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.

A couple of small items. Akron Beacon Journal has a review of 'Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper' which is now finally in the shops in the UK, and for Tommy Clufetos fans he'll be out on tour with Rob Zombie again starting March 17th in Jacksonville, Florida and concluding five weeks later in Mesa, Arizona.

Roxie Radio Special 28 Jan 2006

United Rock Radio are having a Ryan Roxie/Roxie77 special courtesy of our friend Droid on February 4th at 7pm-Midnight EST. Along with spotlighting the brilliant Roxie77 album 'Peace Love and Armageddon' in it's entirety throughout the show, he'll also play some Electric Angels, Slash's Snakepit & anything else Roxie-related he can find. There's also a chatroom you can join during the show to make comments and join in the fun.
United Rock is an internet only rock station and you can listen online by clicking the link above, and while you're there you could do worse then check out the shows by STUK's own WickedYoungMan (Double DJ) and Robby at various times during the week. Plenty of Alice Cooper content is assured!

Alice For Reading/Leeds? 26 Jan 2006

Various sources are now suggesting Alice Cooper will be on the bill for the Reading And Leeds Festivals in the UK in August. It seems to have started out yesterday at VirtualFestivals who listed Alice as "rumoured", moved onto another site today who had it as "likely" and has now morphed into "expected" at most sites like Dotmusic and Launch. I've seen nothing actually confirming this yet though, but keep your eyes open if you are interested on going.

Robby posted that Ryan Roxie, Damon Johnson, and Chuck Garric were all at the NAMM Music show in California last week and performed a short acoustic set on one of the stands. The setlist was No More Mr. Nice Guy / Be My Lover / 18 / Unknown Song / Jailbreak (Thin Lizzy).
(Thanks Robby)

Travelvideo have news that the Greater Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims of 2005 by donating a "Dream Golf Package" with rock star Alice Cooper to "Dream Auction 2006." Quote: "The winner of the "Dream Golf Package" will enjoy the luxuries of The Phoenician Resort and Spa, an unforgettable round of golf at Troon North Golf Club with Alice Cooper, two round-trip airline tickets, a three-day car rental and an additional round of golf at The Phoenician.". To bid on packages in "Dream Auction 2006" and help the hurricane victims of 2005, log on to dreamauction2006.

Round Up 25 Jan 2006

As mentioned last week (13th) Alice is reportedly appearing at a Katrina benefit show in Cerritos, CA on February 1st. Blabbermouth and CalanderLive are both now running short mentions of the event.

Swedish Magazine Expressen had a photo of Alice in it's 'Extras' magazine this weekend together with four trivia questions about the pic, including one that wasn't even about Alice! They were:
Who is it?
What's his hobby?
What was the name of the record that came in 1972 and looked like a school desk?
What's the name of another hardrocker who's married to someone named Sharon?
(Thanks Maria)

WireImage has posted a few photos from the Bob Hope Golf Tournament.
(Thanks NotSoPerfect)

VirtualFestival is listing Alice Cooper as rumoured to be appearing at Augusts Reading and Leeds festivals although this seems unlikely now he's confirmed for the Monsters Of Rock.
(Thanks JollyJon)

The BBC have posted an online version of the HardTalk interview from last November that I posted when it aired. You can watch it from their site here.
(Thanks Alan)

More Small Stuff 22 Jan 2006

Press: The Palm Springs Desert Sun has a new interview with Alice today.

Television: ABC have been showing brief clips of Alice at the Bob Hope golf tournament this week. The main one was an interview segment which also included Justin Timberlake and Darrius Rucker of Hootie & The Blowfish conducted by pro-golfer/announcer Nick Faldo. Faldo mentioning that he had Alice's 15th club on hand (only 14 allowed in golf) and he handed Alice a rather large knife. Alice poceeded to stalk the tee with the blade in clenched fist saying "Now I can really play this game!!". They didn't show him hitting the ball but as the network broke for commercial they did play a loop of the instrumental opening riff to Billion Dollar Babies.
(Thanks David)
There's also been a brief appearnce on TV from the Barret-Jackson auto auction mentioned a few days ago. Alice sold one of the three cars he was selling, a custom made silver and black 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom 2 Door Coupe with graphics based on the 'Dirty Diamonds' album. The hotrod had Alice's eyes and part of his face on the sides (like the album) with the dirty diamonds logo lettering in red on the trunk. He was also interviewed briefly on Speedvision.
(Thanks Mike, Bev)

And in other golf news there are short mentions of Alice at the tournament all over the place. Most aren't worth worryiing about but the North Country Times has something more then a namecheck with a couple of Alice quotes.
(Thanks Psychopat).
