Not given lightly.

Yet another reason Chris Knox is just "a seminal figure in rock and roll everywhere" as Andrew Cox from The Fauves intones. Total Pro (watch him handle the dreaded broken string), totally humble (I love the "you've never heard of me have you? that's alright" intro) and what an a capella voice plus the hammy crowd enhancing stuff is just so obviously heart felt. From the Australian Broadcastng Corporation's Recovery (1997).

Why was this song only #13 all time in New Zealand? Knox had a stroke last Thursday. Get better soon CK! For fans of the Dunedin sound and Flying Nuns everywhere.
