What gives Fish the right to sit there making rude comments about Bad News? What's his band ever done?

Warriors of Genghis Khan is one of my favourite songs ever. You wait till Purves Grundy gets here.

I wish they'd written a song called 'Worriers of Genghis Khan' instead. It would at least have had potential.

I remember buying Misplaced Childhood from a charity shop for 50p. I was eleven. It was a great relief when I realised that not being able to get into it was not some deficit in my nascent musical appreciation and taste, and was instead because it was unspeakable, overblown shite. Sorry, Hof.

Not at all, Mr. W. You are very much in the majority. I don't actually like that sort of stuff generally, but I've always loved Misplaced Childhood.

It has some great songs on it, but also works perfectly as a complete album, I think.
But I don't expect others to agree.

i've never heard Misplaced Childhood. Marillion were one of the bands courting my favours in the sixth form, as i used to hang out in the prog/heavy corner of the coffee bar on occasion. i might download it tonight, as a kind of dirty little treat.

"Misplaced Childhood" I found to be a little too sacchrine.

Radio 1 broadcasted a couple of their live shows back in the 1980s. Marillion did a particularly good "Sight and Sound in Concert", as I recall.

More of a Clutching At Straws man myself. Shame it was at that point that both warring components of the band hit their lyrical/musical peak, then toiled away separately in increasingly disappointing cul-de-sacs.

I was dragged along to the New Marillion gig last summer at the Astoria. Felt nowt.
