Dolores O’Riordan leaves The Cranberries?


Source: Click here
Translated from Spanish by cristóbal

Dublin.- Cranberries vocalist has shown the intention of leaving the band. According to information of Hot Press agency, Dolores has said that when Greatest Hits album promo and tour finish, she will make her own projects, and that will not be another Cranberries album. “The boys need some liberty” said O’Riordan. Dolores has said also that her work could be less contemporary, with the intention of creating some “world music”, something based especially in African sounds.

The Band The Cranberries was formed in 1990, and they had worldwide hits like: “Zombie”, “Linger” and “Dreams”.

The last studio albums, “Bury The Hatchet” (1999), and “Wake Up And Smell The Coffee” (2001), weren’t able to sell very well.

Some weeks ago, the band released a greatest hits album, entitled “Stars: The Best Of 1992 – 2002”.

The Midsummernight – June 21st – stands in the sign of benefit. A lot of popstars, like Michael Stipe, Phil Collins, Dolores O’Riordan (of The Cranberries) and Brian Eno will perform in a fashion show of which the income will go to a foundation who helps children in Bosnia. Michael Stipe and Phil Collins will give away exclusive clothing designs, they used in their own concerts, for an auction in the show. Brian Eno is the brain behind a special ’soundtrack’, which will be sold after the event.

Westlife’s Irish cousins are back with a jiggy little number

The last Cranberries single was a scary, howling type thing that made anyone with an ounce of sense run a mile. This time, however, they’ve come up with a perky piece of pop to brighten even the darkest autumn day. Just my imagination? Course not, it’s tops.

Mermaid’s singing


Source: Magazine “Bizz”, 1993
Translated from Portuguese by Cranspektrum

To the weak ears, the irish group The Cranberries came like a kind of balsam. Although they don’t show nothing properly unpublished (because bands like Opal, The Sundays and Shelleyan Orphan went through trace long time), the refinement of the production, the delicacy of the arrangements, beyond the undeniable charm of the singer Dolores O’Riordan did of this debut a pleasant surprise.

Very tune, she conjugates the technic of vibrato like the same that mention the mermaids Lix Frazier (Cocteau Twins) and Caroline Crawley (Shelleyan Orphan). Dolores doesn’t waste her time with obvious things. Specially in tracks “I Still Do”, “Put Me Down”, “Waltzing Back” and “Pretty”, she calls attention when her voice coils in the middle of the climatic structure formulated with the guitars and acoustic guitars of Noel Hogan.

More than a mere overnight sensation, the group impose themselves in behalf of languid sonority, sincerely melancholic, that reveal their members with their feets thrust in that tradition of the european folk rock and with accomplished pop ballads.

Without to count the colour of the hair, but yes the musical intention, the voice of Blondie also influenced many vocalists of the actual pop rock. It’s the case of Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star), Justine Frischman (Elastica), Sonya Aurora Madan (Echobelly), Emma Anderson (Lush), Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) and Sharlenn Spiteri (Texas), among others.

Band express their preoccupation with the adult age


Source: Newspaper “Folha de Sao Paulo”
Date: 2002
Cranslated from Portuguese by Cranspektrum

The Cranberries started to think I the old age. That is what show the lyrics of “Wake Up And Smell The Coffee”. Something natural, since it’s ten years of career. But the chance of the political themes for compositions that approach the maturity express the preoccupation of the adult age.

With 30 years old, the vocalist Dolores O’Riordan give the key that define the CD right away the initial track, “Never Grow Old”, wherein her soft voice flow over the beautiful melody.

Musically, like in the last works, the irish group alternate moments wherein settle ballads in the Dolores’ voice with others wherein open space for Noel Hogan show his guitar sounding heavy.

If there’s no novelty, in the melodies, it’s sure the chance with the return of Stephen Street. So much that it was selected like the first single “Analyse”, that reminds “Dreams”, of the first album. It’s a market’s operation: if the fans complain that the band don’t renovate themselves, at least one song dispute in the radios.

That The Cranberries are a group of singles, no doubt about it, and that’s the reason of why their concerts become from all of them, is known by everybody. Something like that was on mind before the concert, and that’s what finally happened. The usual place for big concerts, La Plaza De Toros De Vistalegre, had inside a fans legion, which was listening and enjoying the performances of Weezer and Dover, in one of those exhaustive concerts that finally get bored to fans of one group and not of the other one. Past 11 o’clock of a Wednesday, and for close the macro concert, was coming out to the stage the “star band”, that didn’t take so long to perform “Zombie” like the second song from an extensive set.

Next, “Salvation” which live is always good, “Just My Imagination” , “You And Me” or “Ode To My Family”, good songs for the encore. And they continued until they finished their singles from the last eight years. Maybe you agree with me in the fact that the best of seeing The Cranberries live, is too see on stage Dolores O’Riordan, because of the fetishist character of her moves, and to listen those characteristic gurgles which live, they sound sincerely good. Some minutes before the end of the concert, in a work day when the subway closes at 1.00, some fans started to walk to the exit, while “Animal Instinct” was sounding like the encore.

Or did you want to claim that when you hear the song Zombie from this band on the radio like me Saturday, or maybe you play the CD with this song on it simply because it’s in your collection, you never think: “jee, that Dolores O’Riordan is just like a braying donkey.” IAAAHead IAAAHead they are fighting. I don’t think it’s such a bad song on itself, but that braying in the chorus could have been less, if you ask me. By the way; Dolores’ looks always remind me of an old lover of mine…

Singers supporting Joesjtsjenko


Translated from Dutch by MB_Number5

Joe Cocker and Sting are setting in for the presidents candidate Viktor Joesjtsjenko of the opposition in the new presidents election in Ukraine on Sunday. On Friday the stars were in a video on the public television in the country. That is reported by the German newspaper Der Spiegel. In the clip the singers summon honest elections.

During the presidents elections last month in Ukraine fraud was practised, which resulted in huge protests. Eventually the elections were declared invalid. It’s very important to Joe Cocker to show his support to the Ukranian nation, because it “strives after a peaceful way to freedom and democration” according to his opinion. According to the singer democration is only working when that’s genuine. He hopes that the re-elections will pass in an honest way, because that’s the only way to reach “ real democration”.

Besides Sting and Joe Cocker also the bands The Cranberries and The Cure have set in for the elections by showing their support to the opposition in TV commercials. According to the organizers of the campaign the goal is too keep the international pressure down on the ruling party of prime minister Viktor Janoekovitsj.

Cranberries singer to quarrel with nanny


Translated from Dutch by MB_Number5

UTRECHT – 02/05/04 – Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan is at loggerheads with a former nanny. The 34-year-old woman, Joy Fahy sued O’Riordan and her husband. According to the baby sitter the married couple had comitted breach of contract.

The court house in Dublin did not esteem the accusations proven. The BBC reported that judge Jonathan Quirke obliged the “nanny” to pay for the whole trial, almost 300.000 euro. Joy Fahy considers to appeal to a higher court. The accuser will receive 1500 euro, because she left a couple of possesions in the house of her bosses after she left.

Fahy has no idea how she should pay for the costs. “I’m just a nanny”, she said according to the BBC after the verdict. “But I still have my honesty and my dignity”. Fahy demanded a Cherokee Jeep, 12,700 euro and a initial payment for an appartment. After the trial the Cranberries singer said that she wishes to leave the whole case behind.

Performance The Cranberries


Translated from Dutch by MB_Number5

The Cranberries banged into the charts with their world single Linger. There were 5 million (!) copies sold of their debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?. With Zombie the band reached again the highest peaks of the charts. And it kept raining hits.
Now that the band exists for ten years, there was a “Best Of” album released with all the hits on it, AND the song Daffodil Lament. This song was picked by the fans because the song was never released on single.
The Irish band played at the beginning of this year in the Heineken Music Hall like they did before, and that gig was sold out in no-time.

Cranberries, The


Translated from Dutch by MB_Number5

The Irish band ‘The Cranberries’ with eyecatcher Dolores O’Riordan was established in the late 80’s, but the succes at the beginning was still far away. The decent, soft songs hardly attracted some audiance in Ireland and England, where the audiance was not really fond of them.
A band from Ireland; that had to be either sturdy rock or a bit folk, but nothing in between, according to the people. The album ‘Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?’ from 1993 was about to flop, untill a few American radio stations picked it up. They started to play the single ‘Linger’, which even became a hit.While they were completely unknown in Europe, The Cranberries were suddenly one of the hottest bands in the US.

In late 1994 a new album was released, ‘No Need To Argue’.There was some more sturdy material on it and even a tearing guitar was percieved here and there. That was very obvious on ‘Zombie’, a real rock classic that will be in the All Time Top 100 without any doubt. The exclusive combination of sturdy guitars and Dolores’ quite soft voice makes ‘Zombie’a suprising but excellent hit. By late ’94 the single was even on number 2 of the Top 40, just behind ‘I Will Survive’ from the Hermes House Band.

It’s a pity that the band kind of turned out to be a one hit wonder, ‘cause after the hit single ‘Ode To My Family’ it became a little quit around The Cranberries. Once in a while they come up with an album like ‘Wake Up And Smell The Coffee’ from 2001, but those albums did not exactly set the rock world on fire.

A short review of WUASTC


Translated from Dutch by MB_Number5

The Cranberries don’t have the popularity they had in the No Need To Argue era in ’94 by a long shot. Over the years the band started to sound decent. The songs are good, simple, innocent and beautiful, but they don’t offer any suprises anymore: streamlined, atmospheric and playing along. The orchestration colours the song material. One thing that’s striking, is that Dolores O’Riordans voice sounds less forced and more natural.
