Legendary NZ Artist / Producer Chris Knox Had A Stroke

Chris Knox, pioneer in recording all the early Flying Nun records and front man of The Enemy and Tall Dwarfs had a stroke this past Thursday. His family and friends have set up a blog (which I linked below) to learn updates and basically all things Chris Knox .

I blogged about CHris Knox back in October. There was a time recently, that I could not get enough of the New Zealand/ Flying Nun indie stuff from the late 70s and early 80s. Seriously, The Clean (which Mr. Knox recorded) played all night every night for a while. A lot of people don't know of this scene, and it's ok, but you gotta check it out if you don't! It will truly make you happy. The Chills, The Verlaines, The Clean, The Enemy, everything on Flying Nun. Below I posted a mini rock doc (I love rock docs) covering the early parts of Chris Knox' musical roots. Check it out, then check it ALL out.

New Video For Mika Miko's "I Got A Lot (New New New)"

Mika Miko is the best punk band in California. Most fun, most cool, and for the sake of sounding dumb, MOST PUNK. Everything about them always means fun. Their records, their live shows, their videos. Always fun. The new video is for 'I Got A Lot (New New New)' and was directed by No Age's Randy Randall with Lana Kim. FUN. Peep it please.
