Between You And Me - A Podcast About Marillion

The Hard Shoulder Part 1

Ep. 112

We're finally digging deep into Marillion's Happiness Is The Road Volume 2: The Hard Shoulder. We manage to cover Thunder Fly and The Man From Planet Marzipan - the latter of which manages to provoke some of the soul searching and strong emotions that we thought we'd managed to avoid this time. We should know ourselves better...
