Episode 5: The Fixx - Phantoms (1984)
Before this week, Brian had never listened to the 1984 album
"Phantoms". But with one of the area's leading authorities on
The Fixx due to stop by, he cued it up so he would be able to join
Colby Zell in talking about this overlooked and underappreciated
Part 1: Personal History
We have two hosts this week - Brian and Colby. One has only known the record for a few days. The other used to risk his life riding a bicycle on a heavily traveled road with headphones on so he wouldn't miss a note! I hope he had a helmet!
Part 2: Background
Where were The Fixx coming from in 1984 and where were they going? This album actually tells that tale!
Part 3: Track By Track

- Less Cities, More Moving People
- Sunshine In The Shade
