Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of the Canadian band's third album, originally released in 1979. FM began life in 1976 with Cameron Hawkins (synthesizers, bass, vocals) and Nash the Slash (electric violin, mandolin, vocals) coming together as a duo, making an appearance on national TV in Canada in the Summer of 1976. By March 1977 FM became a trio with the addition of Martin Dellar on drums. Nash the Slash was replaced by Ben Mink on electric violin and mandolin. This Esoteric Recordings release is the first time Surveillance has been issued in Europe and has been newly remastered and includes an illustrated booklet and a new essay.

I chose this space in Suveillance to write these words because, after listening to all FM cd's, I believe here is where the awesome drums sound started and continued on City of Fear. Contrary to many, I do enjoy Rocket Roll...a lot!. My advice for anyone that cares is to get all 4 albums in CD format. The sound quality is great, great songs, great liner notes, great memories at an affordable price. They are all gems in their own right and worthy to be in your collection. Thanks to Cherry Red Records for helping releasing these in CD format. I am a truly happier rocker now.....

There seem to be two FM camps: people who like City of Fear and those who like Surveillance. Surveillance is serious prog while City of Fear shows the commercial direction they would follow most of the rest of their career. This album is dated but remember, this is 1978. Radio was filled with crap and this was clearly the most interesting thing out there. It is more consistent than Black Noise as there really isn't a bad song on it. Some don't care for Rocket Roll, and the lyrics can be pretty silly in retrospect. But prog often was, Deller's drumming is amazing throughout and Ben Mink brings musical ideas that he would demonstrate time and again through his career. Hawkins excels here with his keyboards, they make this a true prog album. The arrangements are complicated but flow together very smoothly. Considering that it probably sold 10 copies originally, I'm amazed that this is available on CD. Grab it before it goes away.

I have loved this music as an album and bought it quickly before it disappeared. I thought that they has been sued by the Yardbirds for "Shapes Of Things" (Which I think is a better version of the song.) But, I later found that their publisher went out of business. I only wish that their luck was as good as their music was. Black Noise and City Of Fear are fine additions to a great Progressive Rock band that was too good for the U.S. market.

I chose this rating because I've owned the vinyl album since it came out in the late 70's. I couldn't get enough of the band back then, and I still can't. They do an awesome version of The Yardbirds' song, "Shapes of Things". Please note that FM's music contains no guitar leads or parts. Bass, keyboards, bass pedals, drums, percussion, electric violin and mandolin, and of course vocals. FM was an opening act for RUSH during their Moving Pictures tour back in the early 80's. The bands actually complimented each other, and I wish I could've been a witness to it, but this CD is well worth the time to listen to it. (I think Rush borrowed some of FM's sense of humor).

I've enjoyed the vinyl lp for years and saw them perform live a few times when I lived in Toronto, Canada in the 80s. Glad they finally released it on CD format. I hope they also release another album ConTest on CD format.
