Biography

Starting his vocal career with the legendary unrecorded punk band The Enemy in 1977, Chris Knox has seemingly had a twisted finger in every musical pie up and down New Zealand since then. Frontman for the short-lived but energetic Toy Love and one half of the perpetually magical duo that is Tall Dwarfs - as well as recording and performing his own solo works - the so-called “Eighth Beatle” still lives in the Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn and still wears jandals onstage. Knox recently assembled The Nothing with whom he recorded and released his most recent album.

On Thursday June 11 2009 Knox was admitted to Auckland hospital suffering from a stroke. Friends and family of Chris Knox have started up a blog site aiming to keep the public updated. An album of various musicians from around the world performing Knox’s songs is currently in production with all proceeds going to Knox.

    LEGENDARY MUSICIAN!!! He is the New Zealand's John Lydon!! An amazing underrated singer/songwriter!! I f*cking love his solo work, Tall Dwarf and Toy Love (if you can get CUTS, the anthology compilation album from 2005, do it). I hope he is better.

    Wanted: a best friend who listens to Chris Knox. I like: sunset walks on the beach and hand-holding.

    It's nice to hear Jeff Mangum's voice again. Can't wait for Stroke to be released. The artists included on the tribute album really is a testament to the guy.

    He'd be such a beastly jingle writer if he wanted to be.

    Get well soon, Mr. Knox. He's still got at least 50 good albums left in him.
