Brix & The Extricated’s visit to Leicester was a highlight of 2016, and they return this November. The band is fronted by Brix Smith-Start (ex-member of The Fall, ex-partner of Mark E Smith), contains a rhythm section made up of the legendary Hanley brothers (ex-members of The Fall), and is completed by Steve Trafford (ex-member of The Fall) and Jason Brown (who has never been in The Fall). It would be very easy to pass them off as one of many bands from a time long ago who are idly doing the circuit, but please don’t do that. They may be of a more mature age but there is fresh, new music mixed in amongst some classic Fall songs.
Brix & The Extricated play the Cookie on Saturday 11th November. Get tickets here.
