Rawness was the order of the night...
LIKE THE best of Christmas relishes, The Cranberries went down a treat. They’ve mastered the art of solo song titles with more aplomb than even Bono could muster. ‘Special’, ‘Empty’, ‘Linger’ betray no more and no less than the core of each song.
Rawness was the order of the night with The Revenants’ core duo of the Ryan brothers thrashing and flailing their way through a brief set, set alight by G. W. McLennan’s ‘Haven’t I Been A Fool’.
The Berries live are a sight and a sound to behold. Never mind the sonic assaults of Nirvana, the gruesome howlings of Pearl Jam – nobody else is doing it quite like Dolores & Co., so why shouldn’t they? Indeed.
