This week on Community Noise, we put a little bit of a spotlight on Brix Smith for the first half of the show and in the second half, random goodness will complete the hour.

Brix was the lead guitarist for The Fall in the mid-late 1980s, and is credited with leading The Fall to their greatest popularity. Saying “The Fall” and “commercial appeal” in one sentence is oxymoronic, but DJ Barnabas provides some insight to her work and projects that she had post-Fall.
