Wow...25 years ago, can´t believe it. I was in my sweet 20s!!!;-)) I was studying law in Saarbrücken, Germany, living together with three guys in a small flat just besides the campus. Every night I was sitting together with one of the guys listening to his tapes filled with mostly ballads. One night I listened to a new song from an for me completely unknown band from the UK...it was FM´s "Frozen Heart"!!!! That song touched me immediately...goose bumps everywhere, incredible!!! Fantastic production, great melody and of course what a voice!!! The next day I went to the local record dealer to buy the single and the album "Indiscreet". Til today one of my all time favourite albums!!!! Later on I had the chance to buy the "Tough it out" album, which I love, too, and that it was for me for a long time regarding FM. Nothing very much to be heard of them in Germany, no new records etc. I thought!!! At the beginning of the 90s I got internet and had to find out that these guys had produced some more albums which were not available in Germany these days. So I collected everything via the www by contacting second hand dealers in the UK...with much success in the end!!! Til then I stayed in touch with what the guys were doing and have had the luck and honour to turn from a huge fan (which I still am!!!) to a friend of the band!!! Who would have guessed when I was sitting in Saarbrücken listening to "Frozen Heart" and the "Indiscreet" album for the first time??? No one...;-))) To make a long story short today I just want to say thank you, guys, for all the fantastic music you created over the years...it very often has helped me through some tough times ("Only the strong survive", you know!!!) and will always do I am pretty sure!!! Last but not least i just want to thank you for your friendship...I am honored!!!!! Up the irons for another fantastic 25 years!!!!

Bought LP back in 1987. I hope you will play complete LP in London in 2012. Few fans from Slovenia will be there.

Between 1985 and 1995 I saw FM 22 times. I haven't seen them since their come back but I hope to in 2012.

Here, I shall give you three of my memories.

The first time was in September 1985 at the Ipswich Gaumont and they were supporting Gary Moore and on the saturday, same week,Phil Lynott came on and played Parisian Walkways, Military man and Out in the Fields. It was the The first time I had seen Steve and Chris play since Wildlife had supported Michael Schenker at the Hammy Odeon in 1983, and the first and last time Ihad seen Phil Lynott since Grand Slam at the Marquee 1984. Sadly, missed day by day.Their memories will never go.

The second memory FM were playing the Town and Country,Kentish Town in about 1991/92.

Supporting them were Little Angels and Thunder. Little Angels and Thunder both had singles in the charts but FM didn,t.

It just goes to show you how popular FM were then and always will be.

My third memory is Brixton academy, 1989.

It was the video shoot for the single ' Someday '. It was my first and last time that I had ever been to a video shoot.It was a shame that there wasn't more people there, but, it was midweek. Saying that, I loved every Second of It. I watch it on FM youtube whenever I can.

I can't wait for the new FM release next year!

Finally, I will leave you with my favourite Wildlife song title, ' Rock and Roll dreams' will never die.

Will never forget. Saw FM supporting Quo in 1991. It was the first and only time a support act had such an effect on me. I went out the next day and bought Indiscreet, Tough It Out, Taking It To The Street (TITTS lol) and the Grapevine single.

Every time another chance came up to see the boys, I thought "next time". Suddenly, there wasn't a next time.

When I saw they were coming back, there was no way I'd make the same mistake again. I've met some great new friends since the comeback - let's have another tour soon chaps!

Saw this band a few times in the early eighties.Supporting bands like Magnum and i think Maiden? but i could be wrong (memory goes when you get in your 40's) after that i didnt really hear alot from them,thought they'd dissapeared into the ether like quite a few from around that time.Anyroad saw them last year at Hard Rock Hell in Prestatyn and for me they were the best band we saw the whole week-end! Dont forget there were some great bands there,Saxon,U.F.O.MSG etc(.so much so ive already booked again for this year). Tight,note perfect and what a fantastic voice Steve has,superb set.I went home and transfered the old Albums on to C.D's and have been playin them ever since.Heard they were just as good at Download and thanks to the likes of local Rock D.J. Paul Anthony keeps playing them on Rock Radio.Keep up the good work fella's,hope to see you tour up in the North West soon. (Be great to see you at HRH5!)

Ah, what can I say? I witnessed FM on the Bon Jovi 'slippery when wet' tour at Hammersmith at the age of 16. The very next day I went to the old second hand record shop in Shepherds Bush and bought the Indiscreet LP for £4.50. Fan ever since.

25 Years where does the time go i was only 9 back then, I had been into rock for about 3 years my older brother got me into it, By then he had built up a fantastic vinyl collection, I remamber he had been to see Gary Moore but after he told me he and all his mates turned to each other and said what a fantastic support act wich of course was the mighty FM. He then went out and brought Indescreet we listened to it to it together what a brilliant first album, I remember he would`t let me play his records without him incase they got scratched but i wanted the album so badly i took it when he was out and recorded it onto cassete which i played over and over for years after i now have it on cd it still sounds great. I now have built up my own FM collection fantastic tour last year supporting the new album best gig i`ve been to for some time was great to hear the old tracks live from indescreet plus many others awsome. By the way Metropolis is a great come back album loving all the new stuff and i`am sure the next album will be just as good keep doing what your doing hope to see you again soon. Here`s to another 25 years.

Memories of FM and Indiscreet...

I believe I first heard about the band via my parents (fans of Free/Bad Company, and owners of the second Wildlife album) and the Friday Rockshow. We all went to see them in concert @ Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone, sometime around 85/86, before the album had been released. I then saw them again supporting Bon Jovi at the Hammersmith Odeon, late '86. This also happened to be the first time that I got to meet all the band when they arrived for their soundcheck (including Pete wearing a rather bright pink suit), and they kindly signed my various single covers - they also seemed surprised but grateful that I had the singles and was a 'proper fan'.

We saw them again @ Leas Cliff Hall during the winter tour of '87, and this was the second time that I got to meet the guys pre-show, who once again signed whatever I had with me plus I had a photo taken with Pete (still have it to this day, plus some dodgy quality photos taken in the hall during the gig). I also managed to see part of the soundcheck.

Saw them for the fourth (and last) time @ Leas Cliff Hall during the Tough It Out tour in '89.

Fantastic memories. But back to the Indiscreet album itself...

In short - Quality, everysong could have been a single release, and with the right record company and management, the album should and could have been a massive launch pad for greater future success. They deserved to be big.

Now thinking about the present and future, please return to Kent on the next tour and I'm sure the new album will be epic and a must for all fans, both the old and the newer generation.

Over and out (for now at least).

Nathan
