Profile
FM was a founded in Toronto in 1976 by Cameron Hawkins (keyboards, bass) and Jeff "Nash the Slash" Plewman (violin, mandolin). The original drummer was Martin Deller; Plewman left after the first album and was replaced by Ben Mink. In the mid-80s, Mink left and Plewman rejoined, though the band called it a day in 1989. Since that time Hawkins has reconvened the band for two brief reunions with differing personnel.
