A first chance in almost 20 years to hear back “Like You Used To” and “False”
RTÉ radio host Dan Hegarty confirmed tonight on his blog that he is going to broadcast the Cranberries’ complete 1993 Dave Fanning Session next Tuesday. This session was recorded shortly after the release of the band’s first album, Everybody Else is Doing so Why Can’t We?.
During an interview with Dave Fanning few days before the first 1993 broadcast, singer Dolores O’Riordan and drummer Fergal Lawler explained that they were recording a new version of “Wanted” for that session, plus three new songs. It is likely that those songs are “False”, “Like You Used To” and “The Icicle Melts”. The latter was recorded again a year after for the band’s second album No Need to Argue, while the first two were never commercially released.
Few weeks ago, some hardcore fans from the cranberries.me community joined forces to ask the Irish radio host to broadcast this session. Thanks to all who participated!!
And a big CHEERS to Dan Hegarty!
Be sure to tune in to Dan’s show, next Tuesday night (October 18) at 11 p.m. (Ireland time).
Note (October 18): There have been some confusion on RTÉ 2fm website. The session broadcasted tonight was the 1991 session (“Dreams”, “Uncertain”, “Reason” and “Put Me Down”) and not the 1993 one, announced last Thursday.
