Brix and The Extricated release their highly anticipated debut album Part 2 following on from the early summer release of debut single Damned For Eternity. Part 2 is a terrific debut album! While having elements of vintage Fall, Brix and The Extricated also bring the raw power of the Stooges, the pop sensibility of prime Blondie, walls of big glam rock guitars and dollops of psychedelia. Formed by the visionary Brix Smith Start (vocals / guitar) and legendary bass player Stephen Hanley, Brix and The Extricated also features Paul Hanley on drums, which reignites the Hanley Brother powerhouse rhythm section. The addition of Steve Trafford on guitar has brought together these influential, former members of The Fall. Completing the line-up is hugely talented Irish guitarist Jason Brown. Increasing pressure from old and new fans alike to record fresh material spurred Brix and The Extricated to head into the studio, where they laid down 10 tracks. As anyone who has read Brix’s book The Rise, The Fall and The Rise will know, Brix is a warrior woman one moment, and the next she’s stripping off her armour and laying bare her open wounds for all to see – and this is precisely what she’s done on the resulting album. Brix vehemently spits out her lyrics over savage sliding power chords over the distinctive Hanley brothers rhythm section.
