^^^ Nice choices! It was a great decade. I was listening to Jagged little Pll the other day for the first time in many years. Cracking album! Neil Youngs Harvest Moon is also really good.

^^^ Good to see The Nephilim in your list too :-)

I have the film of Marillion's Brave. It's very depressing. I could never get my head round Hogarth era Marillion.

It was a must! The Neph are one of my all time favourite bands :)

Yup, I have the film too. For some reason, they decided to end the film in that rather unpleasant way, rather than the ending that was implied by the album's final song.
I have mixed feelings about Hogarth. Some of his songs are fantastic, others really stink. But it's a funny thing to think that Hogarth has now been fronting the band for 28 years now, so he must have been doing something right with them...

I saw the Nephilim live numerous times. They were always great live. The best gigs were on the Dawnrazor and Elyzium tours. The latter at Brixton acadamy was mindblowingly good. I was almost moved to tears by Last exit for the lost.

I was a Marillion fan back in the Fish era, until I discovered far better prog rock by all the bands that had influenced them. Yeah, Hogarth's been at the helm for years now, and they're still really big. People don't realise it, but they always chart quite high with their albums AFAIK.

I saw Marillion 3 times.

The first was at Plymouth Polytechnic before, I think, Script For A Jester's Tear, had been released but after the Market Square Heroes 12" (with Grendel on it) came out. They were brilliant, challenging, funny, musically adventurous. Fish as a front man was simply sublime and his patter between songs socially and politically aware and worthy of a stand-up. They were a real blast of something different back in '82 (ish).

I saw them a couple of times afterwards once at the Colston Hall in Bristol and once at Gloucester Leisure Centre, both times with Fish still, but they'd lost it by then and I enjoyed the gigs less as each one happened. The proggyness was more preposterous, it all got a bit samey, Fish seemed to have been reined in by the others (that poly gig was very much The Fish Show) and it just wasn't the same.

I've a couple of friends who absolutely worship Marillion and don't mind Fish doing his own thing ("just two great bands to follow innit!") but I have kind of lost interest. I still pop on SFAJT every now and then and enjoy it immensely and that couplet in Kayleigh: "do you remember? Dancing in stilletoes in the snow" is as good as any lyrical couplet ever recorded (right up with "the devil came and took me from bar to street to bookie" and that is high praise) but they just don't draw me in any more. I'd probably not be unhappy to listen to their later stuff (or any Fish solo recordings) but I just can't raise the enthusiasm to actually try them out.
