MXPX Song about Dolores?

March 1, 2000  |  Comments Off on MXPX Song about Dolores?  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

I stumbled across this this morning thanks to my brother (a big punk fan)… Appearently, there is a song on the MXPX album, “Teenage Politics” that bears some uncanny references to the Cranberries. The song is called “Delores”. Check out the album cover and lyrics…

“Delores”

My girl hates the IRA
it’s true she just a Fantasy
Don’t know her she don’t know me
We’d make the perfect memory
Nothing in this world could be better
than falling in love with her
she’d write me the most beautiful of songs

1, 2, 3, Go! Go! Go! Go!

“Hates the IRA”? “She’d write the most beautiful of songs”? Coincidence? Make your own decision…

EPOK Article

February 4, 2000  |  Comments Off on EPOK Article  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Apparently, quite a few people thought the recent French EPOK article was one of the best they’ve read in years, so here’s some highlights for you:

“She was interviewed in Epok, a French zine and the article was really interesting as she [Dolores] stated that she did not like at all who she was before (during the EEIDSWCW period), and that she would never again write songs such as Zombie, because of the political issues when you wrote such engaged rock…quite surprising though. I will definitely post the whole French article there soon, as it made me thought of all the opinions that were posted a month ago about what this list members think of ‘Berries music and how it evolved. The original ‘Berries spirit is definitely lost, I guess so, as Dolores clearly stated she would never write again the same love songs she used to.
In this very interview (I’ll send it tomorow), she said that she feels like playing in a movie in the future: “It would be fun”. But, she also said that she will work on the next album. Nevertheless she says too that she hates some love songs she wrote earlier, because she has now found true love, and she consideris she did not know what she was speaking about when writing these songs.”

Thanks to Francois Gibello for the article highlights.

New Song?

February 1, 2000  |  Comments Off on New Song?  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The Waltzing Back Website brings word of perhaps a new Cranberries song from the next album. The song is supposedly titled “Cruel Summer”, and was heard by attendees of the Europe Loud and Clear Tour during the sound checks. Bands usually tinker around with new songs during sound checks, so there may be truth to this rumor.

(written by Dolores, Dec 1999)

Hello there all ye Cranberry heads!

I would just like to thank all you guys for your loyalty and support on our “Loud & Clear” tour.

The American leg was quite good, but Europe blew me away. Just some amazing receptions. I was totally impressed. I loved Spain, Italy, France, etc.

Noel is a dad now and Ferg is expecting in the next month or so. They will busy for a while.

We are going to rehearse and write the 5th album. We won’t record it until August and will do some festivals during the year. Our first is in April in Spain at Esparrago 2000 – So we are going to do ass kicking again – Oh I love Rock n’ Roll.

Hope to see you later this year and hope you had a great Millennium and Xmas!

Lot’s of love,

Dolores x”
