Hi Everyone – It’s been a rough time since Thursday but it’s also been amazing to see all the love and concern pouring in for Chris. Thanks so much for all your kind comments – we’re going to get a mate to read them to Chris soon! Chris is stable this morning but, sorry, we don’t really have any more detail for you today.
We’re having lots of people wanting to help in some way & we thought the best thing to do if you wanna help is to buy a Chris Knox & The Nothing album – there are two y’know, the one with a plethora of ideas shamelessly ripped-off from the Fabs called “Chris Knox and The Nothing”, and “A Warm Gun”, which NZ music journo Grant Smithies described as having Chris’ “trademark mix of tenderness and disgust”. Grant also said that “it’s the sound of somebody that is at the peak of his musical powers, still doing interesting things. It’s got his best singing on it for years. He sings one whole song in falsetto. That’s just marvellous” …… and heck who knows, you may even like ’em!
You can buy the CDs from Rhythm at Three Lamps on Ponsonby Road in Auckland or from Smoke CDs – good ol’ Peter Baker from Rhythmethod has kindly set things up to maximise the bucks going to Chris & family by foregoing his distribution fee! Whadda guy.
