College friends Cy Curnin on vocals and Adam Woods on drums formed the group in London in 1979, initially calling themselves Portraits. The pair placed an ad for additional members, and recruited keyboardist Rupert Greenall, guitarist Tony McGrail and bassist Russell Mckenzie later to be replaced by Charlie Barrett. Portraits issued two singles for Ariola Records: “Little Women” (1979), and “Hazards In The Home” (1980).

The Fixx’s raised profile eventually led to the group being offered a contract by MCA Records. Worried about the potential drug-user implication of the band’s name, MCA insisted on a name change before signing them to the label. A compromise was reached as the band altered the spelling of their name to The Fixx, and a deal was duly inked.

After a full decade of touring and recording, the early part of the 1990’s saw the FIXX spending time with their families. It was during this decade, that the band’s record label released a number of compilations and greatest hits packages including “Missing Links” (1994), “Ultimate Collection: The Fixx” (1999), 20th Century Masters – The Millenium Collection: The Best Of The Fixx (2000), “Extended Versions” (2000); “Happy Landings and Lost Tracks” (2001); “Then And Now” (2002)

Most recently, the band has been hitting the road quite regularly and spending in between time working on various in studio projects. Cy Curnin has been active with social media giant Facebook and has made available dozens of new tracks on the platform he’s also released two new EP’s in the past year “Lockdown” and “Age Of Hearts”. Rupert Greenall is often in the recording studio and has released a number of side projects with various musicians. Jamie West-Oram has been spending his time working on creating music for film and television productions, and is also creating an all-new exciting musical project. Dan K. Brown occasionally appears live playing very different genres of music. Adam Woods is hard at work at the moment creating, tinkering and developing production elements for the next tour.

    Love the Fixx!!

    One of the great 80s bands. I would love to hear “Red Skies” & “Saved By Zero” played live.

    I was unable to attend the Fixx’s 35th anniversary of Reach the Beach album tour in 2018. In fact I’ve never seen
    ’em live in concert. What an incredible landmark concept album, and storied discography. They are original pioneers of the early MTV New Wave sound that brought me joy, sugar-coating my childhood in the Reagan era.

    I loved the Fixx and would love to see them

  5. Karl Michael Jacobson on June 2, 2022 at 5:31 pm

  11. Frank Richards on June 6, 2022 at 11:50 am

    I need to be saved by zero after reaching the beach with red skies as one thing leads to another and there I will stand or fall in my secret separation.

  12. Brian on June 6, 2022 at 12:11 pm

    I’ve loved The Fixx since their album Reach The Beach. It would be amazing to win tickets to see The Fixx play live!

  19. Bob MacKay on June 9, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    One Thing Leads to Another – best song on a jukebox in a pizza joint in Ohio in the 80s. Always played it, ordered same pizza, and crappy midwestern red ale…

  20. Lynn on June 10, 2022 at 7:04 am

    Saved by zero!!! Pick me!

  21. Andy on June 10, 2022 at 10:09 am

    Their sound is so hi fidelity! The show will be great to see at The Aladdin!

  22. Carol trekas on June 10, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    We love the Fixx.

  23. Mike S. on June 11, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    I would love to take a friend and relive the 80s seeing one of the best bands from those days plus free tickets leaves cash for food and drink at the concert. The Lamp at The Aladdin Theater is a great place to hang out before shows there.

    Would love to attend.
