Brix Smith: The Rise,The Fall & The Rise
Brix spent ten years in The Fall, described variously as radically dysfunctional and as the most influential anti-authoritarian postpunk band in the world. Then a violent disintegration led to her exit and the end of her marriage with Mark E Smith. Hollywood raised Brix has gone from luxury to destitution, from the cover of the NME to waitressing in California.
Hers is a story of constant reinvention; a singular journey of a teenage American girl on a collision course with English radicalism on her way to mid-life success in fashion and on TV.
