    My first intro, not my first post

    Hey everybody,
    I've been posting occasionally over the past two years but never formally introduced myself. I'm Chris Murphy, you can call me Murph. I've been a fan ever since I bought Shuttered Room on vinyl. Still have it in my milk crate in the attic until I buy another turntable. I should break it out for the next tour. I digress. Originally from Philly, live about 20 miles northeast now with my wife and two boys. Stay at home dad taking classes part time towards a nursing degree. Had enough of the business world. No offense to any business people. Saw the Fixx back in '83ish with Flock of Seagulls. Many of you probably remember the tour. Fixx should have headlined. The Flock was ok but relied more on being loud than good. The Fixx blew them away. I saw the boys in Philly at the Trocadero two years ago and then in Wilmington DE in Fall of 2005. As I posted before, this was like seeing your favorite band at a local bar. Literally standing next to the stage and watching Jamie play about six feet away. Anyone at that gig can attest to the intimacy factor. I'll chime in here and there when my seven year old allows me computer access. Nice to chat with you all. Looking forward to the new CD and tour. Boy, if that isn't an understatement. Take care.

    Thanks shoeman. It's exciting to make a career change. Nice to talk to cool people with a common interest in the Fixx. Are they headed your way on the summer tour?

    Greetings Murph!!
    As of this writing, no dates for the Deep South yet.
    I would not rule out the Falls Church, VA show on August 16 at this point, but it would take a lot to make that happen.
    Would love to see the band this summer, or possibly November.....
    I don't "go through channels." I dig my own....
