Brix & The Extricated

Brix & the Extricated are a British post-punk band, formed in 2014 in Manchester, by ex-Fall members Brix Smith Start (vocals/guitar) and Steve Hanley (bass guitar).

The band formed in 2014 in Manchester, following the launch event for Steve Hanley’s autobiography The Big Midweek. Four of the five members were one-time members of The Fall: Songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Brix Smith, long-term Fall member Steve Hanley (bass guitar), his brother Paul Hanley (drums) and Steve Trafford (guitar and vocals). A fifth member, Irish guitarist Jason Brown completes the line-up. Though their live set initially consisted of Fall songs they had co-written, this quickly expanded to include the new material which featured on their debut album.

They have performed three live sessions for fellow ex-Fall member Marc Riley’s 6 Music show, played the Latitude and Rebellion festivals and completed several successful tours of the UK. They released their debut album Part 2 in September 2017 on Blang records, which was described as “One of the great indie-rock releases of the year” by Drowned In Sound.Their Autumn 2017 tour concluded with a gig at the Manchester Apollosupporting The Charlatans. Their second album, Breaking State, is due to be released on October 26th 2018 on the Grit Over Glamour label
