Guy Fixsen (born 1968, Bath, Somerset, England) is a producer/engineer/musician based in London. He is best known for his producing/engineering work with various indie rock, shoegazer, and experimental rock bands, and for forming the band Laika.

Producing/Engineering Work[edit]

Since the late 1980s, Fixsen has been a prolific producer/engineer. He has worked with the likes of My Bloody Valentine (He was one of 16 engineers to be credited on Loveless), The Breeders, Air Miami, Le Volume Courbe, Stereolab, The Pixies, Rob Ellis, Christmas, Rollerskate Skinny, The Wolfgang Press, Dog Faced Hermans, Moonshake, Throwing Muses, Unrest, The Sundays, Slowdive, House of Love, Lonelady, Ultra Vivid Scene, Lush, Chapterhouse, The Boo Radleys, Moose, Charlie Straight, Vypsaná fiXa among many others.[1]

Laika[edit]

In 1993, Fixsen formed Laika with Margaret Fiedler and John Frenett after their departure from Moonshake. Fixsen shared guitar, vocal, keyboard, programming and production duties with Fielder. The band was augmented by flautist Louise Elliott and drummer Lou Ciccotelli, and later on, Rob Ellis. Laika produced four albums and five singles for Too Pure Records between 1994 and 2003. Since their release of 2003's Wherever I Am I Am What Is Missing LP, little is known about the status of Laika. Fixsen has said the band is "taking a break" with about half an album already in the works[citation needed]. They will resume before the end of the decade.
