The Fixx are an English new wave band. They are one of the few bands to have enjoyed significant success outside their country of origin, notably in the United States and Canada, yet remain almost unknown in their home land.
The Fixx were formed in 1980 in London by college friends Cy Curnin on vocals and Adam Woods on drums, originally under the name "The Portraits". The pair placed an ad for additional members. As a result, guitarist Jamie West-Oram, keyboardist Rupert Greenall, and bassist Charlie Barret joined, and the band changed their name to "The Fixx".[
In 2002 The Fixx performed a cover version of Nancy Sinatra's 1960s classic "These Boots Are Made for Walking" for a special album called When Pigs Fly, which featured unique remakes of songs from the 1960s through the 1990s. The song was also included as a bonus track on the group's Anniversary Anthology CD.
The band regularly tour the U.S., and recently celebrated 25 years of making music together, accompanied by the release of the 2 CD set Twentyfifth Anniversary Anthology compilation. Cy Curnin can often be found on stage with a glass of wine in his right hand and an egg shaker in the left.
