Official music video. Credo was the second single, released in December 1991 from "Internal Exile", my second solo album released a few months earlier. The lyrical idea was again a hangover from the Dalnaglar sessions with Marillion in '88 but didn't really come into shape until early '91 soon after the birth of my daughter Tara on January 1st who I can remember cradling in my arms while watching the "shock and awe" of the first Gulf War explode on my TV screen and wondering just what kind of world I had introduced her into. There was a lot of anger in me at that time after a debilitating and expensive legal battle with EMI records that wouldn't conclude until April of that year combined with an ongoing court case with my former band members in Marillion over various financial and other issues. It was a difficult time and I had perhaps foolishly decided to build my own recording studio amongst all this confrontation and the immense drain on my finances in order to give me creative independence away from major labels I had been beholden to. The "Internal Exile" album was the first album to be recorded in my own studios with Chris Kimsey (Misplaced Childhood, Clutching at Straws) producing. As expected the writing sessions had been strained as I came to terms with my "difficult" second solo album during this insanely stressful period. I channelled my anger into the songs and tried to look outward rather than inward. The album became a mixed bag of song subject matters and styles as I was slightly overwhelmed by my freedom and at the same time searching for a new direction and identity. The album had the original title of "Internal Exile - a collection of a boys own stories" with the cover , designed by Mark Wilkinson, reflecting the composition of a book cover of the sort of compendium I used to be given at Christmas when I was younger. "Credo" was born from a certain feeling of helplessness and frustration after watching too much satellite television of a world in chaos. The religious allusion in the lyric harked back to a desperate last ditch dependence on prayer in the face of total adversity and what I knew in reality was the uselessness of it all. The line, "It don't mean nothing" in the lyric was inspired by a scene in the movie "Hamburger Hill" when soldiers created a mantra to deal with the pain of loss of a close comrade. With the first Gulf War raging it seemed apt! It was a question of faith to which I still don't have the answer.

Scottish singer and songwriter Fish has unveiled the striking video for his new single 'Blind To The Beautiful'. Featuring breath-taking imagery, much of it courtesy of Greenpeace, the video shines a light upon the huge ecological disasters that climate change is already bringing to the world. The unfolding scenes of melting glaciers, flooded lands, hurricanes, scorched earth and tragic human devastation is balanced by some spectacular shots of the natural world, reminding us of what we are losing in our relentless quest for progress. The video also features some specially shot footage illustrating the fact that humanity has become blind to the beauty of our planetary home. Some of these segments feature Fish's daughter Tara and include a touching moment with her mother, Fish's ex-wife Tammi, who famously also appeared in Marillion's landmark video for their biggest hit 'Kayleigh', almost 30 years ago. A deeply moving ballad 'Blind To The Beautiful' is one of the finest songs Fish has produced; the mark of an artist maturing through the years with more and more to say. It features backing vocals from Elisabeth Troy (featured vocalist on the new Clean Bandit single 'Heart On Fire' the follow-up to the huge smash hit 'Rather Be'), and violin by Aidan O'Rourke who has just been named Musician Of The Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The single is released in two formats and available to pre-order on iTunes from today: VERSION 1: 'Blind To The Beautiful' (radio edit) / 'Blind To The Beautiful' (live from Karlsruhe), 'Blind To The Beautiful' (demo version) VERSION 2: 'Blind To The Beautiful' (album version) / 'A Feast Of Consequences' (live from Karlsruhe) / 'Perfume River' (live from Karlsruhe) 'Blind To The Beautiful' features upon the album 'A Feast Of Consequences', which is being released in the UK on April 28th. A remarkable collection that is being hailed as the finest of his long and illustrious career, it was produced by Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile/Prefab Sprout). A deluxe version of the album with a 100 page hardback book containing over 80 original illustrations provided by Mark and Julie Wilkinson together with a 3000 foreword by Fish and all the album lyrics is available in a slipcase with the album, a 24 bit FLAC code and a "making of" documentary with live concert footage is available on mail order exclusively through his website - fishheadsclub.com Early reviews have been outstanding, with critics raving about the breadth, drama, musicality and emotion on display throughout the album. "Moving and thought-provoking... a vivid, confident album that stands shoulder to shoulder with his best solo work" - Classic Rock "Graphic and heartfelt to the point of being utterly unmissable. It's certainly amongst the most remarkably powerful pieces of music to be released under Fish's name... Essential" - Prog "Scintillating...atmospheric... a wonderful emotional waltz that only Fish could create" - Fireworks "An immaculately produced album... with hints of Roger Waters' reflective tone" - Record Collector "A fantastic piece of music... just a wonderful album" - Powerplay FISH sets out on a full UK tour in May. 29th September DURHAM, Gala Theatre 30th PRESTON , 53 Degrees 1st October SOUTHAMPTON The Brook ✩6th December EXETER Phoenix ✩7th BRISTOL Fleece ✩8th WOLVES Robin ✩9th CARDIFF Globe ✩11th NORWICH Waterfront ✩12th LONDON Islington Assembly Hall ✩13th NORTHAMPTON Roadmender ✩15th READING Sub 89 ✩16th BRIGHTON Concorde 2 ✩18th HOLMFIRTH Picturedrome ✩19th LIVERPOOL O2 Academy ✩20th SHEFFIELD Ballroom ✩21st GLASGOW ABC Tickets, priced £22.50 can be booked online from www.thegigcartel.com or by calling the 24 hour box office - 0844 478 0898.

So this could be a 500 subscribers special (thank you though :)) and I've decided to make some sort of a timeline showing the history of Marillion and also some photos from the corresponding year. I may add some observations here Note: On 2007 Marillion did kind of a throw-away performance with Fish where they only played Market Square Heroes, on the Market Square in Aylesbury. This is probably the last time ever we see Fish and Marillion perform together Note: Marillion on 1993 only played literally 1 gig Note: I didn't really explain what went before "Silmarillion", because there is very little into it, but you can click this link to see an article with most if not all information we know: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1944873888886125&id=231527856887412 (this facebook page is not mine)
