Old treasures to surface thanks to 90s Limerick fan Alan Martin

February 18, 2018  |  15 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Hey everyone,
As some of our team members were travelling to Limerick this week to pay respect at Caherelly graveyard, a month after this still terribly painful loss, we were invited by a 1990s Limerick fan to discover his very unique collection of rarely seen press clippings, videos, concert recordings and other memorabilia dating from the band’s early days.

Alan is willing to share these treasures with the worldwide community, with our help. Therefore, we took pictures of approx 300 old articles, local newspapers, reviews, flyers, posters and magazine ads of early gigs that were performed by the band as they were still called The Cranberry Saw Us or The Cranberry’s. Some of these pictures are photos that none of us have ever seen before.

A small glimpse of Alan’s collection:

   

We have also digitalized two recordings that he made himself from an October 3rd 1991 concert that the band played at The Parkway in Limerick as well as another one from April 15th 1993 at The 2 Mile Inn still in Limerick. Our goal is to make them available online in the upcoming days/weeks for everyone to enjoy. These bootlegs feature precious rarities such as “Iosa”, “Serious” and an alternative lyrics version of “Zombie”.

The Parkway 1991 mastertape

2 Mile Inn 1993 mastertape

As you may imagine, this is going to be a long process for us to sort and upload all this online. We’ll be starting doing so asap but please keep in mind it will likely be a matter of months before the last items can be posted on our website.

Last but not least, to our biggest honor, Alan invited us to watch the full “Uncertain” videoclip that he had recorded on VHS, as well as a rarely seen 1994 Top Of The Pops performance of “Dreams”, and a very exclusive interview of Dolores and Fergal on RTE given on December 19th 1993.
Alan will be working on digitalizing these video recordings in the upcoming weeks/months for everyone’s pleasure.

Full “Uncertain” video – 2:44

Please bear with all of us, as this is all worth the wait.

As for you, dear Alan, we’ll forever be grateful for your contacting us and sharing these special masterpieces with the fan community. You’re very special to be willing to share such a rare and personal, private collection with all of us and on behalf of the entire fan community, we wish to express our deepest appreciation for your generosity.
THANK YOU!!!

Somewhere in between here and heaven: CW’s Remembrance

February 12, 2018  |  15 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Dear fans,
Since January 15, we have continued to research, report, and share news and reactions as the world experiences the disbelief and grief surrounding the tragic death of the woman who meant so much to us all. As we have pursued this behind the scenes work here at Cranberries World, we have done so with broken hearts and an indescribable sorrow. It is in that same sorrow now, that we would like to take a moment to share a message from our team.

Cranberries World has become an international community of individuals who represent all ages, backgrounds, lifestyles and experiences; and our team is comprised in that same kind of diversity. Like all of us here, what we share, within our team, is our admiration, appreciation, respect and love for the music, people, memories, and gifts that came into our lives through Dolores O’ Riordan and an unmatched talent that extended beyond her remarkable voice.

The loss of Dolores has devastated our lives more than words can ever express. As each new day comes and goes, we are tormented by the reality that a day has existed without her presence in this world. Our hearts ache at the memories that come into our minds when we see or remember an old photo. Our worlds shatter as we recall experiences at concerts or conversations that some of us were fortunate enough to have shared with her over the last several decades. Then, of course, there is her music. The sharing of her creativity, talent and beautiful voice is how she introduced us into her world.

Through her art, she expressed so many aspects of life. We appreciate that creating through songwriting is often a painful process, yet she worked through any such pain so that she could not only express herself in ways that she believed in, but also in ways that she hoped that we could relate. And relate, we did, as she connected with us through her music, performances, words and personality. She wrote of emotions that ranged from the philosophical to the lighthearted, and delivered her words in beautiful melodies that she crafted with a special type of artistic talent that the world rarely sees.

We understand that the music will indeed be the legacy that she leaves behind. However, we also acknowledge that in addition to losing an incredibly gifted musician, the world has also lost a beautiful soul. We, as fans, had the benefit of experiencing, firsthand, her generosity and kindness. Fans were regularly treated to her attention, authenticity, and affectionate, loving spirit.
She worked hard to give, and made the connections with her audience through her music strong and sincere. Her success, in that regard, will continue to be a driving force in our lives. This, too, is another aspect of her legacy.

Today, as we approach a month since her passing, we remain grief-stricken and shattered.
Words may still be hard to find, and pain unlikely to ease any time soon, but our deepest thoughts continue to go out to her family, children, relatives, as well as to her band mates.
With broken hearts of our own, we extend our sympathies to everyone who visits with us and want to let you know that we are grateful for your support as we all mourn, together.

We do recognise that Dolores left us with an incredible amount of treasures. From the music to the memories, we have all been forever changed by having had Dolores in our lives.
She had given us hope, and was considered by many of us a guiding light.
While we know that everything has changed now that she is no longer with us, we will do our best in continuing the work of Cranberries World, which we hope will honor her life and career, while pursuing to support Noel, Mike, and Fergal, whom we admire and respect greatly.

We appreciate the community that drives Cranberries World and would like to thank every of you for your participation in building this “Crancyclopedia” of ours, that will keep the memories alive.
For Dolores will forever live in our hearts.

Dolores O’ Riordan reposal at Cross Funeral Home, Ballyneety

January 23, 2018  |  8 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Day 2…

Hundreds of people arrived at Cross’s Funeral Home, Ballyneety, near the star’s Ballybricken home, to pay their respects to the Cranberries lead singer.

The three remaining members of The Cranberries – Mike and Noel Hogan, and Fergal Lawlor – joined O’Riordan’s mother, Eileen, and her five brothers and sister at the funeral home.

The singer’s partner, Ole Koretsky, who also played with O’Riordan in the alt-rock band D.A.R.K., was present.

The singer was laid out in an open coffin with rosary beads around her hands, next to photographs of her meeting the late Pope John Paul II and of her performing with her bandmates.

Family and close friends of Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan accompanied her to her home town church in Co Limerick on Monday night ahead of her funeral.

Candles lit the streets as her coffin was brought to the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken.

Two hearses, one carrying her coffin and another carrying floral tributes, arrived at the church shortly before 9.30pm.

Among the many wreaths was one from Irish pop group The Corrs.

Earlier, hundreds of people had gathered outside Cross’s Funeral Home in Ballyneety where her remains were in repose.

Irish President Michael D Higgins paid his sympathies to the singer’s family and signed a book of condolence.

The coffin of The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan is taken into Saint Ailbe’s Church, Ballybricken, ahead of her funeral on Tuesday.

After signing one of four books of condolences outside the village funeral home, President Higgins spent fifteen minutes inside privately talking to O’Riordan’s loved ones.

Afterwards, paying tribute to the adored songbird, he said: “I think it’s very important to pay tribute to the contribution Dolores made, and I also wanted to meet her mother Eileen and her fabulous huge family of nephews and nieces who were very important to her.”

“It’s so profoundly sad that someone so young is taken from us, but it’s equally important also to pay tribute to (her) work and music. It is also to the incredible credit of all those who have appreciated the music and the songs and the performances and the band, that they have come out in such numbers to make their tribute. It’s so appropriate and it is generous, and I hope that her family will get all the support hey need.”

“Limerick is very very proud of (her). As her teachers have been saying, she was a star that shun bright from the very beginning, and I wish her peace. Our sympathies go out to her mother Eileen and her family.”

Dolores O’ Riordan public reposal at Saint Joseph’s Church

January 22, 2018  |  9 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

We’re lacking words to describe what we wish we had never seen.
Here’s a few articles describing the first day of mourning :

Thousands of people attended the public reposing of rockstar Dolores O’Riordan in her native Limerick on Sunday

The singer – holding a pair of pearl rosary beads – lay in an open coffin inside St Joseph’s Church in the city. […]
In a tribute normally reserved for Presidents, Popes, and heads of State, O’Riordan’s remains lay in an open coffin in a four-hour public reposing at St Joseph’s Church, in the Treaty City.

O’Riordan’s mother Eileen and her six siblings accompanied her dark wooden coffin into St Joseph’s Church, which was decorated with white roses, photographs of the deeply religious star performing on stage, and of her two separate meetings with the late Pope John Paul II at the Vatican.

Bishop of Limerick Brendan Leahy said: “It was very moving to be here, to see the generosity of Dolores’ mother Eileen and other family members, not alone in providing this opportunity ahead of the funeral for the public to pay their respects, but for being there also.”

Link : https://www.rte.ie/news/2018/0121/934847-dolores-o-riordan/

 Bishop Leahy said: “In blessing the remains of Dolores O’Riordan here in St. Joseph’s Church in Limerick today, I am conscious that, while millions across the world have been shocked by the sad news of her death, today is Limerick’s public moment to bid farewell.

“We come to offer a heartfelt greeting to a deeply loved and cherished daughter of Limerick, a talented representative of the potential of Limerick people and a convinced advocate of living life in truth, love and peace.

“As we file pass her coffin, let’s remember God’s love and mercy and pray for her, her family and those she loved and helped in life.

“Dolores appreciated the value of spirituality in our lives. She made her First Communion in this church and was confirmed here. She attended the nearby An Mhodh Scoil (Model School) and Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ school. Her spiritual journey continued in many parts of our world, and yet Dolores remained anchored in Limerick. We can be grateful to Dolores’ family for choosing this beautiful church as a venue for her lying in repose.

“Today as the Limerick people she greatly loved come to pay their respects, let us pray for Dolores: ‘May the angels lead you into paradise; and take you to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem, where there will be no more tears, no more death or pain, for the time of heavenly singing has come’.”

Some of the singer’s greatest hits played out in the church while mourners, stood in silence and remembered her in their own personal way.

Others, who were inconsolable in their grief, wept and hugged one another

A floral tribute left next to the singer’s coffin, from her Cranberries bandmates – brothers Noel and Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawlor – read: “The song has ended, but the memories linger on.”

Her voice filled the building, her band’s songs softly playing in the background throughout the service, as a floral tribute beside the open coffin read: “The song has ended, but the memories linger on.” Along the walls, photos of O’Riordan were placed, including one of the singer posing with the Pope. Four books of condolence were also open for mourners to sign.

LAID out in an open casket with the motif of Our Lady at the Foot of the Cross carved into the oak at either end, a set of pearl rosary beads are threaded through the fingers of iconic rock star Dolores O’Riordan as she lies in repose at St Joseph’s Church in Limerick city this Sunday.

The body of the 46-year-old mother-of-three arrived in a hearse at the church on O’Connell Avenue at 12.10 under grey clouds.

“It’s very sad. The coffin is open – I’m not sure if people were expecting that and she looks so tiny – very peaceful, at rest,” comments Sheila Deegan, ‎Arts and Culture Officer, ‎Limerick City and County Council, on the steps of the church.

Undertakers from Cross’s Funeral Home stand vigil around red ropes which keep mourners a respectful distance from the remains of the global superstar who hailed from the small townland of Ballybricken.

Even death can’t dim the superstar quality of Dolores. A black glittery top peeps out from behind the frills of the casket’s shroud. Dark eyeshadow matches her raven hair. In front of the altar mourners bow their heads. Some say a prayer, some beat their breast, many a tear is shed.

Her coffin was carried inside accompanied by her mother and family members.

Friends and relatives carried white roses as they entered the Church.

At 1pm her mother Eileen and her six siblings left the church after spending an hour with mourners.

Mourners said silent prayers in front of the open coffin, with many shedding tears as they said their goodbyes. Others visibly broke down as the left the church.

Mourners from all over the world also gathered to pay their respects.

The statement also reveals that “Dolores was in London working on a mixing session with Martin Glover / “Youth” for the follow-up to Science Agrees which hopes to see a future release as that would have been Dolores’ wish.”

“In Your Head” by Eminem

December 15, 2017  |  Comments Off on “In Your Head” by Eminem  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Eminem released today a new album called “Revival” which includes a track called “In Your Head”. Yes it is about “Zombie”. Not really a cover but a (rap) song that samples Zombie’s chorus and guitar.

Usually we never talk about cover songs/bands but as Eminem is quite famous and as The Cranberries even shared the news on their socials, this one is an exception.
Well… to be honest we should make no exception and no difference between famous and anonymous people but that’s the way it is. At least the man allows The Cranberries to be recalled to a larger and different audience and that’s always a good thing.

Talking about the song well… no comment!

“In Your Head” is track #17

“Xiaoshuo” behind the scenes photos

More details about the Chinese show “Xiaoshuo” with Gao Xiaosong. First the show is broadcast on the internet exclusively not on Chinese TV. This is an important detail, however it is followed by more than 2 million people.
As reported previously the team of the show went to Ireland and among many other things met Dolores and Noel in Limerick. We now have the exact date, September 3, 2017 and some behind the scenes photos.
Thanks to Alex Verveboy on Facebook group “Doors and windows – FANS – THE CRANBERRIES“.

Dolores and Noel on Chinese TV (2017)

October 23, 2017  |  Comments Off on Dolores and Noel on Chinese TV (2017)  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

An article entitled “Chinese tourists drawn to Ireland … by whiskey, hurling and The Cranberries” published today by sino.co.uk reveals that the host of “Youku TV show Morning Call” (晓说 ‘Xiao shuo in Chinese), Gao Xiaosong, went to Ireland last month and had the opportunity to meet Dolores and Noel in Limerick. The article includes a photo of the interview, so this is the most recent image of Dolores to this day.


sino.co.uk

Click here to watch the video. Dolores and Noel mostly appear in the last 4 minutes of the report. Unfortunately it is impossible to clearly hear what they say as the host speaks Chinese all the time. There’s also live footage of The Cranberries but nothing really new, images come from the show at Festi’neuch in Neuchâtel, Switzerland in 2016.
Thanks to Dolores O’Riordan Spain on Facebook for the link.

Noel and Dolores with Chinese TV host Gao Xiaosong

It seems that a large campaign started these days in China (well, at least on the “Morning Call” show) to promote Ireland as a must-see tourist destination. Last week The Irish Times already revealed most of the info in an article entitled “Pubs, hurling and the Cranberries used to lure Chinese here“.

2 blockbuster trailers featuring the same cover of “Zombie”

October 15, 2017  |  Comments Off on 2 blockbuster trailers featuring the same cover of “Zombie”  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The artist Oumi Kapila just released a cover version of “Zombie”. We usually never report about cover songs/cover bands as there are too many each week and most of the time they are not very good or/nor interesting. Today is an exception as first, there is no big news these days in the Cranberries world, and secondly this cover song appears in 2 blockbuster trailers this month. Not that bad!

1st trailer is for the Xbox videogame “Middle Earth – Shadow of War” whose the whole soundtrack features Oumi Kapila’s version:

“Shadow of War” – Xbox – Trailer

2nd trailer is for the next season of “The X-Files” where Oumi Kapila’s version is just a part of the soundtrack among other music and dialogs:

“The X-Files” – Season 11 – Trailer

Below the full song by Oumi Kapila:

The question could be, why don’t all those blockbusters use the original Cranberries song… but that’s another story!

Thanks to Mark for the info.

Rare small advert for a “The Cranberry Saw Us” show (UPDATED)

October 1, 2017  |  Comments Off on Rare small advert for a “The Cranberry Saw Us” show (UPDATED)  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Oldies but goldies!
Below a rare early years concert advert for a venue called The Speakeasy in Limerick, Ireland and published on November 3, 1990 in the Limerick Leader, a local newspaper.

Among other bands: A Touch Of Oliver plus The Cranberry Saw Us

It was the good old days when The Cranberries were called The Cranberry Saw Us and one of the very first shows with Dolores on vocals and not anymore Niall Quinn, the band’s very first singer.

Advert for The Speakeasy

Quite a rare and 3rd advert concerning this show as usually most of the people and fans (including us) only know the existence of these following 2 adverts:

Flyer (Notice The Speakeasy mispelled)

Another newspaper ad

Many thanks to S.


UPDATE:
Another advert, another artwork, a 4th version for The Cranberry Saw Us concert at The Speakeasy. This small advert was published page 36 the day of the show (November 10, 1990) still in the local newspaper, Limerick Leader. Also to notice in this edition, an article page 29 to promote the show and featuring pictures of both bands that night… this article is quite known by the fans already.
