No Need To Argue being reissued on 180g vinyl on July 17th (UPDATED)

April 23, 2015  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Title says it all !
Good news for collectors and people who still don’t have it on vinyl, the masterpiece album of The Cranberries will be reissued on Plain Label on July 17th 2015 and can be pre-ordered online right now for $23.78 on the Runtshop website.

The news directly came from Runtshop’s Facebook last April 9th.
For now The Cranberries or their management made no official statement, so it is too soon to know if the LP will be available anywhere else but according to the Runtshop pre-order page the offer doesn’t look exclusive nor limited edition.

NNTA reissue 2015

This reissue might directly be linked to the partnership recently signed by Dolores and Noel with Warner/Chappell Music as seen in this news. If that is the case we could expect some more reissues like this in the coming months/years. Nice !

Thanks to Pepe Tavini Car Ra on Cranberries Mexico.

The Cranberries #36 in what British people love the most in Ireland

March 10, 2015  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

No, Guinness is not what British people love the most in Ireland, Irish accent is !
Guinness “only” is number 2.


The Cranberries are number 36 which 25 years after their debut is not that bad. By comparison U2 is #16, Sinead O’Connor #17 (both recently released an album) Thin Lizzy #22 and The Pogues #10 amongst many other ultimate Irish legends.


The list of the 50 greatest Irish things was made according to a survey which took into account the opinions of more than 2000 people in the UK.

No doubt most of you readers/fans would have placed The Cranberries as reason #1 to love and visit Ireland. Right?

Your chance to live in a piece of Irish Rock History

December 1, 2014  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Almost 2 years ago the Legendary Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin had issued an appeal to musicians who have worked there to collect their master tapes or else they’ll be destroyed. Amongst them The Cranberries. Most of fans know this is the studio where the band recorded some of their best albums including the debut Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We ?
Until today nobody knows if members of The Cranberries rescued their master tapes or not. Let’s hope yes as these recordings really are MASTERPIECE. You can check here the news written by Luc at the time.

And today we learned in this article that the famous Dublin recording studio is to be sold at auction with a reserve at €170,000 / €200,000.
Wanna live where artists like The Cranberries, U2, The Police and Sting, The Waterboys, Mary Black and many more recorded some of their best songs, today is your chance.

So anyone interested ?

Fanberries just added 2 great rare pictures of our favorite rock stars on his Facebook account.
There is a really old one from June 1st 1991 taken in Cork Ireland at Sir Henry’s which originally appeared online on the ‘s website inside an article about the legendary venue and its memorabilia. It is unclear yet if this show is one of the last under the name The Cranberry Saw Us or one of the first (maybe the first) under the name The Cranberry’s. That’s History. Hope we’ll have more information one day.
