Fish biography
Derek William Dick - Born 25 April 1958 (Dalkeith, Scotland)

Because he finds it very nice to lie in the bath for hours, with his rubber duck, he gets this nickname from his friends: FISH. Later Derek shall use this name as his artists name. Derek grows up in the little village Dalkeith, where his parents have a garage. He's in school there, where he has a easy time, and has good results. Derek too is a fan of THE BEATLES in that period, and he wants to learn to play an instrument. But he never gets beyond playing a tennis racket in front of the mirror. The first single he buys is "Lola" of THE KINKS.

Daddies' garage is becoming a better and better way of way of earning a living and Derek is allowed to go to high school (which is far more expensive). Derek isn't so satisfied with that and prefers to stay in Dalkeith. When Derek is about 13 years old, he becomes more and more interested in music. Especially groups like YES, ELP and of course PINK FLOYD are his favorites. He likes the idea of having a band of his own. But his problem is that he cannot play any instrument. He tries drumming, but that's not so easy as it seems to. There's only one thing that Derek can do without many problems: singing. And this is the beginning of his career. Derek studies a lot by singing along with his favorite songs of YES, ELTON JOHN, and DEEP PURPLE.

Derek is getting older, and school becomes less and less interesting for him. He discovers the nightlife, and begins to enjoy life more and more. When he's 18 and ready with high school, he still doesn't know exactly what to do. He doesn't like university, and therefore he takes a job at the Forestry Commission. There he has the opportunity to do a building engineering study, something he likes because that would mean spending a lot of time outside. In 1979 he leaves for a study journey to Germany. When he gets back, he decides to become a singer at last. Derek changes his name to FISH. Not in the latest place because the off-stage nickname of Chris SQUIRE is also FISH. When he meets Peter GABRIEL after a concert, and this guy turns out to be a normal human being, FISH thinks "then I can do it too". FISH looks for a band, and after a failed audition for NOT QUITE RED FOX, comes across BLEWITT thanks to an old friend. Although the band does not play FISH's favorite music, he becomes their singer. FISH gets a lot experience on stage and thanks to that his performance and his voice both increase in q...

Weltschmerz
Fish Neo-Prog

Review by thesimilitudeofprog

4 stars It has been a long time in the making but Fish has finally released his final album 'Weltschmerz'. If this is indeed Fish's last studio album, he leaves us with a masterpiece. The word 'Weltschmerz' translates as a feeling of melancholy in a world of weariness. This album was created against a backdrop of unprecedented world events, shocks and challenges making the artistic achievement more impressive.

Grace of God in my opinion is one of Fish's better album openers. This song resonates with many of Fish's multi-movement pieces but this one is impressive because it builds so well and so naturally. Often with expansive prog pieces the way movements segue into another can become clunky or disjointed. Grace of God is a fine example of a song growing seamlessly with a clear purpose. Next up is a song called Man with A Stick. This song has a wonderful blend of old and new. Following Man with A Stick we have a song called Walking on Eggshells. A song about a torched relationship that should end but will not. The arrangements on Walking on Eggshells carries you on a journey. There are great moments of fine detail, and the vocals from Fish are flawless. This party's over is special song. This farewell song is both joyful and sad. It is a goodbye, but it is also a call to arms that we still need to fix our world. On the fifth track on the album Rose of Damascus, Fish delivers his greatest lyrical performance in years. The album standout for me is track 6 a song called Garden of Remembrance. It has one of the most powerful music videos I have seen in a long time. Garden of Remembrance is a poignant song with great emotional power and depth. The song references the issues of Alzheimer's and its deep emotional impact on family and loved ones. Anyone who has experienced Alzheimer's and Dementia in their family will be drawn into this song and will relate immediately with the depth and the power conveyed by the song and the video. Following Garden of Remembrance, we have a song called C Song (The Trondheim Waltz). This song has a real folk feel and references Fish's Scottish roots. After C Song (The Trondheim Waltz) what is probably going to be a fan favorite, Little Man What Now? This is reportedly inspired by his father's passing. This song this is a definite highlight on the album. Another highlight on this album is Waverley Steps (End of the Line). It brings together all the nuanced skills of Fish's sustained career. It has a powerful moving poetic narrative. On the title track Weltschmerz Fish masterfully brings together the mix of genres, styles and influences that define what the solo chapter of his musical career has been about. Weltschmerz stands as the best album of Fish's solar career and easily amongst the best of this year by anyone.

Rating-88%

Recommended Tracks: Grace of God, Rose of Damascus, Garden of Remembrance, Waverley Steps (End of the Line) & Weltschmerz.

Review by AgeofMadness

2 stars I have been a Fish fan since I first heard You Know he Knows on the radio way back in 1983. I was crushed when he left Marillion but his solo albums for the most part have been excellent, yes I know Fish writes great lyrics and has a great voice but he knows that you need cool guitar solos and a blend of guitar and keyboards. Most of his albums are like that and his masterpiece as far as I'm concerned were 13th star and A Feast of Consequence.

So I was freaking out waiting for this last album Weltschmerz especially when I saw some quite long songs, 15 minutes is pretty long for Fish. I was expecting some guitar solos or some heavy guitar sounds.To say I was a little shocked when I started listening was an understatement. Was this a Fish album or elevator music.

I'm very disappointed with it. I've listened to it 5 or 6 times and no it does not grow on me. After Steve Vantsis helped write all those cool songs on 13th star and parts of A Feast of Consequences how could he just fall flat on Weltschmerz, even Boult helped Vantsis on A Feast of Consequence with some songs and he also seems lost. Like where did all the good music go? So it's too bad but it looks like Fish is going out with a whimper. If you like good music to go along with good lyrics, this album is not for you.

Review by gbjones

4 stars Upon rating this a "4" I want to say that it is slightly less than a "4", just like Consequences is a bit more than a "4". Consequences, as a Fish album, finally contained material on a par with material found in the early Marillion albums for which he is so famous. Weltschmerz, in my mind, contains no such material. The signature songs - Grace of God, Remembrance, Rose, Little Man, and Waverley are all excellent songs, but close to 25 minutes of that material was already released on an EP in 2018, which is bound to disappoint anyone who already has the EP in possession. One commentator pointed out that this album isn't prog, but sort of a prog 2.0; rather one should ask if the shorter tracks are aimed at sort of a "pop 2.0" rather than prog at all. So, consider it a"4" because otherwise it is technically well executed and contains material that you must have if you are a fan of Fish and/or Marillion.

Review by Squire Jaco

4 stars Good new album!

I've never been the most faithful fan of Fish, loving much of what he did on the early Marillion albums "Script", "Childhood", and especially "Clutching" ("Fugazi"...not so much...); and his work on some of the Tony Banks solo shtuff was great. Then I took a chance a couple of years ago on his compilation cd "Bouillabaisse" and was really impressed. So I thought I'd give his new one "Weltschmerz" (World Pain) a listen.

I really like it. His vocals are great on this, sounding like an older Phil Collins(?), which is weird as I always thought his younger voice was more similar to Peter Gabriel. And the songwriting is fresh and original, albeit in the Marillion/Genesis vein in many places. The most proggy song is the nearly 14 minute "Waverley Steps (End of the Line)". A couple of songs were on the edge of skippable for me first time through - "Man With a Stick" and "This Party's Over". I thought that they could have been left off of this 84-minute album and it would have been just fine. But subsequent listens have softened me to even those two songs. Leave 'em alone...

This is good stuff overall. And not nearly as downtrodden as a title like Weltschmerz might indicate. 4 stars seems about right.

Review by zedumar

3 stars The suits fit me well After de disappointment from the two previous albums, Internal exiles (2 stars) and Songs from the Mirror (one star), the Fish is rising again! Suits is a more personal, creative, and inspired album where you can feel that Fish is more comfortable and regained confidence. Let us point out that Fish's solo career is not as progressive as the previous years at Marillion and listen to it with an open mind. I especially like the songs Suits, Raw Meat, Lady let it lie, Fortunes of war, somebody special. Finally, this album convinced me to keep exploring the solo career of such a great singer and poet! I rate it 3,5 stars.

Review by zedumar

2 stars I have been revisiting Marillion and Fish during these pandemic COVID-19 times. I found myself astonished by Vigil in the wilderness of mirrors, but disappointed with the next solo effort from FISH, named Internal Exiles. There is a clear new direction, free and easy listening, yet less progressive, and since this is a progressive rock forum, this album would not be an important audition to prog-rockers. Fish's voice still magnificent and there are quite good songs, my favorite is the opening track SHADOWPLAY. Credo and just good friends are also interesting tracks, but I lose my interest as a listen to the next tracks, which are more pop directed. Some songs just look like fillers and I can't get attracted to it like Favorite Stranger. I rate it 2 stars.

Review by Kingsnake

4 stars An EP with over 30 minutes of new music. These three tracks are a teaser to the new album Weltschmerz wich will be released in 2019. Also this EP is meant to introduce new songs for the upcoming tour.

The three songs are outstanding, written by longtime bandmembers Vantsis and Boult, and have strong symphonic/progressive elements, both giving Fish room for his storytelling lyrics and room for instrumental passages and solos by Foss Patterson and Robin Boult.

Man with a Stick is a midtempo rocker with nice keyboards and a groovy rhythm. It is very catchy and could be a hitsingle.

Little Man is pure neoprog, wich could have been a Marillion song, complete with horns, backing voals, string section, extended keyboard- and guitarsolos. It is almost 14 minutes long and is truly an epic song.

Waverley Steps is a doomy gloomy song, reminiscent of Chelsea Monday and various Fish-solo songs. It takes a while to build up, but never gets boring. Great sax by David Jackson gives the song a great atmosphere.

The four included livetracks are nice although a little tame. They are included because Fish will not play them on tour.

All in all, thies EP lasts 50 minutes, wich is is a treat. I give 5 stars to the new songs and 3,5/4 stars for the live tracks. So this EP wil get 4 stars.

Highly recommended!

5 stars Fish is a strong character, not surprising in view of his taciturn Scottish heritage as well as the tortuous tribulations that seemingly spare no one, such as love, health and money troubles that many suffer through at one moment or another in their lives' journey. Suffice to say , his previous work, 'The 13th Star' was a fine return to form, after a series of good but not really exceptional albums, proving once again that heartache is a 'perfect nightmare' , a grand source of inspiration and a liquid fuel for the pen. The big man was always a great lyricist and exceptional live showman, so hearing him still writing and composing thrilling music is a bonus for any prog fan to admire. He has a sharp mind and sharper sense of motivating configurations such as irony, sarcasm, bitter truth and a hint of bile.

This release gets off the ground with the longest piece, a nearly 11 minute epic that proves his audacity as well as rejoining with a proggier sensibility that bodes well for the rest of the album as well as for the future. The odorous 'Perfume River' rolls along majestically, little hints of Paradise City from Guns & Roses ('take me down to the Perfume River' !?), sweeping synthesized keys add the necessary doom and gloom, ably handled by Foss Patterson a Fish veteran. Speaking of past cronies, Robin Boult is back manning the guitars and he must be the most underrated axe slinger in music by a country mile. Steve Vantsis handles the fluid bass and the marvelous Gavin Griffiths thumps the drums, he being among the best the UK has to offer as proved by his contributions to Mostly Autumn and Panic Room, among many others. A perfect entrance into matters that shed light on impressive words and astounding sounds. Fish is a tremendous bellower, armed with a voice that went through some recent deep throat surgery and all sounds fine. One of his best performances ever. Brrrrrilliant!

The balls to the walls approach on 'All Loved Up' is not my favorite style but, hey its only rock 'n roll after all, so let bygones be bygones and enjoy the ride, as it has a little punky style (nasty little clavinet in the background) that is ready to sign any contract and damn the torpedoes, a characteristic of this impulsive yet sensitive man, who lives and dies by his sword. The slithering mid-section has its 'own destiny', self-deprecating comments on fame and fortune. He sardonically mocks the 'in crowd' and 'the beautiful people', tossing in some F words to boot.

After the storm, the sun, as a ballad is needed to soothe the frizzled fur and segue additional commentary about that notion of beauty. 'I just can't see the beautiful anymore' he intones in his usual expert delivery. Aidan O'Rourke's violin only amplifies the sad lament. The lyrics again reveal what many fans know already, the man can write devastatingly effective yet simple poetry. Lovely!

The title track exemplifies his current 'state of mind' (slick, Thomas, slick) , a man who just does not feel inclined to give up and hide, boldly standing back up after every knock down, the lyrics here address these harrowing vicissitudes and his resolve to defend his sanity. As a fellow romantic, I take solace in his incredible strength and a source of inspiration to constantly thrive emanates from his work.

A five-song anti-war suite is next, once again stamping 'prog' credentials all over his song writing, as exemplified by the John Bonham-like thud on 'High Wood', propelled by some fiery guitar riffs and bombastic contours , Fish and Liz Antwi intertwining their lungs to better evoke the inflamed words. Boult shows some colossal grit and restraint, while Fish tosses in some German commentary (like he did with 'Manchmal'). The booming 'Crucifix Corner' just takes the mood to another level, a variation on the previous flow, a rambling discourse on the futility of endless conflict, a classic theme that he has approached many times before with great success. The orchestrations are truly grandiose, the beat relentless and the melodic passion is kicked around with strategic flair. This is great music from a resourceful poet and musician. The military marching band carousel revives old patriotic manipulations on 'the Gathering' , rallying the poor bastards to willingly give their lives for some form of King and Country and the 'promise of a Brave New World' that we all know will never happen. Armor, glory, surrender and family, all blended together by the sausage churning military-industrial complex propaganda. Goodbye youth and innocence, promises broken. 'Thistle Alley' conveys more forbidding afterthoughts, wounded corpses dancing under the Florence Nightingale candles, more hefty drumming (war and ballistic drums, hmmmm) and Fish really involving himself into the revolting 'danse macabre' carnage. This brutal onslaught takes no prisoners, the darkness is omnipresent and sensationally executed. Yeah, it's heavy! Orchestral confines marshal the battlefield, with more angry musings about thrust and counter-thrust, as 'the generals count the casualties', Fish has managed to address the futility of war in a convincing, lyrically enthralling manner that, unfortunately after 'Je suis Charlie', we all know it will never go away, humans are just not advanced yet to coexist in peace, the world will never be either 'Brave' nor 'New'. Just the usual cycle of evil and love. A perfect finale.

The sincerity drips on 'Other Side of Me', a ballad that shows another side of our Wedgeman, a heartwarming inner vision that opens up his soul for perusal, which is what any true fan would want! Still dealing with the pain of his near marriage to Heather Findlay, he remains a romantic giant, a bolder Bryan Ferry (the two have actually a lot of common virtues but we won't get into that today), not surprising then that they are my top two vocalists/lyricists. A simply gorgeous song.

'The Great Unravelling' serves as the ideal finale to a near perfect album, another dream laid bare, a modern percussive sheen, a sorrowful veneer and all drenched in evocative yet muscular music. A wailing Antwi performs amazingly in tandem with Monsieur Poisson, the passion overt and mercurial, 'ushered into the light' and a phenomenal ending, suave guitar solo and a confident , unbroken and courageous artist ready to face the next challenge ahead.

You are a hero, Mr Derek Dick.

Prog Reviewer

2 stars Who are those anonymous blockheads that give full rates to releases that are obviously quite poor? I'll be very short, in fact I wouldn't bother to write about this DVD at all if there weren't those foolish ratings that in my sincere opinion have so badly gone wrong. A week ago I bought both of dubiously re- released Krakow DVD's from library at 1 euro each. [As I realized later with my friends, the DVD of the electric set was faulty: it featured only seven tracks instead of 18 or so that were listed. The visual quality wasn't very good, and the 1995 concert itself nothing special either - and of course the most interesting tracks such as 'Fugazi' weren't on my DVD.]

This acoustic set then was even bigger let-down musically. By the way, also a CD of the same content was included. I listened to it quickly (using skip button several times) and felt that it's totally useless extra. At this point I hadn't checked the DVD's and didn't yet know I wouldn't care to save them either to myself. This set of nine songs (total length was few minutes below an hour) has both some rather boring songs and some well known - even classic - songs: 'Kayleigh', 'Lavender' and 'The Company' would be the top 3 in here. But now we come to the crucial question: how good are the live versions? Frankly, this acoustic gig sounds just tired. As someone else said, as we had changed this DVD into the player, the acoustic approach brings no extra interest to the songs. Fish's voice is far from good shape. Camera work is cheap. There's no way to rate this any higher than two stars, and even that probably has one star too many. Also the layout is terribly cheap looking. Avoid!

4 stars Fish Swansong - a Feast of lyrics and creativity

If this is Fish's final studio effort it surely is a great way to bow out. The acoustic element is given prominence and the well-crafted lyrics are music to the ears - well written and provide an extra dimension to the delivery of the songs and the intended messages.

Prog lovers will enjoy Perfume River and the adventurous High Wood Suite - the songs are appreciated more and more by repeated listenings.

Lovers of melody would prefer All Loved Up and the title track A Feast Of Consequences.

The high piece is the very original The Great Unravelling - lyrics and song writing just blend in together perfectly to deliver a highly emotive and expressive original composition.

The band is tight and delivers well - whilst the female voice balances well with Fish's original vocal delivery. He knows his voice is no longer what it used to be and thus uses it intelligently to guaratee good song delivery.

His lyric writing skill is exceptional and very original. I have never come across anyone who can put together his thoughts in such an intense manner. Why has he not yet ventured into the world of book writing? What is he waiting for?

I wouldn't compare this album to Sunsets On Empire however - it's very different. Together with 13th Star i place this up there with his best creative efforts. Great artwork from Mark Wilkinson and sharp production by Calum Malcolm.

An excellent package.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
