"Perhaps Fish's greatest talent lies in his lyric writing. His introspective lyrics, often dealing with his own personal problems and addictions, can in many cases be considered fine poetry..." – Steve Johnson

"A dynamic personal presence, both off and on stage..." - IMDB

"Few artists have achieved near-mythic cult status in the way that Scottish singer-songwriter Fish has." – HIP

"...being at one of his gigs is like being entertained by a boisterous host at a particularly loud private party." - Graeme Smith, S1play

Derek William Dick alias FISH erlangte 1981 erste Bekanntheit als Sänger der britischen Rockgruppe Marillion, mit welcher er unter anderem die beiden Top-Ten-Hits “Kayleigh, Lavender” und “Incommunicadolandete. Nach 7 Jahren und insgesamt vier Studio- & zwei Livealben verließ Derek 1988 die Band und startete seine Solokarriere.

Doch Derek begeistert als FISH nicht nur mit seiner Musik. Neben gelegentlichen Auftritten in britischen Fernsehproduktionen moderierte er zwischen März und Juni 2007 die Radio-Show „Fish on Fridays“ beim britischen Digital-Radiosender Planetrock.com.

Sein neuestes Album "Weltschmerz", das sich als sein letztes angekündigt, soll 2020 erscheinen.

Derek William Dick, encore connu sous le nom de FISH, a acquis la célébrité en 1981 en tant que chanteur du groupe de rock britannique Marillion, avec lequel il a sorti les hits « Kayleigh, Lavender » et « Incommunicado ». Après 7 ans et un total de quatre albums studio et deux albums live, Derek quitte le groupe en 1988 et décide de débuter sa carrière solo.

En 2013, il en était déjà à son 10e album, ‘Feast of Consequences’, qui a eu des excellentes recensions de la part des critiques, mais avant tout de sa fidèle communauté de fans. L’album a été élu meilleur album depuis sa toute première œuvre solo ‘Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors’. En 2015, FISH a annoncé sa retraite la de scène musicale pour 2020, et a entamé sans attendre sa tournée ‘Farewell to Childhood’, fêtant le 30e anniversaire de son album ‘Misplaced Childhood’.

Mais FISH est loin d’inspirer seulement par sa musique. Outre des apparitions occasionnelles dans des émissions télévisées britanniques, il a animé l'émission radio « Fish on Fridays » à la webradio britannique Planetrock.com entre mars et juin 2007.

Son dernier album "Weltschmerz", qui sera probablement son dernier, est prévu de sortir en 2020.

 In 2020, Scottish prog rock legend Fish will celebrate three decades in music by launching his final studio album, “Weltschmerz”, in May before embarking on an extensive European tour in the autumn.

FISH released his debut solo album, “Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors”, in 1990 – two years after leaving Marillion, the band he had fronted to enormous success (global hit “Kayleigh”). And what a debut!

Soaring to the Top 10 of Europe’s album charts, the release kick-started a long and successful solo career for FISH. The 10 albums that followed were in the same mould, always counted on to cause a stir and polarise audiences.

FISH has always been among the very best-known figures in progressive rock. The charismatic Scot is adept at capturing his audiences, holding them in the palm of his hand. Perhaps because FISH has always remained true to himself, never betraying his principles or bowing to constraints. His music is a byword for authenticity, quality and creativity that leave the mainstream far behind.

May 2020 will see the release of ”Weltschmerz”, the latest and last studio album by FISH. “Weltschmerz” will be the final chapter in his long musical career. His live tour will also close the circle; FISH will perform both his debut album, “Viril in a Wilderness of Mirrors”, and his last album. A standout milestone in a powerfully passionate career, and a fitting tribute of thanks to his fans – the Fishheads – who have been loyal to him since the early 1980s.
