Climie Fisher were a UK pop duo formed by vocalist Simon Climie (born ) and former Naked Eyes keyboardist Rob Fisher ( - ). In 1988, they had a great success with two big international hit singles.
The duo are best known for the 1987 hit single "Love Changes (Everything)" which reached Number 2 in the UK and in South Africa (on re-release), Number 7 in Germany, Number 8 in Switzerland, Number 15 in Austria & Number 23 in the US, all in 1988. The hip hop-styled remix of "Rise to the Occasion" had also previously reached Number 10 in the UK singles chart and reached later Number 1 in South Africa, Number 14 in Germany, Number 17 in Sweden and Number 19 in Austria. Their last hit single was "Love Like A River" in 1989, which reached Number 18 in Austria, Number 22 in the UK and Number 54 in Germany.
Rob Fisher died on during surgery for bowel cancer, whilst Simon Climie became a producer for recording artists such as Louise, MN8 and Five Star as well as co-writer and musician on many of the more recent albums by Eric Clapton.
Half Man Half Biscuit recorded a song, "The Ballad of Climie Fisher", which recounts an entirely concocted tale of a feud between Climie and Fisher. It appears on their album Trouble Over Bridgwater.
