the FIXX: 

The FIXX formed in the late 1970’s out of London, England, when college friends Cy Curnin (vocals) and Adam Woods (drums) formed the group, initially calling themselves Portraits. The original lineup added the aforementioned two with Rupert Greenall (keyboard), Tony McGrail (guitar), and Russell Mckenzie (bass), the last of whom was later replaced by Charlie Barrett. Portraits issued two singles for Ariola Records: “Little Women” (1979), and “Hazards In The Home” (1980). Later in 1980, McGrail left, and the band added guitarist Jamie West-Oram and changed their name to The Fix. Since the 80’s the FIXX has continued to adapt to lineup changes, releasing 10 studio albums, while continuing to tour regularly around the world.

With nearly a quarter-century of music-making under their collective belt, the members of Fastball continue to extend and expand the band’s widely loved body of work. The trio’s catalog encompasses such memorable albums as their 1996 debut Make Your Mama Proud, their 1998 platinum breakthrough All the Pain Money Can Buy (which spawned the Grammy-nominated Top Five hit “The Way”), 2000’s The Harsh Light of Day, 2004’s Keep Your Wig On, 2009’s Little White Lies and 2017’s Step Into Light.
