The Fixx
The Fixx
The Fixx has been often heralded as one of the most innovative bands to come out of the MTV era. The style and substance of the band has always created a special connection with its audience. The Fixx’s themes are often complex, introspective and thought-provoking and it’s also been mass appeal with three #1 hits, five in the Top Five, a dozen reaching the Top Ten and millions of albums sold worldwide. Instantly recognizable, The Fixx sound is unmistakably unique and stands out among the thousands of artists filling the airwaves. Songs such as “One Thing Leads To Another”, “Red Skies” and “Saved By Zero” remain everyday staples on the playlists of the radio stations that continue to break new acts inspired the era that The Fixx helped to define. It is rare for an audience to experience a band that has continued to thrive for three decades. The Fixx were then, and still are - Cy Curnin on vocals, Rupert Greenall on keyboards, Jamie West-Oram on guitar, Adam Woods on drums, and bassist Dan K. Brown.

"I love Carletta's singing. She has an androgyny similar to Nina Simone. . . but without the bitterness."
---Stephin Merritt (Magnetic Fields)

Mr. Walker is more in the realm of sweaty rock 'n' roll than torch songs”
— New York Times

"Drag Queens lip synch, so don't let the wigs fool you, this is one of the best vocalists you could ever hear live, the kind of singer that doesn't even need a mic, the kind of singer that tugs at your heart strings. Great songs and a great band elevate Carletta Sue Kay to an extra-ordinary level of performance. Heart, Soul and Talent, on the grandest levels. I love Carletta Sue Kay"
— Christopher Owens (Girls)

“…Infinitely more touching than Antony.”
— Vogue Italia

"Cook delivers idiosyncratic vocals and a steady stream of quotable lines that convey as much attitude as, say, the debuts from Elvis Costello and the Pretenders." - No Depression

"If the songs on The Long Shot are any indication of what she's capable of, you can bet this lady's career is going to skyrocket." - babysue

"Barring any major catastrophes I can only see Cook going up from here and with a debut this strong, up means way up." - Dagger Zine
