No TV guests this time around, and the band are now relegated to a much smaller venue. With a 4th album out last year, showing that they still knew how to craft catchy pop/rock tunes, this was the first chance in around three and a half years fro UK fans to see the band. The set mostly comprised new material from @Hello it's Me' and songs from their classic ' Thrown to the Wolves'. Also nice to see that their cover of the Cars' 'Just what I needed' is still in the set too.
Highlights for me were 'Dilate', 'Pain' and 'Long Way Down'.
Good solid support was added by Fatally Yours, a young Oxford band, who play a similar style of rock as FSM, and who have a few pretty decent tunes '"That 'status symbol' we spoke of' ; "The Consequence of greed"; and "What Have I Gone & Done" were all enjoyable (although having picked up a copy of their self recorded album, it was apparent that they have yet to capture their live sound on record - but still worth keeping an eye on)
