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.

Show reviews can be found at the Edmonton Sun, Jam Showbiz, Blog CriticsEdmonton Journal, and SeattlePI.

The Vancouver Sun has a few photos from the Saskatoon show.

Ryan Roxie and Casablanca have some new songs up at their MySpace page. The songs will featureon their forthcoming debut album due soon. The band will be openning for Kiss on June 13th in Malmo, Sweden.

The Toronto Sun has a short interview with Alice during which he discusses his ideas for the next album, currently entitled 'The Night Shift' "Ten songs are written already. It’s going to be called 'The Night Shift'. The concept is, it’s a really dark radio show where I’m the disc jockey, and every song I play will be by a different fictitious band. At some point, you’ll realize this disc jockey is a little bit more than that. And I’m sure there will be some kind of a twist ending."

The Standard Freeholder also has a few words with Alice.

Star Press mentions Alice as scheduled to attend the golf fundraiser for 'Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware County' at the Delaware Country Club, Muncie on May 17th.

More details on Damon Johnsons appearances at the Dallas International Guitar Festival. Damon will be appearing at the Guilford Guitars booth on the 16th April at 3:00 pm and on the 17th April at 12:00 pm, as well as the previously mentiosn all star jam sessions.

In related news Damon also posted the following update on his forthcoming solo album:
"Generation Landslide" is my favorite Alice Cooper song of his entire career. It was a good day when I came up with the idea to cut my own version of it, more than anything as a tip of the hat to Coop in gratitude for all he's done for me. And it was an even better day with I called to ask him if he'd play harmonica on my track and he quickly said, "of course". Meredith and I flew to Phoenix and tracked Alice in his studio in his house, and he totally blew our minds by performing the harmonica part, literally, note-for-note the way he did on the 'Billion Dollar Babies' album in 1973. And to top it off, he graciously sang the 2nd chorus with me. As my buddy Audley says, "That's hot!"
