Biography

(1980 – 1983)

Few people know that before Everything But the Girl, Tracey Thorn played acoustic lo-fi pop along with Gina Hartman and sisters Alice Fox and Jane Fox in Marine Girls.

Formed in 1980, they released their debut album Beach Party in 1981. Snapped up by indie Cherry Red, their follow up and last album was Lazy Ways released in 1983. It was produced by Stuart Moxham from Young Marble Giants and showcased a little more polished, mature sound. Soon after its release Marine Girls disbanded: Tracey Thorn formed Everything But the Girl with label mate Ben Watt, and the Fox sisters started a new band, called Grab Grab The Haddock.

In his journals, Kurt Cobain referred to Marine Girls album Beach Party as one of his favourite records.
