What have FM been up to?

It's become quite apparent that anybody looking at this page would think we haven't been up to anything this year, but we all know different don't we?  Thank you to each and every one of you for helping to make 2009 an amazing year for us.

What have we been up to?

Well for starters we have done our best to embrace t'interweb wholeheartedly and have to say a big thanks to everyone who has joined us whether it be on the website forum, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, last.fm or Youtube.  Your contributions have made us laugh, cry, sometimes even cry with laughter and we really do respect your views and comments.

We've also been doing a lot of writing and recording.  Right now we are just putting the final touches to the album up in the very rural Vale Studios which is close to Worcester.  We're over the moon with the reaction to Wildside, our first new release in so many years.  All we could do was hope that you would all like it as much as we did, and it seems that you did!  Roll on February 2010 and the new album METROPOLIS.  Hope to see you all down at the Roadhouse in Covent Garden for the launch party on February 7th.  It's going to be a raucous night!  More details about what we have planned and ticket information will be posted here very soon.....

Somewhere along the way we even found the time to do a couple of gigs, Winstanley College in March and Firefest VI in October.  It was great to see so many of you and all in fine voice too!  Our Firefest diary will be up on these pages shortly.

The website will be getting a bit of a tidy-up.  We've been working on some new features for the site and are pleased to see from various posts on the forum and facebook etc. that we are heading in the right direction.  We hope you will like the additions when you see them.  Let us know what you think.

2010 promises to be another great year in FM-land.  It's all systems go and we want all of you right there with us to join in the fun.

Steve, Merv, Pete, Jem and Jim
