Bio[Edit this profile]
Marion are a rock band, originally formed in 1993, in Macclesfield, Cheshire. They became synonymous with the Britpop music scene, appearing on the Britpop Now BBC television special. Influenced by local stars like Joy Division, Buzzcocks and The Smiths, they were hailed as possible successors to The Smiths but never achieved the success predicted for them, falling prey to the so-called "Curse of Morrissey" — Morrissey's praise and support for young bands were said to be fatal. Unfortunately, Jaime's well documented drug addiction got in the way of a very promising career and they split up in 1999.
