    No way. I was only just listening to the cranberries again for the first time in ages. I really liked them back in the early 90s. 46 is so bloody young :(

    Whoa - that was unexpected :(

    (One of my dubious claims to fame was that my band were offered a support slot with the Cranberries in Sheffield (about ‘92) when they were still obscure but turned it down since the invite came from our ex-guitarist who we weren’t well disposed towards at the time. Tenuous I know...)

    1993 was when they really took off. At the time I would have dismissed them as rubbish, and not even funny like the Frank and Walters were, but I'm getting all nostalgic about them now. . . I last heard them on a Reeling in the Years ep, one from, yes you guessed it, 1993.

    No Need To Argue was one of the albums on permanent rotation in the car when I was a kid. Dolores' voice always went straight through me, even before I knew anything at all about music I could tell that there was something special going on there.

    Only 46, she must have been barely out of short trousers when the Cranberries took off.

    Blimey. Too young. I never really got into their music at the time, as far as buying CDs wise. But they seemed to be a constant in the mid 90s and I didnt' mind really.
