MARILLION - 30 Years Misplaced Childhood
The starting point of the album, which changed everything and without which according to keyboarder Mark Kelly "Marillion would no longer exist in its present form", is to be found in late summer '84: After the exhausting "Fugazi" tour, Marillion initially took a two-month break. Although they sketched some initial ideas for a new album here and there, they used this phase to recharge their batteries for the upcoming tasks. And they had it in them. The band had got wind of their label EMI playing with the idea of terminating the contract with them.
