The BBC 4 is still repeating original Top Of The Pops programmes. After Linger, Dreams and Zombie last year, the episode with “Salvation” first broadcast on 18 April 1996 aired 2 weeks ago.

For UK residents the episode is available another 2 weeks on the BBC iPlayer up to 1080p50. For the rest of the world the performance was shared on YouTube by user TopOfThePopsFan. A great upgrade for many fans!

Chvrches’ Iain Cook remixes “Linger”

July 4, 2024  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Scottish musician Iain Cook, composer, producer, and member of the pop band Chvrches made a remix of “Linger” by deconstructing the original and reassembling it, keeping intact the vocal melody of Dolores.

Officially approved by The Cranberries, Fergal said in a statement posted on the band’s socials (TwitterX, Instagram), “Iain did an outstanding job in remixing Linger. He reimagined the song completely, creating a fresh and upbeat version of this classic”

The remix was released last week on all streaming platforms and YouTube

Fergal has 2 new pedals…..

Well… this may not be the most important news ever for all the Cranberries fans -we are aware of that- but at least we can enjoy a recent photo of our dear Fergal smiling with his new pedals!

For more details, read the post shared yesterday on Instagram by Cranberries fan Tomasz Knapik who built the pedals. “Fergal Lawler Of TC Discusses His Band And Soccer On Curva Mundial Podcast”

“The Curragower Falls” a special piece composed by Fergal (UPDATED)

April 29, 2024  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Last year, the Irish classical music radio station RTÉ lyric fm based in Limerick asked Fergal to compose a short piece to celebrate the station’s 25th anniversary in 2024. After hesitation and fear of not being able to do it, Fergal said yes… and soon after his very first piece for full orchestra “The Curragower Falls” was born (Fergal finished in late 2023).

Note: Curragower Falls is found in the heart of Limerick city under the shadow of King John’s castle. The falls are formed when the river Shannon drops over a rock ledge at the right tide. When the river is high the volume of water and the combination of low tide turn the falls into a freestyle playground. The waves are usually surfable 2 hours before low tide.

According to Fergal’s recent interview published on RTÉ Guide this week, the piece reflects on memories of childhood by the River Shannon, celebrates a city (Limerick) and memories of loved ones, including his father the late Myles Lawler who was a massive fan of classical and opera music, his mother Audrey who passed away at the end of January this year and the late Dolores O’Riordan…

“The Curragower Falls” will be performed on 1 May 2024 at the University Concert Hall in Limerick as part of the radio’s 25th birthday concert. Fergal won’t be performing that day, he was asked to but declined the invitation, hence he can relax, enjoy the show, and hear the piece for the very first time in concert from the audience!

It’s unclear whether the concert will be live or later broadcast on the radio; possibly live as there’s a mention “Listen, Lyric fm, Wednesday” on the top of the page of the RTÉ Guide interview.

EDIT (1st May): The concert is live broadcast tonight (Wednesday) from 7:30pm to 9pm. Listen here.

If you’d like to be part of the audience, more details, tickets, and performing artists on

Special thanks to daffodillament1995 for the RTÉ Guide.

First images RSD2024 – Bury The Hatchet / Are You Listening? (UPDATED 2x)

April 15, 2024  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

The 2 vinyls in real life, still the front covers we already know and no images of the inner discs and inserts yet. Published on Instagram by user @actionrecords and to be released on 20 April 2024.


There are 2 editions (US & EU) of Bury The Hatchet TCS so far. Exact same content.
The US edition has a UMe logo and the New York address. The European edition has a different universal logo and the Netherlands address plus a “made in czech republic” sticker.
Front sticker is almost the same on both editions, just a slightly different catalog number (plus or minus double zero).

First images of the US version were posted yesterday on




Unlike BTH it seems there is only one edition for AYL wherever you are in the world, a MADE IN GERMANY edition.

ITW: Dolores O’Riordan on “The Morning X” – 9 August 1999

March 25, 2024  |  Comments Off on ITW: Dolores O’Riordan on “The Morning X” – 9 August 1999  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A rare interview with Dolores on the radio show “The Morning X” on 9 August 1999 was rebroadcast on the radio recently (22 March) during the “Best of The Morning X” and shared on YouTube by Cumulus Podcasts, the official account of one of the largest podcast networks in America. The podcast is also available directly on the official website (look for March 22 – 18:09).

Description on YouTube mentions, “an interview and performance…” but only the interview (18min long) has resurfaced for now. Let’s hope for the performance to be rebroadcast as well!

March 23, 2024  |  Comments Off on BOOTLEG VIDEO (upgrade): Mark Of The Quad Cities, Moline, 1996  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

An upgrade of the bootleg video recorded on 14 August 1996 in Moline, IL, USA was shared on YouTube yesterday by user George’s Video Library. There is no mention of the video grade anywhere but it looks like a low generation copy…  or even the master tape directly (?)
Definitely a major upgrade for many of us! “The Cranberries Hit Zombie Voted The Greatest Irish Song Ever!”

“Zombie” crowned by the Radio Nova (Irish radio) listeners today… maybe the recent “Six Nations” title won by the national rugby team and the fact that the song has become their unofficial anthem helped a little!

The “East Limerick Gaels Award” honors those who have given lifelong, voluntary and dedicated service to the Limerick GAA over the years. The event was held at the Millennium Centre in Caherconlish (near Limerick) possibly yesterday(?)

There was a special recognition award for the late Dolores O’Riordan for The Cranberries song “Dreams” which has become synonymous with the Limerick Hurlers’ success in recent years and Dolores’ brother Joseph was there to accept the award; see image below… too bad we can’t read the plaque!

Dear Dolores,

6 years today since we embarked on a new journey without you.
Though we may never fully overcome this loss, you and your music will forever remain a driving force, a source of inspiration and hope, an example to follow, enlightening the life of so many of us. We can’t thank you enough for this.

There’s something between us
Words can never say
And only once in a lifetime
Young ones fly away

We love you.

BOOK: “Tout Sur Les Cranberries”

January 8, 2024  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Seriously, who’s that girl? Not Madonna… and not Dolores for sure!
Below the cover of a new book/biography written in French, printed by Amazon (France) and released last month. Price: 11 euro. And yes the book really is about The Cranberries. Well…

CW is trying to let fans know everything about The Cranberries… everything… and this book is no exception so we had to mention it. We also never give our opinion as much as possible but this is a bit too much here and to make it simple: DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

This book, belonging to the “Culture Rock” series on Amazon France, is very possibly another AI shit, both the only one (fake?) photo and the whole text… even if we can’t confirm it. No author credited anywhere which is some kind of proof. Probably AI generated in 30 seconds just to make easy money like they did with many other artists for that series before. SHAME!

“Zombie” part of the “Fortnite Festival” videogame

December 11, 2023  |  Comments Off on “Zombie” part of the “Fortnite Festival” videogame  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The online videogame “Fortnite” by Epic Games has a brand new game mode or place (or island in fact, that’s how the different locations/games seem to be named in the game) featuring The Cranberries. Sorry, we are not experts in that game at all, let’s hope we don’t say too much bullshit 🙂

That new island, just released a couple of days ago, is named “Fortnite Festival” and entering it is like playing games such as “Guitar Hero” or “Rock Band” where you have to play the notes appearing on the screen. Well… pressing the correct buttons in fact, nothing really close to real instruments… everyone knows that right?!

There are different layouts for the different instruments, alongside several difficulty settings, giving lots of replayability, etc…

“Fortnite Festival” has 30+ licensed songs and includes “Zombie” by The Cranberries

The base game “Fortnite” and the brand new one “Fortnite Festival” are available free on different platforms (MacOS, Windows, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, iPadOS) and include in-app/in-game purchases.

Better than words, just have a look at this YouTube video, “Zombie” starts at 4:55:33
