Brix & The Extricated feat. Members of The Fall

Brix & The Extricated feature original member of The Fall Brix Smith-Start on guitar and vocals, powerhouse duo Steve Hanley on bass and brother Paul Hanley on drums (‘The greatest rhythm section in rock n roll’ – Luke Haines), Steve Trafford on guitar and vocals and virtuoso Jason Brown on guitar, this is a dream line up for lovers of The Fall sound.

A live performance by Brix Smith Start and her band The Extricated to celebrate the release of her memoir “The Rise, The Fall and The Rise”. Best known for her work in The Fall at the time when they were perhaps the most powerful and influential anti-authoritarian postpunk band in the world, Brix spent ten years in The Fall before a disintegration of the band led to her exit and the end of her marriage with Mark E Smith.

Growing up in the Hollywood Hills in the ’60s in a dilapidated pink mansion her life has taken her from luxury to destitution, from the cover of the NME to waitressing in California, via the industrial wasteland of Manchester in the 1980s. Brix is also well known appearing weekly in Gok’s Fashion Fix.
