Line morale has hit rock bottom

“Shuttered Room” is the debut album of the british new wave band The Fixx released in 1982. Cy Curning and Adam Woods formed the band in 1979 in London under the name of Portraits. Portraits issued two singles for Ariola Records: “Little Women” (1979), and “Hazards In The Home” (1980) before changing their name to The Fix. Under 101 Records they released “Lost Planes”. Finally they signed to MCA for an album and another name change to The Fixx occured because they were troubled by the drug-user implication of the band’s name.Their debut album inlcuded the hits “Stand Or Fall” and “Red Skies” which both charted in the US, Canada, UK and Holland. After this album they were still successfull in the United States and Canada but elsewhere they didn’t succeed in charting again. Almost forgotten nowadays but they ranked as one of the best bands of the 80’s new wave.
