Chewing On Greener Pastures

Filed under: Uncategorized @ 8:00 am

Hi All – This is the last blog post on this site – I’m moving on to greener pastures over on the new website www.chrisknox.co.nz

If you go there you’ll find clips from ‘Stroke – Songs For Chris Knox’ – we’ve put 1 minute edits on there to begin with. We were tempted to put the whole album up there as, obviously, it’s not gunna be hard to get a copy without paying for it anyway. But here at Knox Central we live with the hope that people will be old fashioned & buy the album. Despite all the download hoopla people must be still buying discs right – otherwise what are all those shops doing downtown!!??

By the way – the album will be released on Merge in the States in Feb next year & we’re working on an Australian deal at the moment too.

I hafta say a massive thank you on behalf of my friend Chris to Hayden, Kyle & Ange for setting up the site. They’ve worked really hard on it & it looks great. Over the coming months the site will be tweeked & added to as time allows. We have plans, oh yes, plans.

Thanks to everyone who’s been to this site & provided feedback to encourage me with the belief that I’m not just tappin’ plastic. Big thanks especially to Barry (discs will be in mail this week sir!). Putting the album together has been an amazing experience for me & …… well …….. ain’t music a beautiful thing!?

‘Some things you do for money, some things you do for fun,

But the things you do for love, are going to come back to you one by one’ – from The Mountain Goats album The Sunset Tree

    Fantastic. I’m ordering my copy now, rather than waiting for the U.S. Merge release (sorry Merge, I’m impatient). What’s the best way for bloggers to promote this in the ‘States four months early? Anything to help Chris out…

    Sorry for answering this one for you Roy.
    But you have to just write in the URL in your search-box at the top of the page here,…it doesn’t seem to “search” on Yahoo or Google(?). Try a direct write-in approach,….the site is “up” and very cool too!

    Downloaded my copy of Stroke this morning. It’s brilliant and I’ll be telling everyone I know to buy it! Just one question though….the Boh Runga track isn’t Not Given Lightly on my download….anyone else notice this??
