Earlier today on the British TV station CD:UK, The Cranberries made their first public performance of a live version of “Analyse: The Oceanic Remix”. The performance was broadcasted live (not pre-recorded). Five people were on stage, including Dolores (without an instrument), Noel on guitar, Russel Burton on keyboards, Fergal on drums, and Declan Hogan, who substituted for Mike on bass. For those unfamiliar with the name, Declan was featured on the “Technician’s Documentary” on the DVD “Beneath the Skin”. Backing vocalist Steve DeMarchi was not present. However, only Dolores’s vocals were live — the remixed backing track was pre-recorded. Because it was broadcasted live, Dolores’s vocals were “slightly wobbly” at first, but picked up soon.
And, in the event that Joan Rivers is reading this, Dolores wore a long white dress with leopard print stilletos. The performance was one of the band’s first appearances on British TV since April 1999’s TOTP performance.
For those in the UK, remember the Top of the Pops performance is currently due to air on Friday, 26th October 2001 on BBC1, at 7:30 pm. Thanks to Daniel Robert James Steward for the info — be sure to check out his page, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee Unofficial Fansite.
