Description

About how Fish and Marillion used the new Web to their advantage in many innovative ways

FISH The fairy falls with broken wings; I hold it close to me and then let it fly, Another dream, another you, shattered splintered shards explode in the blue.

The fairy falls with broken wings; I hold it close to me and then let it fly, Another dream, another you, shattered splintered shards explode in the blue.

Once upon a time Growing up with Fish or Fish/ Marillion and the Web

My life changed on 81 when I walked into my favourite music LP store http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtyqAn1McUE There was a new LP, a new band, with new kind of music I did not know it could exist. Their name: Marillion, their charismatic singer: Fish

But it was not only the music http://www.the-masque.com/ The website behind the artwork of Marillion Mark Wilkinson

Back then listening to music was like drinking wine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25AkxTjiSJ8 to listen an old marillion vinyl on a real turntable

Times were different then...

It was the time of Bootlegs sold under the table and for loads of Sfr

Musicians had strange Make-Up

We looked different too, those days

Kayleigh changed it all to BIG http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwNVfNc1IQM&feature=related Kayleigh became Marillion’s first and only top chart single and made progressive music again mainstream

But too much success is never good One ore album and Marillion and Fish split up. They both went in different musical directions but in ONE thing they were same

.Com Both Marillion and Fish understood fast that the Internet opens new possibilities for musicians The “long tail” helps to reach every devoted fan of progressive music The Internet helped to create and nurture fan communities Viral marketing started to kick in
