Where did the time go?
One month of my life changed it for the better. Back in October 1986 I was a regular attender at Hanley Victoria Hall as a spotty faced 18 year old, avid Kerrang reader and heavily into all things Magnum and Bon Jovi related.
Coincidentally both bands played there within a month of each other..and it was the support that stayed in the memory banks...FM!
I remember lights going down and the eerie theme to the Pink Panther theme tune filling the hall, closely followed by some guys bounding onto the stage torches in hand, flashy long coats swirling and a buzz filling the hall. Yes FM were here ladies and gentlemen and boy did they rock.!! Steve could sing and then some, Chris made the guitar wannabee's take note and the Pete was Mr Showman extarordinaire..I was hooked , even the logo was bloody fab. For extra measure they had stage right a Numan-esque keyboardist who wasn't life as we knew it Jim.... just incase if we needed any more talking points!
I duely bought the vinyl INDISCREET and played it to death. Amazing production, crisp sounding, hooks to catch Moby Dick and no fillers!!!
It was my album of choice which I played to anyone who would ( and others who didn't want to) listen.
Before long it was my first record (look it up kids) that needed replacing. I hunted down all the 7' and 12'' singles , the amazing gatefold Frozen Heart, the fan- tastic box set of Let Love Be The Leader ( this gem needs to be added to the live set..surely) and fell in love with the b sides and cover versions that I preferred to the originals!
Life was good..INDISCREET was the soundtrack to my 80's...then 90's and into the naughties...goddamm this album transcended the decades and still sounds relevant, fresh and....FUN (where did that word disappear to...grunge??).
One transgression of that time though. I managed to do something which few managed to ever do.in my neighborhood..get myself barred from a local establishment/ den of iniquity called 'The Sutherland Arms'...puryeyors of choice rock sounds at weekends and home from home of the local Hells Angels- The Outlaws. Now the odd brawl would be brushed off with a handshake and a stern warning, people re-enacting the Kama Sutra in the dingy toilets, frowned upon...but my crime...and punishment by immediate ejection and barring until further notice......scratching the FM monicker on the newly painted( in pea-green )toilet wall!!!
Ha!! All in the name of rock n' roll...all in the name of FM...and most definitely all in the name of Indiscreet!!!
Happy birthday and here's to the next 25 years!!!

First saw FM in Peterborough at the Wirrina, been a huge fan ever since. The boys just rock. Indiscreet I first purchased on cassette and had to stop the car on first playing because it was just so awesome. Knew then that FM would be part of my life forever. Go on tour and do the album live, record it, and put it out Indiscreet live. Keep on Rockin' boyz.

An absolutely brilliant album, I cannot understand why FM did not go on to conquer the world, but 25 years on it looks like you are. This was the soundtrack of us getting together, Jane was born in 1986 so that really was a great year, Steve you have one hellova voice, we sincerely hope that you will tour the UK next year and PLEASE PLEASE do at least two gigs in Scotland. Thanx again for the wonderful albums which are all on my ipod, yours is the only voice that ALWAYS stays on the ipod. Hope to see you next year and cant wait for the new album. Why dont you release a DVD of all your music videos - it would sell thousands, just an idea.

Ahh, memories. I first saw Merv with John Sykes in Streetfighter. as a nerdy 16 year old at Jenks in Blackpool. Saw again with his brief stint on Cantebury tour with Diamond Head. Then along came FM ,saw the Bon Jovi Support & then The Indiscreet tour at Manchester Apollo. The album for me like all classics represents a time capsule that takes me back to the heady days of AOR & the biggest & brightest prospect never to crack the global market. Frozen Heart, That Girl....you all know the songs & I can't wait for whatever the live recording your gonna release.
It was a personal honour to book them for Maximes in Wigan in 93 .Thanks to top chap Pete Way of UFO who recommended the venue to the guys after their earlier appearance. They played both acoustic & then a second electric gig that will stay with me forever. Subsequent shows at Firefest & the Winstanley College gig show that good musicanship never dies & a nicer bunch of guys you couldn't wish to meet. See you soon on the road guys x

Indiscreet still a treasured item in the FM collection, songs are timeless and I have a 3, 6 and 7 year old who sing That Girl. Great to see the band in Glasgow on the last outing. Keep rocking guys!!

Indiscreet should have been HUGE! Came out the same year as Journey's Raised On Radio and was far superior.
Ever since the beginning there has been no ego trips with this band.Just down to earth guys playing brilliant music and interacting with their fans.
Whenever we have met them after a gig they are more than willing to have a drink,chat and sign autographs.
I'll be down the front with the old Zimmerframe in another 25 years time.Rock on and keep the British Melodic Rock flame burning brightly!

i will never forget to day i got the LP got it home and was blown away! i now have ALL the LPs CDs 7 10 & 12 and pictrue singles most you all signed. but still need the odd one doing. i came twice to the "indiscreet tour". Then years later you did "unpluged tour" saw you in wigan for that one. the came to see you twice last year - in birmingam then manchester. i met you all in birmingham after the show but in manchester i became very ill near the end of the gig so only the rest of my family got to meet you again..... i cant wait for the next CD and new tour... sadly i cant make butlins...

SEE YOU ALL SOON "I HOPE"

oh the memories i have , right from the first time i went to see jovi at the birmingham odeon in nov 86 , watching fm and walking back to digbeth singing she left me with a broken heart full voice with my sis, with us both saying how great the support band were , ,(ok i had got the lyrics wrong but hey i was singing out of tune too lol )knowing they were genuine guys on and off the stage ,
then seeing fm in digbeth when the stage collapsed and a certain mr jupp still dancing on the amps as they swayed, what a looney lol , several gigs later , and realising my voice hadnt got any better un like mr overland who just gets better and better , , buying the album , then the cd as it jumped of the shelf and landed into my hand , seeing fm at the alex theatre in birmingham when you all got out at taxi to the stage door right in front of me , and my best friend splitting his trousers jumping a seat to shake petes hand ,.. many shows later, the albums , the memories, and a few years inbetween , i can now write this a little older but not much wiser, saying iam so grateful i went out on that cold november night to see aband whose songs would stay with me forever , until we meet again face to face ,in birmingham hopefully , thankyou for everything and so much more than you will ever know to not just me but so many , cheers guys

I first saw FM supporting Bon Jovi on the Slippery When Wet tour .. this started a 25 year musical love affair with the Band… i've been lucky enough to meet the guys on several occasions, and can honestly say , never will you meet such a great band ...
Guys , seriously THANK YOU for the last 25 years or excellent music , the ups the downs , the tears (Frozen Heart) the joy of being in the crowd singing "Heart To Heart"... the sharing of a pint on occasion and my prized possession , my signed , framed copy of "Tough It Out"
Thank You :))
