    hi there

    I am a big FIXX fan, have been since I was a wee boy of 16-17yrs. old until my mid-20's (when Nirvana seemed to bump everything off the shelf), so now this 35-yr old is having a look at the music he used to love pre-Nirvana, and low and bhold they sound better than eva

    that is all.

    Welcome back to The Fixx. Great to hear you've redisovered them. You'll want to get Elemental from the 90s. Great stuff on there.

    INK was out about the same time Nirvana was soaring the charts, you might have missed it, so check that out too!
    Lots of good stuff STILL coming from this seasoned band!
    ENJOY!

    thanks to both of you.
    other than going out and buying INK and Elemental, which it sounds like i will need to do, are there any tracks on Last FM or Youtube that i can preview?
    I see they are still touring, I wish I'd known I would have caught them in Ithaca back in April...

    The Fixx webmaster always has four songs posted at the myspace page. Go HERE. Right now he's got a rare version of Do What You Can and a RIPPING live Big Wall. The songs rotate so go hear them asap as they just may be different tunes next couple days. He also posts videos in the myspace video section. It's worth a peek.

    Another place you can hear stuff is The Fixx Sound File Archive linked at the bottom of this post. There, you will find the b-sides and remixes that have not already been offically released on CD. There are also some live cuts at the bottom of that page from various sources.

    Welcome, Ponzie, lots of great Fixx fans here and always fun when the guys are touring, with the photos people post along with stories of meeting the band.
    I am the winner in any event.

    to all, happy new year, thx

    hey dee i'm from the Buffalo area too!
    hadn't it been for Toronto's 102.1 (years ago mind you) I wouldn't be much a fixx fan...with the exception of MTV of course playing videos like red skies, one thing, are we ourselves back in the day. but CFNY took the fixx further with tracks like secret separation, driven out (my fav), deeper & deeper and how much is enough
