“No Need To Argue” blue vinyl: first images

July 17, 2018  |  Comments Off on “No Need To Argue” blue vinyl: first images  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The first images of the limited edition “No Need To Argue” blue vinyl just appeared on the internet (on eBay). This is a new color made by Runt and now in stock and available on their website for $29.98
Not to be confused with the Clear & Blue version already released a few months ago.

It seems that this version replaces the Pink & Orange one supposed to be released on May 4, 2018 and which never saw the light. Indeed the old Pink & Orange page now displays this Blue vinyl.

A bench in memory of pupil Dolores O’ Riordan

June 7, 2018  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Two days ago the Catholic Voluntary Secondary School for girls Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ based in Limerick published on Facebook a photo of a bench they unveiled last week as a tribute to their former pupil Dolores O’ Riordan.

Our Comhairle na nDaltaí unveiled a bench in memory of our past pupil Dolores O’Riordan last week. It is placed in our 6th year garden with lyrics of her music to provide inspiration for years to come. Míle buíochas for such a beautiful and fitting tribute.

The bench features three lines in Gaeilge and English: a quote from the song “Ordinary Day” along with Dolores O’ Riordan’s name written in Irish as the school is a school where Irish is the medium of instruction.

1971 DOLORES NI RIORDAIN 2018
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF ALONG THE WAY
LIVING THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF YOUR DREAMS

We do not know yet whether the bench is in a private space reserved for students or if it’s accessible to all who’d like to come and visit. A great tribute, for sure!

The lads back in studio to record next Cranberries album

April 17, 2018  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries are in studio this week to record the next (and possibly final?) Cranberries album. These last 24 hours, they published a few photos on their Instagram account:

    “So we start the album”

    Mike

    “Back in the studio” – (Noel with a new tattoo)

    “Day 2 of recording”

Let’s note the band was in studio last week as well (or maybe just Noel?), at the famous Abbey Road studios in London, to remaster the “Everybody Else…” album for the 25th Anniversary edition that should be released later this year.

This week, the three of them gathered at Kore Studios, in London too, to record a brand new Cranberries album. For those who are wondering how they’ll be dealing with vocals without Dolores, please keep in mind the last interview Noel Hogan gave to RollingStone: “I spoke to Dolores last Friday and she was great. We spoke about getting back to work – recording and new tracks we were working on. She sent some of those tracks to me by email on Sunday morning”, as well as the band’s recent statement: “we will also be completing the recording of a new studio album as previously announced, which we also started last year and for which Dolores had already recorded the vocals.

Everyone can easily imagine how painful going through these tracks must be for the lads. Like many fans who are supporting them through social media, we’re sending love and courage to Noel, Mike and Fergal.

We love you guys, In It Together!

Possibly the earliest The Cranberry Saw Us photo ever! (UPDATED)

April 14, 2018  |  Comments Off on Possibly the earliest The Cranberry Saw Us photo ever! (UPDATED)  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

*****VERY RARE*****
Do you recognize those teenagers, how old were they?
Do the math, this photo of the foursome The Cranberry Saw Us was published on 27 January 1990 in a local newspaper called “Limerick Tribune” along with a review of their very first demo cassette, “Anything”.
The singer at the time was Niall Quinn, he is on the very left and you probably know the names of the others. One of the earliest photos of the band ever… if not the earliest(?)

Niall Quinn (16), Mike Hogan (16), Fergal Lawler (18), Noel Hogan (just turned 18)

The complete Limerick Tribune article is available on the magazine section or directly by clicking here. This is the earliest article about The Cranberry Saw Us known to this day.

Thanks to Sue for this gem!


UPDATE – APRIL 15

Niall Quinn posted on Twitter a few more details about this photoshoot, the only one The Cranberry Saw Us (with him as singer) did:

What songs for Everybody Else’s 25th Anniversary album?

April 12, 2018  |  16 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

As you may have already seen on socials, earlier today The Cranberries posted a video and a photo on Instagram from the famous Abbey Road Studios in London where they are currently remastering “Everybody Else…” for the album’s 25th anniversary.

As a reminder the classic album counts 12 tracks:

1.  I Still Do
2.  Dreams
3.  Sunday
4.  Pretty
5.  Waltzing Back
6.  Not Sorry
7.  Linger
8.  Wanted
9.  Still Can’t…
10. I Will Always
11. How
12. Put Me Down

and the “Complete Sessions” album released in 2002 added 6 more tracks:

13.   Reason
14.   Them
15.   What You Were
16.   Liar
17.   Pretty (Prêt-à-Porter Movie Remix)
18.   How (Radical Mix)

Let’s note the band earlier mentioned they would be including some unreleased tracks and other bonus material from the era on this anniversary edition of the album. The fans already know of 5 unreleased songs from this period, thanks to bootleg recordings, as some of these were played a few times live in concert in the early years:

ATOSA
FALSE
LIKE YOU USED TO
SAME OLD STORY
SERIOUS

The question is… have all these songs been recorded in studio back then?
And what about some more unknown songs we would never have heard about, is there at least one or two somewhere?
Could the 25th Anniversary Album be an ultimate double CD/LP including all those 23 or more songs?
Time will tell… but today, the remastering has just started and it’s a bit of a nice news at this difficult time!

Dolores O’ Riordan voicemail audio – 15 Jan. 2018 1:12 AM (GMT)

April 5, 2018  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

TMZ published on their website and YouTube a voicemail audio message Dolores left for label executive Dan Waite on 15 January 2018 at 1:12 AM (GMT) to let him know how Bad Wolves version of Zombie “sounds fucking terribly good“.

Everyone knows TMZ and the sensationalism side, that’s why they’re surfacing this and writing “The Final Voicemail”. The final voicemail, this we can’t really know but for sure some of the very last words said by Dolores just a few hours before she was found dead. Very moving or very disrespectful, up to you!

2 more NNTA colored vinyl reissues: “White” and “Pink & Orange”

April 1, 2018  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The series will never stop!!!
The album “No Need To Argue” will be reissued on colored vinyl again and again. Two more colors are coming: “White” and “Pink & Orange”. One color really makes sense and one really doesn’t…

Still made by the label Plain, both versions will be released on 4 May 2018 and do not seem to be limited. A possible oversight (?) as all previous NNTA colored vinyl reissues were limited.

Click here to preorder the White version.
Click here to preorder the Pink & Orange version.

As usual on runtshop.com, price is $29.98 (each) including shipping for USA. Worldwide shipping is available for a few extra dollars.

Beautiful tribute to Dolores O’ Riordan in Limerick tonight. “Zombie” blasted out as first tune after fireworks and Dolores’s image projected on King John’s Castle in the heart of medieval Limerick City. For sure a great way to end Saint Patrick’s weekend.

“Gold” NNTA vinyl reissue + “Clear Blue” & “Clear Pink” in stock

March 16, 2018  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

And here comes another colored vinyl reissue of the album “No Need To Argue”. This time GOLD. It’s a “Urban Outfitters” exclusive and available on their U.S. and Canadian stores only.
The vinyl will be released on March 30, 2018 and you can already preorder it for $29.90 + shipping.

No official details about the label for now however, according to an eBay seller, the item would be limited to 1,500 and made by Plain Recordings, the label who already released 7 other colored vinyls of this very album.

NNTA gold vinyl

Still about Urban Outfitters, the shop, which is more like a fashion & clothing store than a record store, is also selling another (and exclusive?) version of The Cranberries debut album on vinyl. Still their U.S. and Canadian stores only.
Weirdly enough, their title and description are announcing the regular 12-track album when their photo shows the “Complete Sessions” version, which would be a first on vinyl. So where’s the mistake… time will tell! Release date is April 3, 2018 and you can already preorder it for $29.98 + shipping.

[EDIT APRIL 4th: this is not the complete sessions, just the regular Analog Spark vinyl.]

EEIDISWCW – The Complete Sessions on vinyl (?)

And last, earlier than expected the vinyl reissues “Clear Blue” and “Clear Pink” by Plain Recordings are now in stock (possibly for a week now) and first customers are receiving their copies these days. Below the first images found on eBay  for the Clear & Pink LP

The Cranberries interviewed in June 2017 for Polish TV

March 9, 2018  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

You may remember the behind the scenes photo posted on Instagram on July 21, 2017 by Polish journalist Piotr Pasztaleniec. He also wrote “I finally met Dolores, soon in tv…” but we have had no news since!

It seems, though, that the interview was indeed broadcast on Polish TV, on TVP2. We have no details about the exact date of broadcast nor the name of the TV show, the only thing we know is the interview was given in June 2017.

Fortunately, we found out today that the interview was published 2 days following Dolores’ passing on the website pytanienasniadanie.tvp.pl, and in HD 1080!

This event will be a celebration of diversity, women, the LGBTQ community and Irish music at its very best.

Tickets for this event are set to cost only €12 with all profits going to ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services and Limerick Mental Health Association

“No Need To Argue” purple vinyl reissue, first images

March 2, 2018  |  Comments Off on “No Need To Argue” purple vinyl reissue, first images  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The limited “No Need To Argue” purple vinyl reissue has been released and shipped last week. Some customers just received their copy and first images appeared on the internet, for example on eBay or Instagram. Let’s note that all those colored vinyl reissues are making debat regarding the sound quality. Here is what Instagram user neemus says about this purple LP:

[…] And even though I should’ve known better, even though PLAIN’s reputation is real, I went and ordered it. *Sigh* This thing sounds awful. Terrible. So compressed and lifeless, mp3 sounds better. Zombie has that fantastic bass line and unfortunately you can’t even enjoy it. They went straight from CD without even bothering to tweak the mix, yet again. FAIL
