Brix Smith: A Spider's Web

Richard Cook, Sounds, 21 February 1987

BRIX SMITH is the girl who can't really help it: she has rich-baby eyes, heavy blonde hair, a voice that comes in giggles. It's the sort of identikit one might expect from a cheerleader, but it's the natural turf of a nervous, shrewd, faithful American who has made her second home here. Brix has patiently hollowed out a corner of British rock for herself.
