On June 11 2009 musician, artist, father, writer, film critic & Jandal wearer Chris Knox suffered a life-altering stroke at his home in Grey Lynn, New Zealand. Everyone wanted to do something to help, so a bunch of his musician mates from New Zealand and around the world have gotten together to do what they do best to celebrate Chris' music by recording versions of his songs. The selected tracks span Chris' entire career, from the Enemy, Toy Love, and Tall Dwarfs, to his solo recordings and his most recent band the Nothing. Jay Reatard, Yo La Tengo, the Mountain Goats, the Verlaine's, Boh Runga, David Kilgour, Lambchop, Bill Callahan, Will Oldham and many more have contributed songs to the album, which has 32 tracks in all. The stunning cover was designed by Chris' fellow Tall Dwarf band mate Alec Bathgate and uses Chris' favorite color combination of yellow and black. All proceeds is going to assist Chris with his recovery.
