The Fix

Michigan's The Fix formed in 1980 and by 1981 were the second band to sign to the now-legendary Touch & Go Records (Butthole Surfers, Big Black, Jesus Lizard). They broke up by 1982, but in their short time as a band, released the Vengeance/In This Town 7" and the Jan's Rooms 7", both of which are long sold out but are being repressed by Touch & Go as a double 7" pack on April 15 (just ahead of, but not part of Record Store Day), limited to 1,000 copies. If you're not familiar with The Fix, you can listen to streams of both 7"s below, and they should appeal to fans of any of the more famous early '80s bands like Black Flag, Minor Threat, etc.

Also below is a trailer video for the reissues and tracklist...

I'm sorry - I was on vacation when this came through. I'll catch more next time.

Hope the price of the OG goes way down & a bunch of fat, lame old dudes bitch. Record collecting is incredibly stupid.

Wait a second- 30 year-old 7" is long sold out? How could that be? I was just going to hit up Sam Goody after I got my Yugo serviced.

I don't know if this shit was exciting in 1982 or not, but it sure as shit isn't now. Just awful.

T&G needs to go away.

If you haven't heard it, here's a heads up: sounds like literally every other early 80s hardcore record. It's all the same. You nerds haven't realized that yet?

Touch an go situations are very applicable for these artists.
