The Fixx

is a British musical group which was formed in 1980. The band was formed by college friends Cy Curnin (vocals), and Adam Woods (drum player). They advertised for additional members for their band and they recruited Jamie West - Oram (guitar player), Rupert Greenall (keyboard player), and Charlie Barret (bass guitar player). Just after the group recorded their first album, Charlie barret left the group and he was replaced by Alfie Agius. Agius only stayed for a short while and left in the middle of the groupís sessions for their next album. He did play the bass guitar on the two hit singles from the album. They were Saved By Zero and One Thing Leads To Another. After that, Dan K. Brown took over the bass guitar player position and stayed with the band until 1994.
