I have a Cooperstown, fully buttoned, short sleeve t-shirt that I won on ebay. :) Is of a high quality but only uses very thin material (presumably because Phoenix, Arizona is very hot or humid) so it only gets worn during a couple of months each year.

Yeah, Phoenix is in the middle of the Arizona desert.

We Start Wars - The Animal Inside

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-0brh0DuJY

The first song by Nita Strauss' all female band.

It sounds a real mess to begin with, great shredding and powerhouse drums but the vocals really don't fit... however it actually grows on you by the end.

Cardboard box drums again!

To my ears, producers really struggle to get the sound of the drums correct

A (very) drunk Alice on a live Australian television show entitled 'Countdown' in 1977

To be fair to Alice while he is drunk he's a lot more professional than the presenter and the producer of that show, what a shambles haha.

It brings back memories of the presenters of the 1980's Channel 4 music show 'The Tube'!

In other news, the Alice Cooper forum has got a strange message on the front page. It simply says "07282017", plus a weird and garbled video

Everything seems to be pointing at a release date for the new album: 28th July, 2017

Before Led Zeppelin had 'The Starship' and a long time before Ed Force One, the Alice Cooper Group used a Lockheed L-188A Electra N5017K during the 'Billion Dollar Babies Tour' in May, 1973

It's been suggested that the new album will be entitled 'Paranormal'

In a recent Australian interview, the question is asked:

"You mentioned new music before and itís been a long while since new music from you, what can we expect?"

and the answer given is:

"Well Iíve got a new album coming out in July and itís called ĎParanormalí and itís Bob Ezrin and I, Bob is producing. Larry Mullen is playing drums on it from U2, thatís a whole different thing, Billy Gibbons plays on one of the songs, from ZZ Top, and then itís really all stuff that Bob and I just decided weíre going to do an album of stuff that we like.

So it goes all over the place but itís still a guitar rock album, we decided no story-line in this one, the songs all have a story but thereís no connecting sort of string that connects the songs all together. So thatís why we called it ĎParanormalí itís sort of other than normal for us.

You know Iím at a point now when Iím making albums now Iím making albums for my audience, for the Alice Cooper fans, I donít think in this generation the way the music business is youíre really not making albums to break a new audience.

I think itís great if you do get people that discover you and do become Alice fans, but itís a whole different thing than it was in the seventies.

In the seventies youíd make an album and people would go out and buy it and they would become your fans, now I think itís so scattered and splintered that Alice is gonna be Alice, KISS is gonna be KISS weíve all established ourselves with a certain sound and certain look and weíre really not looking, I know itís great that people are coming along but weíre not sitting there saying weíve gotta break the twenty year olds into Alice Cooper.

If they discover us, great, but I listen to the radio now and I kinda donít get it, itís very introspective and itís kinda all over the place. Thereís a couple of great bands but itís not like it was in the seventies where almost every band was unique."

A second teaser video has been posted on YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7Qhhpt6P0o

So...we have a song that is called 'Faster' being played backwards. Allegedly when this is reversed, it features Alice saying "Everybody's got something hiding, in the back of their mind". However, some people have stated that it sounds more like King Diamond rather than Alice!!!!

For those who like mathematics, the description underneath the YouTube video contains a binary code - 00110000 00110111 00110010 00111000 00110010 00110000 00110001 00110111 00001101 00001010 01110100 01101000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01100011 01101000 01100001 01101110 01101110 01100101 01101100 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01100010 01100101 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01110000 01101111 01110011 01110011 01100101 01110011 01110011 01100101 01100100 00100000 01100010 01111001 00100000 01110011 01101111 01101101 01100101 01110100 01101000 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01110000 01100001 01110010 01100001 01101110 01101111 01110010 01101101 01100001 01101100 - which again allegedly
translates into "07282017 this channel is being possessed by something paranormal"

Finally, the video contains a Morse code message giving the previously revealed release date
