We will be home soon!

We’re happy to say that we will be flying home on Tuesday afternoon after what we can only describe as an extremely trying four days.

We’d like to thank our good friend, guitar enthusiast and ex-Rick Astley associate David Morris MP for sorting out our passport difficulties with the British Consulate today. Without him we’d be stuck here all week.

Also, thank you to José Angel, manager of our hotel tonight in Madrid. After being informed that we would be unable to check in due to lack of passports, Jim asked to speak to the manager. José came out and happened to be wearing two lapel badges; one of a guitar and a Queen one! After showing him pictures of Jim with Brian May and Jim on the Brian May Guitars website we managed to overcome this difficulty!

Also many thanks to Rob Fodder today for sorting our BA bookings. What a star!! 

We’ve many more people to thank who have helped us over the weekend which we will get around to over the next few days.

In the meantime as you can see our singer has coped in his usual style!!

*** FM equipment stolen today in Barcelona ***


Unfortunately this afternoon at 4pm our bus was broken into and with the exception of Steve Overland’s two Fender Stratocasters all of our equipment, luggage and passports were  stolen.

The main two items that are irreplaceable are Merv’s 5-string Gibson Les Paul bass which is totally unique and Jim’s EVH Wolfgang.

Along with this we lost our merch, Roland sequencer, two MacBooks and an iPad.

If our friends in Barcelona could please share this post in the hope that they might be recovered.

Thank you to our promoter Robert Mills and to the boys in Dare who have helped us with equipment to ensure that tonight’s show goes ahead.

Changes to FM webshop shipping charges

Owing to yet another increase in postage costs by Royal Mail, regrettably we have had to revise our shipping charges in the webshop.  
For many years we have subsidised our shipping charges with free shipping in the UK and a flat-rate per order for Europe and ROW - regardless of the size of the order. Sadly this is no longer viable. 
We have always endeavoured to keep prices in the webshop at a reasonable level for you all, so to compensate for the increased shipping costs we have reduced the price of all the clothing items in our webshop. For full details please see the FM Terms of Service or click the link at the foot of each webshop page.
