Stroke - Songs For Chris Knox

Stroke - Songs For Chris Knox

An all-star local and international lineup perform songs from Chris Knox’ back catalogue, including his solo work and songs by his groups The Enemy, Toy Love and The Tall Dwarfs.

Chris Knox is one of the founding fathers of NZ's alternative music scene.
From his early work with The Enemy, Toy Love and his partnership with Alec Bathgate in Tall Dwarfs to his legendary solo work and new group The Nothing, Chris Knox is recognised as one of the leading lights of
indie music and became a figurehead for the famed Flying Nun label.

Chris’ music has touched many around the world, with artists from Stephen Malkmus (Pavement) to Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy citing his music as influential.

Earlier this year Chris suffered a severe stroke which has left him in a long-term rehab situation. Stroke: Songs For Chris Knox, is a tribute to the man and his music – from across his catalogue – performed by friends, past bandmates and admirers of Chris.

Some of the biggest names in indie music in NZ and around the world have given their time and energies in an effort to help Chris and his family at this difficult time. All proceeds from the sales of Stroke are being donated to Chris and his family.
