Concerto definitely, if you're into vinyl check out Record Friend on Sint Antoniesbreestraat - behind Nieuwmarkt, they have two shops on the same street, one for new stuff and one for second hand.

Nice guy as well. I remember in the 80's, pre-internet, me and some mates would write to quite a few upcoming bands to get info. Most of them, especially the LA ones, wouldn't even bother replying. Ken sent us a great letter and also enclosed a copy of the (then unreleased) first Shout album.

150 isn't a lot for a Marillion fan, I know people who've been to at least 4 times as many gigs as me and ones who haven't missed a single gig in the last ten years......I am but a rank amateur.

My favourite band, seen them once with Fish and well over 150 times with Steve Hogarth (who also took my wife and I's marriage vows in 2011) When Fish left I went with him and didn't get back into the band until 1996 when I was in a serious auto accident and got my mum to bring me copies of Brave & Afraid Of Sunlight to listen to in hospital. I feel like they've matured (and I guess, me

Think it's a good idea to start with Afraid Of Sunlight, it and Brave are my favourite Marillion albums. Brave can be a lot to take in at once though. If you want different then try Radiation, probably their most unpopular album at the time of release, heavily influenced by Britpop, but a lot of people (including me) have reassessed it and now think it's a great album. My top 5 are -

I love the sound on the Radiation remix but I'm not a big fan of some of the edits, it's taken out a lot of what made R10 a bit quirky and so on for me......

Musically it's great, lyrically / story wise I keep thinking of a bunch of high school students doing their own version of We Will Rock You - will persevere with it though.

I'm the other way, I still love the Fish albums, they're basically the soundtrack of my youth, but I prefer the stuff they've done with H. And H married me so what else can I say ? :-)

The only full band show he's doing AFAIK is the Melkweg in Amsterdam on the 26th March. Saw Anneke on Sunday night doing an intimate acoustic gig about 5 minutes walk from my front door - was fantastic :-)

Rip everything in lossless format to a NAS drive so I can stream it around the house, for mobile I usually just grab my iPod, mostly listen to the radio in the car at the moment. Also have a Sonos system in the living room that I use with the aforementioned NAS, Spotify and Google Play (got a 6 month trial with the Sonos)
