    A few Fixx Music Videos...

    I just found this website whose members posted various Fixx videos as follows:

    Saved by Zero
    One Thing Leads to Another
    Red Skies (mistyped)
    Secret Separation
    The Fixx at Straubtoberfest - a few minutes

    Were you aware of this?

    Just go to:

    http://www.youtube.com

    In the search box at the top, type in: The Fixx

    Of course the live show trumps everything, but if you're at home or at work right now and want to feed your music soul, try it!

    I have seen these several times, and it is always a treat to see "Red Skies" again. That video was my first real inkling to the power of MTV, and what great things could be done with it. I remember being hooked within the first 10 seconds of the song and have never let go.

    Ahhh, the good ole days of MTV.
    I am the winner in any event.

    WOW.. I must be traveling down memory lane today...

    These are Great!!! Wow.. Seems so long ago.. but them again... Not...


    I wish that someone could find Stand or Fall.. which in my opinion was the best concept video ever... There are times.. when I am at my " okay.. just one more... to see if by chance they will play it." ... kinda reminds me when MTV first came out... "one more video and I am going to bed... I promise, Dad..really..."
    Ha! LOL!

    Thanks for sharing...

    On Jeannette Obstoj's site it cites her having directed the following Fixx videos:

    "Less Cities More Moving People"
    "Stand Or Fall"
    "One Thing Leads To Another"
    "Are We Ourselves"
    "Some People"



    I've never seen the videos for "Less Cities" or "Some People". Nor have I seen "Deeper & Deeper". I'm surprised "Stand or Fall" hasn't been posted somewhere on the web. Even "Precious Stone" is online.

    Anyone remember details of "Less Cities" or "Some People" videos?

    Mick, So were you at Ithaca last night? I m assuming so since you posted a setlist!

    What were you wearing? and did you come talk to any of us afterwards? I was talking shop with Jamie, and missed all the others, except Rupe before they retired for the evening...



    Dont think there is a video for Deeper,

    i ve seen the other two- i ll have to dust off the videos!

    Black shirt... hardly distinctive that night. I wasn't even sure which fixxtures would be there. This Ithaca gig came up quick on me. Kinda disappointing the college crowds did not show up in droves. No, I didn't hang around long unfortunately. I was late to meet an old roomate afterwards from my Ithaca days. Next time!

    "Less Cities" as I recall shows the band members in many different situations - on the street, in buildings, doing something secretive...? Cy is walking on the street with a microphone as if he's an "on-the-spot" reporter. Anyway - what always made me laugh was the shot of Cy covered in makeup so as to look like an old man... and him lip synching "but why is this not what I'm thinking?" almost like he was afraid to open up his mouth too much. LOL!!

    "Some People" is an early video, so it's mostly showing the band performing - but what sticks out in my mind is the band dressed up martial arts style and playing with swords, kicking and stuff...
