The Fixx were formed in 1980 in London by college friends Cy Curnin on vocals and Adam Woods on drums, originally under the name “The Portraits”. The pair placed an ad for additional members. As a result, guitarist Jamie West-Oram, keyboardist Rupert Greenall, and bassist Charlie Barret joined, and the band changed their name to “The Fixx”.[1] Barret left just after the recording of the band’s first album, Shuttered Room, in 1982. He was replaced by Alfie Agius. However, Agius’ stay in the band was short-lived too, as he left in the middle of sessions for the following album, Reach the Beach, in 1983. His bass work is featured on two of the album’s hits “Saved By Zero” and “One Thing Leads to Another.” [2] Dan K. Brown performed on the third top 40 single from that album, “The Sign of Fire”, and filled the bass spot until 1994. He was replaced by Chris Tait then Gary Tibbs, formerly of Roxy Music, The Vibrators, and Adam & The Ants, until 2008 when Dan K. Brown rejoined the band.

In 2002 The Fixx performed a 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 Anniversary Anthology CD.

The band regularly tour the U.S., and recently celebrated 25 years of making music together, accompanied by the release of the Twentyfifth Anniversary Anthology compilation. Cy Curnin can often be found on stage with a glass of wine in his right hand and an egg shaker in the left.
