Manchester group Marion, fronted by singer/songwriter Jaime Harding, formed in 1993, picking up praise and accolades from the likes of Johnny Marr, Morrissey, Radiohead, Courtney Love and many more artists and critics. The group released their debut UK Top 10 selling album 'This World and Body' in 1996, followed by Johnny Marr produced album 'The Program' in 1998, before their untimely split in 1999. The group reunited to sell out shows in 2006 and 2012, before going on hiatus.
Due to original Marion guitarist Phil Cunningham's uncompromising New Order commitments, Marion's singer/songwriter Jaime Harding has, with Phil's blessing, taken a leaf out of one of his idols Mark E Smith's book and put together a younger, more vibrant gang of musicians that tear along under his voice like starving northern whippets. The group members comprise of former Twisted Wheel drummer Blair Murray, Andrew Tarling (Tom Hingley and The Lovers) and Andy McKerlie (Des Horsfall's Kuschty Rye).

Q: What’s the most underrated record you’ve been involved with?
Johnny Marr: “I’d say an album I did in the mid-90s called The Program with Marion, which I produced. Jaime (Harding, Singer) was actually living the life that Brett Anderson was singing about and that Pete Doherty could only dream about, which was unfortunate for Jaime. He is such an incredible singer and an interesting writer; I wrote a few songs with him on it and I played on most of the tracks. It’s a good record”.
