The Fixx – Like Watching Paint Dry (3/5)

Worst concert I went to was The Fixx at Irvine Meadows, ca 1985. Gosh they were boring. They just stood there the entire concert. They had this great, moody music, some of it energetic, all of it suffused with feeling aided not only be great musicianship but the singers tremendous vocals … and they had no showmanship to match. Watching paint dry while listening to their records would have proved more entertaining. At one point I wondered whether they were piping in the music and what looked like musicians were actually 3D cardboard cutouts. That’s how little they moved.
