Wayne Ward Demos



Notes:
After the orginal line-up split, Marion started to work with long time friend, mulit-instumentalist/producer Wayne Ward. They worked together in two periods. The first from March 1999 to December 2002 took place at Wayne's home studio, with some pre-production work in Oxford. In total, these sessions yielded 12 tracks.

The tracks listed below were recorded in the first session, and leaked out around 2000. A proposed E.P. called 'Sisters' was muted but unfortunately never materialised.

The artwork above comes from this site. I think it's kinda lovely.

Track Listing:
01. Anyway
02. Can't Help You
03. Loaded All This To Say

The two worked again from January 2003 to December 2005, working as above, but also some time was spent in Manchester. Joe Moss was present throughout, and Johnny Marr contributed also. This time, 15 tracks emerged.

Wayne has in the last year remixed and reworked the bulk of the body of work, and hopes the tracks will see the light of day sometime in the future.

Unreleased Marion Demos


Notes:
Various songs recorded by Marion through their career but never released.

King Of That Thing
Sorry-Go-Round
Too Cold
Only One For You
