    Boy did they get that order wrong- in no way should the Fixx be openers for the Tom Tom Club. I literally can only think of one song by them, while I literally can think of 40 by the Fixx.

    Better Off Dead

    It's been a while since I've posted, but I just saw Better Off Dead, a movie from the mid 80's, and heard the song at the end by Cy. Has that one ever been played live by the band; it was the first...

    There used to be a place in Fullerton, CA, called Ichabods back in the mid '80's. On the weekends, cover bands would play (some good, some not so) while I sipped down very tasty $1 Long Island iced...

    Bummed in SoCal

    Gotta admit, I bummed that the Hollywood Park and Long Beach shows have been cancelled. This leaves, pretty much, five shows in Central/Northern California and none (except for a private one for...

    Poll: Prove

    Prove is the best song here- it demonstrates the tight sound that reviewers of their recent concerts comment about. It would be a great single on contemporary radio as well. Too bad it's not on their...

    I don't understand why All Is Fair does not get more props. It's catchy, has good drive, and the lyrics work well with it. Most fans either love or hate this CD, but I love it and All Is Fair kicks...
  20. Poll: Driven Out = No Brainer

    Driven Out is by far the best song of this set (refer to my sign on name). Such an important directive for life in a song that rocks! A distant second is The Flow.

    Ink? Better Than You Think!

    This CD gets bashed from time to time, but I have always liked it. In fact, from beginning to end I believe it's their best overall. I remember when I first opened and listened to it, I couldn't...
