Sloe gin in hand.
Twelve years ago, I had an idea – and we all know how dangerous those can be. Still, I went with it. I was never 100% happy with the result, which is unsurprising given that I had never done anything quite like it before.
To have the opportunity to revisit Marillion/Separated Out was one that couldn’t be missed. There’s an element of déjà vu; the process wasn’t always straightforward, they never are. But the only thing that really matters is the content, which will still be around long after we’re all gone.
A big thank you to all at Foruli for making this edition possible, and for working so hard behind the scenes on the copy, the artwork, the whole package. To all at Racket of course, for initiating the project in the first place and for their support throughout. And to everyone involved in the text, the fans, the collaborators, and (it goes without saying) most of all Marillion, a band which has created the soundtrack for the lives of so many. To quote the preface: “This is your story: I hope I’ve done it justice.”
