The Icicle Melts

NOTES

  • Show hosted by Bernard Lenoir.
  • Black Session #27.
  • The very first appearance of The Cranberries in Paris.
  • The earliest professionally recorded version of “Zombie” known to this day (there is an earlier version recorded a couple of weeks before at Two Mile Inn in Limerick, but is an audience recording).
  • The show includes other early versions of the songs “The Icicle Melts” and “I Can’t Be With You”.
  • “I Can’t Be With You” was still untitled at that time and was simply identified as “New Song”.
  • There’s also a live acoustic version of rare track “False”.
  • “The Black Sessions” was the name of the concert part of the radio show “C’est Lenoir” where bands performed live on-air in front of an audience. Sometimes the show aired pre-recorded performances with no audience, in that case it was called “The White Sessions”.
  • “C’est Lenoir” was broadcast on France Inter from 1990 to 2011, from 9pm to 10pm originally then from 10pm to 11pm after 2007.
  • There was not a concert on every “C’est Lenoir” show. The very first “The Black Sessions” performance was in February 1992 and the very last in June 2011.
  • Above photos of the venue (both outside and inside) were not taken during The Cranberries show.
