CHRIS KNOX - Seizure LP
Where does one start with Chris Knox? A Musician, artist, cartoonist, director and much more, Knox is the godfather of alternative New Zealand music. While Seizure, originally released in 1988, is certainly not the start for Chris Knox it is often considered his first ‘proper’ solo album. Packed with brilliantly skewered hooks and humorously scathing lyrics, Seizure is a lo-fi mix of punk, indie rock and pop that works perfectly. With it’s DIY recording, wit and melody, Seizure highlights why Knox is considered one of New Zealand’s finest songwriters. From fronting early NZ punk band The Enemy to Toy Love and then Tall Dwarfs to helping launch Flying Nun Records recording acts like The Clean, it’s nearly impossible to over-state the impact Chris Knox has had on the modern indie scene overall.
