Review from 21st July 2012

 

Just got back from this gig (StillMarillion) and was completely overwhelmed by the band. Didn't expect them to be as brilliant as they were.

The musicianship was superb and the singer's voice excellent and a lot like Fish's of that era.

So great to hear the wonderful Marillion music played live so well.

You could tell the whole audience were really into it. Thanks for getting them to make the journey down to Ruislip. They'd certainly be welcome to return.

StillMarillion pay tribute to the classic Eighties "Fish era" of Marillion. Formed in 2008 from a love of the band's early material, the band is comprised of four talented and experienced musicians who accurately recreate the complex, intricate sounds of early Marillion. Together with a vocalist with an authentic Scottish accent who sings the songs with intense passion and emotion, it's a formidable combination.

The band performs a broad selection of tracks from the first four Marillion albums, from the big hit singles such as 'Kayleigh', 'Lavender', 'Incommunicado' and 'Sugar Mice', all the way through to classic album tracks such as 'Script For A Jester's Tear', 'Fugazi' and other forgotten gems.

Performing everywhere from Northern Scotland to Southern England, the ever-growing reputation of the band was enhanced further still in March 2010 with a full album performance of 'Misplaced Childhood', to commemorate the album's 25th anniversary, in front of a packed audience at Glasgow's ABC2 venue. Fans from far and wide travelled to see this stunning show, some from as far afield as Holland.

StillMarillion honour a much-heralded era of music, which is still today so warmly welcomed by prog-rock fans young and old, and will take you on a journey, back to a time of Jesters, Sugar Mice and your own Misplaced Childhood.
