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.

Sydney 2011 Show Online 22 Dec 2012

Some fans may remember the announcement that 'Moshcam' in Australia filmed the Sydney show back in September 2011 with the promise that it would be available to watch. Well over a year later they've finally uploaded it and you can watch the entire show here.

Firebrand Radio's interview the other night with Dennis Dunaway is now available to listen to here. The interview starts at the 36 minute mark. The show recieved the highest ever listening audience for a single show the station has ever had.

Damon Johnson and his Thin Lizzy bandmates played a blinding final show at Shepherd's Bush Empire on Monday. Many of you probably already know that the band (especially Damon and vocalist Ricky Warwick) have been writing new material together and a couple of days after the show they made the official announcement about their plans for these new songs. Damon, Ricky, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendosa have formed a new band called 'Black Star Riders' and recruited ex-Alice Cooper and Megadeth drummer Jimmy DeGrasso to replace Lizzy founder Brian Downey (who doesn't want to tour as much in the future). A new album will be forthcoming in the new year with tour dates which will, of course, still feature a selection of Lizzy classics along with the new music. The band have launched an official facebook page with website to follow.

Fox10 News have posted a news clip on Orianthi which includes comments from Alice.

There's a new 'Me, Alice' blog posted on 'Nights With Alice Cooper'.

Orianthi performed with the KLOS All Star Band at the 95.5 KLOS Christmas Show yesterday at Nokia Theatre in L.A. There's some backstage footage here.

Lastly, it appears there has been some problems with the STUK email address the last couple of months which has caused emails from an unknown number of domains to dissapear and never arrive here, with no bounce or fail messages being returned to the sender either. I'm in the process of trying to work around the issue, but wanted to say something in case anyone has been sending stuff in and not getting any replies. I will almost always reply in some way to people who send stuff in to me, so if you didn't hear anything back it's likely I never saw it. Hopefully the situation will soon be resolved.

Michael Bruce In Iceland Video 13 Dec 2012

Back in 2002 Michael Bruce travelled to Iceland to play a couple of shows with members of icelandic band DIMMA. From the shows two albums were released, 'Halo Of Ice' and 'The Second Coming Of Michael Bruce'. Now Ingo has made a 40 minute professionally shot video from the shows available that has never before been seen by the public.
