Dublin setlist, new song clips !

November 17, 2000  |  Comments Off on Dublin setlist, new song clips !  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

An Ireland Corner has gotten ahold of a recording of the Dublin show from Saturday and has been gracious enough to post some clips of the two new songs!
Here is the setlist from the show, as well as the new MP3 clips.

1. Time is Ticking Out (MP3, 59 sec, 232k)
2. Linger
3. In the Ghetto (Elvis Cover)
4. Ode to My Family
5. Shattered
6. Animal Instinct
7. Loud and Clear
8. I Can’t Be with You
9. Analyze (MP3, 31 sec, 124k)

Quality is not top-notch, as it appears to be taken from the webcast. However, no doubt a bootleg of the show will begin spreading quickly among traders. In the meantime, enjoy this first glimpse at the new album!

Although they decided not to make the webcast a universal privilage, E- Merge has posted some shots of the show, and even those take some serious searching of the site to find. Thanks to Norbert Brühn of Zombieguide Germany for finding them.

How Not to Do a Webcast

November 11, 2000  |  Comments Off on How Not to Do a Webcast  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

I must give my sincere applause to E-Merge for showing us today how not to do a webcast. As nearly anyone who tried to access the site today found, those interested in watching the broadcast had to fall into three strict categories:

-A resident of Ireland
-Owner of a cell phone
-Agree to use E-Merge’s services

As if the show wasn’t hard enough to get into, you had to be one of the “privilaged” to view the live shots. Very few people at all fall into this, and so it is clear that Ericsson was using this to gain profit rather than for good publicity. Perhaps they will be posting clips up later, but it appears doubtful.

-“Analyze”
-“Time is Ticking Out”

We now have new photos of Dolores and the rest of the band taken from yesterday’s Press Conference in Dublin, Ireland. We can see that Dolores has returned to the long blonde hair look of the early BTH era (wohoo!). No specific details yet of any info given out at the conference, but The Herald will keep you informed.

Chat Results

November 10, 2000  |  Comments Off on Chat Results  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries participated in an online chat eariler today in Dublin, thier first interview in several months. Eager fans were told of more scraps of detail of both the forthcoming 5th album as well as the Dublin show tomorrow night. Those lucky enough to attend can not only look forward to older songs, but also:

-A cover of Elvis’s “In the Ghetto”
-2 New Songs (!)

The band performed the cover only once before for BBC’s Radio One early last year. Neither “False” nor any of the “Uncertain” tracks will be any of the older unreleased songs on the new album. The band would not reveal any of the titles of the new songs, but they did comment that the themes and styles are a mix of all the previous albums, and so far have no definite theme. The band claims that the upcoming DVD “Beneath the Skin” will have a function that will allow it to play on a normal CD player — I’ll have to see that one before I take their word for it. And lastly, the album following the new one will be a Greatest Hits album. Perhaps they will revive the cancelled “Odd Bits and Hits” from 1998? For a full transcript of the chat, click here.

The Cranberries were featured on CNN’s World Beat on Sunday, as the show had a special about the current pop scene in Ireland.

Official Page Ticket Contest

November 6, 2000  |  Comments Off on Official Page Ticket Contest  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

If you live close to Dublin, check out the official homepage’s current contest for tickets to Saturday’s gig. The contest requires a bit of creativity, as fans are asked to create a story, poem, etc. about the band. Winners will be notified on Friday, so you’d better have a clear schedule as there isn’t much notice. If you don’t get the tickets, you can also win some Ericsson products, or — even better (in my view) — a pre-release copy of “Beneath the Skin”!!
