Marillion are a rock band formed in Aylesbury, England often categorized as neo-progressive. They originally started as“Silmarillion”(fromTolkien’s book) with heavy influences from classic Genesis but went on to develop their own distinctivesound. The band was formedin1979 by Mick Pointer (drums), Steve Rothery (guitar), Doug ‘Rastus’ Irvine (bass), and others,soon adding vocalist Fish (real name DerekW.Dick), Diz Minitt (bass), and Brian Jelliman. By the time of their first album, 1983’sScript For A Jester’s Tear, the bass position hadbeentaken over by Pete Trevawas and keyboards by Mark Kelly.

The studio albums Fugazi (1984), Misplaced Childhood (1985), and Clutching At Straws (1987), as well as the1984 livealbumReal to Reel all sold respectably, and the band scored a hit single in Britain with Kayleigh in 1985.

When Fish left the band in 1988 after four albums he was replaced by Steve Hogarth. A former member of The Europeansand some. timecollaborator with The The and Julian Cope, Hogarth brought a new energy to the band.

Across a further ten albums, Hogarth – along with existing members Rothery, Kelly, Trewavas, and Mosley – have reinvigoratedandconstantlyredefined Marillion’s sound. They forged into new musical territories with a succession of inventive, emotionalalbums, displaying littleregard tothe vagaries of hit charts or radio playlists. « hide
