InfoEdit

One of the longest running bands in the scene (but woefully misunderstood and under-rated), Jesus Fix were a formidable live act, playing intense music that fused the primal poundings of Amebix and Killing Joke to the Gothic overtones of Sisters Of mercy. Best witnessed through a choking fog of smoke lit by flashing strobes, their songs largely followed a strict formula: Chris's relentless tribal thump and Pat's driving bass, Kev overlaying an almost Industrial wash of chordal noise, topped by Pat's simple but stirring, powerful vocal cries.

The addition of PB on keyboards emphasised the Gothic element slightly, whilst the replacement of Kev with their former soundman John Rigg's more Metal-style playing altered the sound once again.


And at no point did they ever sound remotely like Hawkwind. Ever. Not one bit.


Jesus Fix reformed in 2010 with the original lineup, which played a handful of gigs before Kev left yet again, to be replaced by long-time friend and fan of the band John Wood.
