Marillion

Marillion are a rock band formed in Aylesbury, England often categorized as neo-progressive. They originally started as “Silmarillion” (from Tolkien’s book) with heavy influences from classic Genesis, but went on to develop their own distinctive sound. The band was formed in 1979 by Mick Pointer (drums), Steve Rothery (guitar), Doug "Rastus" Irvine (bass), and others, soon adding vocalist Fish (real name Derek W. Dick), Diz Minitt (bass), and Brian Jelliman. By the time of their first album, 1983’s Script for a Jester’s Tear, the bass position had been taken over by Pete Treva ...read more

Marillion are a rock band formed in Aylesbury, England often categorized as neo-progressive. They originally started as “Silmarillion” (from Tolkien’s book) with heavy influences from classic Genesis, but went on to develop their own distinctive sound. The band was formed in 1979 by Mick Pointer (drums), Steve Rothery (guitar), Doug "Rastus" Irvine (bass), and others, soon adding vocalist Fish (real name Derek W. Dick), Diz Minitt (bass), and Brian Jelliman. By the time of their first album, 1983’s Script for a Jester’s Tear, the bass position had been taken over by Pete Trevawas and the keyboards by Mark Kelly.The studio albums Fugazi (1984), Misplaced Childhood (1985), and Clutching at Straws (1987), as well as the 1984 live album Real 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 Europeans and some-time collaborator 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 reinvigorated and constantly redefined Marillion’s sound. They forged into new musical territories with a succession of inventive, emotional albums, displaying little regard to the vagaries of hit charts or radio playlists. « hide
