1Marillion is one of those bands whose name is unfashionable even to mention. They are worse than unknown, they are formerly known. To be seen enjoying their music is extraordinarily brave. Each new record deal has come on less pleasant terms than the last but Marillion have one thing going for them: a passionate following of fans on the Web.
