An interview with Pete is on line (from October 2009).
Fish- vocals till '88;
Steve Hogarth- vocals from '89,
Steve Rothery (25-11-59)-guitar,
Mark Kelly (9-4-61)- keyboards,
Pete Trewavas (15-1-59)- bass,
Ian Mosly (16-6-53)- drums.
Mick Pointer - drums (till medio '83)
In '81 the group has found his members and his style. Fish, John-William Dick, is the strong lead-singer who knows how to use his enormous body and his voice (a resemblance with Peter Gabriel is easy made) to make an act. End '82 an EP The Market Square Heroes
conquers each market place where they performed. Script for a Jester's Tear ('83) is
the best debut album, made ever I believe. (Sorry Mike Oldfield). Whole Great Britain is
lying on their feet. A mister Wilkinson is responsible for the great artwork; it's a shame
that ceedees are so small!
With Fugazi ('84) Europe is taken by surprise.
Steve Hogart (ex-Europeans) takes the roll as lead-singer, and it must be said he seems to satisfied a great part of the fans.
Seasons End ('89) is an proof that the group will survive even without Fish.
Holiday's in Eden ('91) is not selling well, followed by the strong concept album
Brave ('94)(with a great rol for Steve Rothery). Strange Engine ('97) seems
to be a highlight again and live they perform well. The other ceedee's don't reach the level
of to be mentioned...
John Wesly is their support-act from '92 till '98 and then he goes working with Fish! In the meantime Steve Rottery and Pete Trewavas do some session-work for/ with: Iris, The Wishing Tree, Arena and Hogarth makes an solo-album; The Ice Cream Genius ('97). A bunch of albums are made in the meantime: Brave, Afraid of Sunlight, Radiation and many best of albums.
They like to follow the commercial music business with; Unplugged at the Walls ('99).
Marillion.com is an disappointed album from '99. Steve Wilson (Porcupine Tree) produced 5 songs of this site. Followed by three albums for the freaks; The single box, Fracted and a X-mas album.
Anoraknophobia (2001) is a new album that will sell good.
Steve Hogarth - voice, trainspotting, morris dancing, base jumping,
Steve Rothery -guitars, car numbers, star trek,
Mark Kelly - keyboards, fossil collecting, brass rubbing,
Pete Trewavas - bass, stamp-collection, tv repairs,
Ian Mosly - drums, ornithology, taxidermy.
A few dvd's came out: The Single Collection and Brave Live DVD.
Marbles is the excellent (double) ceedee and more dvd's are seeing the daylight!
The album Somewhere Else will be released on April 9th 2007 through the band's own Intact label.
The album was preceded by a single See It Like A Baby on 26 March 2007.

The Friday night was for my friends from the Reasoning,
chatting and having some beers...
After seeing the Wishing Tree (with Steve Rothery) (nice ambient show) it was time for the Reasoning to support them, awesome! But i already knew tAT.
Marillion Saturday evening.
My last time i saw them was in the eighties and i saw them a lot then. But wen Hogarth came i lost interest. Sorry.
But after i saw the live dvd from London, i was interested again and yep the last album "Hapiness is the road" is Top.
Saw i witnessed a perfect show, great musicians who deliverd a perfect set. And even for me who didn't knew the songs it was high tea time. Hogart is good frontman and fills in his role with souplesse and some dramatical movements. Abslutely worthed to see and enjoy.
Lightshow and sound was great, was really great.

Marillion Weeend '09.
Live in Heerlen 8th of October.
The beautiful theater in Heerlen was loaded with a nice audience, average age 40+.
For me it was the second show (including the Convention in Port Zelande) that i saw this band after Fish left. Ss no i'm not the most biggest fan, but things can change.
The show was highly enjoyable, Steve H. made a lot of jokes and had a nice interaction with the crowd.
The show was acoustic or as H. announced "we took the flesh from the bones, rearranged the bones and put the flesh back on". With so now and then Steve R. playing elletric guitar, Steve H. and Mark Kelly sometimes on keyboards. Indeed the songs were stripped and build up again and sounded really fabulous. Without the full electric sound the guys showed that they are good craftmen and understand their job. Althrough it was sometimes hilarisch to see how Pete touched his xylophoons and Steve H. was busy with his harp. Mark was busy with a kind of harp and clockspiel, but i didn't get the clue what he was doing really.
Steve R. and Pete on acoustic guitars was really top, these two guys can play.
Hope that the band will do more of these kind of small shows, because they have the power to interact on very open and funny way with the audience.
I think they have a new re-born fan ;-)
We did a long interview with Pete. So watch out this space.
Will add photos this weekend. Here is a link to Photos B&W from Jaak Geebelen; excellent!
