Marillion = Pionners of neo prog - No, it's not true about Marillion (perfect album at wrong timing) Why?
By carying the torch of prog in 1983, Marillion & few other bands from the 70's was able to give some hope to proggers, by creating a kind of trust that progressive rock was created to carry on.
The impact of the SCRIPT... wasn't, in my humble opinion, for the 80's. In fact it was for now. I'm a 54 years old pilot, crazy about progressive music in general, but, I have nothing against bands contaminated by new wave, running on empty, at that time. I was nearly unsatisfied by approximatly 80% of so called prog in the 80's.
In fact btn 1982-1989 there was no productivity at all for the major bands, namely, (floyd - separeted) Yes , E.L.P , Genesis , Tull , etc... this diversion caused by many reasons, for ex , market necessities of that period, major changes in label companies, the new wave & punk influence created in england (without exportation to Europe & America), all these facts gave to new born bands such as Marillion, the credit of holding the torch of progressive up till now.
I had the chance twice in London, once in Copenhagen, once in Hamburg, to witness these giants in action (performing) Surely not Script ... and, to be honest in this review regarding the DVD, it took me 1012 flights to Europe as a pilot, visiting 112 cities of Europe & the Middle East to discover what Marillion did back in 1983.
They said no to the status quo of that period, we want to carry a humble message to the next generations of prog, by carying this torch. So, they did with some few others.
By trespassing the red line created by the market needs, Jester was the big boooom for all proggers around the world, and, the impact created at that time still have the same effect up till now.
For bands like Marillion, decisions in this matter was really challenging, fighting for surviving in the middle of a kaos where everything real is unreal, and for real proggers, it's no more a battle, it's war.
So, to tell the truth, I was really opset by 80% by so called prog releases btn 83-89. Jester with few other releases came as a relief that time.
I'm proud to be a Lebanese progger, folwng every single detail in that matter, and the good point is, that i use to have both videos (Jester & Brave) video VHS versions, but now, i do have both on DVD it's really amazing after a long hold to get what yu really always wanted.
As a matter of fact, I'm the witness that gives the credit in holding that torch of prog to bands like Marillion, and, I believe that the truth lives in each one of yu dear friends.
Thanking GOD & Marillion for this precious gift, so, enjoy proggers the good team work.
