blah but by and large setlists with direction and lighting went through to the shortlist and for fevered discussions in the top field. It's fair to say that we're 'Dada' bias and 'My Stars' / 'Blue Turk' will always get extra credit.

Our nominations for the "Never gonna happen awards" (but still amusing) are :-

- 10 minute breaks mid show
- Sheep falling from ceilings (honorable mention though)
- Huge 5ft joints
- Schools Out as opening track

OK

In reverse order :-

3rd place: Denise Firman & Rob Upton (a tie)

2nd place: Alex Bergdahl
Great great song selection. Maybe just a little too out there. I'd pay good money to see this show WITH THEATRICS. Not for the casual fan I'm afraid. Alice would see the potential and write a great new theatrical show to go with. Yes 'Dada' into 'Former Lee Warmer' yes! yes! yes! 'My stars' yes! yes! If only you'd said full theatrical show!

1st place: Simon Keen
Unique new show well thought out. Love the idea of distinct acts to a show. The design of this show tops the list whilst the setlist we feel is 2nd to Mr Bergdahl's. That said a master stroke putting in 'I Love America'. We NEED to hear that live. Wonder how much a Hummel weighs? May need to scale down vehicle wise in smaller intimate venues? Camper Van might have got on the Dublin stage or maybe a foldout concetina cardboard limo (nah maybe not) Can you imagine the front row at Hammersmith when 'Slick Black Limo' kicks in! Great stuff.

----

I`d like to add that JJ and I agreed on the winners seperately. both putting together a short list which, when compared, almost exactly matched. This made the final results easier to decide. I'd like to thank everyone who took part. It was great reading all the lists and there were some very good ideas in there. You can see all the entries [link=http://www.alicecoopertrivia.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/setlists/setlistcompetition.php]here and there`s a topic open in on the message board if you wnt to leave comments.
So finally, if the winners (that`s Denise, Alex and Simon. I have Robs)could email me their snail mail addresses I'll get the prizes in the post over the next week or so. Simon gets the CD's, posters and stuff. The runners up will get a package of posters, flyers and assorted bits and pieces. Thanks to EVERYONE who took part. Hopefully we'll do it again some time.

Unity In The UK
[link=http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0002H2WSE/sickthingsuk-21/] Amazon are finally offering pre-orders on the new "Unity: Athens 2004" album. This of course is the album featuring the new track, "Stand", by Alice and rapper Xzibit. I've heard it. It's not awful but also not that inspiring to be honest. Kinda more "Brutal Planet" then "Eyes". Still, Alice does get the lion's share of the vocal so that makes it worth getting on its own. You can pre-order [link=http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0002H2WSE/sickthingsuk-21/]here.

Belgium TV
Patrick in Belgium writes to say that there is a 2 hours special on the Graspop festival airing on TMF (The Music Factory) tonight at 21.00. No details as yet but as Alice headlined this hear and has played there in previous years it's probably safe to expect some Alice content in the show.

Dennis Dunaway Show + Alice TV(US)
From a post to usenet:
"Dennis will be playing a set for a benefit concert in Danbury, CT on
Sunday July 18. The show starts at 6 pm at Tuxedo Junction. A Zeppelin
tribute band called Hindenberg will also do a set. Hindenberg includes
players from Rat Race Choir, Ace Frehley's Band, Zebra, and another Zep
tribute band Physical Graphiti."
I know nothing more then this.

Also watch out on July 18th for the "Michael Douglas & Friends" Golf show to be shown on ABC Sports (USA) following screening of the British Open Golf championship. The tournament took place on May 1st-2nd this year.

And lastly for US watchers The Travel Channel will be showing a show featuring Cooperstown at some point tonight (Tuesday). Hopefully Americans will find a few more details to help them out.
UPDATE: It seems to be called "Food Crazy" and is on at 8pm (Eastern)

US Tour
Well the US tour is now underway. Reports indicate there are no changes from the European leg. Same setlist so far although I wouldn't be surprised if 'Elected' is added in at some point soon. Apparently Eric Dover took a tumble from the scaffolding at the first show but appears to be ok.
Also check out the merchandise stand where they have left over stuff from last year at half price apparently. Result!

Kiss Talk Alice
Thanks to Brett for the following:

On the new VH1 program, "When Kiss Ruled the World," the band actually gives Alice a very generous nod and speak of how in awe of him they were when they first saw him in concert. That opens the door for the "4 Alice Coopers" story.
Probably the most complimentary acknowledgement of Alice from Kiss that I
have seen in a long time. The Beat Club footage is shown for a few seconds.

Another Review
Here's a review of last nights show at the [link=http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/LondonFreePress/Today/2004/07/24/554837.html]London Free Press. It appears the US show is slightly different to the European ones with Calico now dressed as Uma Thurman from 'Kill Bill' for a sword fight. 'Elected' has now been added to the setlist at the expense of the BP medley. Unsurprising as its an election year.

Another Toronto Review
A rather amusing review has turned up on [link=http://www.chartattack.com/DAMN/2004/07/2310.cfm]Chart Attack in Canada. While generally positive there are some laughs to have from some of the comments. Especially where the writer says how much better this years band were to last years "tubby, balding 40-something's". The fact that with the exception of the drummer its the same band seems to have escaped him!!

Alice and Bart Get It On
[link=http://www.alicecoopertrivia.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/newspics/simpsons_big.jpg] September 24th (US)will see the release of a "Bart Simpsons Tree House Of Horror" issue 10. Why should this be of interest to us? Well, obviously because Alice is featured both on the cover and inside that`s why! Released by Bongo Comics, here`s the details:
"Join Bongo and it’s special guest writers - Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons, and Rob Zombie - as they take you on a heavy metal, Halloween-inspired rock ’n’ roll odyssey of head banging, heart pounding, tongue-wagging, dead-raising, nightmare-welcoming frights and frivolity guaranteed to blow your mind. And it doesn’t get any better than when extra special guest writer, Pat Boone himself, gets into a metal mood and tells a twisted tale of dastardly demons and righteous redemption. The four Monsters of Rock are joined by sidemen Bill Morrison, C. Scott Morse. Tone Rodriguez, Ty Templeton, and Chris Yambar for the Halloween jam of the century! Treat yourself a terrific time of Treehouse-inspired terror and rock the night away! Heavy Metal comes to Springfield this September"
(Thanks To Andy Michael)
