"Marion" were a short-lived Britpop band from Macclesfield, Cheshire. Influenced by local stars like Joy Division, Buzzcocks and The Smiths, they were hailed as possible successors to the last-named 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.
Jaime Harding and Phil Cunningham are currently working on new material having played their first live gig together as Marion in over 7 years on the 1st April 2006 in Bath.
