Marillion – Fugazi
Marillion are a British rock band, formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in 1979. They emerged from the post-punk music scene in Britain and existed as a bridge between the styles of punk rock and classic progressive rock, becoming the premier neo-progressive rock band of the 1980s. Fugazi is their second studio album, released in 1984. Produced by Nick Tauber, it was recorded between November 1983 and February 1984 at various studios and was the first to feature drummer Ian Mosley, following the dismissal of the band’s original drummer Mick Pointer. According to AllMusic, the album “streamlined the intricacies of the group’s prog rock leanings in favour of a more straight-ahead hard rock identity”. Built upon the success of its predecessor, Script for a Jester’s Tear, Fugazi reached the UK Top 5 and went Gold.
