The Fixx has been often heralded as one of the most innovative bands to come out of the MTV era. The style and substance of the band have always created a special connection with its audience. The Fixx’s themes are often complex, introspective, and thought-provoking, but the band also has mass appeal with three number 1 hits, five in the Top 5, a dozen reaching the Top 10, and millions of albums sold worldwide.
Instantly recognizable, the Fixx sound is unmistakably unique and stands out among the thousands of artists filling the airwaves. Songs such as “One Thing Leads to Another,” “Red Skies,” and “Saved by Zero” remain everyday staples on the playlists of the rock, Hot AC (formerly known as Adult Hit Radio), and alternative radio stations that continue to introduce new acts inspired by the era that the Fixx helped to define. It is rare for an audience to experience a band that has continued to thrive for twenty-five years.
They began their career over three decades ago with MCA Records and the gold-selling album Shuttered Room, which spent an entire year on the Billboard Hot 100 and spawned the hit single “Stand or Fall.” Next came the groundbreaking Reach the Beach, a 1983 double-platinum selling album that included the singles “Saved by Zero” and “One Thing Leads to Another.” They also embarked on a North American tour with the Police, which earned the Fixx critical acclaim and lifelong fans for their songs and captivating performances.
The Fixx’s original members were, and still are, Cy Curnin on vocals, Rupert Greenall on keyboards, Jamie West-Oram on guitar, and Adam Woods on drums, along with recently reacquired bassist Dan K. Brown, who returned after spending a decade with the group during the height of its popularity. Live, in concert, the band consistently delivers that same sonic authenticity fans have come to expect from its performances. Concertgoers, whether longtime fans or those experiencing them for the first time, are thrilled by the band’s dynamic stage presence and trademark sound.
