Koretsky’s new EP “MMXX” out today

July 10, 2020  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Olé Koretsky announced on Twitter and Instagram today the release of his new EP titled “MMXX”.
Stream/download here.

The EP features the track “Heartbreaker” which Cranberries fans are familiar with as Olé used to play it when presenting D.A.R.K. tracks Live PA as opener of The Cranberries on their 2017 tour.

One may thus wonder if the other unreleased tracks Olé played live on this tour will ever be released – and as solo material or D.A.R.K.? Let’s note that some of them featured Dolores’ voice so we could expect them to make it on the second album of D.A.R.K. that was already recorded when Dolores passed away and will hopefully see the light one day.

“MMXX” also includes an interesting cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U”.
Let Olé know what you think of his work!

We’ve sadly just learned of the passing of Denny DeMarchi, who fans of The Cranberries were very familiar with as he used to perform on stage as additional musician with the band on the 2009-2011 Reunion Tour. He also accompanied Dolores in her solo career, contributing to her two solo albums Are You Listening? and No Baggage, and touring with her in 2007.

According to Wikipedia, Denny was born on 28 November 1962, he was 57.

VIDEO: Coronavirus version of “Linger”

March 16, 2020  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Nice and very appropriate video with rewritten lyrics shared on Twitter today by Roisin Ingle:

we wish, wish we could return
wishing never had to learn
words like COVID-19
coronavirus you’re so mean
you are tearing us apart
ruining everything

 

and yet though this time is strange
so much to rearrange
we’ll keep washing our hands
all we can do is stand
together while apart
it’s not a game to us
and we’re in so deep
we sacrifice to keep us safe
social distance in our fingers a-a-ah
we don’t want to let it linger
we don’t want to
we don’t want to
we don’t want to let it linger

 

oh from Wuhan to Milan
something really has gone wrong
we’re singing songs
singing songs

 

if we, if at home we stay
close pubs self isolate
socializing at home
call loved ones on the phone
avert your patrick’s day
it’s a tiny price to pay
and we will prevail
we’ll keep our precious people safe
the strong is standing for the weakest
we can make sure it won’t linger
we have to
we have to
we cannot let it linger

CalenDolores 2020: 2nd version and lower shipping cost

December 16, 2019  |  Comments Off on CalenDolores 2020: 2nd version and lower shipping cost  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Following many complaints regarding the expensive shipping costs for non-US residents of the CalenDolores 2020 available from Etsy (and where you couldn’t even combine shipping when ordering 2 copies or more) theHand made a second version of his calendar available from Lulu where shipping costs are more reasonable.

Pay attention, this is really a second version of the calendar and not the same as Etsy shipped from another seller. There are several differences such as format, materials and number of pages. The price of the calendar is a little more expensive compared to the Etsy version, but if you add shipping it makes a big difference (again for those living outside the US) and combining is possible!

COUPON CODE: ONESHIP (free or reduced shipping costs until December 19th)

NEW COUPON CODE: LULU15 (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd)
NEW COUPON CODE: ONEFIVE (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd – UK & Ireland only)
