COMPETITION WINNER

November 8, 1999  |  Comments Off on COMPETITION WINNER  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The competition for the signed Gold Disc ended a long time ago, and only now have we sifted through the entries, picked out the right answers, and drawn a winner. If you remember, the question was “What does Mike like with his Turkey?”. Well, the answer to that was “Cranberry Saw Us”, which is a little play on words as well as being the original name of the band. This answer was the only correct one to go into the hat and be drawn by myself (Fergal). We printed off each correct answer, crumpled the paper into a ball, and just drew one piece of crumpled paper out of a hat at random. The winner will be informed today, and until we get a response via email, we won’t announce the winner on this website. Fair is fair. So, check your email folks! Bye for now,

-Fergal.”

New Album Recording

November 5, 1999  |  Comments Off on New Album Recording  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

A few days ago, Dolores went on a French radio station to answer different questions by the fans. Most of the questions were minor, but there was one that was certainly newsworthy. In response to a question about the next album, Dolores said that the band was going into the studio in January of next year to record the next album! (Hey, that’s only two months away, people!)

News from the official page:

“How’s it going?

It’s the 4th of November and I’m at home on a day off. Dolores and myself have been flying home to Ireland because she isn’t bringing her son Taylor with her on the road for this tour, and I want to spent time with my wife because she is pregnant. Noel is flying over and back to London as he and his wife are having their baby there. Poor old Mikey is travelling on the bus because he doesn’t really like flying.

It is a much different way of touring for us but the cool thing is that you get to spend your day off at home. Although I must admit we were talking last night and we all agreed we must stay out on the bus a couple of nights for a good old party!!!!!

Anyway, enough rabbiting on. We played our first gig of the European tour on Monday in Rotterdam. It was a bit of a tough gig to be honest as we have two new sound guys, and everything sounded a bit swirly, but the audience was mega, so we just ignored the sound problems and got stuck in. Last night we played in Lyon and everyone agreed that it was one of the best audiences we’ve had. So if anyone that was there is reading this, thank you and we hope you enjoyed it!

I’ve just spent the last hour reading some of the stuff that different Cranberry fans have been chatting about on the Internet. It’s really cool to read things from your perspective and it gives us ideas of what you do and don’t like. Also I just want to say, DON’T WORRY, we are NOT going to retire after we finish our 6th album. We want to keep the Cranberries going for as long as possible !!!

I just heard the other day that there are talks of some Australian and Asian shows in March 2000. As soon as I get confirmation I’ll let you know.

That’s it for now ,
Talk to you soon.

Fergal.”

Hello there,

We are still at home in Limerick, although we are working!!! We did a press conference here the day before yesterday to announce our first Irish concert since 1994. (That will be Millstreet, Co. Cork, Dec 11th) We are really looking forward to it as it is always very special to play in our home country. There are always lots of family and friends so it makes for a very emotional night.

I have some more good news which is that there are some more Cranberry babies on the way!!!!! Noel’s wife is expecting twins in February and my wife is expecting a week later. Woo Hoo!!!! It’s an experience I can’t wait for especially after spending time with Dolores’ son.

We travel to Paris on Monday for a few days to do some T.V. shows and then we are off to Milan, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Madrid and various parts of Germany.

Doing T.V. shows is a completely different thing from doing a live concert because you are not in control of everything, but that can add to the excitement which is always good thing.

I’ll talk to you soon as now I am going to watch Ireland play Australia in the Rugby World Cup..

See ya later,

Fergal.”

Press Release

October 10, 1999  |  Comments Off on Press Release  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

A press release has been posted on the Cranberries Official page. Check it out:

“PRESS RELEASE!

It is over four years since the Cranberries last played in their home country, and with over 150,000 Irish album sales under their belt, the band announced today that they will conclude their European tour in MILL STREET, CO. CORK on 11th (Correction!) December 1999. 22nd October sees the Irish release of “Just My Imagination”, the third single taken from the band’s current album ‘Bury The Hatchet’ which has sold in excess of two and a half million copies worldwide, and hit the number one spot in eleven countries.

The video for the new single “Just My Imagination” was directed by American director Phil Harder and shot on location in Ireland, and Irish viewers will be the first in the world to see it.

The band have just returned from a triumphant American tour: “…. O’Riordan sang the melancholic ‘Dying in the Sun’, it was a moment of intense vulnerability that left you pining for more’ (Hollywood Reporter on final US date). The European tour will be the biggest tour by a major rock group this fall, dates are selling out all over the continent.

Tickets for the Mill St concert go on sale Saturday 9th October, and are available through all the usual outlets. Tickets are priced at £22.50 (+ subject to the usual booking fee).”

Just My Imagination Cover/Tracks!

September 16, 1999  |  Comments Off on Just My Imagination Cover/Tracks!  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Ahh.. I’ve been waiting for this! Tracks and covers for Just My Imagination! Without a moment wasted, here they are:

Tracks:

1. Just My Imagination
2. God Be With You
3. Such A Shame (previously unreleased)
4. Zombie (Live, Hamburg 4/99)

Interesting. It sounds to me that the Berries have left the most gloomy material for B-sides as not to affect the feel of the album (Sorry Son, Papparazzi on Mopeds, and now likely Such a Shame).

And here are the covers:

JMI CD 1:

JMI CD 2:

Look famililiar! Of course! I had a sneaking suspicion and I was right.

Another thing to ponder is why is there CD1 and CD2? Are these UK editions? If so, that must mean that although JMI will be released in America, it is not an American-exclusive release.

Elle Article

I’ve got the Elle artice typed up for you. (Some of you complained you could’t read the picture).

“A Young Woman’s Guide to Being a Rock Chick” 5. NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY Dolores O’Riordan “I’m dividing my time between my band and my motherhood,” beams Dolores O’Riordan, elfin lead singer of The Cranberries from her 300-acre farm, nestled between Tipperary, Cork and Limerick. A star since she was 19, and famously the fifth richest woman in the british isles, Dolores summarises her career: “The Cranberries started at naught, went right to 10, and then we lost the plot. Three years ago, I came off the road and I was really mentally ill. What was the point of being really famous, having loads of money and having no reality?” A two year break, a baby, Taylor Baxter Burton (“You suddenly realise what the essence of life is”), seven horses, two dogs and the Irish countryside have worked their healing magic: “My family’s waiting for me. It’s very stabilising.” And for God’s sake, ignore your critics: “They can really disturb you. Do whatever you feel you were put on this earth to do. To heck with everybody else.”

Thanks to my good friend Erik Antonie (Bahiatr@aol.com) for typing the article!

Thanks for your emails! I got alot of info that some people sent me.

Westh 54th is a concert show that appears on PBS. Usually it comes on after “PBS On Tour”. It’s more a private show, with a smaller, more intimate audience. The official West 54th hompage is at:

The Berries are not on the schedule for September, so they’ll probably appear next month.
