    love marion. saw feb 95 time at charlotte, leicester. saw again supporting Cast at Battersea Power Station dec 97 doing (new) 2nd album songs. then london feb 98. great band, the original version of Sparkle is so good (on old school gang cd: Maida Vale Studios, London, UK, January 1996) the chorus was simpler, and to me much better than the recorded album version. hope it’s included on one of these releases.

    Indeed it is gb, the BBC Sessions of This World and Body contains the following:

    BBC RADIO SESSIONS
    1. The Collector [02/07/96]
    2. Toys For Boys [25/01/95]
    3. I Stopped Dancing [25/01/95]
    4. Fallen Through [02/01/96]
    5. The Only Way [27/02/95]
    6. Time [02/01/96]
    7. All For Love [02/01/96]
    8. Sparkle [02/01/96]
    9. Vanessa [02/07/96]
    10. My Children [27/02/95]
    11. Wait [02/07/96]
    12. Your Body Lies [02/07/96]

    Saw Marion a few times, and one of only a handful of bands I’ve seen as a support act but then gone on to really like (when they supported Morrissey (also really like Damien Dempsey who I was also introduced to when he supported Morrissey)).

    Saw Marion in their own right at Manchester Uni, but Jaime was having voice problems in soundcheck so they pulled the gig, he came out to speak to us all and signed posters, and seemed genuinely concerned that we’d had to drive for an hour for nothing. They played the week after though and were great. Still like The Program album though this set seems to be missing the Sushi Soup mix of Miyako Hideaway which was from the Japan CD of Sparkle. Have ordered both sets (The Program has dropped to £9.99 on Amazon – 2 CD set).

    Jaime was due to tour This World and Body this month with a new line up but has sadly been incarcerated at Her Majestys Pleasure again, but hopefully next year. Glad to hear there are more Marion fans out there.

    Every Heep album coming out this way? Sounds good. “Salisbury” is a must.

    Shame that the first “Heep” hyperlink searches for Pet Shop Boys. Not sure those two audiences overlap…

  5. JohnR says:

    Marion – Sleep and Miyako Hideaway are still fantastic.

  6. OceanBlue says:

    I’m quite speechless the new Psb single is already sold out a week before the release. You have a strong fanbase, you know your fans love phisycal items and you don’t press enough cd ?
    It’s a scandal, such a scandal, as Neil wrote for Dusty…
