Given that Misplaced Childhood was the first Marillion album i bought, first song ever heard would also be Pseudo Silk Kimono. - I bought the album on the strength of Mark Wilkinson's cover and i don't recall having heard anything from the record prior to the purchase.

First song i actually remember hearing on radio/television was Sugarmice. :D

I knew Kayleigh from my childhood days being played on the radio. However I became a real fan later in the early nineties. the first song was the live version of "Garden Party" from Reel to Reel, whcih was played by the elder brother of a friend of mine while I was visiting their house.

He Knows You Know, saw the video on a music channel when it was released, liked the track and chose to explore the band & have been a fan ever since.

I often wonder how many Marillion fans got into them via Mark Wilkinson's artwork?! :? - Just brilliant covers that practically jump off the shelf at you! - Thankfully, I loved Misplaced Childhood as much as the cover! :)

It was about 20 years ago and I don't remember if it was Incommunicado or Garden Party or Grendel... for some reason I can't quite remember my first encounter with Marillion, which is weird since I remember very well with Rush (was a rap version of Tom Sawyer lol)
