|31st July 2000 Nightmare Child reviews|
|The UK press are starting
to review The Nightmare Child at last, PC Gamer has awarded it
80% in their latest issue. PC Format will be giving it something
similar in their next issue (out in a couple of weeks), and as
for Teletext on C4.... well let's just say that judging from their
review they saw the word KISS and didn't even play it. They gave
it 4/10 (you can see it on 481 Channel 4 today).
By the way, anyone wanting to arrange some online games
please let me know and I'll post the details on the site.

not include the booklet that came with the US version, however, a special Christmas boxed set is planned for both vhs and DVD. The
boxed set will include a colour booklet and also a music cd and a T-shirt.
As of yet it is unknown what will be on the CD.
Don't forget about the competition (see below).
|Hot on the heels of issue 5 (out NOW!) comes a Limited Publication from the Clown White
team. To commemorate our first twelve months, we're releasing a 'SPECIAL EDITION PACK'
titled 'THE FIRST YEAR...' (released August 2000). Containing the first 4 issues of Clown
White magazine in a 'Limited Edition' printed folder (see illustration attached), this offer will be
retailed at a special† price - four magazines for the price of two. For ordering information

Watch out for the new issue with the 'last Kiss interview'. Despite claiming to be original it's a cut down version of the Metal Edge interview. Still nice to see them on the cover of a mainstream magazine.

|23rd July 2000 Nightmare Child Review|
|At last I've got my hands on the full version of KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child, and without doubt it was well worth the wait. The game should be in the shops by this Friday (28th July), until then have a look at the review...|
|21st July 2000 Eric Singer|
I went along to see Eric Singer , I mean Alice Cooper on Wednesday at Hammersmith.
Eric was in fine form and looked to be enjoying himself. I was surprised when the band went off and left Eric to a drum solo! He performed an excellent solo complete with flaming drum sticks! (Gene & Paul would've been proud of him) As Eric stopped some arsehole at the back shouted "fuck off" followed by "get KISS off". Can't please them all.
Alice put on a brilliant show with an excellent band.
Last month I was working on Leslie Wests UK tour and Richie Scarlet played bass for him. Richie also happens to be Aces guitarist - as well as Sebastian Bach!
He is one hell of a cool dude and I'm seriously thinking about bring him over from NY early next year to do some dates. I know this is getting further and further away from Kiss but do you think it would generate much interest ?.
Also a bit of trivia for you. Stray were the support band for Leslie West and guess who were the support band on Kiss first UK tour ? Spooky eh ?
If you have any thoughts on seeing Richie please drop KISSin' UK an E-mail and it'll be passed on to Paul.
|19th July 2000 Nightmare Child Demo!|
|At last a demo of Psycho
Circus has appeared, although you're probably best off waiting
for it to appear on a magazine disk as it's a massive 73MB
download! There's 5 levels to play though, so you get to see
parts from all 4 worlds.
You can find more info from out mates over at
|On the awful Roseanne
show today there was a surprise phone call from Gene Simmons. I
haven't seen the show yet but it's been taped so I'll transcribe
it later. That show is bad though, thankfully when I was
in Vegas they were showing the last one... ever, 'bout time.
|KISS Club Anthem|
On Sunday 16th July, Pop Sushi (Trouble, Sundays 11.00) I happened to turn on the TV and suddenly a clip of the "Crazy Crazy Nights" video was played. It was repeated later so I recorded it. It was this club promoter talking about what the best club anthem was. And it was Crazy Crazy Nights!!!!!!
|18th July 2000 The Second Coming|
forget that The Second Coming
is released on July 24th on PAL VHS and region 2 DVD. So
far a good place to get hold of it seems to be Blackstar
who are offering a pre-order discount on the DVD.
Thanks to James Vincent & John Bethel for the Blackstar

|8th July 2000 Iceman|
|Sadly I have some very bad news to
announce - Karl, the webmaster of Iceman's KISS page passed away on
Wednesday 5th July after sustaining injuries from a car accident earlier
Icemans KISS Page was a UK site run from Karl's home of Jersey, not only have we lost a great person but also a great contribution to the online KISS world.
KISSin' UK would like to pass on our sincere condolences to Karl's family in their time of need. If anyone want to pass on any messages to his family you can do so from the site at http://iceman.simplenet.com/
|6th July 2000 Nightmare Child|
|The latest news from Take2 is that
KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child is delayed by approx 2 weeks - the
new expected release date is set at 28th July. The game is coming
along nicely though with a few final bugs being ironed out before it goes
into mass production.
A few people have asked where to buy it from, being that it's a major
release and that the reviews so far have been very good expect to find it
on the shelves of any major chain that sells PC games (Dixons, Virgin,
Electronic Boutique, PC World etc). It'll probably go for about 30 quid,
but show around 'cause some shops do offers on the first couple of weeks

Issue 5 of CLOWN WHITE magazine will be published July 20th, including 'EXCLUSIVE' photos and story from our stay in Canada during June. There'll also be all your regulars - news, reviews and feedback - plus a superb feature looking at the involvement of 'Public Relations' in Kiss's success story.
Hi there My name is Greg Davies. I am the webmaster of "The Revenge Within"
(home of the KISS Fan Sludge Sessions).
I have put together an online petition for an Australian KISS Tour with fellow Aussie KISS Fan, Nikzilla.
We feel that we Aussie fans deserve a chance to see them one last time as well... many of us are tired of the "backflipping" responses and news we keep getting on an Aussie tour. One day we are getting them, the next we aren't - and all word is unconfirmed rumour....
I look forward to your positive reply. Thanks again. Greg
|2nd July 2000 Nightmare Child review on ITV|
Just thought you'd like to know that Nightmare Child has been featured on Bits, a channel 4 show. It was screened on Fri 30th June and will be repeated at 02.40 Sun 2nd July.
It was only a quick review, and it was pitched against another game
called 'Heavy Metal Fakk2'.
Just thought I'd tell you that while at Glastonbury festival last weekend, I noticed and had verified by the 40 foot screens on either side of the stage, that the guitarist of Scottish band Travis was wearing a rather fetching kiss t-shirt. The shirt was white and had embellished on it a nice black and white design of the 4 kiss faces in all their glory!
just thought it was cool, so id tell you know too!
|Gene on cover of Hard Rock magazine|
The new German ROCK HARD magazine (July 2000) has a pic. from Gene Simmons on the cover + a 6 page article. It's the same article like the one in the latest Metal Edge but with different photos!
