Marrow covers Human Nature by Michael Jackson
Jeremy always wanted to cover his favorite Michael Jackson song, 'Human Nature' and, even as a young, obsessive MJ fan, never viewed it as a love song. Instead, he saw it as an expose on the dark side of humanity.
He talked the rest of us into covering it.

The Year's Ten Best Overlooked Albums, So Far
by Chuck Eddy
This co-ed San Francisco trio's grassroots synth-pop sounds way more human than their genre usually allows; Erin Fortes' vocals have bite, bounce and bubble, as do the beats. Drum 'n' bass skitters, factory clanks, gabba speedups, rave trance-outs, guitar shocks, little gewgaws of noise: it all keeps moving, so fluidly you barely mind that the first four cuts hover around the seven-minute mark. Best songs: A plaintive Depeche Mode rip, a sadistic She Wants Revenge cover, a propulsive guest rap, and — surprise — a very pretty remake of the McGarrigles' '70s folk classic "Heart Like a Wheel."

Marrow: An Unlikely Cover, Graceful And Masterful
by Cecile Cloutier
It's remarkable that Marrow, a dark San Francisco dance-pop trio that mixes sardonic lyrics and whip-cracking beats with a cheerfully jaded attitude, manages a graceful, masterful cover of cult songwriting duo Kate and Anna McGarrigle's "Heart Like a Wheel." It's even more remarkable that, alongside contentious Marrow-penned songs such as "Use Me" and "Impotent Hack," this deceptively spare folk song is easily the most nihilistic track on the disc.

Marrow / Sunshine Enema - Joy Division meets Thrill Kill Kult...
Marrow, Sunshine Enema. Dark, nasty electropop to "make you move your gloomy ass" (as singer Erin puts it) is what Marrow do, and they do it well. Think less chirpy happy upbeat and more Joy Division meets Thrill Kill Kult, with lots and lots of keyboards. At times Sunshine Enema even has an industrial edge, not something you'd expect, but a nice touch.

Sunshine Enema in the SF Chronicle...
"I went to my PO Box and a package took up the whole space. When I opened it, it looked like a prescription refill. My first thought was, I have someone else's prescription, is it a downer? Old habits die hard.
In the package there was a pill bottle, T-Shirt and CD. I still thought it was a pharmaceutical company sending me junk mail. Before tossing it, I took a second look and realized it was a promo release from a band.

Timmii & Pater's Birthday
Tim Pratt asked Marrow to play at his birthday bash at the Dutchboy in Oakland.
We gladly accepted and are going to swing for the fences.
They'll barely know what hit 'em.
DNA gig with Pigface
Thanks to all the folks at Meat and the DNA Lounge staff. You guys are awesome. It's wonderful to work with such professionals.
Our sound check went great. Devon and Dave had the room dialed.
We rocked the crowd. Our new sound was met with lots of unsolicited positive feedback. We think we're onto something...
Marrow and Martin Atkins
Gig with Martin Atkins of Pigface
We got a call from Martin Atkins letting us know he's going to be in town. He'll be lecturing on his book Tour:Smart at Pyramind. We're huge fans of the book and it'll be great to hang with Martin again. This time on our turf.
We're lining up a gig for both Marrow and Martin at Meat at the DNA Lounge. It should be epic, and a great place to try out our new material.
Following the lead of our fans,
We wanted to take our own crack at the remix project. We're really liking where our direction is going. Less formal. Heavier grooves.
We've remixed Use Me, Out On A Limb, and are even doing a cover. We're calling the genre Thick Rich Viscotheque.
