Remix Not New

October 20, 2000  |  Comments Off on Remix Not New  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Apparently, the remix of “God Be With You” used in the film “Turks” was not brand new. Radio stations in Ottawa also broadcasted a remix of the song in 1998, so the mix can be traced back as at least two years old. Still no other info about the origin of the mix.

“God Be With You” Remix in Movie

October 8, 2000  |  Comments Off on “God Be With You” Remix in Movie  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Those in Australia got the chance to see a made-for-TV movie that aired last night titled “Turks”. It appears to have been American-made. The movie follows a character named Sergeant Turk and his son, which is where the title comes from. In one scene, an innocent man is charged with a crime that occured 18 years before. Meanwhile, in the background plays a newly-mixed version of “God Be With You”, the song Dolores originally recorded for “The Devil’s Own” in 1997. I will see if I can find more info about the movie itself — any other info appreciated.

“Live in Paris” Aired Globally

October 6, 2000  |  Comments Off on “Live in Paris” Aired Globally  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Over the past week, several TV stations across the globed have aired the entire unabridged “Live In Paris” (December 9th, 1999) concert that will be released on VHS and DVD. One such station, located in Australia, was Fox8 which ran the 90 minute show on Tuesday. This comes as no surprise, as some stations in Asia were able to broadcast the concert as early as April. In addition, the ending credits served as a major advertising space for the VHS and DVD, informing viewers about its January release. The easy capability of home-recording the show suggests that Image Entertainment is relying heavily especially upon the DVD extras to sell the show.

Exclusive: DVD & VHS Cover, New Info.

October 3, 2000  |  Comments Off on Exclusive: DVD & VHS Cover, New Info.  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The first images of the upcoming DVD and VHS release have been released. Check out these exclusive high-res scans, with some gorgeous Storm Thorgerson art:

Included with these shots are some new info. Unfortunately, the release has been pushed back a week, making the new release date Janurary 2nd, 2001. However, to compensate, there have been even more extras added to the DVD! Including the previously announced stuff (see below), the omake section will include:

-“Technician’s Documentary”, showing all the steps that went into creating the DVD
-“How”, peformed live, 1993

In addition, the “Screensaver” extra announced previously has now been renamed as a “Looping art gallery”. This clarifies it a bit, as it will probably be album art as well as a variety of Thorgerson art from the BTH singles. This should assure people that this is not the “Salvation” screensaver found on the US “When You’re Gone/Free to Decide” single.

Once again I remind webmasters that if they borrow these images, please credit Zombieguide.com — I no longer tag pictures or use scripts, but they can be reinforced if needed. Please, don’t ruin it for everyone.

Coming Soon: Pre-orders for the VHS and DVD at 30% off
