Fans of cult band The Fall will need no introduction to the members of Brix and the Extricated – the band contains four of the 66 musicians who have been in the band with Mark E Smith at some point!
Former guitarist and songwriter Brix got together with Steve Hanley, Paul Hanley, Steve Trafford and Jason Brown in 2014, initially to replay and rework Fall songs that they had written and played together in the 1980s, but the band soon started to write new material, which has culminated in a debut album, Part 2, which is out on 24 September.
Brix spoke to Paul Golder about how the band got together and how they’ve been writing and recording together.
Local Fall fans will not want to miss the band’s forthcoming shows when they Hit The South, which include a performance at Rough Trade East on Saturday 23rd September and Oslo in Hackney on Friday 3rd November.
Keep an eye on the band’s Facebook page to find out more about shows and releases.
