The Fixx's guide to urban renewal: 'Less Cities, More Moving People'



Although The Fixx only landed one Top 10 hit (One Thing Leads To Another) in the ‘80s, they were among the decade's most consistent generators of new wave/rock music with thought-provoking songs like Less Cities, More Moving People.

In 1984, after the success of Are We Ourselves? and Sunshine in the Shade, The Fixx's Less Cities, More Moving People failed to chart but still is counted among the band's finer works.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 37 million American move each year, however two-thirds of them just move within the same county. In 2011, Americans disobeyed Cy Curnin and The Fixx and set the record for most number of Americans that stayed put. The exodus out of the city to the suburbs continues and the top two destinations to relocate in the U.S. are New York to Florida and California to Texas.

The Fixx still perform and their latest album was the 2012 release Beautiful Friction.
