The Fixx- Reach The Beach
The Fixx were another band back in the 80's that I had to keep on the DL that I actually liked them. It was not cool for metal dudes to dig new wave bands. But now that I'm 38, I can openly admit that "Saved By Zero" and "One Thing Leads To Another" both rule.
So when I found this at Musicmania (again for only one dollar) I didn't hesitate at all picking it up. Bernard, put more records on the shelves!!!
The rest of the album isn't too bad. Maybe a little too "new wavey" for me though. I'm trying to remember their other hits that weren't on this album, but I'm having trouble remembering. Was it "Red Skies"? Guess I'll have to youtube it to see if I remember.
I would be interested in checking them out live sometime. I think it's cool that they never broke up and it's been the same band for over 30 years now. More power to them.
