Friday September 16, 1988 was a black day for Marillion fans. Fish
announced that he had left Marillion to start a solo career. It was
explained in a letter to the fanclub:

        "During the process of writing the new album it became apparent
        that differences, both musically and lyrically, between Fish and
        the rest of the band were irreconcilable"

Fish said:

        "I've had a brilliant 7 years with Marillion; however, recently the
        musical directions of the band have diversified to such an extent
        I realised the time had come to embark on a solo career"

The Fish-era was ended with the release of "The Thieving Magpie" which was
a double live album with tracks from 1982-1988, a thank-you to the fans.
