“Like A Puppet Show” vinyl featuring Dolores O’ Riordan to be released Nov.27

September 18, 2015  |  12 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Eric Alexandrakis just revealed today via his Twitter and Facebook accounts the release of “Like A Puppet Show”, a brand new project in collaboration with the actor John Malkovich and featuring a lot of artists such as Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, OMD, Efterklang, Placebo, The Dandy Warhols, Blondie’s Chris Stein, The Cranberries’ Dolores O’ Riordan and more.

cddaefdd It’s a 11-track vinyl and it will be out for the next record store day/Black Friday event on November 27 followed by two more releases to retailers and direct to consumers via the web for the Christmas holidays and “won’t be available on iTunes” said Eric Alexandrakis yesterday on twitter!
Considered by Eric as “Super cool, and never been done before in such a way” the project is offically described as various remixes of John Malkovich reading an interpretation of Plato.
Sounds kinda weird at first!
Concerning Dolores she ‘s done the last track called “Cryopian D (Mixed by Dolores O’Riordan)”. For now it’s probably too early to know exactly what it is but if it’s in the same spirit as the track called “Cryoblue Cheese Ο (Mixed by Ric Ocasek)” that you can listen on the Pitchfork’s page, there are very few chances to hear our favorite rock star singing (or maybe just a little?!) on the “track” or “reading track”, “remix”, “interpretation”, “effort” or whatever it is.

A lot of Dolores fans will/might be disappointed to learn about this project as most were expecting the release of the “Electrons” LP where she is supposed to sing at least on one track. The fault is probably Eric’s who during the past 16 months was quite active on social networks and posted a few teasers that CW always tried to relay and among them, musical excerpts (instrumental only) and a partial visual of the possible LP with Dolores:

These last days things became very serious. On September 14, Eric Alexandrakis posted a message:
“Get ready steady for a cool announcement on 9/17”.

Then the Spanish fansite DO’RSpain asked a question in a very smart way:
“Hmmm… as cool as the weather in Ireland?”

At this point if you follow Eric on the internet you probably know he is a nice guy and most of the time replies to people. So the question got a reply:
“Cooler…with a touch of Ireland”

As this answer exactly matched to that was known of the Electrons project, fans from the 4 corners of the globe quite immediately concluded it would be the announcement of this very LP and thought the release day was close.

On September 17 and a few hours before the supposed announcement Eric was… let’s say playing with fans (some said torturing) posting a countdown:
“..4……….3………..2……….1………..”

and even:
“…..1/2….”

To finally reply to fans who were saying Come on Eric it’s time now. It is Sept 17. Please tell us. Etc… :
“We’ve delayed it a day just to keep the torture going:)”

For sure an answer quite familiar to all The Cranberries/Dolores O’Riordan fans!
Then Eric edited his original message on Facebook into:
“Get ready steady for a cool announcement on 9/18”

and continued to reply to questions the whole evening / night assuring it was worth the wait:
“Let’s hear what you all think it entails. You’ll either be elated, or terribly disappointed.”
“It’s super cool, and never been done before in such a way.”
“It’s F*CKING AWESOME”

Today, September 18, the wait is over and it is not the Electrons LP. Instead, a John Malkovitch and collaborators project that nobody could have ever imagined. What will be Dolores’ fans reactions, will “Like A Puppet Show” be interesting, good, bad, sucks, anybody will debate about that now and will definitely know on November 27 when the LP is out but one thing is for sure “Never been done before”.

Like a Puppet Show:

01 Cryolife 7:14 A.M. (Mixed by Yoko Ono & Sean Lennon)
02 Cryocarbon 14C (Mixed by OMD)
03 Cryoblue Cheese Ο (Mixed by Ric Ocasek)
04 CryoZolon X (Mixed by Dweezil Zappa)
05 Cryoparoxsym A (Mixed by Young the Giant)
06 Platogenia X And The Caves (Mixed by the Dandy Warhols)
07 Cryostat Ø (Mixed by Efterklang)
08 Cryoplacebo 47/XXY (Mixed by Placebo)
09 Photogenia C (Ruler Of Light) (Mixed by Chris Stein)
10 Optimogenia Z [Edit Mix] (Mixed by Harry Waters)
11 Cryopian D (Mixed by Dolores O’Riordan)

Trial over alleged air-rage adjourned as Dolores is receiving medical treatment

September 2, 2015  |  Comments Off on Trial over alleged air-rage adjourned as Dolores is receiving medical treatment  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Again the information come from The Irish Times first. Their article reveals Dolores is receiving medical treatment these days and can’t come to the Court.
The case will be back before Ennis District Court on December 16th for a plea to be entered or a date for a hearing to be set, the court was told.

My client is presently [sic] receiving ongoing medical treatment and presently she’s receiving residential treatment, hence her absence from court”

 

If the person is having treatment then I think we should facilitate that. Judge Patrick Durcan agreed to the adjournment.

Court dispute between Noel and Dolores has ended (UPDATED)

August 30, 2015  |  Comments Off on Court dispute between Noel and Dolores has ended (UPDATED)  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

According to High Court records the dispute between Noel and Dolores has ended and a motion to strike out the case was finalised this august. (apparently it was in July, see update below)

An article published today in the newspaper The Irish Mail just revealed it. The legal action was initiated by Dolores against Noel in 2013 and it has never been clear what the dispute was about and don’t expect to learn more with this short article.
Anyway, that’s good news!!

Thanks to Sara from Cranberries Italia for finding the article

UPDATE AUG.31

A new article published on August 31st in the Limerick Leader gives more details :

 A high court action taken by Ms O’Riordan against band mate and song writing partner Noel Hogan, has been struck out. The high court proceedings were filed in October 2013, with the Cause of Action in the filing listed as a ‘declaration’. A motion to strike out the action was made on July 13 of this year, and was finalised three days later. The matter, which neither Cranberries star has ever publicly commented on, was adjourned nine times this year when it came before the court, before the motions were made to strike it out in July.

The Cranberries really are wild young things!

She has the voice of a saint stuck in a glass harp while being pelted with ice cubes by vicious clangers.


Their shyness is not only painful, but infectious too.


(…) it’s even more embarassing to watch because they’re so shamingly perfect!


These are the most beautiful high notes you’ll ever get to hear outside of La Scala

 

Those words belong to Sally Margaret Joy and were published in the Melody Maker on July 13th 1991. She went to see The Cranberries live in concert in a pub called The Old Trout in Windsor (UK) on June 29th 1991 and her concert review is one of the earliest if not the earliest review known to this day.

2015.07.20 The Old Trout logo
It may be very possible to find a few earlier articles/reviews inside rare local newspapers or fanzines (and if you know or have one please let us know) but her article might definitely be one of the very first if not the very first about The Cranberries published in a mainstream musical media.
And not bad for a first!

Brand new interview of The Cranberries

July 15, 2015  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday and totally out of the blue appeared on the internet a brand new 27 minutes audio interview of The Cranberries minus Dolores. The weekly podcast is called “Coffee with a sign painter” and usually takes place in Starr Studios in Texas but this time it was recorded in Limerick Ireland. The exact recording date is not yet known but it sure is quite recent, “a few days ago” according to Noel Hogan’s Tumblr account. Host Sean Starr talks with Noel, Mike and Fergal about The Cranberries, the influence of Morrissey and The Smiths, the music industry, Limerick, family, life in the 80’s, not jamming together for fun on their time off, Sign Painting and the upcoming screening of the film Sign Painters at the Elemental Arts Festival in Limerick this coming September.

2015.07.14-starrstudiostx3

But the most important thing for any fans concerns the future plans/music of the band and it comes from Noel around minute 23:

I think if we decided we were gonna do it like we did a few years ago around 2009, when we went back again you know, when we get back into it, it suddenly consumes everything again. You’re doing it, you’re away all the time and you are writing and you’re in the studio and we completely focus on that then when we get back into it.
So if it’s something we do again, and I’m sure we probably will, we’ll lead it at a time when we can all focus on that and not have kind of other things going on at the same time, because as I say, it’s such a big thing when we take off that you have to kind of commit 3 years of your life really to the thing. Cause sometimes you kinda tour short, you don’t go to one territory and next you get these fans that are seriously pissed off with you so you kinda have to keep everybody happy, that’s why it takes so long then.

So, will there be new music of The Cranberries? Will there be concerts again? No one can really tell for now but at least it doesn’t look impossible and that’s pretty good news!

Also posted on the Instagram account of starrstudiostx a selfie with the band made at the show by a kid named Seth Collins. Fun!

“Linger” – Framed and numbered “Soundwave Poster”

June 26, 2015  |  Comments Off on “Linger” – Framed and numbered “Soundwave Poster”  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Remember Concert Live?
Those who recorded a few concerts of The Cranberries in 2010 and 2012 and sold the CD’s at the end of the show directly at the venue. Today they are releasing a limited edition soundwave poster of the legendary track “Linger” framed and numbered 1-25

Any of you hear about a soundwave poster before? Probably not… Well it simply represents a graphic sound wave such as the ones you can find in any audio or video software on your computer. No music in there, only visual and this one is based upon the “Concert Live” artwork, the one from 2012 with the roses… and that’s pretty much it!
Click here (link no longer available)  if you’d like to buy one, price £35
Make it fast, 25 is a very limited edition!

Soundwave poster – Linger

And for those who still don’t have the “Concert Live” official live albums you can buy some of them (both 2010 and 2012) these days for a special price of £3.

“Linger” played during “The Bachelorette” TV show (UPDATED)

June 22, 2015  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

According to Fanberries on Facebook who was following “The Bachelorette” TV show live, The Cranberries minus Mike and Fergal played “Linger” with a string quartet at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin while two candidates were dancing together. It was an acoustic performance.

The TV show didn’t play the whole song (only 2 minutes) and there were dialogues on it at times. However, still according to Fanberries, it is worthwhile.

Dolores and the string quartet behind – “The Bachelorette” (image: abc)

For now you can watch a 2-min video captured by David Elieser Alvarez and shared on Fanberries Facebook. It looks like David filmed his TV screen with a cell phone. Thanks to him.

Another and a little longer video (3 min) was recorded by The Cranberries Brasil and shared on their Facebook. Thanks to them as well.

Later at night, Andrew Kimmel producer of “The Bachelorette” published on Instagram a photo with Dolores, and a few words:

…and Chris Harrison, the host of the show, published a 13-sec video on Instagram, with a few words as well. Obviously he was one of the few people allowed inside the cathedral during the recording. His short video is very interesting because it is an audience recording and direct sound inside the cathedral can be heard… and it sounds beautiful… with all the depth and space of such a place.


UPDATE – JUNE 23

The full appearance broadcast on abc is now available on YouTube.
Thanks to Pep Vila for sharing.

Dolores not saying anything about her new love revelation

May 28, 2015  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Again, Dolores is in the Irish press today and again it comes from the Irish Mirror with an article entitled “Why Dolores it always rain on me? Singer looks glum on country walk in downpour day after her new love was revealed

Probably tracked by paparazzi because of the revelations of her possible relationship with Olé Koretsky Dolores was photographed walking in the rain yesterday around the family home in Ballybricken. Asked how she felt about her new love interest Dolores answered:

I’m just having a relaxing time at my mum’s house.
I’m not doing any press.
I’m not saying anything.
Thanks love.

And that’s pretty much it. The rest of the article is no particular interest and sometimes pure speculations especially when the article is entitled “Singer looks glum on country walk…” who looks happy when walking alone in a continuous rain and deep in thought!

Dolores O’ Riordan “certainly in love with Olé”

May 27, 2015  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

According to the article entitled “Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan bounces back from marriage split with hot young musician” published by the Irish Mirror, “Dolores is certainly very happy and in love with Olé Koretsky“. These words are said by Philip Tobin who recently met Dolores and Olé at “Kites”, a Chinese restaurant in Dublin, Ireland.


Kites Chinese restaurant

Sure this is NO OFFICIAL STATEMENT but if you followed the news about Dolores these past months it is reasonable to say it’s probably true. For sure, it will not sound very surprising to die-hard fans. Many of you already mentioned this possibility in many comments here on CW and as you know Olé Koretsky is currently working with Dolores (as well as Andy Rourke) in a new musical project called JetlagNYC. He also was spotted with her in different locations such as New York City, Los Angeles, Limerick and others… and some location can be considered very private.

Anyway this news must be taken very carefully, for example “They were singing some of their new stuff in the restaurant – it sounds amazing”. Even if possible it’s quite surprising… or Philip Tobin possibly did not recognize some old or cover songs but if he is right what a night and what a lucky man he is!

Dolores spotted by fans on social networks. Recap!

May 21, 2015  |  Comments Off on Dolores spotted by fans on social networks. Recap!  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Here is a little recap of the photos/selfies with Dolores made by fans in the past months. Those pics are usually reTweeted/reFacebooked on CW’s Twitter and Facebook accounts and do not appear all the time on the website here at the very minute. This post is to repair the fault as some of you don’t use social networks while others may simply have missed a photo.

As you probably all know, news about Dolores (and The Cranberries) have always been quite rare so thanks to those bloody socials, now fans have a better idea about the recent locations and activities of their favorite stars more easily than in the past.

And a big thank you to all the people/fans who shared their precious moments to the world.

Dolores spotted at Treyvaud’s Restaurant in Killarney

May 7, 2015  |  Comments Off on Dolores spotted at Treyvaud’s Restaurant in Killarney  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Dolores was spotted today at Treyvaud’s Restaurant, 62 High Street, in Killarney, Ireland. Is this a coincidence? BWWTV was mentioning yesterday that the Bachelorette dates would attend a private Cranberries concert and then move on to Killarney. Looks very much like the private concert took place/is taking place these days.

As a matter of fact, the restaurant owner first posted a simple message on Facebook

…and about an hour later, still on Facebook, posted a photo with Dolores and the message “Hanging with Dolores!!

The Cranberries appearing in the next season of “The Bachelorette” (UPDATED)

May 6, 2015  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Sort of breaking news today as several articles in the medias mention The Cranberries playing a private concert in the new season of the TV show “The Bachelorette” USA version. Season 11 premieres next May 18th on ABC.

Travelling across the Atlantic to Ireland, the dates are filled with explosive revelations and drama, as the group journeys to Dublin and a stop at the magnificent Christ Church Cathedral. The Bachelorette and one lucky man are treated to a private concert by the popular rock group The Cranberries. Then their Irish excursion moves on to Killarney with a romantic trip to the Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone.

It looks like all the episodes are now recorded so if true The Cranberries reformed at least for one day. Hope we can have more details soon as it would be the first show of the band in about 2 years and a half.
This is not the first time The Cranberries or Dolores solo appear on TV/Movies (Charmed, Click…) and it is always nice to see them in projects like this.

“No Need To Argue” to be reissued on 180g vinyl on July 17th

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

Title says it all…
Good news for collectors and people who still don’t have “No Need To Argue” on vinyl, the masterpiece album will be reissued on Plain Label on July 17, 2015 and can be pre-ordered online right now for $23.78 on runtshop.com

runtshop.com

The news directly came from Runt on 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.

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


UPDATE – MAY 12

EARLIER THAN EXPECTED THE LP IS NOW IN STOCK.

Angelo Badalamenti: “Dolores and I are working on her album”

April 15, 2015  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Thanks to Sara from Cranberries Italia for searching the web and finding this interview of the composer Angelo Badalamenti published on spiritandfleshmag.com
It’s a long interview about David Lynch, movies, Angelo’s musical career and other things.

Concerning Dolores there’s only one line but what a line:

Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries and I are working on her album;
she’s a wonderful lyricist with an edge to her voice.

The Cranberries’ songwriters sign with Warner/Chappell Music

April 2, 2015  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

According to the article entitled “Cranberries’ songwriters sign with Warner/Chappell Music” published on musicweek.com, Dolores and Noel signed a publishing partnership with Warner/Chappell Music UK covering their share of the band’s body of work 1993-2004 from “Everyboby Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We?” to “Wake Up And Smell The Coffee”.

Richard Manners, Managing director of Warner Chappell UK says:

I am delighted Warner/Chappell will provide a home for the works of Dolores and Noel, and I am especially happy to be reunited with their amazing music having signed the band’s original publishing deal at the start of their career. This is a distinctive catalogue, melodically and lyrically, and their huge international success has given it a truly global reach. They continue to be popular and highly respected musicians today, and we look forward to working with them and their management team to create new opportunities for their outstanding compositions and build on their already impressive career.

This is pretty good news which proves that Dolores and Noel still can agree about The Cranberries. Up to now, nobody has heard again of the court action launched by Dolores against Noel a year and a half ago so it looks like things are getting better between them.

Also, let’s emphasize that in this article, P.J. O’Riordan (Dolores’ brother) is mentioned as Dolores’ manager.

More information about O’Riordan/Alexandrakis collaboration

March 12, 2015  |  5 Comments  |  by Jury  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Composer/producer Eric Alexandrakis continues to tease Dolores’ fans with new exciting bits of information about their collaboration. And it seems like this collaboration has an official title now:
“Electrons featuring Dolores O’Riordan”
Electrons is the name of Alexandrakis’ project which includes different musicians from bands like Duran Duran, The Cure, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and others.

A few weeks ago we reported about the new song “You Got What You Wanted”. Today there’s more information about this track:
The song is written and recorded by Eric Alexandrakis, Perry Bamonte (The Cure; lead guitar?), Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers; drums), Dolores O’ Riordan (The Cranberries; vocal) and Andy Rourke (The Smiths; bass guitar).
As you can see, Andy Rourke from Dolores’ new band, Jetlag NYC, has joined the Electrons, too. The lyrics for “You Got What You Wanted” were written by Dolores O’Riordan and, according to the title, it may refer to the recent events in her life.

Yesterday Eric Alexandrakis has posted a new exciting photo on Facebook with the comment “Betcha wish you had one of these.

Probably just a vinyl made to one copy or maybe just a photoshop montage of a record that does not really exist yet and we can only ponder how many songs the A-Side and B-Side of this vinyl have.

And there’s a clue as one of our readers, Mimi, posted a few days ago the following information regarding Dolores’ work with Electrons:

“They have quite a few tracks together:
“Redemption”
“Robophobic Redemption” (by far the most amazing sounding thing Dolores has ever been on)
“Purple Heart Redemption” (very clubby)
“Trust” (a.k.a. “La Fine”)
“You Got What You Wanted” (haven’t heard it yet)
and more coming from what I hear.

So… are we gonna have an ALBUM full of Dolores’ songs with Electrons?
Time will tell, or let’s just wait another hint from Mr. Alexandrakis 😉

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 all of you readers/fans would have placed The Cranberries as reason #1 to love and visit Ireland.

Dolores O’ Riordan new live DVD (bootleg!) recorded in Basel at AVO Sessions

February 23, 2015  |  Comments Off on Dolores O’ Riordan new live DVD (bootleg!) recorded in Basel at AVO Sessions  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Danila Aranha shared a couple of days ago on the Facebook page of The Cranberries Brasil a very interesting photo of a new Dolores O’ Riordan bootleg DVD sold officially in store in Salvador by the shop Livraria Cultura.

AVO Session – bootleg DVD

Recorded in Basel, Switzerland on november 15, 2007 during the second European leg of the “Are You Listening Tour”, this show is very familiar to the fans as back in the days it was broadcast on TV in Switzerland and was immediately uploaded on YouTube and still can be easily watched these days on the internet.

Even if the picture of Danila totally makes illusion, this DVD is surely a bootleg item as there are very few chances that, almost 8 years after the performance without any official release, this shop in Salvador has the legal rights to sell it. So pay attention and know what you’re buying if you plan to order it. This dvd probably is reserved to die-hard fans and collectors and not addressed to the general public as production quality may be… uncertain!

DVD is NTSC, possibly factory pressed and not cheap homemade DVD-R.
As it probably should not have ended in that kind of store where people automatically think there are only official products on sale, its selling lifetime can be very limited so if you are a real collector make it fast before it becomes unavailable!

Quite the busy week…
Steve did his bits for a new Electrons song called “You Got What You Wanted”, featuring Dolores O’Riordan on vocals.

Barry Egan reveals that Dolores O’ Riordan has moved to NYC

January 12, 2015  |  2 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan

In a new article entitled “Dolores makes a transfer to Manhattan” published on independent.ie, we learn that Dolores “is in the middle of putting down roots by buying a new home in the city that never sleeps” as she’s looking for an apartment in New York City, East Village.

I love New York […] I guess I was captive for so long. So I love it here. The people are so nice in New York. I have tons of fans here and they’re polite and discreet.
[…]
I spent Christmas here in New York with Andy, his wife and Ole. It was nice and quiet. New Year’s Eve is mad here but really cool. It’s so nice to be alive.

New Barry Egan article: Dolores banishing the darkness

December 21, 2014  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Barely a month after Barry Egan last article “Our Lady of Sorrows”, we’re waking up this morning with a fresh new article entitled “Dolores banishes the darkness and returns to the light” published online and in print in the newspaper “Sunday Independent”.

independent.ie

Barry Egan appears to be relieved to see his long-time friend Dolores O’ Riordan finally taking the road to recovery. Indeed, after admitting that he thought “Dolores wouldn’t make it out of the darkness she seemed so engulfed in last November when she was arrested on an Aer Lingus plane” especially as she had told him she was “not going to live that long. I’m 43. If I see 50, I’ll be happy. I mean that. People look at you and see a product. They don’t see a soul, but an empty hole” Barry Egan seems to be much more relaxed after meeting the singer last Tuesday.

From what he relates, Dolores seems to have taken comfort from her family and her new friends, co-band members Ole Koretsky & Andy Rourke (JetlagNYC) who have travelled from NYC to Dublin to spend the week with her.
She tells Barry:

I am just really grateful for the support I have received from my friends, […] I am well again now. I have had great help and support from people who love me. My mom has been great. My brother PJ – he’s my little angel. I had a lot of help from people. I don’t think I ever felt so cared for before. I always felt like this meal ticket.

“[…]no matter what happens I’ve got great friends who love me for me, not the fame bullshit. You really see who gives a shit. It’s cool but I’m still a bit crazy . ..good crazy though!

She admits nonetheless that she is not “100% better” than what she was following the Aer Lingus incident, but affirms she’s working on it, making huge efforts to heal herself, taking meds and trying to be “somewhat normal in a mad world“.

Spending Christmas far from her children who she “[misses] more than words can say right now” should be the next challenge for her.

Again, we can only hope that Dolores will find the love she needs and will manage to step forward on the road of recovery.

Possible short clip of “La Fine” a new song by O’Riordan/Alexandrakis (3 UPDATES)

December 17, 2014  |  2 Comments  |  by Jury  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Composer, songwriter and producer Eric Alexandrakis who collaborated with Dolores few months ago has posted on Facebook a short clip of him playing guitar intro to some mysterious song.

Some of you may have read about this tune in the Irish press.

Posted by Eric Alexandrakis on Samstag, 13. Dezember 2014

Some of you may have read about this tune in the Irish press” wrote Eric

Attentive CranFans may remember that Irish press indeed reported about “La Fine” a new song recorded by Dolores and Eric. So this short clip could be a little piece of guitar part of “La Fine” (or not)… we just have to wait and see.


UPDATE #1

One of Eric’s Facebook friends wrote this: “It is! I’m one of Eric’s friends and can attest that it’s La Fine. It’s an amazing track, edgy, dark, killer. Perry Bamonte from The Cure is playing lead guitar, Steve Ferrone of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is playing drums, bass player Mark Egan on bass and Eric on everything else!


UPDATE #2

The forementioned message by Eric’s friend on Facebook was later deleted so we guess this information was a little bit too confidential.


UPDATE #3

CONFIRMED, this is “La Fine”
In the comments on Eric Alexandrakis’ Facebook people kept asking if the video was “La Fine” and Eric replied: “I guess the cat’s out of the bag… yes… this is the tune”

Like every end of year new figures and balance sheets in the music business appear in the medias. Today the independent.ie published some of them about The Cranberries in an article entitled “No squeeze as Cranberries enjoy profit of €333,000“. No need to say the amounts given in this kind of articles are never clearly sourced and have to be taken very carefully.

Dolores 3rd solo album: 6 tracks done with Marco Mendoza so far

December 5, 2014  |  Comments Off on Dolores 3rd solo album: 6 tracks done with Marco Mendoza so far  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

2 days ago the webzine 100% rock magazine published the complete interview Marco Mendoza gave in november and that first appeared in edited form in X-Press Magazine’s December 2 issue. X-Press Magazine is one of the most-circulated free street presses in Australia.

xpressmag.com.au

On the edited version the few words about Dolores were skipped (possibly because Marco was coming to Australia to play concerts with his band The Dead Daisies which has nothing to do with Dolores) but on the long & online version his words concerning Dolores O’ Riordan are revealed. Nothing really new that we didn’t know before but one thing: 6 tracks done in studio so far and more to come after his Australian concerts. Obviously this was before Dolores was arrested, now it will/should be after after!

Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries called me from New York, and so I flew up there. We were at the Electric Lady studios recording, we did six tracks.

I got home, and I’m going to continue that after I’m done with The Daisies, she’s trying to get an album together for a solo project. This’ll be my third album with her.

Your chance to live in a piece of Irish Rock History

December 1, 2014  |  Comments Off on Your chance to live in a piece of Irish Rock History  |  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. Among 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.

Today the article entitled “Your chance to live in a piece of Irish rock history for just €200k” published by herald.ie reports 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. Anyone interested?

“Our Lady Of Sorrows”: New article by Barry Egan

November 19, 2014  |  11 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan

From the numerous articles published recently in the Irish press, one stands out, that of Dolores’ long time friend, the Irish Independent journalist Barry Egan, who decided to relate “the turbulent – and very sad – story of Dolores O’ Riordan.”
Indeed, following the incident which took place a week ago aboard the EI110 flight from NYC to Shannon, tabloids had a tremendous time commenting on the “mighty fall from grace” of Dolores O’ Riordan, making fun of the “pious [now] caught in sin” and emphasizing that the singer was spending time in a “posh hotel” (sundayworld.com) after she left the police cell. How tough for fans and all those who love Dolores to read this.


sundayworld.com

Thankfully, M. Egan felt the need to set the context so as to urge readers to remain compassionate. As a matter of fact, in his article, he recalls his fellows of Dolores torment from the past, going back over the sexual abuse she suffered for four years as child and explaining how this episode led her to “anorexia, nervous breakdowns, and suicidal thoughts over the years”.

We would thus like to encourage everyone to pay attention to Barry’s heartbreaking article, and follow his advice: don’t judge Dolores O’ Riordan too hastily. “Our” lady of Sorrows needs love and support more than ever, and being in the media spotlight will definitely not help her to accept and follow the road of recovery.

Again, we continue to send our best wishes to Dolores, her family and her friends during this difficult time, hoping she’ll finally get the helps she needs to achieve some closure.

Eileen O’ Riordan Offers Update on Dolores’s Health

November 13, 2014  |  5 Comments  |  by Shannon  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Today, the Limerick Leader published an in-depth interview with Dolores’s mother, Eileen O’ Riordan, who shares a bit of detail concerning Dolores’s marriage separation and her state of health. The interview is available both in print and online.

Limerick Leader – Front page

“She is going through a marriage separation at the moment. That’s hard for anyone” said Eileen.

Dolores’s mother goes on to state that though Dolores is currently doing much better, Dolores did not recognize her mother at the garda station in Shannon, Ireland, where Dolores was arrested on Monday morning.

“Dolores was inside in a room, she was lying on the floor, curled up. She had her head covered and her face covered up. She was trying to protect herself. I gave her a hug. I tried to talk to her. She didn’t realise I was there at all. I put Lourdes water on her. She didn’t know who I was, she was trying to cover herself from me” said Eileen.

Mrs. O’ Riordan said that she was anticipating her daughter’s arrival on Monday and was in the process of preparing Dolores’s breakfast when she received a call from her son with the news of Dolores’s arrest.  She says that he had been fearing for Dolores’s health for some time, prayerful that Dolores would not be in New York, away from those who could best care for her, if or when something were to go wrong.

“I was waiting for it, hoping that it wouldn’t happen in New York. It would be awful because she wouldn’t have the support there. She is suffering from lack of sleep over the weeks and her brain is racing all the time. She is working very hard. When she was in New York she kept saying ‘when I go home to my mother in Ireland, I will be fine’. She was working in New York producing a new album.”

“She rang on Sunday to say she was coming. She was OK then but she wasn’t herself. She wasn’t Dolores. She would hide it from me. If I asked ‘are you sleeping?’ she would say: ‘Oh I am, I am.”

Mrs. O’ Riordan says that at this time, Dolores “is a lot better than what she was, thanks be to God”.

She confirms that Dolores remains in Ireland where she is cared for by a nurse and a psychiatric doctor who visits Dolores daily.  Dolores reportedly speaks with her children by phone and they are aware that their mother is not well at this time.  The children remain in Canada with their father.

When answering questions specifically concerning Monday’s on-board incident at Shannon International Airport, related to the alleged assault of a flight attendant and an arresting officer, Dolores’s mother states that when Dolores was taken to the hospital for a medical and psychiatric evaluation following the arrest, there were no drugs or alcohol in Dolores’s system.

“She had two glasses of wine with her dinner when she started off but she had no alcohol or drugs in her system. That is completely clear”, Eileen says.

It is suspected that Dolores had been hassled for autographs, photographs, and requests to sing during the flight and had been poked by a couple of passengers who were reportedly drunk, seated behind Dolores, for the duration of the flight and that Dolores “lost it”.

Mrs. O’ Riordan also says that the injured flight attendant is a long-time acquaintance of Dolores: “That girl is a friend of hers. She is a very nice girl. She knows [Dolores] for years.”

Dolores’s mother goes on to say that Dolores had been flying in the company of a “producer and songwriter” (presumably JETLAG partner Olé Koretsky, with whom Dolores had been photographed during her time in New York City over the last several weeks).

When asked how she remains strong to care for her daughter, Mrs. Eileen O’ Riordan credits her strong faith.

“I pray.  I don’t know what I would do only for my religion. There are so many good people – so many I have met are lovely and are thinking of her and praying for her and what more can we do at this stage.”

From all of us, we wish Dolores a full and speedy recovery.  We also express our deepest regret to learn of Dolores and Don’s marital separation and send all of our absolute best wishes to Dolores and her family during this difficult time of transition and healing.

Eoghan McDermott supports Dolores O’ Riordan

November 12, 2014  |  Comments Off on Eoghan McDermott supports Dolores O’ Riordan  |  by Jury  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Eoghan McDermott, an Irish television presenter who is hosting “The Voice of Ireland” has expressed his support for Dolores O’ Riordan in an interview entitled “Eoghan McDermott hopes DOR bounces back from air rage arrest – as she’s an awesome person” and published by Goss.ie yesterday.

I think she is amazing. This morning I heard a reporter on who said an eyewitness said she didn’t deliberately stamp on the foot that she was jumping like going a bit mad” he said.

It was collateral damage so that was some reporter that spoke to an eyewitness. Wait till it all falls out. And obviously she was taken into hospital so you just wish her well you know that she’s okay.”

At the same time it’s s**t for the air hostess to have her foot stamped on. I think Dolores is amazing and I will always stick up for her she’s an awesome person.

I remember she told us on the show that she moved into a pretty desolate part of Canada just because she liked solitude a bit” he said.

I don’t know if she gets angsty around people or confined spaces so obviously they felt she needed to go to hospital.

Eoghan McDermott also told Goss.ie the very first time he met the 43-year-old was an extremely bizarre encounter:
Literally the first time I met her she was chatting to Bressie and I walked in the room and she was like ‘Lads let’s go, let’s touch a tree
She made us go outside and touch a tree just because she wants to be connected with the earth.

Dolores “Getting Help She Needs” – Eileen O’ Riordan

November 12, 2014  |  2 Comments  |  by Shannon  |  Dolores O'Riordan

According to an article entitled “Cranberries star held after claims of fight” published by The Irish Sun, Dolores’s mother, Eileen O’ Riordan, has confirmed that Dolores is currently under a doctor’s care and is getting the help that she needs, following the news of Dolores’s arrest at Shannon International Airport in Shannon, Ireland on Monday morning.

The front-page story posted on thesun.ie goes on to confirm that Dolores remains in the custody of her mother who is optimistic about Dolores’s health.  Mrs. Eileen O’ Riordan is quoted as stating: “My girl will be OK”.

“The Irish Sun” also quotes Mrs. O’ Riordan as saying that she was “not surprised” that this incident occurred – suggesting that Dolores’s family  has had cause for concern over Dolores’s health and well-being over the course of recent weeks and months.

“The Irish Sun” also alludes that additional charges may be pending related to Monday’s incident, citing that Dolores may have allegedly further resisted arrest.

We will continue to provide updates and additional information as news becomes available; and we continue to express our best wishes for Dolores’s health and recovery during this troubling time for Dolores and her family.

Dolores O’ Riordan placed under arrest in Shannon, Ireland (UPDATED)

November 10, 2014  |  10 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Quite an unexpected news this morning as we’re learning that Dolores has just been arrested by the garda following an “alleged air rage incident” on a flight from NYC to Shannon, Ireland.

The article entitled “Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan released into custody of mother after alleged air rage incident in which ‘garda was headbutted and air steward injured’” published by independent.ie describes the incident, explaining that Dolores refused to seat as the flight was landing and stamped on an attendant’s foot.
She then headbutted a garda before spitting in his face at the airport.

We shall probably wait for more information before we get to comment on this surprising event.
Let’s mainly hope our favorite singer is fine and not enduring tough times as it looked like she was lately…

UPDATE

The Independent’s article was updated with more details on the situation.
It seems Dolores has been released from garda custody and has now been hospitalized.
Journalists are awaiting comments from O’Riordan’s representatives…

Dolores O’ Riordan & Marco Mendoza in studio (2 UPDATES)

November 8, 2014  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Andy Rourke may not play bass on Dolores’ upcoming album as Marco Mendoza seems to be back in the game. You might remember that he had started working with Dolores back in October 2013 on new tracks, which he said would not necessarily end up on a third solo album.

This time we trust this project is beginning to materialize as Dolores has been working in NYC for more than a month now. Mendoza mentioned on Facebook on Nov.4 that he was flying back from Miami (where his band The Dead Daisies was opening for KISS ) to NYC so as to join Dolores in studio.

KISS CRUISE !!! what a great time ………… Just got back to MIAMI > on my way to N Y city to work with DOLORES O”RIORDAN ………… stay in touch and updated at : marcomendoza.com and thedeaddaisies.com …. Australia !! see ya soon.

and confirmed the information the day after, still on Facebook, even adding the name of the studio: “Electric Lady”

In THE Studio with DOLORES O”RIORDAN in N Y at ”ELECTRIC LADY”
Great Music !!!!! marcomendoza.com and thedeaddaisies for up dates and

And today Katarina Benzova, who’s none other than Guns N’ Roses photographer as reported last week, posted on Tumblr a great new photo of the guys at Electric Lady Studios.
This is all getting quite exciting, isn’t it?

A new photo of Dolores O’ Riordan in New York City appeared on Instagram today. This time it wasn’t posted by a random fan but a famous professional concert photographer named Katarina Benzova who’s notably working with Guns N’ Roses, the rock band who led her to get known (especially as she’s dating Richard Fortus one of the guitarists of the band).

It seems that this time Dolores stopped for a little jam in the studio with the rock band “The Dead Daisies” made of Marco Mendoza, Jon Stevens, Richard Fortus, Dizzy Reed and more. Right now they are in NYC rehearsing for their upcoming shows. According to Katarina’s instagram, the photo was taken at SIR Studios on 25th Street in New York City.

It is not too surprising to finally find a photo of Dolores taken by Katarina Benzova as she’s been on tour a lot with Marco Mendoza recently, with Thin Lizzy for instance, and as you might remember Marco used to collaborate with Dolores on her first solo album and tour. He is said to be a very good friend of the Burtons.

On Katarina’s photo, everyone will notice Dolores wearing that kind of medieval hat which was part of the costume she already wore in the streets of NYC a few days ago. Remember? How cool is that!
