QuoteI used to like Marillion in the mid-80s and went to see them 3 times. They were supported by a band called Beltane Fire, who i thought were quite good. I don't think they went on to bigger things and i was wondering if anyone else ever heard of them, or knows what happened to them?
QuoteI remember seeing them support Marillion on the Misplaced Childhood tour. They were sort of celtic-y type rock if I remember correctly. As far as I know, they only released the one album, but I stand to be corrected.
QuoteI saw Beltane Fire twice supporting the Marillos on that tour - actually liked them considerably better than the headliners (my then GF was a big Marillion fan, which was why I went).I bought their album, called Different Breed, and a subsequent 12" EP, Captain Blood.My abiding memories were that they were all big lads, the bassist played a stand-up bass, and they seemed fixated with Arthurian mythology!And - a little Google fiddling reveals:http://www.mrbluestrain.com/rock.htmWell - that explains the double bass!And the plot thickens....http://www.rockabilly.nl/artists/bluecats.htmIt's the same band, believe it or not!
