In discussion with Thurston Moore
on her new book The Rise, The Fall and The Rise
The Rise, The Fall, and The Rise is Brix Smith-Start's extraordinary memoir of her childhood in weird 1960s Hollywood to joining, in 1983, The Fall, Manchester's most polarizing and influential bands of the '77 punk rock revolution. It would arguably be that band's most galvanizing period. She went on to marry the singer Mark E. Smith which led to upheaval and divorce. Brix, post-Fall, went through a myriad of life changes and today is married and living in north London, playing music, appearing on television and WRITING!
