Sadness Kills The Superman performed two sets at Sickcon1. The first was a selection of great original songs, and then after a short break the returned and played a selection of Alice Cooper songs, many of which were rarely if ever played live by Alice Cooper. The setlist were:
Original Material: Shame / Highlife / Fallen / Comin' At Me / Outcast / Come To Call / Caught Out / Anything / Frontline
Alice Cooper Material: Muscle Of Love / Road Rats / Raped And Freezin' / For Britain Only / Is It My Body / Zorros Accent / Pain / You And Me / Be My Lover (with Joe Bouchard and Michael Bruce) / No More Mr Nice Guy (With Michael Bruce) / Billion Dollar Babies (with Michael Bruce)


Formed in 2001, by Ken Bloor for a UK tour with former ALICE COOPER GROUP member Michael Bruce. The band, Craig Price – Guitar, Paul Gaskin – Bass/Vocals and Jason Callear - Drums/Vocals, pulled off stunning performances during the tour, generating excellent reviews. Michael and his management were so impressed they invited the trio to the States for a special concert at Hollywood’s Whisky-a-GoGo in memory of Michael’s close friend and fellow Alice Cooper Group axeman Glen Buxton. There they were also joined on stage by Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult/BDS), Neal Smith & Dennis Dunaway (Alice Cooper Group/BDS). The Trio blasted out a great set and closed the show joined by various stars previously mentioned.
They had impressed so many, not to mention each other, that they decided to start writing original material. The results were exciting with a subtle blend of Modern Edged Metal and cutting grooves echoing their Classic Rock influences. Some 15-20 tunes later in May of 2002 they recorded a budget E.P 4 track Demo ‘
Shame’ which could be ordered from their website.
