Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.


Site Move + New Video 30 Dec 2005

As some people may have spotted, STUK moved servers over the last few days. Everything is now on a new server with the exception of the message board which is working just fine where it's always been so I've left it there for now. Oh and there's also now a login box at the top right of the news page that will allow you to easily log into the board from the front page.
I've tried to check everything and it all seems to be working, however if you do enounter any problems I'd be greatful for a quick email to point them out. There's likely to be something I've missed somewhere. One word of advice though, some problems could be simply related to you having an old version of a file (especially the menu file) in your browser cache, so if you do find links not working try clearing your browser cache and reloading the page, often that will fix everything.

And in a small bit of Alice Cooper news: Check out the Bloodrayne movie site for a short clip from a video to "Mankind" which briefly features Alice at the beginning.

Oh.. and Happy New Year everyone!!

Small Stuff 26 Dec 2005

And in more Damon news, Alice and Damon are featured on the back of this months 'Guitar One Magazine' in a full page ad for Krank Amps in a cool shot of them next to the Guillotine.

"Mankind" 24 Dec 2005

As reported a few weeks ago on STUK, Alice has recorded a new song for the forthcoming film 'Bloodrayne', which is based on the successful computer game. You can find out more about the movie which opens in the USA on January 6th, here. The new song is called 'Mankind' and you can hear AND download it NOW courtesy of New West Records by clicking here. A verrrry nice Xmas present from New West Records to Alice Cooper fans!

And lastly if you are still looking for a late Xmas present then click the banner above and check out the new(ish) German photo book. I've put a review of it in the reviews section (link in left menu) but it's well worth grabbing with that left over Xmas money (and STUK makes a commission if you buy via the banner link!!).
