Smoke Notes

A tribute/benefit album for iconic NZ musician Chris Knox, who suffered a major stroke earlier this year.
From his early work with The Enemy, Toy Love & 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 back 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. Proceeds from the sales of 'Stroke' will go to Chris and his family.
'Stroke: Songs For Chris Knox' features songs of Chris Knox's performed by local artists such as Shayne Carter, David Kilgour, The Chills, The Mint Chicks, The Checks, Boh Runga, Don McGlashan, Sean (SJD) Donnelly, Jordan Luck, The Finn Family, The Bats, The Verlaines, The Nothing, Tall Dwarfs and many more; and international artists such as Will (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) Oldham, Bill (Smog) Callahan, Lou (Sebadoh) Barlow, Yo La Tengo, AC Newman, Lambchop, The Mountain Goats, Jay Reatard, Portastatic and many more!
