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.

Alice has been announced as appearing at another horror convention. This one is 'Monster-Mania' which happens between March 13th and 15th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ. More info here.

'Nights With Alice Cooper' have posted the Guitar World magazine feature on 'Billion Dollar Babies'. It comes up as a series of small images but if you right-click and select "view image" (or similar) it should load the full size pic so you can read it.

There's a Youtube video up now of Alice appearing on 5 News discussing the Xmas Pudding show.

According to Alice will be appearing at the Texas Fightmare Weekend Horror Convention between May 1st and 3rd in Dallas TX. They say this is likely to co-incide with the release of 'Suck', the Rock and Roll Vampire movie currently filming in Canada that also features Calico.

There's quite a few news reports now about the forthcoming Aviva advert featuring Alice, said to be one of the most expensive adverts ever made, though none really say anything new beyond what I reported last week.

Those with long memories may remember an announcement that Alice would be appearing in a animated series called "Hungry Hamsters". Since then, nothing. Well it seems the project is still going and there's a video about the production here. However there is NO mention of Alice so whether he's even still involved I don't know, however the link does comes from someone connected to the show as "Alice related".
UPDATE: Apparently he is!

Damon Johnson's old band Brother Caine have a limited edition official DVD out now. "It's a two disc set with never-before-seen backstage, offstage, and concert footage (a 40-minute show as the opening act for Van Halen in Fresno from '95), interview content, and the complete reunion concert from Pensacola, FL in 2005'" You can get a copy here.

Dash Cooper and Runaway Phoenix will be playing two shows in December at Cooperstown:
