Biography

England (1980 – present)

The Fixx is a British band that formed in 1980. Envisioned by college friends Cy Curnin (vocals) and Adam Woods (drums), the pair soon 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. The Fixx are perhaps best remembered for their song “One Thing Leads To Another”, from what has been their most successful album, 1983’s ‘Reach The Beach’.

That single has been included in numerous multi-artist compilation albums and continues to receive major airplay to this day. Other hits include “Red Skies” (also known as “Red Skies (At Night)”), “Stand or Fall”, “Saved By Zero”, and “Are We Ourselves?”. Interestingly, the group is one of the few British artists to have enjoyed significant success outside their country of origin while remaining mostly unknown in their home land, a trait which the Fixx shares with fellow rockers The Outfield and Naked Eyes.

The Fixx regularly tour the U.S., they and recently celebrated a solid twenty-five years of making music together. Curnin, West-Oram, Greenall and Woods are now joined by bassist Gary Tibbs (formerly of 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 Fixx were a cutting edge band with a cutting edge producer. Rupert Hine (look him up) helped define the 80's. I was lucky to see them in 1983 during their Reach the Beach tour. They were amazing.

    I'm surprised that Stand or Fall is #4 on the charts, it's the only song of theirs I've ever known and I expected this would be one of those cases where the chart was just basically that one track.

    I really like this band! And their 1998 album Elemental was a surprising pleasure to hear on first listen the other day! :-) I love the 90's! (yes I love plenty of music from the 80's too) The Fixx remind me of A-ha & The Thomson Twins. Maybe Cy Curnin's voice over their rock sound?

    After 9/11 and the subsequent political fallout, Cy Curnin, front man of The Fixx, moved to France and became an organic farmer. But Curnin never left his past behind. In fact, he has a lot to say about his songs from 30 years ago because in many ways, The Fixx are more relevant than ever: http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/cy_curnin_of_the_fixx/
