I had the chance to see The Fixx for the first time yesterday.

Wow, the Stat tone with heavy compression into Fender amps for that clean " 80's sound" was so great live. Good band, glad they're still at it.

Haven't found any videos online that convey 1/10th the attack and tone you hear live.

Ahh, The Fixx! Remember them well: Stand or Fall, the first song I ever heard from them. Saved By Zero, the tremolo harmonics, and One Thing Leads to Another, nice clean riff in that song!

You know, I saw them live in the '90's and he was getting that sound with Marshalls. It was outside-Milwaukee Summerfest. '80's ? Oh well....
