Bad Reputation Masterful debut from UK wimp-rockers.
“We like girls, we think they’re nice. You get called an old bender if you sing about boys,” FM drummer Pete Jupp once replied when I asked him why FM wrote so many songs about girls. The combination of saccharinecoated melodies, tough choruses and Steve Overland’s blues-soaked crooning made FM’s Indiscreet an album that encapsulated Britain’s mid-80s melodic rock boom. It would take a sleuth as cunning as Miss Marple to work out why songs as divine as That Girl , American Girls , Other Side Of Midnight and the über-ballad Frozen Heart didn’t become enormous.
You thought that a group from Blighty was incapable of scaling the dizzy heights as Journey, Boston, REO and Styx? Try Indiscreet – now with seven bonus tracks.
