If the fates of its early 80s new wave peers are any standard for measurement, the Fixx should be long gone. But the band itself has always shirked comparison, so why shouldn't we?

The Fixx formed in London in 1979, and after a couple of name changes -- they began as the Portraits, which became the Fix and finally the Fixx -- the band found itself on a major label, bouncing back and forth between MCA and RCA throughout the 1980s. In the past two decades, the Fixx has release four albums on independent labels, and while the band is best known for high-charting songs from the major label period -- including "One Thing Leads to Another" and "Saved by Zero" -- their catalogue is much deeper and more diverse than those pop hits would seem to indicate.

These rock 'n' roll endurance men are still at it, having released their tenth studio album, "Beautiful Friction," in July 2012. Members Cy Curnin and Jamie West-Oram stopped by the Magnolia Avenue studios of 88.1 KDHX to record an exclusive acoustic session consisting of two songs from "Beautiful Friction" -- "Anyone Else" and "Take a Risk" -- and one from 2002's "Then and Now."
