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.
