The Fixx is a British new wave band formed in 1980. The group was formed by college friends Cy Curnin (vocals) and Adam Woods (drums). The pair placed an ad for additional members. Jamie West-Oram (guitar), Rupert Greenall (keyboards) and Charlie Barret (bass) joined the band as a result. Barret left after the first album and was replaced by Dan K. Brown, who remained with the band until 1994.
They are perhaps best remembered for their song "One Thing Leads To Another", from their most successful album Reach the Beach from 1983. Their other hits are "Red Skies", "Stand or Fall", "Saved by Zero", "Sign of Fire", "Are We Ourselves?", "Secret Separation", "Driven Out", "How Much Is Enough?" and "Deeper and Deeper" which was featured on the soundtrack of Streets of Fire. "A Letter to Both Sides" appears on the Fletch soundtrack.
The Fixx regularly tour the U.S., and recently celebrated 25 years of making music together. Curnin, West-Oram, Greenall and Woods are now joined by bassist Gary Tibbs (formerly Roxy Music, The Vibrators, Adam & The Ants). Cy Curnin can often be found on stage with a glass of wine in his right hand and an egg shaker in the left.
The group is one of the few to have enjoyed significant success outside their country of origin, yet remain almost unknown in their home land.
In 2002 "One Thing Leads To Another" appeared in popular videogame Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, playing on Pop radio station Flash FM. That same year, The Fixx performed an all-new cover version of Nancy Sinatra's 1960s classic "These Boots Are Made for Walking" for a special album called When Pigs Fly, which featured unique remakes of songs from the 1960s through the 1990s. The song was also included as a bonus track on the group's Twentyfifth Anniversary Anthology CD.
