Hot on the heels of their 10th studio album, ‘Atomic Generation’, the UK’s melodic rock finest FM
started their  tour cycle with a stunning appearance in front of the  Frontiers Rock Festival crowd in
Milan, Italy in April 2018. 

FM offered up a set which included fan favourites and classic cuts taken from their first two albums,
‘Indiscreet’ and ’Tough It Out’, alongside cuts from recent releases ‘Heroes And Villains’ and the
the  aforementioned ‘Atomic Generation’, plus surprise song choices such as the 1987 single
‘Let Love Be The Leader’ thrown into the mix.

The band’s performance was simply faultless and mind-blowing. The rhythm section of Pete Jupp
and Merv  Goldsworthy didn’t miss a beat, while Jem Davis produced rich sonic tapestries with his
keyboards,  Jim Kirkpatrick was absolutely amazing on guitar, and Mr. Steve Overland offered a
breathtaking performance, showing the world w hy he is one of the truly legendary voices in rock.

“Knowing we were recording and filming the show, there was a lot more pressure than normal for this
performance. But that aside, we knew the Italian fans and the fans who had travelled from around the
world would not let us down. As you will see from the footage, it was a marvellous evening and they
did indeed deliver us the energy we needed. We were blown away by the audience reaction. Fantastic
crew and venue added to the overall energy. This is also the only live album that features some of the
newer material from ‘Metropolis', ‘Rockville', 'Heroes & Villains' and 'Atomic Generation'. It is a good
representation of where the band is today,” says bassist and founding member Merv Goldsworthy. 

‘The Italian Job’ documents this show. An absolute gem of an album, it is unmissable not only for FM
followers, but all fans of the melodic rock genre.
