Fixers are a five-piece Experimental Psychedelic-Pop group from Oxford, England that consists of Jack Goldstein, Jason Warner, Christopher Dawson, Roo Bhasin and Michael Thompson. The band are signed to Vertigo Records.

Fixers started out releasing limited runs of cassette tapes to their friends and self-producing online videos to promote themselves online. They have subsequently begun their own vinyl/cassette label, Dolphin Love, which they intend to release many of their singles on. To promote their 'Amsterdam' cassette release the band played an exclusive set at Modern Art Oxford in their hometown. The set consisted entirely of songs placed on a backing track and sung in a karaoke manner to a backdrop of custom made visuals by the band.
Fixers were first played on the radio in August 2009 on BBC Oxford Introducing. They came to the attention of the music press as part of the 'Blessing Force' movement but later left it 'amicably'.
They have played sessions for Jo Whiley and Huw Stephens and their third release, "Swimhaus Johannesburg", received regular airplay on BBC Radio 1.
They headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals in August 2011.

NME described the Oxford band as "the most capable of thinking their way to break-out success with their avant-garde take on The Beach Boys."

The band's influences include Brian Wilson, Van Dyke Parks, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, Steve Reich, J-Pop and Vanilla Fudge. They have also expressed a large interest in Hip Hop and Avant-Garde music.
