    London Gig!!!!

    Hooray!!! Only 4 days until the Fixx live in London, day off work, beers on the train, down SoHo way for a night of igloo-omlette music from the lads!!!! Marvellous!! Can't wait!!!

    A few questions to those in the know:

    1/ Is there a support band? If so, who?
    2/ What time will the Fixx be onstage? The ticket has a 7pm start time but surely the boys won't be on til 9ish?
    3/ Will there be any changes to the Swansea set list? Would be great to hear 'I Live' or 'Running' or 'Facing the Wind'... So many great songs, so little time!!

    That's it, hoping there's a good turnout, lots of noise for the chaps!! Welcome home!!

    There wasn't much merchandise, just a t-shirt with a front print only, and a dvd/cd-rom, featuring the Touch video, a montage with 'No Hollywood Ending' playing, and some audio tracks with the previously seen photos, as a slideshow.

    The support band, IT, were great, and I bought their cd, 'Over and Out', at the show, as a result. Very atmospheric, and great performed live. Does anyone know, do they have a website anywhere?

    I reckon the set might change, as a couple of the new numbers, still need working on, as one of their endings was a bit sloppy. At least, that's what Cy thought!!

    Anyways, I'll be wearing my favoured blue 'Cold Chisel' t-shirt on Thursday, so come over and say 'hello'!!

    Cool Nick from IT...

    Hi guys,
    It's Nick here from the band 'IT'. I'm so happy that everyone enjoyed our shows and the album. Working with the Fixx was an unbelievable experience and an opportunity of a lifetime! Thank you Rupert, Cy, Adam, Jamie and Gary! Hope to do it again in the near future. Europe and the rest of the UK sometime? Haha.. IT's website is www.spacehouse.tv It is our second site and is still undergoing completion. News and live dates are all on there. The Multi media downloads page will be running soon and will include free MP3's and M-pegs. If anyone has any photo's they can email us, we'd appreciate it very much as we need some for our website. You can send those to nick@spacehouse.tv
    Many thanks again and hope to see you soon,
    Best wishes,
    Nick.

    Hi Nick,

    I'm glad you had such a great time with The Fixx, it is certainly good to see 'young bucks' and 'old farts' out on the road together!!

    I'm listening to 'Stay Tuned' as I type, I 'm pleased that some bands are bucking the trend, and creating something new and exciting!

    Say hello to the guys for me, and thanks for dropping by.. 'don't be a stranger'
