The Cranberries (1993 Interview)

In 1993 The Cranberries recorded a session for Dave Fanning, produced I suspect by Jim Lockhart. While they were there Dolores and Fergal dropped over to the 2FM studio for an interview with Dave on his evening show where among other things they talked about the music business, Guy Chadwick, living in Limerick and being compared to The Sundays. There is a short interruption due to a tape flip mid interview. Thanks to the kind reader who dug this one out. If anyone has any Fanning tapes please get in touch as I’m always on the lookout. Of interest are (a) sessions (b) interviews and (c) demos or tracks by bands that Fanning played that are no longer available. I don’t have the the 1993 Cranberries session, maybe Ian Wilson producer of the Dan Hegarty show could be persuaded to dig it out, they say in the interview that they recorded 3 new songs plus ‘Wanted’ from the album.

    amazing…thanks!

  5. I **think** the songs they recorded for that Dave Fanning Session were : False, Like You Used To, The Icicle Melts and Wanted. There’s some medium quality mp3 circulating on the Web.

  6. If someone could get a hand on a good quality recording of that 1993 Fanning session (as good as the 1991 one), lots of Cranberries fans would be in heaven. It’s the only known studio recording of “False” and Like You Used to”, to fan-favorite non-album songs.

  7. […] an interview with Dave Fanning few days before the first 1993 broadcast, singer Dolores O’Riordan and drummer Fergal Lawler […]
