On May 14, following Alice Cooper‘s customary execution via guillotine on stage at his Nashville concert, fans were treated to something rarely seen since 1973. The stage went dark and original band members, bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith reunited to perform a five song mini-set of their classic hits with Alice. This followed the recent announcement that his forthcoming album — “Paranormal”, out July 28 on earMUSIC — will include two new recordings written and recorded by the original lineup (“Genuine American Girl” and “You And All Of Your Friends”).

Now, Alice announces that the three members of the original Alice Cooper band will join him on tour in the U.K., returning to these shores 46 years after they first shocked and enthralled us on their historic 1971 tour.

In Nashville, they were joined by current band member Ryan Roxie filling in for the late Glen Buxton on guitar. The band ripped through “I’m 18”“No More Mr. Nice Guy”“Muscle Of Love”“Billion Dollar Babies” and then closed with “School’s Out”, bringing back current band members — drummer Glen Sobel, bassist Chuck Garric, and guitarists Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen — for a grand finale.

BPP _ Live at Freakstock 2012UK Christian Thrash band Back Pocket Prophet is preparing to perform their first ever acoustic set on May 18th at this years Meltdown Retreat. After being a regular staple for Meltdown over the last few years it was suggested that they do something a little different; so the amps are being turned down [slightly], the band will all be sat down [probably] and the singing will be in tune [hopefully].

Says singer Dan Random: “We’re having to re-learn songs that we’ve been playing for years in order to capture the new dynamics. It’s been a surprising couple of months for us.” Continue reading »
