A prolific “The Hand” much to our delight

October 22, 2014  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

If you know the work of The Hand you must already know that he is a very prolific cartoonist. As you can judge on his Facebook account and official website he sketched a lot of international and local (Italian) celebrities with his own unique style.
These last months he drew a lot of new portraits of our favorite Dolores. CW already wrote a news about that last august but The Hand continued to draw of lot more after that.

One by one on our Cranberries World Facebook page we shared his works but that is something we don’t really like to do as many people don’t have, don’t like or simply don’t want Facebook. For all those people, here comes a summary of his work!

O’Riordan emerges from shadow in NYC

October 17, 2014  |  Comments Off on O’Riordan emerges from shadow in NYC  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

As you may have noticed these last days, Dolores O’Riordan seems to be living quite an active life in New York City where she’s currently working with Andy Rourke from The Smiths.
The singer was spotted a couple of times partying in some bars and, thanks to social media, pictures capturing these moments ended up on the Internet, enabling us to get some news of our idol.

Today, news are no longer coming from ordinary people anymore but from Dolores herself!
Although she’s not too much into anything Internet-related, she made an exception and posted the following message on her Facebook page much to our (an all fans’) delight: Read More

A rock star in New York, new episode…

October 17, 2014  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Surprising pictures of Dolores in New York keep on popping up on the Internet and this new one shows once again that our favourite singer is having a good time out there.

According to the guy who took the picture, Dolores’ perfectly fine. One may imagine that she has started partying for Halloween?
What seems to be certain, though, is that the upcoming album should be quite “rock”, probably closer to Are You Listening ? than No Baggage.

Let’s also note that another Instagram user has had her Cranberries vinyls signed by Dolores on September 13th thanks to one of her acquaintance who “is drumming on her new album”, which means that Dolores was thus recording in studio in Toronto a couple of weeks ago (and that she is not working with Graham Hopkins on this album).

Seems like we shouldnt have to wait too much longer before we get to hear some new pieces.

Limerick Through The Lens. A new book featuring picture(s) of Dolores

October 16, 2014  |  Comments Off on Limerick Through The Lens. A new book featuring picture(s) of Dolores  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

A new 256 pages book featuring hundreds of pictures taken by the Limerick Leader photographers was published this week.
Pictures come from the archive of this Irish local newspaper and many of them are published for the first time. It appears that there is (are?) picture(s) of Dolores O’Riordan amongst many other Irish famous faces like, for instance, Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy.

The book costs €29.99 and seems unfortunately to be only available locally.

More on O’Riordan/Rourke collaboration

October 15, 2014  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

In the Spring of 2014, O’Riordan told the journalist Nicky Byrne from RTÉ 2fm that she had already written some new stuff for her upcoming album and would collaborate with The Smith’s Andy Rourke.

It seems the work is “in progress” as an employee from a tapas & wine bar located in New York recently posted a picture of the two rock stars, saying that they had already visited the place twice last week and had planned to return.

Now official: O’Riordan will not be a judge on new series of The Voice of Ireland

October 3, 2014  |  Comments Off on Now official: O’Riordan will not be a judge on new series of The Voice of Ireland  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Voice

It has just been announced in the Irish Independent that Dolores O’Riordan will definitely not seat in the red chair this year as Una Foden, from the band The Saturdays, will be the third coach on new series of the TV show. As we know, Dolores was not willing to return to the show as commuting from Canada to Ireland was very tiring.

The singer is also supposed to be releasing a third solo album at this end of this year/beginning of 2015, and should then be going on tour to promote her news songs, which should not allow her enough time to dedicate to The Voice of Ireland.

Let’s note Jamelia should not return either due to expensive commute from London every week. Her replacement has not been announced yet.

Inauguration of the Polish Presidency 2011: new HD video for sharing

September 11, 2014  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

About a year and a half one of our reader Piotr from Poland sent us the HD 1080 video of Dolores performing for the Inauguration of the Polish Presidency on July 1st 2011. If you don’t know anything about this show you can have more information in our Promo Performances pages. At the time the video was uploaded in 4 parts and for some reason one of them was corrupted and we never succeeded to see it.

This week we recontacted Piotr and he still has it in his collection and agreed to re-send/re-upload it. He not only agreed to share it with us but also agreed to share it with the world and gave us permission to spread his direct link so here we go. It is the complete performance, it is about 410 Mo and it really worth it, enjoy: Read More

2 New interviews: Noel Hogan on the radio and The Hand on Cranberriesitalia.it

September 8, 2014  |  Comments Off on 2 New interviews: Noel Hogan on the radio and The Hand on Cranberriesitalia.it  |  by Axl  |  Other News

More media for The Pigtown Fling: as just announced on their Facebook Noel Hogan and Eoin Devereux will be interviewed on Limerick Today on September 9. Interview airs at 11:25am on Limerick’s LIVE95FM

Second thing to mention today is an interesting interview published on Cranberriesitalia.it with the famous cartoonist The Hand well known in the world of The Cranberries and who recently drew new portraits of Dolores and The Cranberries as we reported here. He also posted still on his Facebook this new drawing for Dolores’ birthday.

Quite unfortunately the interview is in Italian (obviously!) so if like most of us you don’t understand a word you can use an internet browser like google chrome and put the address of the page inside and if you have a recent version of chrome a (not so bad) translation in your language may appear. Thanks chrome and thanks to cranberriesitalia.

A small message from Dolores O’Riordan

August 26, 2014  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

As mentioned yesterday, Dolores is joining Eric Alexandrakis today to record a track called “La Fine”.

Much to our delight, the songwriter producer just posted a message from Dolores on his Facebook account:

“Great to be working with Eric, chillaxing in the forest. Always good times with the bears…because the bears don’t care…look at you now…don’t fade away. Love, Dolores”

Although it is great to learn she’s enjoying the collaboration and we’re quite happy that she delivered a message to Alexandrakis for the fans to read (she, who usually doesn’t give much news while in studios as she’s not too much into the Internet tools), we can’t help but notice that she still sounds haunted by her old demons, alluding to people’s judgement, and the disappointment of being let down.

Let’s hope songwriting, as well as this break post The Voice, will help her achieve some closure.
