One thing leads to another - The Fixx

The Fixx were formed in 1980 in London by college friends Cy Curnin and Adam Woods, originally under the name The Portraits. The pair placed an ad for additional members. As a result, Jamie West-Oram, Rupert Greenall and Charlie Barret joined, and the band changed their name to The Fixx.

Their most successful release was the 1983 single 'One thing leads to another', which reached number 4 in the US Billboard Hot 100. In Europe, the single did not cause such a stir. It was released as a limited edition double single in the UK. The second disc included two earlier singles, which were minor successes in the UK in 1982.

My collection: 7" single no. 2614
Found: Record fair, Den Haag, February 10, 1996
Cost: 4 guilders
Tracks: 'One thing leads to another' / 'Inspiration' // 'Red skies' / 'Stand or fall'

  1. This is an amazing collection of singles by the Fixx! Saved by Zero was another great song by them. The point you raise about their songs getting alot of airplay despite not much success on the charts is so true.
