New Article
Check out this new biography at [link=]Rock Radio. Nothing new of course but still a good read with a couple of pics as well.

Also: [link=] are listing yet another reissue of "A Fistful Of Alice" under yet another name, 'Live in Cabo Wabo '96', following on from "Alive" and "Live and Slippery" that have appeared over the last few months. Why this has suddenly started being re-issued over and over I don't know but lets hope we don`t have another "Freak Out" situation beginning.

UPDATE: 'Live in Cabo Wabo '96' is an official reissue of 'A Fistful Of Alice'. 'Alive' is a semi-unauthorised (ie legal but not really official) reissue of same album, and 'Live And Slippery' will never be released.

Sunday Roundup
Quite a quiet day today luckily as I've been offline for most of it, but here's a couple of things of interest:

Cindy has kindly put up her photo's from the show in Tilburg (with Emsdetten to come soon) [link=]here.

'Dirty Diamonds' will be released in Australia on August 1st although I've yet to work out exactly who is releasing it there or confirm if it will feature 'The Sharpest Pain'. And speaking of that song French site [link=] have a 30 second sample from it up now. This is odd as the french version as far as I know doesn't feature the song but has 'Stand' the same as all the others. Weird.

September 13th sees the release of 'Tony Orlando & Dawn - The Ultimate Collection' in the USA. This three DVD set is taken from the dubious 1970s variety show and of interest to us is that the press release indicates that Alice's appearance on the show is included. I'll post a AmazonUK link when it appears.

Paris Pics and Stuff (Updated)
Everyone is back from Paris safe and sound and it appears its been pretty quiet while I've been away. I`ll add news items here as I come across them but first up the every reliable Mr Crowe has already added some pics of the Paris show to [link=]
The Paris show was the same as the Australian shows as far as I could tell. Same setlist etc. Still only two 'Dirty Diamonds' tracks in the show which is very dissapointing to say the least, especially as the two songs that were played got a great reaction. Highlights were Alice, in fantastic voice this year. Roxie being Roxie, the perfect guitar god. The 'Welcome To My Nightmare' section of the show and 'I wish I was Born in Beverly Hills' which sounded great.

Also: More pics, this time of the Montreux show, can be found [link=]here

A few articles have appeared while I was away so he's a quick rundown of what I've seen so far:
[link=]Live Daily has a short US tour announcement.
There's a fantastic new Neal Smith interview over at [link=]Rock N Roll Universe. Lots of history there.

Reviews (some may have been mentioned before): [link=]Loud Planet, [link=]RoomThirteen, [link=], [link=]Birmingham101.

This news page won't be updated for a couple of days as I`m heading off to see Alice!! WickedYoungMan will post any news that comes through direct to the message board so check there for updates and if YOU have any news then post it through there as well. When I get back I'll summerise everything here.
I doubt I'll have any access to email while away either so if you send something in I will deal with it when I return.

"Roxie's Big Rawk Show!" (Updated)
From the [link=]Roxieblog:
"Coming to you somewhere between Stockholm and Los Angeles, It's ROXIE'S BIG ROCK SHOW.....'cause wherever you are is the place to be...." 07/07/05 is the "BIG RAWK SHOW" debut!
Now the details on how to get in on this. If yer 12 years old or own a MAC leave the room because this will be boring for you. For the rest of you 13+ yrs & on WINDOWS try using Doppler to "tune-in" to download the client. It's really easy to setup & add feeds.
BTW... the url for my feed is
Tune in on 07/07/05 for the official launch of the show!

Also: More reviews: [link=]RoomThirteen, [link=]Baconmusic. Both good ones! Also [link=]Bravewords has a few words with Alice himself about the new album.
(Thanks Andy, Tim)
Additional Reviews: [link=]Treehouse of Death, [link=]The Scottsman

Also: This mornings dose of Alice commetary from the Ken Bruce show again comes courtesy of Mr JollyJon. This time its the brilliant [link=]'You Make Me Wanna' under the spotlight.

Also: 'Live And Slippery' appears to be the title of a reissue of 'A Fistful Of Alice. Its now listed at AmazonUK [link=]here and shows the AFOA cover. No track list yet so no clue if it has any extra tracks.

Slippery Alice
[link=]Totalrock are reporting that "Alice Cooper is to have a live album released through EMI on August 15. To be called 'Live 'N' Slippery' it was recorded in San Lucas, Mexico on June 2, 1996 at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina."
As this is the same show 'A Fistful Of Alice', and that was released by Guardian who were owned by EMI, I guess it's safe to think this another reissue under a new title. However there were various bonus tracks on different versions, plus I believe a couple of songs were cut, so maybe there will be more to it then that. Time will tell.

Also: The second track played on the Ken Bruce 'Album of the week" slot this morning was "Sunset Babies" and you can here what Alice had to say about it [link=]here
(Thanks JollyJon)

Monday Morning
Happy 4th July to all our US readers. Hope you have a great day!!

[link=]ICWales have a new interview up with Alice today. Lots of talk about the Cooper Kids in this one.

Alice features on the cover of 'The Big Issue' this week. There is an two page article in it. This is the magazine that supports the homeless so a bargain at 1.20. So when the next authorised seller asks you if you want a copy say yes!

'Alice Cooper/Dirty Diamonds' album of the week started on the Ken Bruce show this morning. Listen [link=]here to see what Alice had to say about the song 'Perfect'.
(thanks Jollyjon)

As previously reported Alice was co-presenter the drive time slot on Western Australia's 96fm this morning. Unfortunatly their [link=]netfeed wasn`t working (at least for me) so I haven't heard it yet.

US fans CAN buy the album on import through AmazonUS as well although how much before the US release date (August 2nd) you would get it I wouldn't like to guess. Again, just click the link below.

More UK Radio and Reviews
