About The Fixx
Formed in London in 1979, The Fixx are an English new wave
band known for their hits "One Way or Another" and "Saved By Zero." Vocalist/keyboardist Cy Curnin and his college friend,
drummer Adam Woods wanted to start a band, so they put out an advertisement for the remaining members. Guitarist Jamie West-Oram,
keyboardist Rupert Greenall, and bassist Charlie Barret, responded to the ad, and shortly after began making music together.
Originally calling themselves "The Portraits," the band recorded a single for Ariola Records called "Hazards In The Home,"
which unfortunately didn't lead to any success.
However, about a year later, the band changed their name to The Fixx
and recorded the single "Lost Planes," which then led to a record deal with MCA. The Fixx went on to release several successful
hit songs during the 80s, and continue to have a strong following of both loyal and budding new wave fans.
Fixx's Breakthrough Album
The Fixx's debut album Shuttered Room was met with mediocre success in the U.K., but it was
their second album in 1983 that had radio stations blasting their synth-pop hits. After the release of Shuttered Room, bassist
Charlie Barret left the group and was replaced by Dan Brown. Subsequently, their sophomore album Reach the Beach, produced
the chart-hugging hits "One Thing Leads To Another," "Sign of Fire," and "Saved By Zero." The album reached the top-ten list,
and received a platinum certification by the end of that year. In 1984, The Fixx released another successful album, Phantoms,
which went gold and launched the single "Are We Ourselves?"
The Fixx Trivia
Do you know why The Fixx chose
to spell their band name with an extra "x"?
Before being signed to MCA Records, MCA reps started to grow worried about
the potential drug-user implication of the band's name at the time, which was The Fix. To compromise, the band agreed to alter
the spelling of their name to The Fixx, and they were signed to MCA Records shortly after.
