Out Of Print... With the chansmatic Dolores ORiordan at the helm, The Cranbenies have flown in the face of fashion to become Ireland's biggest musical export since U2. By concentrating largely on the US market and ignoring the barbs of a cynical UK music press, the band from Limenck have now chalked up two platinum aLbums and world-wide sell out concert tours. Author Mick Carran charts their extraordinary rise from the time when Dolores sang in school, through the bands formation and their early uneven performances and managerial problems, to the success of No Need To Argue and their triumph at Londons Royal Albert Hall in 1995. Along the way he examines their workmanlike strategy, the roles of Feargal Lawler and brothers Mike and Noel Hogan, and the way in which Dolores has evolved from a shy, waiflike teenager, into a mature and confident stage performer. The success of The Cranberries stands as a reminder that old fashioned values like attractive melodies, classy musicianship and hard work on the road are more important than fleeting media attention. Their story offers an insight into the way the pop process works and how The Cranberries hung onto become winners. Illustrated and including a full discography.
