les membres du groupe et leur univers

Marion

Groupe de rock originaire de Macclesfield, Cheshire, formé en 1993. Influencés par Joy Division, Buzzcocks et The Smiths, les membres de Marion ont été un moment pressentis comme les successeurs des Smiths. Ils seront surtout l’incarnation du mouvement britpop. Le groupe a splitté en 1999. Quelques concerts ont été joués en 2006.

Dans une interview de 2014 , un souvenir de la tournée :

We toured with Radiohead and Morrissey – touring with Morrissey remains one of the highlights of my life. He was so charming and funny. And Radiohead were amazing. Thom Yorke said Marion had emerged in the same way as Radiohead, without hype, by gigging hard. I felt honoured that they made that connection.

une review de leur concert du 26 mars 1995 :

First, though, the ‘Heads were preceded onstage by Marion – the future of British rock, part 436. They managed some nicely overwrought moments, but the singer ruined it by playing that least fanciable of instruments, the harmonica. By contrast, Radiohead were overwrought during their entire set.
