“Analyse” Mexican promo CD

August 20, 2001  |  Comments Off on “Analyse” Mexican promo CD  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Mexico has received their promo edition of “Analyse”. The art is similar to the international release, except that it comes in a slimline case in contrast to the American jewel case. The disc art is also quite different, with the shot of the band instead of the bland blue US disc. The Mexican release contains the same tracks as the US release, the radio edit and album versions.

Boulder gig review

August 20, 2001  |  Comments Off on Boulder gig review  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Colorado-based website Gavin has posted a short but interesting review of The Cranberries private Boulder gig last week. Here’s what they had to say…

The headliner for the evening was The Cranberries, who after selling millions upon millions of albums in the early and mid-’90s, are returning to the scene with their MCA debut Wake Up and Smell the Coffee. But that fact didn’t stop the diminutive Dolores O’ Riordan and her mates from going back to the well for a series of crowd-favorite radio smashes. One burly gentleman in the crowd forced his way to the front of the room excusing himself as he went along by saying, “Excuse me but this is a religious experience for me, you don’t understand.”

First Roxy gig details, setlist

August 19, 2001  |  Comments Off on First Roxy gig details, setlist  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

This past Tuesday, The Cranberries performed at Los Angeles’s The Roxy, their first public performance since last November. We now have first details from the show, including an incomplete setlist.

The first part of the show was:

1. Zombie
2. Analyse
3. Time is Ticking Out
4. Free To Decide
5. Linger
6. Animal Instinct
7. Never Grow Old
8. When You’re Gone
9. Dreams
10. Promises

However, after the first ten songs (done semi-acoustically), the band returned a short time later with a short encore of new songs. We do not yet have the listing of these, but perhaps we’ll have them shortly.

Before playing the new track “Never Grow Old”, Dolores explained that she wrote it after the birth of her second child Molly, now six months old. Also noteworthy is that Noel was absent for the concert. Backup guitarist Steve Demarchi took his place.

Look for more on the Roxy show very shortly — an exclusive full-fledged review will soon be available at Zombieguide Concerts!!

Dolores Spotted in Toronto

August 9, 2001  |  Comments Off on Dolores Spotted in Toronto  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Thanks to Zombieguide’s relentless Toronto correspondant Tara, we have a new small but valuable news bit. The Cranberries lead Dolores O’Riordan was spotted last Friday, August 3rd, eating in the Toronto restaurant Jack Astor’s. She was with hubby Don and one kid. Now that the video for “Analyse” was completed last week, it’s possible that the entire band is now in Toronto prepping for the American promo tour later this month. Dolores herself, is of course, no stranger to the area — she’s spent many years living there, and you’ll recall her first son Taylor was born there as well.

New UK Promo CD, New Track Revealed

August 9, 2001  |  Comments Off on New UK Promo CD, New Track Revealed  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Yet another new promo for the new album is out, this time a 5-track sampler released in the UK. The sampler includes a another newly-revealed title, “Every Morning”. The disc and sleeve are very plain, as you can see below. Also given is the time elapsed for each track (“Wake Up” is the longest, reeling it at 5 min, 15 sec).

The five included tracks are:

1. Analyse
2. Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
3. This is the Day
4. Every Morning
5. Carry On

However, almost equally notable as the new title is what can be seen on the sleeve. The very distinctive Island Records logo is located right beside Universal. This raises all sorts of questions, as the band reportedly quietly left Island last fall. Will Island be doing the UK distribution? Or is the logo of no real significance?

The Cranberries to Appear on GetMusic’s E-coustic Sessions

August 6, 2001  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries to Appear on GetMusic’s E-coustic Sessions  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Zombieguide has learned today that The Cranberries will be making an appearance this month on GetMusic.com’s “E-coustic Sessions”. The live Internet show optimizes Real Video to deliver live performances right to the viewer’s desktop. “There’ll be an interview and an acoustic performance of some of the new material,” a representative told the Herald. A date has not been set for the airing of the event however, but readers can check GetMusic’s Event Calendar for all the latest info.

As the show explains, “An acoustic guitar. A spare kit. A little bit of space. On The E-coustic Sessions, the expression “less is more” is taken seriously – it’s the best way to get to the soul of a song and the artist behind it. Let host Nevin Martell take you beyond the megawatt stadium experience as he sits down with some of today’s best up-and-coming talent for in-depth interviews and acoustic performances.”

First Japanese “Wake Up” Bonus Track Info

August 2, 2001  |  Comments Off on First Japanese “Wake Up” Bonus Track Info  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Music importers have begun taking preorders on the Japanese version of “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee”. As per usual, the Japanese edition of the CD (like most albums there) will contain bonus material not found on the North American release. The Japanese “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee” will contain one bonus track for a total of 14 tracks. We don’t have any more specifics yet, but one extra track is a bit scant compared to past offerings. “Bury the Hatchet” included two tracks (“Baby Blues”, “Sorry Son”) and “To the Faithful Departed” included all three B-sides from the album (“Cordell”, “The Picture I View”, “Intermission”).

August 1, 2001  |  Comments Off on Official Site Reveals HTML Page, August Venues  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

The official site has launched their HTML version of the new Thorgerson-designed webpage. The site loads much faster, especially for us poor souls deprived of broadband as of yet.

The site also lists five confirmed venues for the US promo tour this month (!). However, these are “private media showcases” and therefore tickets are not publicly available, with the exception of the Boulder show. However, the page is holding a 30-word essay contest to give away 2 tix and the opportunity to meet the band.

August 14th Los Angeles – Roxy Theater
August 16th Boulder – Fox Theater (Some public tickets available!)
August 18th Chicago – The Double Door
August 20th Minneapolis – Fine Line
August 22nd New York- Bowery Ballroom

Fergal has also updated his section, noting that the band has been practicing for the last several weeks and they plan to do many interviews this month as well. Of course, for all the details, don’t miss the official site.

We have the Portuguese lyrics to “Se a Gente”:

Se a gente se entender

Eu sei
Pode parecer
Que é dificil ver
Uma solução
Parece que o problema
É só mais um dilema
Mais uma confusão
Pra me enloquecer

Eu sei
Não é tão importante
Você também passou
Por isso
Mas essa é minha vida
E nada é igual
O mundo já mudou
E eu mudei também

Será que você
Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Eu sei
Falta tempo agora
Você anda tão distante
Sem hora
Pra ninguém
Quanto mais
Pra mim

Tudo é tão depressa
Correria e pressa
Eu tranco a porta do quarto
Eu não quero ver ninguém
Tou pedindo pra você
Eu preciso de você

Será que você
Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Será que você
Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender
