Support 88Nine And This Artist:
According to the Missing Songfacts, the duo of Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn were students at the University of Hull when they met. She was a singer in the pop duo Marine Girls and Ben contributed a photograph to the cover of their LP. They wound up becoming inseparable, forming their own group in 1983, living together and eventually getting married. The name Everything But The Girl was inspired by an advertising slogan of Turner's Furniture, a popular store in Hull near the university.
