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.

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!

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.

Band Celebration

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! 😀

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.”

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.

Now why do I think this, you ask? As you can probably see, this is a pic from the postcards included with the program. NOW, each one of those postcards has coverart on them. On the back of each postcard, it says what the name of the CD it is that that art if from (Ex: Postcard with burning bear says “The Cranberries : Promises” on the back). On the last postcard with this image, it says “The Cranberries : Just My Imagination”. Judge for yourself.

News from the Horse’s Mouth

August 9, 1999  |  Comments Off on News from the Horse’s Mouth  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

From the official page:

“August 9th 1999

Hi there, how’s it going?
We are back in the USA again. We kicked off our new leg of the “Loud and Clear” tour in Tampa, Florida two days ago. It was great to play again after our eight week break, and we weren’t too rusty (I think!!?).

We have changed our set list quite a bit since the last tour. Dolores asked us if we would be up for trying “God Be With You Ireland”, the song she wrote for a movie (The Devil’s Own). It sounds very powerful so I think it will be a permanent resident in the set for a while.

We did a video for “Just My Imagination” in Dublin just before we came over here it will be released (only in America) in a couple of weeks. I’ll see if I can put it up here for you.

O.K.,. that’s about it , I’ll talk to you soon,
All the best,

Fergal.”

Hmmm… Just My Imagination will be a US-only release? Sounds like it to me! Cool!

I wonder what the video’s concept or director is? They may have stuck to Olivier Dahan again.

That’s the news for now.

Dolores Plans for the Future

August 3, 1999  |  Comments Off on Dolores Plans for the Future  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Dolores recently told British press about her plans later in life — to start a foundation for abused children.

“Warped things do happen in Ireland and what they used to do to children was terrible. It wasn’t just the Church, it was the beatings in school, too. But I was very lucky. I was never abused as a child. I have a very lovely upbringing,” Dolores told London magazine, Metro. She later goes on to say, “Why would anyone want to screw a child? When my little boy falls and hurts himself he cries and looks at you to take away the pain. And you feel awful if you can’t.”

She also told Hot-Press (on the issure of child abusers), “It’s the worst crime. I think they should be castrated. I just think that people who sexually abuse children get off too easily. They get back after a couple of weeks because, ‘Oh, he’s psychologically ill.’ Which I can understand, but then people get thrown in the can for eight years for smoking dope or something. I think the system is kind of weird that way. It hammers people wo are doing harmless things while these perverts, these paedophiles, are shown leniency.”

Non-singles do well on Foreign Charts

July 22, 1999  |  Comments Off on Non-singles do well on Foreign Charts  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Well, alot of people think that BTH is the Cranberries’s most single-ready album and here are some interesting stats to prove it:

“What’s On My Mind” is currenlty #12 on French charts
“Shattered” is *still* #6 on Japanese charts

Now, I love “What’s On My Mind” (my favorite off the new album) but ranking it on a national chart without it being a single?! That says something.

April Fools Comes Late This Year

July 20, 1999  |  Comments Off on April Fools Comes Late This Year  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

You know, it seemed fishy to me from day one. The song “Alone” that has been passed around the net in MP3 and by collectors on tape, is a ruse (aka fake, forgery, lie.. you get the point). In fact, the CD called “The Great Irish Instrumental Songs” does not exist either… along with the tale about Pearce Gilmore selling the song. This was all a semi-well-done hoax put on by one member of the Yesterday’s Gone Page en espanol. The version of the song “Alone” that you may or may not have heard was actually a Stone Temple Pilots song titled “Press Play”.
This was all posted on a very long editorial on the respective page within the past two days. This does not mean that all info. from YGP is illegitimate, as the site has three webmasters. The site does have contacts with Pearce Gilmore, but the information given by the one bad apple that pulled all this on is is false.
From now on, the page will confirm any news posted on its site.

And the US Fans Rejoiced.

Wahooo! Straight from the official page.. read!

“Hi there,
Well I just got back from Italy where I spent three weeks relaxing with my wife. Dolores was in Canada for a few weeks with her husband and son; Noel and his wife went to the Caribbean and Mike and his wife were in Portugal. Everyone had a great time and the “batteries are recharged”.
Our tour manager is getting married in a few days so that should be a good day out. We have decided to release “Just My Imagination” in the U.S.A., so we will be doing the video for that at the end of this month, and then we go to Florida to rehearse for a week before we begin our U.S. Tour. That’s about it I’m afraid (I’m so boring aren’t I ?). Talk to you soon,
All the best,
Fergal.”

So “Just My Imagination” WILL be the next singe (Ok, I was wrong) and best of all — A US release!!
