Hi Steve, Sad as I am, I already own the tin & the jap compilation, had them some years now. The card sleeve USA CD I mentioned earlier has the same sleeve as the vinyl in the picture. If you ever see a USA CD with the same FMUK front I'd be very interested. Been a very interesting FM day today. Hopefully 3 more CDs are on their way which will put me ahead in my little competition.

Richard, How strange, I ordered it a few hours ago, i'll be amazed if I get it delivered for £23, the last one on Ebay (unsealed) did double that! LOL Here's hoping. Scott.

Steve, Thanks for the info, I was pretty sure Tough It Out was in a longbox, I have the USA version of the CD (FMUK). I don't have a proper USA (Made in the USA) version of Indiscreet, is that one credited to FMUK too? I have a card sleeve promo that was made in the USA with FMUK on the front, the disc is just credited to FM but manufactured in Japan by CBS/Sony. Sorry if I'm getting ana

Richard, I have that disc too, bought it from the same place as you! Didn't Pete Jupp find the recording under his bed or something? I'm looking for a few bits that I know about - Crosstown Train - 1 track CDr promo. Heroes & Villains - Full album watermarked promo (turns up on Ebay) Diggin Up the dirt - 1 trk CDr promo (Ebay again). The toughie I'm really struggling with

So was it a tenner or £25? I thought it was the latter or was the 2009 proper release £25, bet that is what I'm remembering. scott.

Richard, Thanks for helping clear that up, had a couple more messages confirming it was 2007. My friends definatley couldn't have bought them on the Sunday as there was no show on that day that year. Wonder how many were made, how many were signed/unsigned and if that was the price difference £25? vs a tenner (unsigned). I'm still no wiser as to what happened to mine, guess i'll have to

Hi folks need some help with my memory! Must be getting old! I'm currently having a little collecting competition with a friend on FM cd's,it's a bit of fun but also since I have collected them for a number of years, a good way of keeping the collection up without it becoming a drag.Especially with the amount of new promos being released this last couple of years!

Mik, I know thanks, we are getting the info, but too many times things have changed, from getting the contracts 3 months ago to the week of the gig. Just talking from experience at club level here. Glenn & anybody else that is attending next Monday, times are - 7.00pm - Doors. 7.30pm - The Picture Books. 8.30pm - Bad Touch. 9.30pm - The Answer. Hope that helps. Keep rocking

Mik, please don't read too much into that statement. I just cannot definitively confirm the running times right now, would hate to get it wrong, for whatever reason and frustrate a customer. The Answer gig is through a 3rd party agent (basically he's hiring the club from us), so he's got the contracts and I haven't found out the running times yet. I will do that today. thanks. scot

Glenn, No idea on start times for the Answer yet & defo no idea on FM either. Until the bands arrive & tell us set lengths, nothing can be confirmed. As for the weekday start times, we have tried earlier times before and it failed. The majority of attendees at the club know the first band will be on at 8pm (usually for a 3 band bill).Plus don't forget that band logistics can play a pa

Hi Dave, Thanks for your support and attendance. Would love to meet and say hello on weds, just ask a staff member to point me out and say hello. Just through these messages and some emails I've received, it would seem out of the 48 in attendance, 18 so far have travelled in....that's a worry that 3 great original bands can't muster up more than 30 locals! Shameful really, but a reality.

Hi RAB, Thanks for your kind words and understanding. We completely understand that sometimes other factors in folks life make travelling hard. To be honest we can't knock anybody that travels and supports a live venue. There are many folks locally that could have attended last night but chose not to. Knowing some of these folks from owning my shop is something that frustrates me. But hey,

Hey Fader, Thanks for the response and commitment to the scene, I know exactly where you are coming from with the younger generation not coming through and I too have a similar outlook to youself. My son was there last night too, he was playing tunes inbetween the bands off his laptop and helps out the soundman with stage set ups etc....(unpaid and glad to help I might add) and he's 21 in May.

We too prefer originals, but as you say, revenue is needed and the business then has to cater for 'joe public' tributes. When we have taken a chance on some more established artists, that too has worked, we had Toyah on Friday, completely sold out at £18 a ticket, Big Country normally sells out and Bad Manners too just to name 3. The problem then arises that if we decline too many from an age

The situation with regards to turnouts is one that is becoming more and more of a concern with original acts. It's a vicious circle that seems to be getting worse. Most on here already know that I'm closely involved with the running of the Yardbirds and as the main ticket seller I'm very committed to getting folks through the door. The turnout last night can only be described as disappointi

HMV are not considered to be an independent, this is reflected in that they cannot take part in Record Store Day which is only for Independent Record Stores. As an Independent Record Store owner wanting to stock new product, there are certain labels/distributors that make it very hard to be competitive. I don't want to be the cheapest, but there is something fundamentally wrong with a syste

Of course if the record companies made in financially possible for independent record shops to stock it, customers would be able to visit a physical store and buy it! For an industry that has been in decline and turmoil for years I cannot believe how independent shops are treated versus Amazon. Rant over...sorry Scott. Rock music fan & record store owner.

For me the heavier Inside Love works well, where as Strangers in the Night has that big last chorus missing from the original, a minor gripe but cannot stop playing this disc! Scott.
