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.


Small Stuff 31 Jul 2006

Tickets went on sale for the Stones/Cooper show in Halifax this morning and the Halifax Daily News has a story about fans queuing for tickets that seems to spend as much time talking about Alice as the Stones!

There's a somewhat odd story reported in the Register-guard about Alice's family piano that he sold a while back, and that Sheryl bought back!

Just released in the USA is a third volume of 'Bevis And Butthead' cartoons, entitled 'Beavis & Butt-head - The Mike Judge Collection, Vol. 3'. Of interest to us is the fact that it includes 'Teenage Frankenstein'. You can order here.

Alice Stoned Again 29 Jul 2006

AC.com have announced that Alice Cooper will be opening for The Rolling Stones in Halifax, NS on September 23rd at Halifax Common. Tickets go on sale to the public on July 31st at 10am. This show is obviously a kinda good will replacement for the canceled show in Germany earlier this year which was canceled after Keef Richards fell out of a tree.
AC.com is also listing the NYC show again for October 22nd but with the venue now to be confirmed (previously Ticketmaster had it listed for the Nokia Theater for a few hours before changing it to canceled).

For a bit of fun check out the Great Star Wars Synchronicity Project where James has been playing various albums while watching Star Wars and looking for places the music and images match up. His latest experiment features Billion Dollar Babies.

Interview and TV 27 Jul 2006

Alice's appearance in the Bob And Tom Morning show a few weeks back has been made available online over at their website.

The UK Artsworld HD Channel has a programme called 'Alice Cooper's Rock Revolutionaries' scheduled for Saturday 5th August at 9pm. The show is 90 minutes long. However it should be noted that Artsworld's magazine (a .pdf on their site) has something about the programme that seems to suggest it's a series of programmes featuring often previously commercially available content by artists like T-Rex and The Who and it doesn't actually mention Alice anywhere.

Halloween, NYC and Cats 26 Jul 2006

The Halloween show (Oct. 31st) went on sale this morning for Foxwoods Casino in Marshantucket, CT.
The New York show at the Nokia Theatre in October 22nd goes on sale on 28th July at noon.
UPDATE: New York City show has been canceled since it appeared on Ticketmaster this morning.
Additional show announced in Lakewood, NJ at the Strand Theater for October 21st.

Check out this article in the Journal-Review proving Alice Cooper isn't really a 'Gutter Cat' after "rocking the Montgomery County Cat show".

Press and TV 24 Jul 2006

German Magazine 'Rock Hard' features a DVD with Alice Cooper interview. It's the August 2006 issue you want to find with Lemmy on the cover.
(Thanks Petra)

The Red Paper Clip story appeared on Australia's '60 Minutes'  TV show a coupole of nights ago. The story featured some live performance clips, inside Cooperstown, and a very short interview with Alice.
(Thanks Murray)

US support band Crash Kelly comment on touring with Alice over at 'The Gauntlet'. They'll be supporting in Stugis and Billings this week and covered 'Cold Ethyl' on their last album. And in an almost identical type story Fireball Ministry, who support at the Salt Lake City and Las Vegas shows, also pass comment on the influence of Alice Cooper on their band here.

Interview and Review 23 Jul 2006

The Fond Du Lac Reporter has a short interview with Alice. There's also some extra comments by the interviewer here.
(Thanks NotSoPerfect. JollyJon)

There's a new review of the 'Rock In The Park' show up at the London Free Press site.

Watch out for Alice turning up on VH-1's '40 freakiest concert moments' today in the USA (and probably repeated several times).
