The Rise, The Fall and The Rise

We’re very pleased to announce a special acoustic performance and selected readings by Brix to celebrate the release of her memoir “The Rise, The Fall and The Rise” on Wednesday May 11th at 10pm.

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.
