Band Name Origins:

  • They were called Silmarillion, but decided to change their name. Since they had already printed Silmarillion on one of their guitar cases, they thought the easiest and cheapest route would be to just get rid of the 'Sil' part. Leaving them with Marillion. Submitted by: Tim

Do you realize that you could have gone back to her?

Story about this misheard lyric by: Professor Incubus

I always thought that the lyrics was "Do you realize that you could have gone back to her?" because it fit so well with the lyrics that follow which are "But that would only be retraced in all the problems that you ever knew, So untrue." - I might add that I always thought that line was "But that would only be retracing all the problems that you ever knew, So untrue.".

Hidden Messages:

"This Strange Engine"
This is the last track on the album of the same name, but if you keep it running after it finishes there is a long gap followed by some hysterical laughter. It happened because some band members had just got back after a night out and decided to record the lead vocal, but just kept cracking up. It's a bit scary if you're not expecting it to do that at the end of the album
