The Cranberries videos: comparison and alternative versions

August 1, 2017  |  12 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Great and interesting work done by lipecran concerning 3 (now 6) Cranberries videos. Thanks to him and The Cranberries Brasil.

First the comparison between all 3 versions of “Dreams” on the same screen.
The Cranberries Brasil note: “At the top of the screen, the first version, from 1992. Below, to the left, the second version of 1993, and to the right, the third, filmed between 27 and 29 January 1994 in Dublin, Ireland. Although some other videos of the band also have other versions, dreams is the only one with completely different versions of each other.”

Secondly, in the same style, the comparison between all 3 versions of “Zombie”. Some people only knew the existence of 2!! It seems this one just been censored for copyright reasons…
The Cranberries Brasil note: “On the top of the screen, is the most common version, with the song in full length (“No Need To Argue” album). Under it, at left, the version known as “UK Limited Edition” surfaced in early 2000’s and at right the “Alternate”, released in 2009 at VEVO channel of the band. These other two versions have the same lenght, so at some point, the screen will show only the common version, during the missing sound part of these other versions. The common and Alternate versions are very similar while the “UK” shows a lot of differences.”

And last the complete and quite rare alternative version of “Free To Decide”. Brilliant!

Now the comparison between both versions of “Free To Decide”

…and between both versions of “Ridiculous Thoughts”. Great job guys!

One more, “When You’re Gone”

And last, “I Can’t Be With You” and “Zombie” censored on YouTube and reuploaded on Vimeo.

Erratum re Dolores in Limerick 2000 (=>1999)

July 6, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Erratum concerning the rare black and white photo tagged “Dolores in Limerick 2000” on the website and reported on CW 3 days ago.

A fan just sent us the picture below off a german magazine called “Petra” dated from 1999. Same photo session, almost the same pose. The session then can’t be from the year 2000 and was probably from early 1999.

New video interview with The Cranberries published yesterday on German website
Entitled “The Cranberries’ comeback”, the video is about 2:30 min. long.
It’s a mix between 2 sources, one recorded on May 2, 2017 in Berlin during the first show of the European acoustic tour and the other one recorded during the band’s rehearsals in Limerick at ICO Studio possibly in March 2017. Both sources contain live footage and interview.

Dolores O’Riordan: ‘You have to be strong’. Interview on The Business Post Magazine

June 30, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Sara  |  The Cranberries

Journalist Nadine O’Reagan met the band back in April in a Dublin pub. The interview was then published in the Business Post Magazine issued on May 7th which featured Dolores O’Riordan on the cover (“She’s beautiful, Dolores O’Riordan. Sometimes the cameras don’t capture that. Today, as she sits in the Cobblestone pub in Smithfield in Dublin, the Limerick-born singer looks as dainty as a doll – her skin is porcelain, her close-cropped hair is a shiny black, and her military-style jacket from Marc Jacobs in Brown Thomas is on trend: tough, but also reinforcing her fragility”):

“You have to keep going,” O’Riordan nods. “You just have to be strong. And keep soldiering on. You just can’t lay down and die. There’s light at the end of the tunnel.”

Noel, Dolores, Fergal and Mike sat down to discuss various topics ranging from their early days and sudden fame to hobbies. Here are a few extracts (full interview is avaiable on the Business Post site – subscription required):

About the early days:

“For us, four kids from Limerick, who did a demo, took a chance and posted it to London – for us to get a positive letter, we were ringing each other, going: ‘Oh my God’,” says Lawlor, the gregarious drummer, as he sips a soft drink around the small table in the Cobblestone. “You have that buzz. Geoff [Travis, the founder of Rough Trade Records] was managing us a year later.”

About their relationship:

“We found that, for us, any problems have come from outside influences,” Hogan says, adding that it’s better when he and O’Riordan sit down and “thrash out” issues.

About hobbies:

O’Riordan enjoys swimming and meditating – she’s not into Spotify; she’s not much of a music listener by her own account, but she downloads meditations from iTunes. She travels with a yoga mat, she says, and she’ll meditate every day if the hotel room she’s in has space for her to lay out her mat. I ask her why she likes meditating so much, in particular.

Dolores also gave an insight on her back injury that would later prevent her from completing their summer tour:

“I love to swim (…) the breaststroke and the backstroke. Because I had a herniated disc last year. I had to cancel a couple of festivals. I’m hoping it doesn’t come back to haunt me. If I had this disc out, I’d have to be in a wheelchair, so that would be bad. I also like walking and painting”

The journalist also talks about Something Else defining it “gentle, uplifting and worth hearing”

After the first image of the Analog Spark reissue 3 days ago, here comes the Barnes & Noble version. Below the first image posted on Instagram by abruptmodulation.

This is the translucent red version. There’s no image of the red vinyl itself, hopefully soon!

Concerning the sound inside, it is the same as the Analog Spark one. “turk99”, a user at the “Vinyl Collective” boards, contacted Analog Spark and they confirmed it’s based on their mastering.

“Love Letters From Limerick” featuring a new track by Fergal

June 20, 2017  |  Comments Off on “Love Letters From Limerick” featuring a new track by Fergal  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

“Love Letters from Limerick” is a short film (approximately 4 min. long) which was shown at the LIT presentation last Friday where the “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” giant sign was donated and unveiled. It showcases the creation of this inspiring project.

The film is now available on Vimeo and features a new track by Fergal Lawler simply called “Love Letters”

And as Tom Collins says about the sign: “I love where it is now, it’s on a great blue wall, it looks like a big cloud on a blue wall, it’s a happy cloud”

Everybody Else is Doing It So Why Can’t We?
Texas based sign painter and illustrator Sean Starr collaborated with Limerick sign painter Tom Collins to create a 10ft high 15ft wide hand painted sign placing the title of The Cranberries debut album centre stage on a large cloud. This video showcases the creation of the sign and its installation in a permanent home where it’s elevating message can inspire future generations. Featuring a new track by Fergal Lawler of The Cranberries.
