Every once in awhile, you stumble upon something quirky that sticks out in your mind. Check out this Bury the Hatchet Promo CD-ROM from Italy!

Also, I found out that not only is there an Asian version of BTH that comes with a white and blue mug, but there’s also another version that comes with a BTH clock! And yes, this is an official item, not that generic “Picture Disc Clock”. If you are really interested in purchasing either version, they sell them along with other mega-rare items at www.eil.com

The suspense is building.. you can’t wait to get your hands on “Just My Imagination”.
OK, maybe you’re not as excited as I am. Never the less, if you ARE as excited as me, I’ve got some small morsels to help you hold the tide.

“Just My Imagination” Alternate cover:

Now I don’t know for sure what version this will be on, but I would suspect the international version.

And, next..

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

September 16, 1999  |  Comments Off on Elle Article  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

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!

West 54th

September 14, 1999  |  Comments Off on West 54th  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

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.

While “Animal Instinct” is on the charts in places in Europe, some radio stations are airing yet another song from “Bury the Hatchet”. That song is “Dying in the Sun”. So will this song be the next single in Europe? Decide for yourself.

More Bonus Tour CD Info

September 7, 1999  |  Comments Off on More Bonus Tour CD Info  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

I got some more info about the new CD included with the tour books. The cover has the red room shot with Dolores lying on the bed. I also says “The Cranberries Loud and Clear Tour 1999” on the cover. The disc has the same inscription and also says “Limited Edition”. The CD contains the following tracks:

Liar (live)
Ridiculous Thoughts (live)
Promises (live)
Waltzing Back (live)

I don’t know where the tracks were recorded or if the price of the book rose because of the CD.

Band Celebration

September 7, 1999  |  Comments Off on Band Celebration  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

From Fergal at the official page:

“Hi , it’s me again.
We are in Minneapolis, and badly hung over I’m afraid!! We played in Chicago last night and it was a great gig so everyone was in flying form. As today is Dolores’ birthday we threw a surprise party after the show which continued onto the bus. We have about twenty or so people working with us on the tour and they are all really nice so it’s always good to have a night like that to help everyone relax after working so hard for the past few weeks.
I’m afraid I have to go back to bed now for a snooze so I’ll talk to you again in a few days.
Take care,
Fergal.”

Looks like the band partied a little TOO much! 😀

More Charmed Info

August 31, 1999  |  Comments Off on More Charmed Info  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Here’s some info I found:

“i dont know how many in this group actually watch the show, so ill explain it well.
i was reading a magazine, and they had some charmed info. the show is about 3 sisters, the 3 charmed ones. they each have a different power blah blah. the middle sister, Piper, was a chef in a club/restaurant called ‘quake’ this past season.  well as the story goes this season, she ‘launches a club that will occasionally feature big-name musical acts.’ so thats where the cranberries come in.”

Thanks to Delilah165 (delilah165@aol.com) for the info!

Hard Rock Live

August 22, 1999  |  Comments Off on Hard Rock Live  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Dolores last night on VH-1’s Hard Rock Live

For those that missed it, the show “Hard Rock Live” was aired last night featuring the Cranberries and Live. They played:

Promises
Linger
Delilah
Zombie

The show rocked, but viewers also got a little bonus. During a commercial for Bury The Hatchet, a clip of the upcoming video for “Just My Imagination” was aired. The video is taped in black and white. Dolores has the short hair look with lots of highlighted freckles on her face. The band sits with their instruments and play on a blank white set while Dolores sings into an exacto blade-shaped microphone.

If you missed the show and would like a copy of it on video, drop me an email at !
