Chances are, many of you have heard of Marillion. You know, Kayleigh, the lot? Well, no. Many years have passed, many a change has been made, but Marillion are still around, recording spectacular albums and winning over a new generation. They are also the musical pioneers of the Internet: in 1997 they gathered $61k through their mailing list to fund a tour of the US; in 2001 their fans financed the recording of Anoraknophobia, raising over £100k. Always keen on reaching out their fans and those not yet converted, Marillion have now announced a competition in which you make their video.
Of course, it wouldnt be a competition without a prize. And so Marillion are offering £5k to the person who will make the best Marillion music video. It is really quite simple you make the video to their latest song, post it on Youtube, and the video that gets most views will win. Yes, thats right, none of this band chooses their favourite malarkey. Qui
