Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about British rock and new wave band, The Fixx.
The Fixx are a British rock and new wave band that was formed in 1979 in London. Their hits include the songs "Saved by Zero", "One Thing Leads to Another", "Secret Separation" and "Are We Ourselves?", with all songs reaching the U.S. Top 20.
The Fixx were originally known as The Portraits, which the band members thought was hopelessly old fashioned. In thinking of new names, one idea they threw out in the air was "The Fix," which their producer Rupert Hine liked, because he was an amateur pilot, and in the world of aviation, "getting a fix" on something is a good thing.
The band liked the new name too and added the X-tra letter in an effort to avoid the drug connotations and make it stand out a bit, but they still had to deal with inevitable rumors that the name actually meant getting a dose of drugs.
