    Talking Hello from a UK newbie

    Greetings from Wimbledon!

    I have been a Fixx fan for over 20 years and only recently discovered this message board so I thought I'd join in and say hi to you all.

    I find it quite disappointing that most UK music shops here do not have any Fixx CD's in stock, I'll never in a million years figure out why they never became that popular over here, whilst some other crap 80's bands (who shall remain nameless became huge!)

    I do hope they tour over here sometime soon, if not I guess I am buying a ticket for the U.S so I can see them again after all these years. I saw them back in 1983 and then again in 1986 in Miami, where I used to live (how time flies!, I suddenly feel very old! )

    Welcome Alannah, did you go to either of the UK shows, last summer? Both gigs were well attended, and top quality entertainment

    Thanks for the welcome Wilkie, sadly I must admit that I never heard about them, what a shame!
    But it's good to know they have toured over here, which gives me hope they'll tour again soon!

    Distribution

    Talks of distributing CDs in Euro/UK have dragged on for two years now. There is just no good deal on the table for them - meaning they would not make a penny on sales. There is still A LOT being discussed and hopefully - HOPEFULLY - everything will get worked out before Summer. We are sitting on so many plans, but nothing we can announce until we know they will in fact happen.
    A tour through Europe - the guys would love to, they just don't know when...
    We have all noticed a jump in activity by fans and audiences. The guys, and Fixxtures, are all incredibly optimistic!
    News on thefixx.com is updated the beginning of the month and we are enjoying our profile at: http://www.myspace.com/thefixx by switching songs each Friday... so keep in, ah... t o u c h !

    Talking

    Thank you all for the kind welcome!

    I have resorted to buying CD's from the American Amazon website, though I have noticed the UK site does have some Fixx CD's including their most recent one, which I have not purchased yet! I am a also newbie to their recent work but I am looking forward to catching up

    So Alannah, how is it that you get around so much: Florida, Calif, England...? I used to live in Florida too by the way.
