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.

100 Club revisted 27 Jun 2011

As everyone probably knows by now the band completely destroyed the 100 Club last night with a mixture of AC classics and British invasion covers that created the greatest rock and roll party London has seen in a long time. Actor Johnny Depp arrived on stage for 'I'm Eighteen' and 'School's Out' after AC.com posted teaser photos on facebook.  A great surprise but the real stars were Alice and the band who rocked like there was no tomorrow.
There's are plenty of personal reviews starting to appear in the forums and our own photos are up in the photo section if you want to check them out. There's already some press appearing as well with The SunThe Guardian, Entertainment Focus NME, and OnTheRedCarpet running features with some pics. More is sure to follow especially with the freak auditions today in London's Hyde Park.

Alice was also on 'Top Gear' yesterday. It's up on BBC iplayer but for those outside the UK it's also up on YouTube if you search (the original copy I linked to as been removed but there's likely to be others appearing).
