The Marion Flow

Posted on Updated on

It’s lo-fi, organic and about as eclectic as one could manage. Kind of reminds me of Nick Cave if he had grown up in Timaru. No pretentious American accents or catch phrase choruses, just a bunch of people making music. A little beauty!” – NZ Musician, August/September 2002

Turn-of-the-milennium fusion of warm acoustic pop, spoken word and postpunk discord. An almost-acknowledged New Zealand classic – of its time yet timeless.

$5 download includes hidden tracks, lyrics and original CDR artwork.

Edwards’ music is often a sculpture rather than a melodic composition. Within this chosen form, amongst all the writings rantings & poetry there’s much difficult pleasure to be had for the musically adventurous.” – Brent Cardy, Real Groove, July 2002

Produced by Paul Winstanley, & featuring Chris O’Connor (drums), Chris Palmer (electric guitars), Simon O’Rorke (percussion), the Dadapapa Magickclone Orchestra and more. Recorded at the TFC Lounge, New Plymouth, 1999, and Thistle Hall, Wellington, 2001.

A companion to this album, recorded at the same sessions in Taranaki in 1999 is DDPP: Waiting For the Drummer
